Disappointed that those of us in Fannin County who volunteer our time helping animals didn't even know this seminar was being held. Don't you think it would have been nice to be informed?

The training was for law enforcement. Sounds like they had a good turnout.

My understanding is that anyone could have attended and not everyone that was there could actually arrest people.

I know I read it on e-news, didn't know anything about it either. I would have liked to attend this also.

This is the way that the ruling class stays in command. They know they are wrong, but you can't tell them. Big Jim is in charge of this area and the ruling class supports this ass hole. What I say or you, means nothing. Small cause, but next week it will be something else you are left out of. Until someone grows a set of balls in Bonham, you will never matter. Vote these bastards out, protest, let the common man express his views. This place never heard of community law. It exists and only you can make it happen. Take back what this country is build on. Use the media, letters to new papers do wonders. Get public attention it works wonders.

Article says 52 people attended and it was held at Bonham City Hall. I imagine there was not room for more folks. Plus, Chief Bankston probably didn't want any of the local "animal advocates" there who have been publicly very critical of him and his dept. Not hard to imagine that they might have been disruptive to the training if they had been given a chance to be there. I'm amazed at how so many of the self proclaimed animal advocates in our town talk so negatively about Chief and ACO. That's no way to get change to happen. It is, however, a good way to make the ones in charge mad and not want to cooperate with you, accept your volunteer help or even invite you to meetings like this one.

For starters it was held on two different days so there was never 52 people in the room at once. While I agree that some advocates in our county have rubbed the Chief and the ACO the wrong way, others have tried to be civil. However, the Chief has never welcomed any help unless it came with an undying devotion to him and how he wants his pound run. Respect runs both ways. He runs the pound because it's his job and he gets paid for it. Local animal advocates are volunteers and do it because it's the good and right thing to do.

I agree that some of the animal advocates have been civil and certainly respect runs both ways. But the fact that several have been very negative would explain why they would not have made a public announcement or invitation to this training. That, and the fact that this was designed for law enforcement and others in the justice field, not volunteers or animal advocates.
