NO ONE SHOULD BE ABOVE THE LAW. JUDGE TURNER SHOULD BE JUDGE LIKE ANY OTHER CITIZEN. IF HE THOUGHT HIS LIFE WAS THREATEN, HE SHOULD HAD CALL THE POLICE, OR WROTE TAG NUMBER DOWN. BUT, YOU KNOW IT JUST MAY BE ANOTHER CASE LIKE SHERIFF JOHNSON'S SON OR DAVID GLISSEN. IS THERE ANY JUSTICE FOR CITIZENS, WHEN IT COME TO OFFICIALS.

Judge Turner is an idiot, he should not be a judge because he has no sense at all.

I hate judge turner & his assistance who is a witch. He tried to ruin one of my family members, there bank had made a mistake & caused one of there checks to bounce. This was sent to checkcare systems, & the filed charges the check was for only $2. He terrorized my family member on the stand, also they paid the fees to checkcare system. The crooked judge was going ahead with the criminal charges, & was going to make them do community service. My family member pleaded not guilty, & the higher court above him dropped the case saying this was stupid taking it this fair. The fees had been paid, also turner's assistance is a witch who lied about my family member & who is the cause of making the problem worse. They both should be fired turner & his assistance. Well the higher court agreed he crossed the line. Judge turner has done to many bad things, he probally abuses he poor wife. He should not be allowed to be back on the bench because he is crazy, he thinks he can judge people even out on the roads & highways. Judge turner should be disbarred from the bench he does not deserve his job back, cause he treats people unfairly, he gets away with abusing his power.

I can't even call turner judge he don't deserve that, he is the most corrupt judge I have ever seen, after what he done to my family member. Turner should do the respectable thing & step down. He does not deserve the respect of being called a judge, he has done to many bad things. Not to long ago he had a fight with his wife & it ended up on the news. He is probally a abuser & beats his wife, no doubt after how unfairly he treats people in court. Turner is a wicked man & in 2002 he threaten the people who pay him, because he wasn't getting his way saying he wanted to nuke them. They should have fired him but they slip it under the rug. He is punishing people while he does worse then the people he fines, & put in jail. He thinks cause he is a judge he can do & treat anyone he feels like, but he is not above the law. Turner brought this on him himself, he reep what he has sowed. He is a popular judge to he is always on t.v. in some kind of legal trouble, he gets back what he dishes out. He should not be allowed to ever be a judge, he treats people unfairly in court. Know he thinks he can judge people on the roads, & pull guns on other drivers. Turner got back what he dished out, know his lawyer tires to protect him. I will always hate what turner did to my family memeber. Also my family member got a lawyer who was friends with turner, which he should not had taken this was conflict of interest. If a lawyer knows somebody like he was friends with turner he should not have agreed, to help my family member, because this scum of a lawyer didn't do jack. I believe turner & this lawyer had it set up this way.

Corruption Turman Realty inc. and Judge Turner

Why does one of the most corrupted slum realty companies in Columbus Ga. pay a large amount of money to keep Turner on the bench? It is simple, Turner support Turman Realty inc. most of time in his court. Turman pay for (TURNER) signs all over the city. Turman Realty does not care about his tenants in South Columbus.
