ETJ

Just a correction on your assertion that the ETJ has ANYTHING to do with crime control and public safety. It doesn't! ETJ only has to do with zoning and planning so that the future growth corridor of a given city "looks" like the city wants it to as it grows. It was done in response to the fact that most counties did NOT have planning and zoning.
Law enforcement is directly tied to tax revenues of the citizens that live within the jurisdiction of the town/city limits.
Again, ETJ is an excuse the sheriff should be providing law enforcement coverage at this private home that doesn't pay city taxes. And the fine senator should be calling 911 for the fastest response rather than personal cell phones. The Tabor City police are NOT his private army.
If a patrolman or deputy were closer to the scene, 911 operators would be able to dispatch the fastest response, not the "personal" assistant RC wants to deal with situations largely of his own making.
