HonestIngine, could you please validate your claim of a cover up please? Provide one example of the police department being involved in any type of past effort to cover up their misconduct. If you can, maybe the county administration will respond and I will gladly apologize. Having lived in Gwinnett County for some time, I am unaware of any police cover ups.
I do have to ask, are you pcjohn with a new user name? Your posts, or trolling, seem very similar to his. Again, if you have any facts, post them. If not, you are simply attacking hard working men and women who risk their own safety to help others. Even yours should the need arise.

I believe that everyone, including the police officers involved, would have preferred that this had come to a more peaceful conclusion. It is always best for any humane society to have a criminal's fate decided in a court with the ultimate decision of guilt/innocence decided by a jury of peers. Unfortunately, Mr. Pike made a very bad decision. He struck one officer and tried to run over other officers in his attempt to flee with the full knowledge that he was wanted for outstanding crimes. Mr. Pike, and only Mr. Pike, is responsible for his behavior and poor decisions.
Honest Ingine, where did you get your information that substantiates any claims that the police department is "trigger happy?" Also, your statement that Mr. Pike was unarmed is false as well. He utilized the vehicle and was able to injure an officer in his attempt to flee. I would suggest that you use the search capability of your computer and you will find that police officers are murdered every year by vehicle assaults. Lastly, do a little research on shooting to wound and you will find that this idea is very unrealistic. I will not waste any further time on the subject as it is always rejected after any thoughtful research. Maybe your search and subsequent post will put this to rest once and for all.
Again, this is a tragedy that I believe everyone involved with wished would have ended more peacefully. To trivialize the incident and indict the officers without "facts" is disappointing.
Before this becomes a forum for discussing political beliefs or feelings for public safety personnel, I want to thank Sergeant Teague and the other officers for their service. They risked their own personal safety for others. In this case those needing help were fire fighters, but don't think for one minute that they would have acted any differently had it been your family in need. So let me be the first to say thank you and hope you get well soon Sergeant Teague.
Hopewell should be ashamed of themselves. To hear them speak so fondly of such an evil person is disappointing. It makes me wonder what they are teaching their students.
Mike, please don't go away mad, just go away.
Speaking of throwing someone under the bus. When this criminal agreed to take a bribe fulling knowing that the transaction would result in a business that would launder money for drug dealers, she through every police officer in this county under the bus. Lets not forget the citizens who expect to live in a drug free community. I only hope she spends so much time in prison that there are not enough funds raised to keep her supplied with cigarettes and candy from the prison store.
Buford Guy is correct and we can get rid of this trash. We no longer need Beaudreau and his Napoleon complex.
