There you go Mustard...:)
@Mustard, don't get pcjohn started, unfortunately he's not the brightest one on here. He loves to hurl stones but he has never backed up anything that he has said. For an example please see the comments that he will post in reply to this post.
pcjohn, go ahead and have fun with your name calling. I merely responded to this thread when i read the story and saw you bashing and name calling someone that i know is a good man. Perfect man, no, I don't think that I have ever met one and I'm certainly not one. So, i'm going to leave you at it. Have fun.
Alright pcjohn, let me do your leg work for you since you seem to think that it’s okay to lie about people with no facts and are too lazy to do research. http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/news/2011/jul/29/family-suing-gwinnett-pd/?news
I don’t think that you know everything; actually the contrary is true. According to all of your previous post, YOU think you know everything by your “matter of fact” statements. After just a little research, it is clear that you do not now much.
I don't and never have worked for Danny or Chief Waters. I do know current and previous employees of Danny and they all describe him as I do.
Pcjohn – the facts were easy enough for me to find in a few minutes. The problem that I have is that you blast away at the police, Chief Waters and Danny Porter like its FACTS when it clearly is not. That’s not fair to either of them. The Waffle House incident officers were allowed to resign. I do not know all of the facts, but I do know that a fired county employee has the right to appeal his case to the Merit Board and if the Merit Board sides with the employee then the employee will be reinstated and there is nothing that the Police Chief can do about it but to put them back to work. A fired employee also has the chance to collect unemployment. So when an employee offers to resign in lieu of termination, it is almost always the best decision for the county. I’m not sure what these officers are doing now; if they are re-employed as cops are not. You seem to know everything, so maybe you know what departments they are working for. I’m sure that their GA POST record reflects this incident and that any agency that considers hiring them (given they are even eligible) would see their disciplinary history.
You are obviously not a Bannister fan, so would you like to see him still running the county into the ground? What Porter did was get the guy out of office quickly before he could do any more damage. He could have indicted him, arrested him, and in maybe 2 to 3 years he would have went to trial. Maybe he would have been convicted, maybe not. You get the point?
pcjohn, you really need to check your facts before you open your mouth and make the problem worse. People like you are the exact reason that the problem of hate and discontent for police officers gets worse. Why would you comment on things that you have no idea about or have not at the very least done some research on? I'm not familiar with all of the incidents that you referenced but I do know for a FACT that the Officers who tasered the waffle house cook all resigned and one was indicted. The indicted officer later entered a plea and was sentenced. Lyndsey Perry, the officer arrested for a DUI in Hall County entered a plea to Reckless Driving and resigned from the GCPD. To blame an officer for attempting to help a suicidal person in the heat of the moment is unfair.
So when you say that "Chief Waters let all of these bums slide without penalty" is nothing more than a lie and frankly you make the problem worse.
All good points roaads1. Thanks for you open minded attitude. Cops sometimes have a bad reputation and much of it is earned. It's unfortunate because they have a very difficult job. The sad part is that it only takes a few bad apples to ruin the reputation of an entire force. It reminds me of the story that was on the Discovery Channel a few nights ago about Dekalb Sheriff Dorsey, and how he was the mastermind behind killing the newly elected sheriff. Lawyers also have a bad reputation and unfortunately Danny is a badge carrying lawyer. So, people are going to have bad things to say about him. His office is responsible for prosecuting tens of thousands of the inmates that are housed in the detention center. Each of those inmates has family and friends and most of them don't have a favorable view of the DA's Office. On the flip side, there are tens of thousands of people who have been positively influenced by him and his office.
Possession of less than an oz of marijuana is a misdemeanor, prosecuted as a county ordinance in Recorders Court. Maximum sentence is $1000 fine and 1 year in jail. That story roaads1 is false. Not everyone is going to agree with someone in his position that has to make the decisions that he makes, on a daily basis, but I tell you that I know him to be a good and honorable man. Pittypatjewels, he has prosecuted several police officers. Of course he supports the GCPD, he prosecutes the cases that they make, but he's not blind. You sound like you have some first hand experience and may have a tainted opinion. Danny or his office look at the details of every case and make decisions based on evidence that can be presented in court.
pcjohn, you have no idea what you are talking about. You do not know how fortunate you are to have Danny Porter as your DA. He has the utmost character, morals and ethics. He runs his office like a true leader, always conscious of the tax payers money. Trust me, count your blessings.
