I realize that I'm not speaking of this chief that has been fired because of his incompendence.

What I would ask any and all posters in Overton.

Can any of you tell us WHY Roger Dale Gentry was ask to resigne as chief of poliece in Overton.

I know that it has been some twenty years since he was employed there.
This man is a sorry person and there is much to be said about his criminal action and lack of investigating through out the years.

We would like to know WHY he was ask to resigne.

Ed Williams is an idiot and grossly incompetent

That man has zero integrity. Overton is a better place without that clown having a badge and gun.

Did he molest a child like Gentry did? You know it could take years for it to come out by the way people cover up for them.

Seems that Overton and cAss county can't get it together.
It's always a child molester for a cop or a drug user they have been protecting for years.

Then when he is convicted the Crows cry out in the court room.
Didn't the judge tell her to leave the room if she couldn't control her actions.
Those were the words I heard from Judge Burgess.
Or when they kill them self because of the abuse of drugs. People want to cry for the dope head cop. Dang!
Well the more incompetent law officers off the street the better. JMO!
Good Day!

Nothing like Texarkana Tx and the corruption that lives in Bowie county law enforcement.

I hear Bobby Lockhart got his azz kicked! HA!
Nothing he didn't have coming.

It must be the truth about Lockhart sexually harassing the man's wife.
There was no arrest. So I hear.
It is said his sorry low life morals will get him killed.

I believe that! I look forward to reading about it.
Keep your hands off people's wives man! You had it coming. ;')

There isn't one thing trust worthy of the Overton PD.
They have supported child molesting law offices.
Your whole town should be taken out an shot for allowing it to happen.

Wake Village Tx has just fired another chief of police and a police officer.
They said there are seven on the force and four are remaining.

Seems the numbers don't add up.
Could it be because the other officer resigned before any action could be taken against him over my complaint of his misconduct?

I do believe it was the reason he left.
"People should only post the truth, not the lies they want you to believe."
He was posting lies and making threats to the citizens on the Internet.
Just the facts mam!

I would say Mr. Gentry is the one blowing all the hard's he can while in Locked away just to just stay alive. ;')
It my opinion that any officer who would have taken a stand with the man as Connie Crow did in the court room would blow a person also! HA!
Just the facts MAM!

Overton may seem better without williams but his replacement clyde carter is a joke the pig couldn't find his pecker with two hands and a flashlight. back alley deals with drugdealers, they only get busted if they don't pay a tax. overton police will beat a teenager within an inch of their life over a roach or a pack of rolling paper but they let the meth dealers sell the death on the street corners.
