Nice job, Carrie!! I've been through the Gwinnett County 911 Center on several tours. You can't truly understand what they do until you see these professionals in action! Thanks for always being there!
From what I understand, his dad's drivers license was suspended...
The court will sort this all out. If there are extenuating circumstances, they'll be presented. Everyone just needs to keep supporting Amadi through this process.
My child wouldn't be driving without the proper license. We went through the correct licensing procedures because it is the LAW.
What on God's green earth does "an insult charge to get the maximum effect in the quota driven arrest docket book" mean? What does that have to do with anything? your post is an emotionally charged rant directed at people who are just doing what they get paid to do. You really think the police and solicitor want to put this young man through this? As a Driver's Ed teacher I can assure you that both Amadi and his father knew the rules regarding whether or not he should be driving. All teens know the rules. It's a shame his dad's poor judgement (and suspended driver's license) has put the young man in this position, but he could have said "no."
Thank you, Gwinnett Citizens Fire Academy Alumni Association, for being out there and spreading the message of Fire Safety!!
I assure you, the Police Department and the Solicitor's office are not happy about having to put this young man through all of this. Unfortunately, their hands are tied. If we expect our officials to uphold the laws, we must understand that they have to do it across the board. Intent, or lack thereof in this case, has nothing to do with it. That part of it is up to the courts to sort out. As was stated in the article, the courts will take all of the circumstances into consideration. Your statement about the community standing by Amadi through all of this is what's most important right now. That's what he needs to help him face the future; not only as he goes through the court process, but also as he recovers from the loss of his father.
Congratulations, CPL Paul! Proud to serve with you!
Who exactly told them they had to leave? If Hobby Lobby told them they could be there, then I'd like to hear the explanation the officials have before passing judgement.
R.I.P., Junior. Always loved to watch you play...
