This is just beyond crazy. We can’t even keep up with all the problems coming out of the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office now has its third erroneous release for 2019. The mistake happened on January third. It doesn’t seem that the Sheriff’s Office realized right away that a mistake had been made. Either that or they tried to keep the public from finding out. The mistake was reported on January 30th.
Andrew Taylor Ford was in the Bexar County jail on a misdemeanor charge. Instead of being released when he was done with the processing on the Bexar County charge, he was supposed to go to San Patricio County for their charge. According to the Beaumont Enterprise article a hold was supposed to be placed on Ford. The article says that the hold was overlooked.
Fortunately Ford surrendered to his probation officer in San Patricio County. It’s unbelievable that we have to depend on criminals to do the right thing because the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, under Sheriff Javier Salazar, can’t be trusted to do their jobs correctly.
Enough with the blaming of the staff Sheriff Salazar. It was never like this before. Other Bexar County sheriffs had their problems but nowhere near to the level as what is happening under your administration. It’s time to take some responsibility.
