What was the loud boom and vibrations felt in Huxley around 5PM Friday, February 21, 2020?
Update on Mr. Shires: Today I contacted the DA office to follow up on the retaliation charge. I spoke with the “investigator” whom stated he would have to find the file and it would take 30-45 mins to locate. 10 mins later he calls back to inform me the case had been closed. I said I know nothing about this. I called 2 months ago and told no new information and did not receive a call back as I was told I would. I was upset (who wouldn’t be). He told me to change my attitude. I explained I was upset (I did not yell nor curse) and if it was his family or daughter I’m sure they would act the same way. He hung up on me. So I called back, except this time I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Shires. He informed me the case was closed outside of court (which I found out was a lie, they went to court!) I knew nothing about the case until today...Mr. Shires stated he didn’t think I wanted to speak to him, therefore he never updated me. He “apologized” for his actions and how he spoke to me and handled the situation.. I explained an apology was not accepted or needed as his actions speak louder than words. Again, please make your vote count. He now wants to act apologetic after his actions have come to light. I have thought about what to say or not say, however I feel it is in the best interest of Shelby County children and tell what happened to us with Mr. Shires as DA. As most know, our son was bitten(severely) when he was 18 months old by a babysitter (I don’t have to name names, y’all know who it was)... over the span of three years, I contacted his office, texted, called cell with little response.. I will post conversations in comments.. He has no heart or concerns about the welfare of our children. He did not even know the person indicted on a felony charge did not have a court appointed attorney until I called.. He never called our family in regards to the case. I did contact the advocacy center, whom reported the case was on their monthly meeting, however he would pass over it. I find it odd, he is on the board for the advocacy center, however, chooses to continue to defer child victim cases until years later. We only knew about the trial from a letter received.. on the day of the trial, we were told he changed the felony to a misdemeanor. When asked why, his smart, cocky response, “because I can”... I stood there and cried.. I felt like a failure to my son.. I didn’t protect him.. and now I stood there helpless as I was being told by the “Shelby county DA” because he could.. my heart hurt.. he had no sympathy or concerns for my son. I appreciate the judge and her sentencing given, based on the limits of the law, however. I don’t find it funny when I open SCT and see him with his button down shirt pulled open exposing a Superman t-shirt like he is macho man as they made a arrest, knowing he is more concerned about putting on a show instead of doing his job. Mr. Shires is not for the people. He wants to stand around and look like he is doing something when he is not.. I say this to make your own opinions, but please be aware of who you elect.
