I believe it, seen it so many times it's become standard and inevitable for anyone who doesn't kiss the right ass. In all fairness though that is the way it is in every kind of job.

The cost of detaining a person at BCSO for one year is $30,000.00. Bartow county jail has nearly 700 inmates. And that is not counting the inmates boarded out. Plus BCSO does not board that many people for other agencies. Tax payers?

So, what law was he breaking? Were there "no trespassing" signs up? I'm confused as usual.
No there is usually no signs saying no armed robberies or trespassing it just happens by stupid people... They deserved what they got.... That just means one less peace of trash in BARTOW COUNTY.... and if you don't like it move!!!!!!!!!!

That guy tried to stop my teenaged daughter on Brown Farm Rd for a ride, he was half naked and drunk, he had been at the gas station harassing the customers right before he went into the subdivision. We didn't see the incident but did hear the shots fired and all the ambulance, and police cars flying into the neighborhood. Regardless if the gun was loaded or not, if you point a gun at LE you deserve to get shot. As for him urinating in peoples yards, there were a bunch of small children playing in their yards when he did this. Would you like some strange, half naked man pissing in front of your small children? Once again the police are being dragged through the mud for protecting the residents and children of the quiet neighborhood. What would you be saying had the cop gotten shot and died in front of those kids? Who knows what was going through that mans head? It's done and over, why keep talking about it?

Or you go to a party where you paid to get in, the person having the party asks you to leave and you ask for your money back and instead you get sucker punched knocked down a flight of stairs when you finally get your senses back there are at least 15 people kickin the crap out of you, you take out your legally obtained 40 caliber weapon you point it directly at a wooden step with the nose of said weapon touching the step and fires said weapon and then the police claim that the bullet richocets, in my eyes it doesn' seem feasible! You are sentenced to 15 do 4! For shame that these others weren't charged with aggravated assault! NO NOTHING was done to them!

I think a "party where you pay to get in" makes it an "unlicensed bar" and thus, somewhere you aren't supposed to have a gun because alcohol is being sold for consumption on the premises. Was that ever mentioned in your case? And, if you admitted that you had a concealed weapon but no license- I can see how they'd charge you. What were you charged with?

Well actually it WASN'T a bar it was a private residence!!! The person who had the gun did have a permit for it!!! The person was charged with aggravated assault! Wonders how certain people can get away with stompin the crap out of someone and do it while the C.P.D. is rolling up to the scene but yet they are not charged!!I guess it's not who you know in this town but who you BLOW!!!!!

If they charged to come in then it was a bar, no matter how you see it. And they were selling alcohol without a license. Having to pay to get in was just to pay for the alcohol.

While I have no law book in front of me at the moment, I do believe that the 16-11-125+ prohibition against having guns where alcohol is served for consumption on the premises (Bar) has been wiped away

With the snow, I have been pretty much homebound and suffered with a bad case of cabin fever. To help with this, I have been able to back and forth with a few of you on this and some other forums. I will admit that it gives me a fresher perspective on some things that I took for granted.
1. There are a lot of real thinking people on this forum. 2. There are a lot of very narrow or close-minded people in this forum. 3. And most important, nothing I say is going to change anybody's mind.

It has been a pleasure. Back to work now

Since when can private residence become a "bar'? Doesn't that mean that they would be required to have a pouring license? Shouldn't the home owner have been charged then for serving alcohol? The party in question was charged the money with no knowledge of what was going on he was just informed that there was a party going on! The party paid to get into this place not realizing that "it was a BAR". And furthermore, didn't realize it was a "PRIVATE BAR" one "WITHOUT" a pouring license! If,the parties involved would have not been kicking the crap out of the party that paid to get in then maybe he would not have been forced to fire his "licensed weapon" and fired it into a wooden step with the nose of the weapon directly on the step with no way for the bullet to richocet!

1fedup1 it became a bar when they served alcohol and charged admission at the door.

That is the simplest way to explain it.

But then if the party that fired the gun into the step didnt know that and the "homeowner" wasn't charged with selling the alcohol why would someone that was just trying to get everyone off of him charged! That just doesnt make good sense! But as I said before it seems to me that "it's not who you know it's who you blow"

Wait, didn't he leave and return with a gun? Isn't that the way it happened? Maybe I'm wrong but I thought I had read that.

Your wrong! He did however show the moneytaker (doorman) that he was carrying! So now what? Some people do have brains not to return where they are not welcomed, He wasn't given that choice the homeowner sucker punched him knocked him down a flight of stairs and then the rest of the guests decided that they were entitled to join in the beating and kicking. Hell, I would have fired the gun into the step as well!!

I don't know the facts just reading along here, but you are trying to get us to beleive that this person went to a party and on the way into the party he showed the person taking money he was carrying a gun.....a party at a house is a party, and i don't think anyone would let someone carrying a gun in, and why would this person feel the need to show a gun, and why would this person be carrying a gun into someones house if he didnt have bad intentions in mind, and this person was punched and beat up by a bunch of people for no reason....and then he pulls the gun and points it straight at the steps and fires..he never not even once pointed it at anybody,even after shooting the step....i may be wrong but this sounds fishy...please fill me in on the answers to those questions.

So sad....you are so nieve if you think most of the people in bartow county jail are innocent because it is just a holding facility....and as far as the wife of the guy killed being pulled out of her cell and told her husband was dead...who told you they told her and then stuck her in a cell by herself for 3 days....anyway,what do you think should have happened...she is a criminal too,and from what you said she was in for probation violations, so that means it wasn't her first crime...

This person carried a gun at all times because of the company he worked for he carried large sums of money! This car dealership entrusted him to bring the money and he was not going to be robbed! The person that took the money that night was (NOT) even a part of the party inside he was just someone collecting money for himself he was actually a bouncer for the bar on the lower level. He asked for his money back after being asked to leave! He was then sucker punched. HE DID NOT point the gun at anyone! He just wanted the peopler that were kicking and punching him to Back off! These people continued to kick the crap out of him and were even doing it when Cartersville's (finest hahahah) showed up but yet he was the only one arrested! Does this answer your questions? This persons attorney told the assistant D.A. that he might have well shot one of the people for the time they were giving him! And now he sits in prison, never able to vote again, never able to be around anyone that owns a gun. What a shame that everyone else is walking around free after they assaulted this person, one of the people at the (party) said he shouldn't do any time because he was just tryin to get the others to back off!

Sounds like your friend had no business carrying a weapon in the first place. I completely understand carrying because of his job, but if he carried large sums of money into a party with a bunch of drunks he was just asking for trouble. I carry a weapon at ALL times, but when I go to friends houses where there is drinking, it stays in the truck. Did this friend of yours have a drink at the party? Even one? If so, that is illegal in and of itself. So your saying there was a bar on the "lower level" of this house party? That doesn't make any sense. How can there be a bouncer and a bar and yet it's still called a "house party"?
