You say they should clean house and start from the ground up as ling as it's dekalb and apd. But suggest that here and all of a sudden it's no way.
A few cops at dekalb and apd mess up so you say get rid of all of them. Your words. So why not do that here, too?
If it were only a few in dekalb or A.P.D. I would not suggest it, however there are so many more than the ones that make the media. There are lawsuits everyday, write ups, cover ups, etc that the general public doesn't ever hear about. Put it this way, I would not feel comfortable working with either of those agencies. I am not alone in feeling that way either. I know alot of the deputies here in Bartow and Paulding ,and short of a few I have no issues with working with either agency. I understand that you can have a jadded outlook from personal experiences, media reports, etc but there are still alot of L.E.O. here that you could put your faith in and they wouldn't let you down.

A FEW in Bartow County??? WTF are you saying, a FEW?? I realize you have to minimized any wrongdoing here in Bartow County, but give me a freaking break, there are a lot more than a FEW bad ones here.

I have the same "JADED" outlook at Dekalb and Fulton that I do here in Bartow. As for personal experience, you can run my name on any NCIC, GCIC, and you will find I have never been arrested. Ever. So I do not know what personal experience you are refering to.

Keep playing down any crooked cops here in Bartow. You don't have any other choice. But I know it's a crock of sh..

No need to be defensive, when I said personal experinces I wasn't meaning you were some criminal. We all have ran across an officer at one time or another. I'm not downplaying the bad ones here just saying there are more good than bad, and when I say a few I don't mean three. Just a word I use often to describe more than one.I don't think we are going to agree on this, I was only responding to your post for me. So let's agree to disagree.

People dont tend to turn themselves in unless they are charged with something first there smart guy. Nothing honorable in what he did, but it was the right choice. Keep looking for the negative around here, God knows you have shit else to do in your life besides rip on people who put theirs on the line for you.

Don't give me that bs about how he did the honorable thing and turned himself in. He didn't turn himself in until AFTER he had a handful of arrest warrants. So keep on giving the dirtbag excuses. Typical LEI

She was not murdered for her private life. Whatever that private life may have been you as well deserved the same rights to privacy protected under the 4th amendment.

But to your point some of those officers involved in her murders has not been clean from that night forward.
Do you need some examples?
