Texas Ghostrider Myth or Legend?

This Blog has gone dark for over a year. Did it exist in the first place? Did The Texas Ghostrider exist? I can't answer those questions other then I spotted some odd ties in H Town. The Texas Ghostrider may exist or not.

I do know he has moved on from the old. He is divorced now, he has been living in a fifth wheel trailer for over a year and he has found peace with himself. He may still be fighting the forces of evil that sociaty throws his way. He may still fight for the victims of crimes that can't fight for themselves. He still may ride the roads in wonder. But he has found peace for himself.

He still has issues with leaving his son and ex wife, but he knew he had to for self preservation. He does see his son and tries to be a big part of his son's life. Some will call him a coward for riding away, Some will hate him. Some realize he made the toughest decision that he ever has. Some realize, seeing the death and distruction that the human race has took a toll on him and he had to ride to survive.

Some gathered around him in support. Some knew he did what was best for him and his son. Some came close to him after the divorce. Some love him, others hate him. Some will never realize what he has been through. Some knows what he has been through and holds him, tells him he is loved.

Myth or Legend? for some he is........

For others.........

He is just a man.......

For one.......

He is dad......

For me? He is a rider on the wind.......

The Wind is calling his name.....

The Ghostrider Rides Away

Yes folks, The Ghostrider is riding away. Due to the atmosphere, it is unwise to continue writing the blog. Departments and the media is cracking down on police blogs. What that means is I don't want to be discovered. An officer posted something on a social media site and it went national with the AP News Service. The job is first.

Secondly, The hardest decision I made is I left home today. I hooked up the trailer and moved out. I hope things will work out, maybe with some therapy it might. Every ones reaction was "because you work too much". That is not a cause of the leaving, it was a way I could cope. So My life will be filled with drama for a while. I will not delete the blog entirely just in case I decide to post something. I also want to stalk y'all blogs and maybe write a comment.

For those of y'all who do the facebook thing sent me your info so I can friend you. That is tame on there and just a way to keep up with peoples current activities, no posts that are job specific, I do broad posts to keep in line with departmental policy.

I salute each and everyone of my "follower's" and thank you for stopping by.

As y'all can see I have deleted the majority of my posts. I guess I am the worse kept secret around the department and in this area as who I really am. The Command Staff or IA has not contacted me yet but I figure it will be just a matter of time.

I found that the Houston Chronicle had a link to my blog. I never intended for this blog to blow up like it has. I just wanted to vent by writing. Not in my wildest dreams did I think I would get the following that I have. I never imagined meeting people from all over the world. I am truly lucky and blessed.

So decisions, decisions. I can not continue to write what I want to write. I can not explain how messed up the criminal justice system is and how messed up police departments can be. I can not write about what I see and hear out on the streets. The American public has freedom of speech, a cop don't.

So what do I do? Do I just post tie pictures and meal reviews? Do I write about riding my motorcycle and those adventures? Do I still post caption pictures? How about all the pretty girl pictures? What is to far? When do I cross the line?

Do I comment on officer safety and training issues? How about issues that are not talked about, like suicides, the divorce rate and the rate of cops drinking themselves to death? What will I be able to get away with? What will get me in trouble with my department or get me subpoenaed to court?

If I can't go balls to the wall do I even go at all? I have to decide what to do. I have a lot of life changing decisions that will be made with in the next week or two (my own set deadline) and this blog is only one of them.

Tie Post 13

This tie post comes from "The Valley" Collection. This is a rare look at this collection, he hides in the shadows of day shift, never seen but always there. He takes care of his "people" and has connections everywhere. This tie means business.

Tie Post 12

I was in an evening shift Sgt's office tonight, discussing a case involving his people. He offered me a Dr Pepper, but I had to decline. I did not want to make my Coca-Cola Polar Bear mad.

Tie Posts what does that have to do with cops? If you are new to the site, Howdy and Welcome. These ties came out of a plan that a couple of us schemed up. To read the full account go here (http://texasghostrider.blogspot.com/2009/06/neckties-and-fashion.html). To the rest of my readers I have some more ties coming!

Tie Post 10 - He's Da Man

It has been a really busy and long week. I was going to do a Tie Vote but when he wore this tie, I knew he won. I did not get a picture of him wearing it, but I can testify to the fact that he did, and for his entire shift.
This tie is a part of the "Harrisburg" collection, We are doing out part in supporting the local economy, two dollars at a time.
