I can't help but wonder if Canton Police and Cherokee County Sheriff's Office did a little more than profile young people and run license plates 24/7, then maybe their presence might have been able to deter or even prevent the killing of the 7 year old girl.

And as long as it took the cops and especially Mr. K9 cop to find the body, who in their right mind would trust him to sniff out drugs with any rate of consistency ? And if you're under 45 and don't drive a luxury car, you will get to meet said K9 for PC to tear your car apart.

I just pray for this little girl's family and pray Cherokee County and Canton Law Enforcement grow up and start protecting the people of North Georgia rather just keep trying to generate more revenue through tickets, drug possession charges, and the probation fees and court costs.

This was once a perfect place to live, we must give up our complacency and return it to what it was. It won't be cheap or easy, and it won't be fun going up against the thugs in the CPD & CSD, but if we care where we live and where our children will grow up, we must act.

A traffic ticket for 7 over, or a tint ticket, or lane change or right on red isn't protecting us- it's to generate revenue.

We need protected, that beautiful little 7 year old girl needed that- not some CPD out giving out tint tickets and crossing the yellow.

If you're with me, let me know !

I have always been a citizen who respects the law and law enforcement officers being that my entire family pretty much are cops. Canton Police Department is out of control. They wrongfully detained and questioned my 10 yo son without myself or ex-wife being present. They made him sign a criminal trespass order as well. I was given a number to call to find out information about the incident but could get no answer. When I tried to find out what was happening I was lied to by officers. They wrote me for disorderly conduct because I would not come down to the jail to talk to them.(At this point I couldn't trust them). I have done nothing wrong; however, I was arrested on a stalking warrant recently. A warrant a police officer took out on me, oh by the way he lied again . The city of canton sent 2 officers to meet my 15 yo son as he got off the school bus both wearing tactical gloves and equipment with their hands on their guns asking him about where I was, where I worked and when I would be home.

I was arrested and booked for the first time of my life for stalking..... I dont even know the complaintants nor would I be able to identify them in a line up because Ive never seen them before.. Its hard to believe I spent 10 years of my life serving a country that I no longer recognize.
I guess we are all guilty until proven innocent.

I agree that the Canton Police need to clean up their act. I am a good looking 24 yr old female and drive a newer 2007 car. I have been pulled over several times in Canton and they take one look at me, run my license, and then proceed to tell me i'm free to be on my way..My boyfriend on the other hand is a completely different story. He drives a '92 Honda sports car that's in rough shape and they are always pulling him over without cause and almost always search his car while barking what I would call "Fighting Words". It makes me so angry that these police officers are so closed minded. He works damn hard at his job, about 50 hrs a week, and doesn't deserve that kind of bullshit in his freetime. Just because some people don't have the money for shiney new cars doesn't mean that they arent productive members of society. He would gladly give the shirt off his back for ANYBODY. So why doesn't the Canton PD pull their heads out of their ass's and go fight some real crime. Because pulling over every beat up looking car and automatically assuming they are on or carrying dope is ignorant and a waste of time and our tax dollars.
