Chief King of Doraville

Lithonia, GA

From Doraville Topix:

Ok, Doraville, how is this for "open government?"

At last council meeting, Donna and gang(except Trudy) were pissed off that so many citizens had criticized them for a number of ill-conceived actions. And they had voiced, rather strongly and adamantly, at the previous meeting how they felt. So Donna opens the next meeting with a rambling statement laying out ground rules that, in essence, said, "if you criticize us too strongly or too loudly, you will be removed from the meeting.(And probably banned from attending future meetings.)

Didn't know Idi Amin had a sister...

So to prove just how powerful they are, and taking their power to censor to new heights, at last night's meeting there was an incident.

A citizen, one of only two audience members in attendance, got a phone call during the meeting. He got up to leave and as he was walking out, answered his phone.

Brian Bates simply says "Chief" and Chief King followed the man out and refused to let him back in after he finished his call. An argument ensued and TWO officers felled the man, with what we believe, with a taser.

He was hauled off to Grady and then Northside Hospital and we haven't gotten word yet on his condition.

Is this what we have to look forward to when we attend meetings? This is bordering on censorship folks. Say anything the council doesn't like and they get their feelings hurt so they respond by trying to shut people up or intimidate them or keep them away so they can do their incompetent business.

And shame on Chief King for stooping so low to act as their bully goon.

I'm telling you folks now...get these people off the dais out of power and bring some real leadership to this city before it is too late.

Fed up with BS
