Our "daddy's" are very special. Lovely memorial. Many prayers to you and your family.
I'm totally with Buzz G! You hire them - and you absolutely own the issue.
This is fabulous, Holley! Congratulations!
It would certainly seem that the City of Duluth was negligent in hiring an unstable individual as a police office. Don't they go through extensive psychological testing? Isn't that a requirement?
The City of Duluth issued this "off-kilter , off-duty" officer the firearm in which he utilized to shoot and harm this decorated police officer for absolutely no reason (who was also working an off-duty assignment at a public school) - so you are darn right they are responsible for monetary damages to him and his family.
What is happening here at the hands of this "crafty" judge his loop-hole way around a jury-trial is a pure travesty!
The article states that this school is "the only facility in the district that didn't have them."
A better public relations spin could have been "in light of the recent tragedies impacting our schools, all schools in the district are now fully standardized with surveillance systems."
As far as where will cameras be next: there are already everywhere my friend. Parks, malls, traffic lights. Big brother is watching and tracking more than any of us probably realize or wish to admit!
Why was this child not paneled and sent to the Give center for at risk students in Gwinnett. I know Gwinnett students that have been sent there for far less school policy violations.. Something is very wrong here!!
Just a few basic tidbits here:
I'm sorry - it just seems that many, many mistakes were made here. People getting a traffic ticket who are found with less than an once are immediately hauled off to jail.... and with 4-large containers smelling of raw pot - and a confession - there were no arrests??????
Not adding up!
In no way does my post imply "blame" toward the shop owner. However, it does suggest that the shop owner should have taken greater responsibility in protecting his/her high-risk inventory from theft; not only for the public's safety, but for the business's best interest as well. You can bet this business owner is looking at a higher liability premium now!
Shouldn't higher-risk businesses like this one be required to have additional security measures in place (by city/county ordinance)? Such as retractable steel bars beyond the glass front? Special/similar requirements are in place for liquor stores, adult material stores, adult entertainment businesses. Even the UPS Store in Grayson has a retractable security system protecting it's printers/copiers as it offers 24-hour access to its mailbox customers. You would think a gun shop owner would have exercised better security measures.
Thank you for your service to Gwinnett County Mike. You did a fine job and it is most often a thankless job. I will certainly miss you and I look forward to your next endeavor.
