How does this happen. It's not fair that some get burnt by the blotter and others get left out. I know of 2 people that were carted off by the Cartersville police that and arrested but never showed up in blotter.....what's the deal?

Stop breaking laws and getting arrested and it won't matter to you if it is fair or not.

Can't speak for the Cartersville paper, but at our paper we don't put in those arrested for one misdemeanor. Two or more yes. Also not for probation violation, if that's the only charge. Not enough space.

In Cartersville, GA, if you know someone, you can get your name somehow misplaced at blotter time. Happens frequently

IF they are arrested and not in blotter they are working for the Drug Task Force as undercover agents. Wearing a wire and getting others busted so they can get out of trouble.

Did you try checking a date after? Sometimes the publishing deadlines push the information to appear in the following days.

However, I believe what you are saying. I know of two incidents which were not in the blotter of the Patch. I would hate to think it was favoritism. One was a DUI and another was resisting arrest.

I am positive that I saw an person arrested on west ave by Cartersville's finest. However no record in paper or sheriffs office. His family has deep roots in Cartersville so they were not placed in blotter. This is why Cartersville police are corrupt.

The blotter is sent electronically from BC jail to the paper and to other sources. People actually booked into the jail are listed, no exceptions unless BCSO deletes them before sending our to reporters
