After the slander that Mickey dumped on Mike Miller, I can only revel in the ironic turn of events that this tyrant now must endure.

My question is will McDade heap upon him the same measure of justice he dishes to normal citizens, or will the former Mayor get the "good ole boy" treatment.

Time will tell.

My experience tells me McDade has always picked and chosen what law breaker he wants to prosecute. My bet is Thompson's attorney will make a deal to pay a fine (settlement) with no prosecution.

If that happens, will it be public knowledge, or are such things kept confidential by the court?

Embarrassing things from our city:

1.) Harvey Persons lies about letting people vote on alcohol. This is national news covered on Boortz.

2.) Douglasville Gestapo, led by fake Judge Keith Rollins, puts a woman in jail for being muslim. National news.

3.) Persons demands a new car and then wrecks it with only 36 miles. Covers up the cause of the wreck. Regional news.

Now, we learn that the former was stealing from the citizens. National news.

If you were a business, would you want to operate in Douglas County?

If mickey was black, he would have been indicted for 92 felonies, plus RICO, denied bond, and would have been offered 30 years in prison as the only plea deal.

Douglasville is a bunch of racist rednecks. If the GBI hadn't investigated this, nobody would even know.

this kinda stuff goes on all the time in doulgasville. there just isn't no one to investigate it all. sherriff police chief, DA, and judges all protect each other.

Has anyone heard anything about the investigation being done on the wreck? What was the outcome? I know it will probably never be released but I was just curious?

It's very sad to see so many people losing their jobs and our mayor has to go out and have a brand new LOADED Tahoe..... I wouldve put his a$$ in a base model but on that note he could've drove the one we already had.

WRONG!!!! If Mickey was black he would've got Jesse Jackson and the whole NAACP involved and it would've been National news......because its usually the blacks that say everyone is racist. I'm white and if it were me I would've been locked up for the maximum, it's all in who you know NOT what color you are!

For the record the D.A. and the Sheriff asked the GBI to investigate and the only racist here is YOU.

Forrest, if you really believe that, I've got some swampland for sale in south florida that we need to talk about.
By claiming the GBI handled this, they can distance themselves from Mickey's sweatheart deal. McDade and the Sheriff work things behind the scenes so they can claim they didn't have anything to do with the situation.

Indeed you are. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And posing as someone else is also the ultimate in cowardice. Thanks for proving me right, yet again, about all you republiKKKans. Willard/Ryan....McCain/Palin part deux.
