SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) – A full house and a busy agenda in Grayson County Court Tuesday morning.

One of those elements was that the commissioners vote on the withdrawal of Dusty Wainscott’s weapon and badge. His family were present when the court unanimously voted to withdraw them.

Wainscott has worked for the Grayson County Sheriff‘s Office since 2008 as an investigator. He collapsed and died in the line of duty on September 8. Wainscott left behind a wife and other members of his family.

“It is a small token of our gratitude for him who gave his life to his community and that is exactly what he did,” said Grayson County Sheriff Tom Watt.

The sheriff’s office must also fill another hole. Commissioners voted unanimously to remove K-9 Thor due to a health issue and have him live with his master.

The Sheriff’s Office is paying for a new K-9 thanks to all of Thor’s hard work.

“It’s a great law enforcement to allow law enforcement to use the proceeds of crime to buy a crime fighting pledge, so the drug money Thor seized will be used to buy it. the next dog, ”Sheriff Watt said.

A historic group was also present in court on Tuesday morning. The group wanted a historical marker to educate people about the Sherman riots of 1930. They worked to have this marker on the agenda for over 6 months.

There was no vote on this point. Grayson County Judge Bill Magers said he wanted more facts about the event, so another committee was formed.

Sherman Mayor David Plyler said, “form a group of citizens to examine a historical marker of the location, how we can do it respectfully and historically accurate to describe the event”.

The group members were not satisfied with the result. Melissa Thiel said: “I don’t know why they need another committee because they never told us or given us a reason why they won’t put on the agenda and vote”.
