Butts County Sheriff's Dept only does their job when they see fit! My Husband and I called them for assistance with a neighboors loud party and almost running over their teenage children laying in the road at 1:00am. We called twice and nobody ever came! Some sheriff's office, I tell ya!

I was arrested by Butts county a few weeks ago and after I was had my head slammed in the door then I was dropped on the ground while in handcuffs as a female to be treated this way for the crime of OBSTRUCTION which in this county is a trump charge. I complained to Sheriff POPE to look in to how I was treated his reply was he viewed the tape and found the charge to be legit. I again sent an email asking him to look in to the abuse and that i had no problem with the charge again he felt that an officer should be allowed to slam a womans head in to a car door while in hand cuffs and then push her down on to the pavement. FEMALES BEWARE THEY HAVE HAVE THE APPROVAL OF THEIR HIGH COMMANDER TO ABUSE ANYONE. If times were not so hard in this economy, I would have hired an attorney and went forward with charges against this county it has taken me three weeks to get over this attack and three doctor appointments.

As a Law enforcement officer in extreme N. Ga. i can only say that i wish we had a Sheriff with as much Desire to do his job as sheriff Pope. It's interesting to hear that the ones that have been "Arrested" are the ones complaining. Who Cares, i salute you Sheriff Pope For having the guts to enforce the law and not just being a politician.

I believe you Bronc. Also, if I remember correctly, wasnt there an article in the Griffin Daily News about a female inmate that was taken to the hospital -- a nurse walked into her room and saw Dee stewart doing something to her IV???
Yes, it was a peice of stolen heavy equipment (backhoe, bobcat,??) that Stewart had taken from the jail to his home for his own personal use.
Wasnt there also a trailer from a semi found full of drugs that just disappeared from the county impound lot at the jail??
As for the bullying -- Duncan would have been just as bad as a sheriff -- I remember when I was a young teenager, I used to see (watch) Keith Duncan intimidate some others into fighting -- he would always tell them that if they didnt jump on some kid that he was going to beat their a***s, so the boys would because they were afraid of Duncan.
And I understand it to be that Dee Stewart not so much coeherced, but more or less actually forced the girl to give up her baby so that he could adopt it.
All I can say is that Dee has been around for a long time and he has always been fair even in the 70,s when all of Us Van driving dope doin' long haired hippy types were cruising town.Yep I know what I am talking about. If you don't like Dee it is probably because he doesn't back up from anyone. He is Old School police and we need that right now with the gangs and idiots around town.
Also I can't even imagine anyone ever being afraid of Duncan, I have girlfriends that wouldn't be afraid of him. He looks like Opie and is always just hanging around doing nothing. I have never seen him be anything but nice. But I do feel sorry for anyone that felt intimidated by Duncan, Thanks for the laugh...Please make sure you lock your doors at night and stay home because you need the police to protect you..

I moved to Butts county in October of last year. My wife (then fiancee)'s ex husband deemed it neccesary to break into our house and take the kids gaming system, Christmas presents and a box of jewelry that we had stashed. Wedding band and scrap gold. We called out to the sheriffs dept for help. All that was done when they did come was take info down on paper. No investigation into it at all. We then received calls in the middle of the night with threats of death and violence. Again they were called out and just wrote the incedent down. Now months later, he was arrested in Jackson for aggrevated assault, terroristic threats and child cruelty only because the officers heard him threatning to kill someone while they were at the door and busted it down and caught him wielding two knives in his hands. This is a man who had his 18 and 5 year old daughters in the apartment with him while acting like this to the 18 yr olds boyfriend. So much for the Sheriffs Dept., it took the city police to do something about this guy. I guess it was fate that he was heard doing this inside the city limits this time!!!

Georgia law requires that to charge someone with Terr. threats the threat must be more than he said she said "No person shall be convicted under this subsection on the uncorroborated testimony of the party to whom the threat is communicated." Thus by them hearing it they could make an arrest, whereas your case was a phone call in the night and only you heard it. You could always go to the Magistrate judge YOURSELF and take a warrant for harrassing phone calls. We deal with this back and forth squabble all the time MOST of the time it just that squabble,people these days can't run their lives without calling law enforcement everytime someone calls them a bad name, but every once in a while as it appears in your case it is legitimate.

I was arrested on my own land after the fact I found out my brother has stolen my Fathers accounts. I called the police and told them 2 make him leave. When the officer got here he woulndt here or see my POA I have on my dad and the land I own. Its was so cold 15 dregess the office made me stand outside and I opened the door and ask If I could go in my sisters house next door. And he aressted me for no f)(*&&^ good reason I can tell you this is not over the people inside the jail are just as nasty and ugly to me I did nothing wrong. Expect protect my land and My 85 yrs old parents. I will never call 911 ever again I wish Mr pope would call me I am still looking around 4 someone to help me file charges against the officer. I also needed med help and got no help I have copd and I almost stop breathing thank you mr pope 4 doing such a great job in letting your officers abuse people

I heard about that Henry County bust, years ago. Do you remember what happend?

<quoted text>Cheryl, If I were you I would not stand for this kind of abuse. There are plenty of lawyers out there that would do this case for you for a percentage of the damages you won if they think they can win the case. The only thing standing in the way of the Sheriff, his Deputy and a Criminal is their badge! You would be appauled at how many Georgia Sheriffs have been arrested and went to jail for crimes. Henry County lost their Sheriff (Jimmy Glass), Police Chief (Childes?) and Probate Judge (Larry Tew) along with a lot of other prominent Henry County Citizens and a lot more that just weren't identified around 1980 for trafficing drugs! The reason everyone votes for the Butts County Sheriff is probably because he can sweep things under the rug and make cases disappear if you pad his pockets. They should never let people hold public office for more than 4 years and be re-elected to keep the corruption to a minimum.

tell ya what, hotshot. I have never been in the slightest trouble in butts, and have lived here nearly a decade. For the last 22 years, i made it my mission to expose and see punished those corrupt officers who make all the good departments look bad. Targets of my investigations across the country have been demoted, suspended, terminated, prosecuted, or even taken their own lives. Having said that, i can tell you and everyone else that gene pope is a corrupt cop. Once my investigation on him is complete, and the irrefutable evidence is revealed for the world to see, i expect you to apologize to those you have slighted and trivialized here. By the way, i almost had him once, but his deputies took the fall for him. Not this time.

Also, as far as dee stewart goes, he is a personal friend of mine. He is also tremendously corrupt. Once i am finished with pope, dee is next, friend or not. I warned him years ago not to ever cross that line and of hear about it. He forgot that warning or chose to ignore it. Now, he too must pay for his wrong choices. I give no quarter, not even for friends. Especially not for those who are friends. I hold my friends to a higher standard, because they know my beliefs. If you are an officer of the law, lead by example and follow the laws you enforce. Use discretion as needed, but never circumvent the law for yourself or others. Never use your authority for either bullying or personal gain. Do your job properly and you will never have to look over your shoulder to see if someone like me is standing there, ready to remove your corruption from an underappreciated, underpaid and oft maligned profession.

Sheriff Gene Pope should be in jail to live out his miserable life and most of his deputies as well. Butts County needs a real sheriff and deputies who will serve the county with honor and respect. Law Enforcement isn't for ones own gain but to serve and protect the citizens of Butts County. If those of you who know of his corruption would grow a pair then the State Police and Department of Justice could go in and clean house. But it takes a citizen of courage to stand up and speak out. OUT WITH GENE POPE, Let's make his name Gene Pope, Ex-sheriff.
