When the low down Garmon's corrupt behavior was coming out, I was leading the pack wanting to tar and feather both father and son. They were the biggest smear on Bartow County in it's entire history and I was leading the pack wanting to burn them at the stake. They were guilty
If these two officers turn out the same way, then I will hold the torch to burn them, too. I do not stand behind a LEO just because they wear a badge. However, I will not condemn them of anything just because they wear a badge. Until I am shown evidence they did anything wrong, other than someone's opinion, then I do not think they are guilty of anything other than doing their job.
Now somebody show me the evidence that they did wrong. Anybody.
You need to keep that Garmon name out of your mouth...both father and son have served time for what they were accused of!! You need to be worried about what is going on NOW!! That is the problem with certain people in this town they NEVER let anyone who has served time for the crime in which they were accused of move on to a new life since they have served time!!

Shouldn't the public wait on the facts before jumping on bandwagons? There has been alot of heresay and rumors involving this incident but I know for a fact that the G.B.I. nor the L.E.O. involved have released any facts to the public short of the press release which do not tell the public what happened. Anytime someone loses their life or when someone takes a life, it is a sad circumstance, let the families deal with the events before going on a public forum and bashing both sides. No knock warrants are dangerous as most of us would pull a weapon on someone entering our home and catching us off guard. Because they are dangerous, judges have to have a damn good reason to sign the no knock warrant. Even though L.E.O.'s don't knock, they still announce themselves once inside the home. So please let the facts come out and allow the families breathing room especially as the holidays are fast approaching.
I totally agree with you and for Holli and the past well it needs to stay there. The families of these victims are the ones that need to sort that. I have also learned over the years unless I actually see something for myself chances are its not true. Does it really matter how many times someone was shot?!?!?!, Shot is shot and dead is dead. I don't get everyone wanting to compare situations. All situations are different. As far as drug users that keep getting trashed on here well no one grows up wanting to be a addict believe it or not but that doesn't mean they all should be shot. They have an addiction that is not a easy thing to recover from.

excuse me but they served time for what they were CONVICTED of, not accused of. Don't water it down. They earned the title of convicted felons, they have also earned the title of being the most corrupt law enforcement officers in this state, so don't blame anybody if we don't pretend that it never happened.

When your boy Knowles was running for sheriff, you never let Millsap move on about some money spent from a credit card. Did you? You brought it up twice a day.

I am the niece of the 66 year old woman killed in Bartow County. Regardless of the things being posted we love her. And we will have to bury her next week. She was a human being killed like an animal. She was a terrific person, with the biggest heart. And now she is gone. Its funny everyone is posting things that is hearsay. We dont even know the truth yet so how would you. What if this was your family member
So who was the other person that lived with her? Was it her son?

Sorry but I won't sit back and watch all these drug users bash cops without saying something in their defense. If they agents did wrong, then they should pay the price. But as what typically happens, all the anti cop people, the LEO haters, start bashing any officer that does his or her job. They all "know for fact" blah blah....

One says there was a violent home invasion in a subdivision near this woman. Another says the home invasion was IN this woman's home. They can't even keep their distorted stories straight.

The only things I believe are what has been reported by three different news organizations including quotes from the GBI.

So why do all these people say she lived alone? Or are they just idiots that don't know a damn thing but are just making things up to make the officers look bad. Just as I thought.

Thank you very much for your answer.

Anyone who has had any training knows it is two in the chest one on the head......two shooters....do the math, someone missed once. Real simple math.
No you dumb ass, it isn't 2 anywhere or one anywhere, there is no formula, it is only the force necessary to stop the threat. That could be one shot anywhere. Once the threat is stopped then no more shots are to be used or it is excessive force! Frail, weak woman would have went down 1 shot. Total sham!!

Jingle bells let me take you to walmart and stand at the door. You'll see 475 lbs of pure frail and weak come through the door when that woman from the Guest House comes in. She could crush your balls between her tits and you'd cry like a damn baby. So shut up about frail and weak women.

Although one accurate shot will do the job, law enforcement are taught two in the chest, one in the head. The training had been around for years and is universal. Emptying an entire clip would be excessive force, 3 shots are p.o.s.t certified training.

I have a brain and use mine on a daily basis, pretty hard not to have a brain and be educated when you run not 1 but 2 companies... and I dont give a damn if the police or some random theif, if you come in my house unannounced you bet your ass I will be prepared to protect myself and family... sounds like to me the cops need more training.. dont send a rookie to do a veterans job...

The U.S.Supreme Court ruled that you have the right to defend yourself against an over aggresive cop. All you people been looking the other way, while Millsap's Hoodlums lie, cheat and steel. Let's play Open Range, Millsap and his gang can be the bad guys and we'll be the Free Grazers and we'll run them all out of town. And we need what judge keeps writing these No Knock Warrants so we came we can run him out of town with them.

cartersville is a good old boy town and has a way of coveringup serious situation hot head cops.i really think this incident with the fatal MURDER should be investigated to it's fullest and not just thrown under the rug as so many are. "No knock policy"was only on mentioned aftet the fact.this story has various twist just like the elderly woman in atlanta.GOD BLESS THIS FAMILY
