PATTERSON’S EMBARRASSMENT CONTINUES
Texas Monthly can write some pretty good stuff and they can write some pure trash, but no matter which one they write they have a large readership. Their January edition will prove to add some more embarrassment for Liberty County and our absentee sheriff, Henry Patterson and one of the Harris county men he has hired since he took office (Rex Evans).
Here is a quote from Texas Monthly in the January 2012 issue:
“I see Dead Law Enforcement Careers.” Texas Monthly goes on to say, “News sites around the world posted near real-time updates as Liberty County Sheriff’s Officers and FBI agents mounted urgent, high-profile searches of two properties on consecutive days, fruitlessly looking for a purported mass grave of up to thirty bodies. The law officers later admitted that the operation was based on unsolicited tips from a self described psychic.”
We are yet to see Sheriff Patterson books and find out whether or not he is using money and assets from criminal seizures to pay for rogue investigations by unlicensed private contractors or whether or not political hacks are on the payroll to try and fight bad public relations from things like this Texas Monthly story.
Therefore, until Patterson deals from the top of the deck we can assume Liberty County has more embarrassments to endure. It doesn’t take a psychic to know there are unusual things going on under Patterson’s leadership. Patterson has until early April to prove to the public otherwise or to paint his two opponents as worse than he is.
