Beware if you park you boat trailer and vehicle at the Lake Palestine Motor Inn on Hwy 155 as last Saturday my truck had the window knocked out of it causing $1300 in damages to window and door and took miscellaneous items from the truck. Another vehicle there also had rods and items stolen out of their truck also breaking out the glass as well. This happened at 240pm last weekend in broad daylight!.Please call Coffee City police if you have any info to share with them as I was the 5th vehicle since Mothers Day to have this happen. The two thieves were in a grey GMC pu as witnesses saw them pull in and leave. Suggest use another ramp as the hotel has no video at the ramp you pay to launch at.

That sucks. Hate thieves. Karma will catch up to them if the law doesn't.

Sounds like another case of idiots trying to commit suicide. Help them.

Henderson county is big and the sheriff dept isn't. Meth is realitively cheap and makes people in poor situations feel great about where they are. I live right down the road from flat creek. I see it every day and it makes me sick. But it's everywhere.

I hear ya on that. I spent every summer for about 8 years in that area late 70s early 80s. My parents still have a house in Point Royal. It was shady back when I was a kid, Mr. Ashcrafts (Crafts Store on 315) son was deep in all the "Smith County Justice" stuff. It looks to have gone downhill even further. But with the new developments in Caney area, that area will eventually clean up. The new marina in Flat Creek (Twin Oaks) looks like it's going to be nice.

Twin Oaks West, or whatever it is just across 315, is very interesting. I won't post the address up, but about 12 boathouses back from the bridge on the left, on Sand Jack Road, there's a pier with so much junk on it it looks like they tried to have a garage sale on it. There's a broke down trailer house and a shack, a couple of broke down vehicles in the yard and lots of assorted yard art. Careful fishing that dock, I got hung on some line hanging down and while untangling it, 3 or 4 people came running out of the shacks, then running back in, then a guy comes out with a pistol. I look up and he's drawn down on me.

That would be a good lot to buy and scrape clean. grin

Going good, just need more prisons and cops.

Before anyone decides to go all "The Rifleman" on someone breaking into your truck, I'd be 200% sure you knew all of the definitions of the terms that are mentioned in Chapter 9 of the Penal Code.

Sec. 9.42. DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:

(1) if he would be justified in using force against the other under Section 9.41; and

(2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:

(A) to prevent the other's imminent commission of arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime; or

(B) to prevent the other who is fleeing immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from escaping with the property;


The way I read the definitions, someone simply breaking into a vehicle isn't burglary or robbery, so if you want to play Chuck Connors, it'd better be during the nighttime. I personally, don't want to risk a manslaughter charge over someone simply taking stuff. Now, if you approach them and they pull out a weapon, that's a different ballgame.

Lots of folks talk about it. Few EVER do it. Thankfully, because the few who do typically end up losing it all in legal fees.
