    Probably an Obama supporter and a true democrat. All she was doing was redistributing the wealth. Just like the democrats preach.

      Why do you show your ignorance by bringing Obama up every time there is a negative news story. Some of you need to grow up.

      Hello Mr. Hoover: After reading your statement I felt compelled to inform you that my accusation is FACT. I was the person/employee arrested by Temple Police while defending my self from a Drug user and his wife; my daughter watched in horror while these people beat on me. When Sgt. Torres came out of our Head Quarters Mr. Juan Seda was pulling on my hair instead of Sgt. Torres Arresting him for clearly assaulting me he just began to have a conversation with him. Sgt. Torres than LIED to the Department Head that he had given me a Direct Order to Stand Down which he NEVER gave such order. What Temple Police than did was to Terminate me and also one of my Best Friend whom came to the location to check on my well being. After almost 1 yr of his Termination he was able to Win his Hearing with back pay. Temple Police Dept. will only assign 4 Police Officer during the week and 3 Police Officers on weekends and on Evening Shifts. All this is done while the so called UNION allows Management to whatever they want. When a Union Member goes to the Union their reply is “MANAGEMENT HAS THE RIGHT”. What is the point of paying Union Dues if the Union is selling Union Members out to Management. I even went a far as contacting the President of the University with this matter and Mrs. P. Weaver never replied nor made any contact with me. My only hope is that the News Media does contact me so that I may given them all the proof they need to verify how CORRUPT TEMPLE POLICE DEPARTMENT IS.

    This Story is sad, but now Temple Police Dept. will expect their 4 police officer to start making Illegal Ped Stops. What the Media doesn’t know is how Temple Police Dept. only has 4 Police Officers # 1 (Vehicle 274 #2 – Zone 13 (which is on foot patrol) #3 Zone 15 (Which he is stationed at the ER and #4 Zone 16. How can Medical Staff believe they are Safe if Temple Police has continued to hide this fact. Temple Police Head of the Dept. has connections with the media and everything is kept a secret. Temple Police is a corrupt Department who the News Media need to investigate and find that this message is stating in a fact. They can Arrest one of their own for defending themselves while being assaulted by two people, and Fired that employee while the other person whom was also an employee was never fired from his job.
