All the blogs I've been reading sound like they were written by a 5 year old. Not one of you know what you're talking about. No motorcycle gang "Moved" to Levelland, the founder, Bobby Froman has always lived in Levelland. Just because he was arrested, like the other people, doesn't mean he will be found guilty. Most of you are right as to everyone knowing what goes on in Levelland, I have lived here for over 40 years, but I also know that the criminal mischief doesnt start and end with the law enforcement. There are parents out there right now that know your kids are using, selling, involved in some way in drugs. You all woke up this morning in your nice houses denying you are part of the problem. You all sat in your nice pews in the many churches in Levelland on Sunday morning, knowing your kids didnt even come home last night they were so high. All of you want to talk about the problem in Levelland, but none of you want to admit that you are a part of it. If you rely on the law to stop your problems, youre in trouble, maybe they should shake a few more trees in the Hockley County DA office for starters. Our mayor sells your kids alcohol for Christ sakes. So all of you just keep setting on your high horses and blaming everyone else for your problems, but if there wasnt a demand in Levelland, there wouldnt be a supply. Anyone heard of innocent until proven guilty?

Dazed,
This is a topic forum, not a blog. The Mayor no longer owns the beer store. You probably have not read the indictments--GUILTY. The only thing you probably got right is parental responsiblity, or lack there of, but that lack of love for ones own children is prevelant across this nation. We aren't blaming all of our problems on this situation but I think we all agree this is a good place to start. Your 40 yrs in Levelland shows. You sound bitter.

I have read the indictments. I have also had the pleasure to attend a jury trial where the man was indicted for charges that we wont speak about that almost killed my family, still the verdict in hockley co..not guilty even with indictment...

Truth hurts when it does not coincide with our own reality. I guess ignorance is bliss for some. Gordon perhaps was very benevolent in many facets of his life, but impedeing federal investigations involving the traffic of weapons & drugs makes him a criminal. Truth is truth whether a jury says it's so or not. Dazed, are you a lover of Truth? Or do you love your own reality more?

Wire taps are pretty solid, & I wouldn't be surprised one bit if this doesn't go to trial at all. Too much damning evidence already.

I am not telling you he is innocent, but I'm not the one to judge him, and I know better than anyone that the truth is the truth even when found not guilty, ok maybe I am ticked at the system. Gordon always said........you do the crime, you do the time.... and maybe he will do his, ya, I guess I am ticked at the system. My own reality went out the door with the no guilty verdict I mentioned above, I just think even in Levelland, there has to be a judge and it aint me

Sorry, topic forum, not blog. I'm new to this, if my opinon counts to you, then listen to what I'm saying. My dad was a leader in the Levelland community for many years. I wasnt always on the right side of the law, its much better to be on the right side than the wrong side, it's just getting kind of hard to recognize the good from the bad nowdays

No worries Dazed. I can understand your frustrations. Remember justice is not always taken care of in this earthly life, & jurys don't always get it right. If this even goes to trial it won't be in Levelland & it will be Federal Prosocuters doing the job. It takes faith to trust that all wrongs will be dealt with at the end of time. It takes spiritual maturity. Good luck.

I think I have spiritual maturity, why would you assume I didnt, even us Christians have our problems, if everyone were perfect we wouldnt need the church. Sometimes, when it involvles your family, you want justice now, not at the end of time. You have no idea what my family has gone thru in Levelland, so maybe I'm allowed to be bitter, doesnt say in the Bible that you cant be bitter, it just says you must overcome it.

My point is, if you or anyone else in Levelland are waiting for the Levelland Police or the SO to ride in on a white horse and save your day, youre going to be left in the cold, you have to save your own day, you have to have your own morals and weed the drugs out of your own life, no one can do that for you

You don't know how bad the court house needs to be investigated. Along with the Police Dept. And no says anything because they don't know how who to trust. If you remember a few years ago we had the Texas Rangers come in and they were suppose to clean up Levelland and it got it worse.

I know, everyone in Levelland is either scared of retaliation or in the pocket of the court house. So who's going to do the investigation
