Except for Tenaha’s mayor, none of the defendants in the lawsuit, including Shelby County District Atty. Linda Russell and two Tenaha police officers, responded to requests from the Tribune for comment about their search-and-seizure practices. Lawyers for the defendants also declined to comment, as did several of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit.

No doubt about it. (U.S. 59) is a thoroughfare that a lot of no-good people travel on. They take the drugs and sell it and take the money and go right back into Mexico,” said Bowers, who’s been Tenaha’s mayor 54 years. What!! mayor for 54 years!! Besides corrupt city officials what can you say about the residents who vote the same guy in for over half a century? I say sue the city, bankrupt them and put the guilt in jail. And people talk about corruption in Mexico…this is in our back yard!
