I dont know why law enforcement took so long time since they already knew about this since many years that this kind of illegal activities are going on,not only in Vidalia But whole Georgia.This is recurrent process ,you pay some fine and people get released so nothing new for these business owners.My question is Since goverment knows about this why would they not take permanant step to stop this Bull???

Someone brought in some high-tech Atlanta lawyers to explain to a jury why the machines should be given back. Took about 20 minutes to say no. Haven't heard of anyone being jailed over the gambling yet.
