James Oakley, you did nothing wrong with your comments!

Just wanted to let you know, being politically correct makes me sick. Bravo to your comments on the San Antonio officer shooting, stay strong.

Regardless of what you think of political correctness, an elected official is sworn to uphold the laws in place. This is a very poor example of leadership.

Just about anything you choose to say can be twisted into what liberals like to call racist, but most sane people take a comment in context and at face value. Carry on and don't be concerned with those who choose to spend their life offended.

Amen. He was simply thinking of our overcivilized society as opposed to the way they handled the horse thieves in Lonesome Dove.

A rope and a tree has no care for the color of the criminal, period. It is a form of punishment for the ultimate crime that has been around longer than our country. Race has absolutely nothing to do with it.

"Execution by hanging was the most popular legal and extralegal form of putting criminals to death in the United States from its beginning. Brought over to the states from our English ancestors, the method actually originated in Persia (now Iran) about 2,500 years ago"

What is it with people and their opinions about what others are truly thinking when they say something? No one knows what he truly meant except him. Does he have a track record of being racist? Does he have a track record of lying? And the list of questions goes on. Have you never been misunderstood because someone misinterpreted something you said? This whole racism thing has just gotten so far out of hand it's laughable. If the murderer was white and he made the same comment, would he be in the hot seat now? OF COURSE NOT!!! I'm sorry, but you who believe you are God and know someone's heart and mind (without probably even knowing the person) should take a look in the mirror. We live in an unforgiving world where no mistakes are permitted. One mistake and you're toast. All the good you have done is completely forgotten and you are forever haunted by that mistake! What is wrong with this picture?

I am wondering who is Cristi Clement and why on earth would she lodge a complaint and cause a hearing for disciplinary action?
She should be reprimanded for wasting the time of the board.

She is district 1 rep on pec board. Her district comprises the baby pin and safe space crowd. She had no choice but to file since the whining was so loud.

It's sad that this kind of stuff has spread throughout our nation. Despite that, the board voted 6-0 to do this investigation. No one has the spine for fear they will be labeled a racist. What a complete waste of time & money.

Shooting a police officer is a heinous act! Good grief, are we at a place where murder is so common place? We all should be outraged at a shooting of a policeman - and NOT what was said about it! It was outrageous, period. Sadly, we're arrived at a place in this country where you can't state an opinion without offending someone. Grow up, America!

Not sure if you have seen the news this week but they voted 2 to 1 to remove his status as vp but he will still be a board member.

How does someone of Cristi Clements character get removed from office? She did the people a great disservice. What a waste of our dollars and time, she needs to be removed.

Now throw Kathy Scanlon in the mix. This is someone who thought Mr. Oakley should be removed from office??? Are you serious Kathy? Where does this thought process come from...please let us know your reasoning.
