Not that it will really stop him, he's a poacher.

I had to laugh at the sentence for the poacher. It seems really appropriate.

That the game warden got off is just plain bias. He should have been fired and had the same sentence.

I think that sentence is awesome! And no, it probably won't stop him from being an outlaw, but now he's a felon. And, if he steps out of line in the next 5 years, he'll probably end up doing full time on the 5 years.

The penalty sounds excessive to me.

The hypocrisy is quite obvious. Do as I say, not as I do.

At least one of the criminals got justice.

I've always believed that Fried was kept on because he was shot. If they fired him, the state couldn't pay his medical bills. I'll bet he would have been fired had he been caught poaching but uninjured. An overwhelming majority of those in the TPWD LE Division feel the same way you guys do.

Maybe so, but they still got him featured on one or more episodes of Lone Star Law. So not only is he a coyote guarding the hen house, he is getting good publicity for being the guard.

I was watching Lone Star Law and when I saw him I changed the channel.

18k in restitution but someone could high fence that sucker in with no restitution. Free

Not siding with the poacher by any means just find it ironic.

Not real sure why Fried wasn't demoted or lost his job but they have "quietly" cleaned house of a few bad apple GW in the last few years.
