Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls made it clear looters could leave his county in a body bag.

“We support the Second Amendment here in Fort Bend county, and there are many of us that are armed. I would caution those that want to come and prey on our people here in Fort Bend County that are suffering so much right now. You may want to stay out of Fort Bend County because you could leave this county in a bag,” Nehls said during a Saturday appearance on Fox News.


That is what Texas is all about. A sheriff with a massive cowboy hat on national television telling the criminals to stay away from his people or it could cost them their lives.

It doesn’t get much more blunt and straight forward than that. If criminals want to loot in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, I wouldn’t suggest doing it anywhere near Nehls, his deputies or the people who live in his county. They mean business.
