Thanks for having the intestinal fortitude to apologize! TWRA wildlife officers are some of the best in the US. So, next time, take a breath before berating them!
I might not tell the telemarketing folks what I think of you and your paper next time they call.
And, by the way, don't forget to apologize for that stupid NRA comment!
Mr Cook,since when did you become a spokesperson for hunters and fishermen? It is simply against the law to fish without a license...period!
And, if the person arrested said his license had expired two days ago, he knew he was breaking the law...period!
And, you commented you had fished many times without a license. Does that mean you condone not having one? Does it mean it is OK for those guys to fish with a hand line or expensive rod and reel without a license?
My guess is your dad, Dan, would be rolling over in his grave if he could read this story. Your dad never condoned fishing without proper permits no matter what skin color!
No matter how hard you try, your efforts to make this a Zimmerman/Martin type of issue is an absolute failure!
