GA officer behind bars for sex-related crime

In regard to Sheriff Dewey, please contact P.O.S.T. After all, he is a public servant.  (Sep 29, 2009 | post #14)

What changes would you like to see at L.C.S.O. ?

I have really learned a lot from reading some of the posts, especially the one that stated that the uniformed patrol is the backbone of the department. Thanks for commenting on the hard workers of any department, be it municipalities or Sheriffs Offices. Thanks for your courage and professionalism, you are to be commended.  (Sep 12, 2009 | post #147)

Search continues for Brooks Co. home invasion killers

ABC, I am a black officer that worked in Brooks County and arrested the Styles' brothers countless times. Do not feel bad, I was called all types of names for doing my job as well as set the example for the kids as well. Once I went to arrest one of them at their house, and they attacked me and tried desperately to take my firearm from the holster; however, due to my size and ability and of course by the grace of God, on this particular night, I could return home to my family peacefully. I also understand your frustration with Richard Chafin. You must learn to let it go. I busted my ass for him for almost ten years, and I proudly say he terminated me and had the audacity to put on my termination that I resigned to further my education. Why would I need to further my education when I am already educated? Thanks for having the courage to share your story with us, and I am glad that you are still alive and well. Thanks for your service and may God continue to bless you. God Speed!  (Sep 12, 2009 | post #2)

I do not call it complaining. Do you ever hear me talking about the military? You probably aren't man enough to serve. When you are right, you are right. Read the code section, this is why it is written  (Sep 7, 2009 | post #4)

Lowndes County Sheriff Job Rating

If it's not written, it never happened. The code section, 40-8-91, clearly states that the units are not marked properly. It is not a case against Paulk nor Prine. The code section read the same when Paulk was the Sheriff, as it does now. Read it. Secondly, we did not have this discussion when Paulk was the Sheriff.  (Aug 27, 2009 | post #5)

Yeager leaving???

Guys, please, we should all respect each other. Regardless to what Sheriff Prine did, he is now the Sheriff and deserves to prove himself such as you or me. We all have done some bad, but had the opportunity to overcome. In 1993, J.D. Yeager, worked a case of agg assault on me, my wife and daughter at the Mall in Valdosta. I was on active duty during the time, headed to Honduras. Yeager arrested the Bass subject, who was waiting in the mall parking lot with a loaded rifle, just waiting on me to come his way. The person you are downing on your way up, you may very well see on your way down. Ask Richard Chafin.  (Aug 25, 2009 | post #853)

Lowndes County Sheriff Job Rating

All should be re-striped IAW code section 40-8-91. Sheriff Prine should know this as long as he was a trooper. If the units are in compliance, it leaves him no other choice but to do the right thing. I applaud him and would respect him even more, if he were to step up to the plate and stop his deputies from making traffic stops until such time all their units are in compliance.  (Aug 25, 2009 | post #3)

It is not always the African Americans, who do criminal things. I like this site; however, someone has to place race in motion.  (Aug 23, 2009 | post #6)

Thank you, Richard Chafin

Let's hear it! I have never taken one dime from anyone by way of stealing. I've worked at all my life and would still be working had I not become disabled. There is nothing PK can tell about me nor anyone else. As far as you ImaBTellinitLikeitis, we know several stories about you as well. There are several in Barney with not only a story or two about PK, but you also.  (Aug 22, 2009 | post #38)

Vehicle Stop

On 17 August 2009, my wife was stopped by the Valdosta Police Department for having blue fog lights on her 2004 Durango. She had been stopped previously by an officer, whom I filed a complaint against for being rude and not writing her a written warning. I contacted Captain McGraw by way of filing a complaint. Great person. Bobbi and I attended the Police Academy together. Class 126. The law on the blue lights is vague and leaves a grey area. On today, I contacted Major Brian Childress, who in my opinion was totally unprofessional and did not have the common sense to listen. Code section 40-8-91, states that any vehicle used to write traffic citations must be properly marked. I.E. 'VALDOSTA POLICE DEPARTMENT" on the sides as well as the back of the trunk. I only tried to advise him of the matter; however, ignorance stood in the way of a proper decision, now due to the ignorance, I will contact a lawyer and ask that all that have been written a traffic citation be refunded their money due to the illegal traffic stop. Secondly, in the state of Georgia, an officer must be in uniform and driving a marked unit before a traffic citation case can be made. I will fight this matter in court and will ask that Senators Goggins and Golden move to repeal the blue light law. I am not above the law; however, the law should not be above the law either. Childress, I had a lot of respect for you up until this morning when I found out how ignorant you are, knowing that the "Valdosta " on the sides of the doors on those white units you are operating is less that four inches in length. Valdosta P.D. will not see one penny on the fine since you have made it a conflict, which will be appealed to the State/Superior Court, which ever Lowndes County has. Also, I think you may be violating the "SLICK TOP CAR LAW. While you are at it, how about making sure that you only have one slick top unit running around with a radar unit in it. Lastly, why was my wife held on the stop for almost an hour or more? Either ticket the violators or take them to jail! It took three officers, one the Shift Sergeant, who, in my opinion, allowed his immaturity to get in the way of a smart and just decision. As a Lieutenant, I never involved myself in any of my officer decression, unless of course, I knew they were wrong. The officer that made the stop advised my wife that he was only going to give my wife a warning, but as soon as the Sergeant arrived on scene, it quickly went to a citation. Oh yeah, to cite my wife for the wheel chair ramp that was just recently placed on my vehicle due to an injury I received on March 22, 2006, in my opinion, was shitty also. I am willing to bet neither nor you, Childress included to have served this great Country of ours, but I did, by giving the U.S. Army almost 21 years of my life and these are the thanks I get for protecting each of your sorry asses as you slept in a nice warm bed and enjoyed the freedom that so many of us has taken upon ourselves to ensure that this freedom is not forsaken. Not above the law, but I have worked in corrections in the State of Florida, worked in law enforcement, rising to the rank of Lieutenant (10 years) and currently serving as a city councilman (10 years). By the way, I didn't tell you that I was diagnosed with renal cancer in June and due to have surgery at Emory in Atlanta in September to have my left kidney removed. Thanks guys for putting the generation of funding above saving lives. To each of you reading this, you be the judge. Oh yeah, please challenge GA Law 40-8-91 on the improperly marked units. Chief Simons, if you allow your officers to continue making cases, I simply say to you: "TO IGNORE AN INJUSTICE IS TO CONDONE IT." Get the units squared away.  (Aug 20, 2009 | post #1)
