Oconee sheriff boycotts gun dealer over gun ban to public

@FairFacts: The only problem with that is the company has the right to sell to who ever they want to sell too!! Just because I have a certain item does not mean I have to sell it to who ever wants to buy it. While it is the right of citizens to buy these types of weapons, it is not MANDATORY for vendors to sell them to anyone, its certainly not a criminal matter, its a CIVIL matter between the vendor and the first citizen who is rejected from purchase. Dana safety is not even in Oconee county and I think its asinine and only another publicity stunt for bubba sheriff to gain favor. He's a dark, nasty, vile, pungent, vulgar person who has A LOT of people believing he walks on water! Many people are waking up to his shenanigans and smoky mirrors. He is just a mediocre LE officer, in a mediocre agency surrounded with some excellent employees and some not so excellent- OCSO "serves and protects" in a very low crime area by demographic design- NOT because OCSO is a master crime fighter organization!! People have a hard time figuring that out. Anyone can ignore his babble and check out the stats and figure this out. Its all about image and perception for him because that's ALL he has!

Ga. governors hesitant to remove accused sheriffs

@SIGNOFF:

Did we all miss something? Are there felony indictments pending for Berry? If they removed Sheriff's or other law enforcement for incompetence I would venture to say half of our law enforcement community would be gone.

Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely! Hopefully Deal will look at this matter for what it is: A corrupt sheriff, the skin tone discussion brought up by his defense attorney is nothing but a red heron attempt to direct attention to irrelevant matters!

There is nothing more disgusting then a person under scrutiny for doing wrong trying to play the race card.

Hill is a royal screw-up, crook, racist person himself! Its AMAZING how someone like that continues to remain in positions of authority. Aside from 32 felony indictments pending, look at the rest of his record! He has NOTHING positive! Additionally, he has the respect of NONE of his staff-- that alone tells you something also!

Nothing like a beautiful story detailing poetic justice to get Monday started in the right direction! I just love trees and fleeing felons who cannot maintain control of their stolen vehicle!

Athens escapee charged with stealing the handcuffs he wore

At least they're responsible parent thieves.

Sadly, feeding kids was probably not the objective for stealing the formula because its common in the drug culture to use baby formula as a cut-in agent for drugs like meth and crack. It results in a higher weight therefore more street value.

Oconee, Athens police seize property in Oglethorpe County

matt- that rant about warrants and serving them statewide made absolutely no sense! I see nothing anywhere where ANYONE stated they should not have served warrants or arrested anyone!

The topic is the over-exposure of sheriff Berry in the media and the STRONG probability it is not because the ABH is so interested, OR that OCSO is so wonderfully combating crime. Don't get me started on STATISTICS! I will show you just how mediocre your agency is.....

I'm afraid he probably does have a gun and badge because he is extra quick to defend the OCSO and Berry anytime anyone comments on them in a negative light. IF he is not a cop, he HAS to be relative or drinking buddy of the good sheriff...I would wager a paycheck on it!

Average citizens who are not intimately associated with a sheriff don't name-call and defend the sheriff so vehemently! Just an observation.

Exactly, It's called a God complex, he is not a team player with other agencies and is a man who cannot admit his mistakes.

Don't even get me started on his ethics.....

@AthenianDawg: Yeah, and Sheriff Berry needs to realize that people in Madison County can buy billboards in Oconee County, and discuss what we want to...We may have to make damn sure we spell "Sheriff" and "extradition" correctly, but I believe we could, with proper spell checking, do a damned politically effective billboarding of Hooter/Meritaville...

[quote][b]Anonymous Dude[/b] - But Berry and Weems, being the awful LEO PR artists they are, obviously do not respect jurisdiction or their brother Sheriffs very much.

Sheriff Berry's LEO arrogance is illustrated further in his interference in the Madison County Sheriff elections, and in his special extradition of his brother.[/quote]

Amen, amen ....and amen!!

@webbty80:

Could not have asked the question better my self! I'm in no way knocking efforts of the deputies who work hard. I'm just not a big fan of inflated news on categories that occur everyday all over. For the top law officers of an agency to parade across any paper who will allow them every time a felony arrest is made shows me that not much is going on in the grand scheme of things for that agency!

We are talking about arrests and a raid that happened only yesterday, for this to be in the news already shows that most likely somebody (cough, cough) Berry or Weems has a reporters number on speed dial so they can call each time a felony arrest is made.

I'm with you, who is friends with who and I would be willing to bet that ABH did not request this story but rather some over-zealous OCSO employee likely called them while the perps were still in handcuffs.....merely an opinion based on news history of OCSO and what I know about journalism.

These types of stories are COUNTLESS across the state and nation and even within other local agencies, it seems the ABH features more articles on OCSO then ACCPD, CCSO, and all other local agencies combined! I'm guessing **if** the reporter for this story even contacted the other agencies involved they probably kept their mouths shut because the case is still open?

Wonder whats next for the OCSO initiated media circus?

I read articles like this: http://onlineathens.com/local-news/2012-09-13/gwinnett-co-police-make-hu...

and chuckle at articles like this one! It seems OCSO grabs their little 15 minutes of fame when ever they can!

You don't see the sheriff of GCSO or chief of GCPD posing with recovered lawn mowers or putting his face in the newspaper every chance he gets!. If REAL agencies such as those chased the press every time they made a felony arrest like OCSO does then the media would grow sick of them!

Don't get me wrong, this is good work I'm sure, but really, is this a feature story?

Like someone earlier pointed out, the sheriff once allowed an independent film company to make a smutty film some labeled as soft porn in the jail (just a few years back). With that said, what's the big deal here? Maybe these who were fired for "sex" talk are not much better than those who hired them, morally speaking that is.

@boiledpeanutsbrother: How dare you talk about the fraternity of nothingness like that! Nobody can tell you what good Berry being the "President" of the Georgia Sheriff's Association does for this community. They LOVE throwing that title out there though like its royalty or something. Just a title that WE as tax payers pay DEARLY for is all that title is. Again, NOBODY can tell you what good (other then the holy title) him being the president of that silly money racket organization does. It seems to be just a social organization that likes to meet and talk about how great each others departments are too me from what I can tell.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
