Reblogged this on The way I see things ….
Further reading clarifies that this occurred in Texas county Missouri. Still it’s scary to consider that they live among us and have authority to totally disrupt or even end our lives.

Y’all realize these creeps are from Texas County, MISSOURI and not the RepublIc of Texas ,right?
Not a clue, but thanks for the enlightenment
