To all of the supporters, advocates, enthusiast, fans, patrons and groupies of Emmett, including Commissioners Mike Forte and Craig Caster, please take note of how much of a "good guy" Ballree is and, once again, how much shame he has brought to this city. Providing an automatic weapon to a felon is not only dangerous, but twice as dangerous when the felon's conviction was possession of a stolen firearm!
The support that Ballree received when first hired was beyond gracious for having such a background, but then having the audacity to commit such a crime after having a multitude of "incidents" (convicted, suspected, alleged - whatever they may be), is surly career suicide. I'm glad that he is "looking at careers outside of law enforcement" - his leave from the field will "make the world a safer place".
To Commissioner Forte, who has commented previously on these discussion boards (as tacky as that is for a city official to do) after Ballree was fired less then a week ago, stated "How sad that a man has lost his livelihood, his career and the ability to support his family and some of you feel the need to trample on his grave. How sad and small of you." I hope your eyes are as big as your ears and you can read that this scum bag has not only mis-used city resources (gasoline, vehicles, on-the-clock-employees, etc) but has also armed a convicted felon.
