  1. We never had these out of town criminals, carrying unlawful weapons, invading our town until all the subdivisions started overcrowding us! Most of them moved here to get away from crime in the cities, but it seems that some of the criminals followed them. There are crimes of all nature that we’ve never experienced before! Our Police Force is working very hard to apprehend a lot of them and I commend them all!!

    1. It won’t get any better because the system doesn’t punish criminals. We have millions who have illegally entered the country. But instead of punishing them, the government gives them all kinds of free stuff….so then they want them to vote for them…the cycle continues.

    2. Most of the arrests taking place in Brenham are on US 290, people driving through town and getting pulled over for speeding by radar units. Yes, there are locals being arrested, but the vast majority are passing through town and don’t live in Brenham.
