Now go arrest that Sorry No Good Egg Sucking Dog Victor Hill for Felony Theft of County Property, Dereliction of Duty, Violation of his Oath of Office, and for Aggravated Ugliness. Then turn him loose in the General Population of the Clayton County Jail.

Time for some Payback on this Punk!

Every Sheriff in the country does the same thing when they take office. As a matter of fact, every elected official in the country does it. It is really not a big deal, as it was not a big deal when Victor Hill did it. Will President Obama not replace all of President Bush's people?

Yes, it is a matter of practice that incoming elected officials make staff changes, etc., but Victor Hill's actions had more of an agenda to them.

Not a big deal? I seem to remember those deputies Victor Hill fired sued the county. The county ended up having to defend those lawsuits using tax dollars.

Anytime tax dollars are used to defend the actions of a public official who is drunk on power it is a big deal.
