A little justice for W. Texas--Sheriff convicted

Winkler County Sheriff Robert Robers was convicted of both felonies and misdemeanors in the latest saga of the disgraceful story from Winkler County Texas. Something you don't see (or at least don't hear about) happened in this case. After the jury convicted, a bargain on the sentence was worked out with the judge. IMHO, this suggests more of the "good ol boy" system which got this fiasco started. At least one witness blamed the legal pursuit of 2 female nurses (who were later cleared and collected $ damages) as the workings of the local "good ol' boy" system.

  1. Everything this sheriff did against these two nurses, who were duty bound themselves by state law to report questionable medical practices, was wrong and totally beyond his official capacity. He well deserves the stupid award. Maybe a little time behind bars will help with some greatly needed self-reflection.
