Webb County commissioners will vote today on whether to accept a grant for a twin-engine helicopter through a federal surplus program.
Not to be outdone, the sheriff's department wants to top local P.D. and their recently-purchased motorized aerial lift mobile crime detection surveillance thingy with a helicopter. Merry Christmas, gentlemen. Surely you'll have the means to patrol all of Webb County much more efficiently.
One suggestion, though: please don't fly low enough to make my house shutter the way other law enforcement agencies do.
