Having a bad month is no excuse. We all have a responsibility in life. No one knows him like the family, I could see this coming. I wish the best, but no one can help him, buy himself.

I've known Bruce since he and I were 12 in Louisville, KY. He served admirably in the US Army. He is a great brother that sinned. Any of you not sinned? Good guy - Let It Be!!!

Bruce and I went through Leadership Granbury together. He may be having a bad month but he's still a stand up guy. Whatever's going on Bruce, I know you'll shake it. Hang in there buddy it will all work out and you have alot of people pulling for you!!!

Bruce Espin is in no way a stand-up guy, leader, or as he has lived for many years "Above The Law". I will be the first to admit that on first impression Bruce is very impressive, but in hindsite what impresses me the most is how he managed to con an entire department, and community. I was an officer that was asked to put my ass on the line many times for Bruce, and the city of Granbury, and I am sorry that I did. Bruce you got exactly what you deserved, Karma is a bitch.

Bruce is a crook and manipulator. They knew about his drug problem for 6 months before, that he was mishandling evidence. He enjoyed the protection from the sheriff. I can Say that because I turned his ass in and got fired for it. Now he and Mr. Mayo have criminal charges on their records. Karma is a bitch there boys

All of you that are standing behind this "out standing officer" are complete MORONS!!! If it were just some random person off the street u would all be cheering to have their asses put away. He needs to be treated like every other drug or alcohal abuser in granbury. LIKE SHIT!!! he deserves every bit of the third degree and NOTHING LESS!!!

what many may not know but back in the 80's there was two brothers running the show at the S.O. Larry and Berry Carter. They as well were crooked to a degree of holding a gun to an 17 year olds head playing Russian Roulette in order to get him to set up other kids with drugs they seized on the streets. This is but the tip of the iceberg. Then Sheriff Edwin T. was the fall guy for there activity, and guess who was working at the P.D. Bruce Espin who I myself witnessed him drop drugs into a car only to have a reason to arrest the subject. Make no mistake there was a cover up with Bruce at the S.O. from Guns to Drugs to lies I myself witnessed. I could write a book with all i have seen in this town!!!!!!!
