Three Counties in this NCIS Squad someone needs to come in from the Feds and pull the files and they would that bad cops that are caught don't get fired they are given the chance to leave to go to another town and not worry aabout the past.It has been this way for years in Toccoa. You play ball or you Die,unless you know things on the Good Old Boys.You can get a badge in Stephens County right out of High School and without a Mental test to see if you would have the mind set to be a Power Freck that loves to have powers over other humans. Just wait there will be more killings,if you look back in past years and how how Judfes get aways and in newspapers they even brag abouy loop hole to get around the Law.May God Have mercy on their eveil soul.

DO you really think it is just Stephens County? There is corruption in every town to some degree. The difference here is that the issue was covered so much by the media. Sure Toccoa has some issues to be resolved. But you CANNOT say it is just Stephens County.

This is a nonsecular view just so were clear, I am not taking sides... I just think you people *Law enforcement Included* need some Jesus and if that isn't your religion then atleast consider some of the principals.:)

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it"

>>Food for thought.. Listen we have to maintain humility and take into the accounts of others, with prayer and love, The Bible says:

>>Luke 6:27-36

[27] "But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,[28] bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.[29] If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.[30] Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.[31] Do to others as you would have them do to you.

[32] "If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them.[33] And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that.[34] And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full.[35] But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.[36] Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. " ;

If you want to make a difference you need do it with patients, diplomacy,humility,love,and ultimately the living words. Remember that we lead by example not by haste and not by anger,nor pride.. Because if we don't then we are no better than the enemy, or the ones who have a stronghold in darkness.

>>>at the risk of sounding eisegetical with the context of this I will stop here.

..-More Food For Thought-..

If liberty and equality, as is thought by some, are chiefly to be found in democracy, they will be best attained when all persons alike share in government to the utmost.-Aristotle-

The community and other communities need to stay actively involved and participate in any events that will incur a needed change, but make sure we think everything through and through from every side, don't flex a muscle we cant retract. Also as a public don't underestimate your abilities, you might become the thing you despise the most.
