You Gotta Get Up Pretty Early to Ask John Wiley Price About His Giant Car Collection

Categories: Cover Story, Crime

Schutze is taking in commissioners court this morning; it's part of his summer local-government internship program. I see John Wiley Price got there early -- why, there's a Channel 8 cameraman chatting him up as he walks into work 'round 5:30 in the a.m. First and only question's about all those cars formerly belonging to bad guys -- the very same ones Kevin Krause first wrote about back during the summer of '09 that were also mentioned in the feds' search warrant.

JWP is no doubt racist; but as a white free thinker i like JWPrice' style.

Blacks in South Dallas and others love him and them and i hate to see him go down. He may not but sadness will be all over the hoods.

I appreciate blacks more than a s### load of hispanics speaking their "exotic" language that you and i will be forced to learn.

I tend to despise many whites BTW.

I wish John Wiley price well.

Ah, this all makes sense now. This is where Driver's "Select" gets their inventory.

Price is on County Bail Bond board who approves Bail Bond agency to write bonds in Dallas County.To receive cars or land from Bail Bond company approved by his board should represent a conflict of interest.How does Price know when a Bond company has a vehicle forfeiture?All forfeiture money normally goes into county general fund.

Its so sad

Amazing interview with JWP. First time I have EVER heard him answer a question directly, calmly, and respectfully. No yelling, complaining, race-baiting, or showboating.Must really be scared...

Price owns a used car lot that does legitimate business.  If he was running a stolen (under the color of law) car ring using resources of that legitimate business... this just became a RICO case.

Sooo...

How do I get a cool luxury car for cheap with a clean title?

Sounds like a pretty neat way.

I would choose CSI's Gary Dourdan to play JWP.

Dourdan, like Price, is a car aficionado and Lionel Richie probably can't act.

I'm still waiting for the meat, who cares about the sizzle.There must be probable cause for the Feds to issue search warrants, so there must be a there there.Who's gonna play JWP in the BET movie of the week?

Noooooo, he got luxury cars with dirty titles from dirty characters (prisoners at the county jail).

Thought it telling that The DMN, never followed up on this story, a hugh large caliber blood splattered smoking gun. Not surprising though: I wonder how much Belo has "invested" in JWP?

So we know you made a lot of money over time, thats not the problem.  I find it wierd that these meetings are held in the case of lost titles or when you dont know who the original owner/seller was, yet News8 seems to know who the cars belonged too.  Its all just fishy

You haven't seen very many interviews with him then. 95% of the time he's perfectly civil, and unlike many politicians he will actually answer questions fairly directly.

It's that darn other 5% that seems to cause the problems...

I have never been a JWP fan, but the perception & the reality of him are two different things. JWP has always known how tp play the media to his advantage. Even when they were against him...

" Lionel Richie probably can't act. "

Really? he "acted" like a singer his whole career

Yup.  I'm right there with ya.  Nothing but sizzle here so far. 

So the guy owns nice cars.  He's had a six figure income for almost 3 decades.

I'd wager this isn't what the feds are hanging their hat on.
