@Used2baFreeCountry: I go recall the incident. What was the final outcome? Did the wife sue? Did the officers get prosecuted?posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 11:45
Well, they did try to steal steaks instead of hamburgers.
exactly! MIght as well get probation for stealing steaks as hamburger - and besides you might get away undetectedposted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 11:32
Good one!! Jeff Cooper would be proud of you. Didn't figure there were that many liberal wusses in Atlanta - must be some out-of-towners

This may be the correct move, but would we have the same action of this had been the removal of the Quaran (or is it the Koran this week)?posted @ Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 09:38
My dad would have beaten the crap out of me and rightly so. Dad would have ended up in jail had he done what needed to be done. This kid has likely passed the point of saving and ever becoming anything but a member of the great low information throngposted @ Monday, May 13, 2013 - 19:46

"Athens is currently in a level 1 drought, says Hall. This means soil moisture has not recovered from previous drought conditions."
After months of "average" or "above average" rainfall plus repeated "flood warnings" ? ? ? What does it take to get out of a drought, a tropical storm? Oh, yeah, those occasional heavy rains from tropical storms are included in the "average", even though they are exceptionally heavy rainfalls that come at random intervals and are not the "norm" at all.
I wondered the same thing. Obviously a government employee who reports what he is told, or has no window in his office.posted @ Friday, May 10, 2013 - 11:48
Can't blame that on Mauldin (he already has plenty to be blamed for) nor judges. The grand jury is composed of citizens. Wish Joe had been in the room to hear the rationale of a 'no bill - lack of evidence'.posted @ Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 17:06
@mpd0.59: Hmmmm, yep, but many would say that is an underground tunnel. Maybe and underrock tunnel? We splitting hairs or what?posted @ Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 14:58

I sort of understand this idiot's position - jobs are hard find these days. However, it is not a good idea to try to jerk Lawton Stevens around. He has a much heavier chain to drag you back and quite a few deputies to do it with. A simple request to speak with him and let him know how important the job interview was might have resulted in an interview, a check from the county AND a job. Looks like none of the above from here.posted @ Monday, May 6, 2013 - 07:23

You are right of course Lady, but at least she has apologized. Whether that was a genuine apology or a 'save my wholesome image' apology remains to be seen.posted @ Thursday, May 2, 2013 - 09:35
I don't know whether I had rather have all the thugs in one bunch like Bethel Homes or spread out through the county. Seems like it would be a good idea to bulldoze it sometimes. Maybe the concentration of thugs breeds more crime.posted @ Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 16:06
Did a superior court judge set the bond amount or was it a local magistrate?posted @ Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 16:02
I don't mind paying taxes for necessary things, but since when do we need an empty parking lot, a half-empty parking deck. Or why must we have someone to tell us whether or not we can cut a tree on our own property or that can tell us we must plant a new tree for the diseased tree we had to take down?
Look around K Jones and you can see it. I expect you work for the county government. Everywhere you look now there is a new pickup truck with a county supervisor driving it (or is it that this many people are sharing the same truck?)
Nothng wrong with having good equipment, but it is a fact that the PD has a penchant for adding layers and layers of upper management to the staff who want the latest bells and whistles.
The FD loves to build huge buildings with clock towers. Do they really need that ? Everyone in the courthouse has an assistant yet when you go there to get something done, no one can help because they are on break
Taxpaters are hurting financially and real proptery values are falling (not what the tax appraisers say they are worth, but what they would actually bring in an honest sale) yet taxes go up when the appraisers do evaluations.
I rant too much but those who understand know and the rest don't seem to care.
There is something wrong when those who pay no taxes are able to vote to spend thousands of dollars of tax money on special projects. I'm not sure what the answer to this conundrum is, but when someone is able to vote to spend money then they sure as heck need to be at least contribute to the cost rather than just reap benefits.
Case in point. SPLOST Those of us who work, buy things and pay sales tax make the system work. Go to the grocery store and watch how much is bought using government supplied 'cards'. These users pay no tax and yet can and do vote on projects that cost the people who really do pay sales tax.
He may not have been the most competent, but Jimmy Carter was probably the closest to being 'good and honest' as you'll find.
