Thrall, Texas, Police Chief Responds to Art Acevedo

I graduated from Thrall High School in 1970 and have not had any real association with the town since. Still, I like the way Thrall Police Chief Whitworth thinks.

I have followed Chief Acevedo for many years and respect his experience and years of service but this is disheartening. I too am sickened by the loss of lives due to gun violence, reckless driving, drunk driving, suicide, drug overdose, child abuse and many other ways lives are lost. I never recall the Chief unfriending drunk drivers, human traffickers, drug dealers or law breakers in general, only lawful gun owners and those that stand up for them. I know I do not have the years of experience or the education that Chief Acevedo has but I was a gun owner long before I was a badge carrier and I will defend that right with my last breath if required.

I don't know if you left the first sentence out on purpose, I thought I would post it anyway. I also like what he said.

A. is just another lib/socialist/commie parading as an LEO.

He forgot he doesn't rule - though he'd sure like to...

He comes from a country where only LEO and military have guns and they line you up against a wall and murder you. Common citizens have no rights. He is a Cuban by birth and apparently still believes that the rest of us should have no rights.

Most APD officers I knew pretty thoroughly hated Acevedo.

I've always thought Acevedo had higher aspirations.

Also, he can't unfriend the drunk drivers, imagine all the politicians he'd have to unfriend.... :lol:

I have followed Chief Acevedo for many years and respect his experience and years of service
I have followed President Daniel Ortega for many years and respect his experience and years of service. :evil2:
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

The handful of folks that I know from T’rall are all very sensible.

Interesting statute, relating to Citizen Acevedo:
“I, _______________________, do solemnly swear (or affirm), that I will faithfully execute the duties of the office of ___________________ of the State of Texas, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and of this State, so help me God.”
https://www.tml.org/legal-qna/2010September-LFC.pdf

And the TPA Code of Ethics:
CODE OF ETHICS

AS A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, my fundamental duty is to serve the community; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all persons to liberty, equality and justice.

I WILL keep my private life unsullied as an example to all, and will conduct myself in a manner that does not bring discredit to me or to my agency. I will maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. Honest in thought and deed in both my personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department. Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty.

I WILL never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, political beliefs, aspirations, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminals, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities.

I RECOGNIZE the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of the police service. I will never engage in acts of corruption or bribery, nor will I condone such acts by other police officers. I will cooperate with all legally authorized agencies and their representatives in the pursuit of justice.

I KNOW that I alone am responsible for my own standard of professional performance and will take every reasonable opportunity to enhance and improve my level of knowledge and competence.

I WILL constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession...LAW ENFORCEMENT.
Violation of Professional ethics and his Oath of Office...?
