FBI Targets Georgia – Who’s on their hit list now?

FBI Targets Public Officials

A recent AP story revealed that the FBI has formed a task force to investigate crime and corruption in Georgia. But who are they targeting this time? It’s not Insane Clown Posse gangs, it’s not bank robbers, it’s not drug trafficker, it’s judges, elected officials, and law enforcement agents. The very people we trust to enforce the law!

The FBI is investigating local public officials. Why? Georgia has a history of being one of the most corrupt states in the nation. Over the past 30 years hundreds of sheriffs, judges, politicians and government workers have been indicted, arrested and convicted for violating their oath of office or violation of state and federal laws.

State and local agencies have done little to keep local official in check and stop the corruption. Some public officials feel untouchable and protected by local law enforcement and judges who refuse to investigate and prosecute corrupt officials. Often district attorneys refuse to investigate and present evidence to grand juries for possible prosecution.

State agencies whose job it is to investigate wrong doings by public officials have become nothing more than dog and ponies shows, offering, at best, a slap on the wrist when public officials violate laws. Fines levied are often paid by taxpayers.

The FBI recognizes the depth of crime and corruption in this state and we should welcome their involvement to help restore confidence and integrity in the criminal justice system.

Any thoughts?

To Missy Guider-Holmes: I feel really sorry for you. Your lack of compassion is the result of a cold heart. I hope you get a taste of Douglas county justice. Punishment in this country is suppose to be humane and civilized not cruel. Punishment is loss of freedom not torture beating or starvation. You probably would have cheered on Hitler.....

Amen Chad....Judge James is not a racist though. He hates all poor people. I will have a party when that evil man dies.

Bruce and Phil....I will go you one better. I worked on the Fire System in the New Court House. I was nearly finished when I was told that My company was finished with the project. I thought this strange but found out why later. They fired contractors and then hired new contractors to "finish" the project paying them a full contract price. The contractors they hired where all bogus companies and all owned and financed by the sheriffs bank. I am so glad the regulators shut that bank down. The next scheme is clever as well: Sheriff Millers bank owned a private probation company called Maximus. Wanna know who the investors are? Three superior court judges 1 DA 1 former DA and his brother. The sheriff arrests them the judge convicts and sentences them and every conviction gets a heavy probation sentence. Look up former sheriff Earl Lee if you want to see corruption.

To all who realize just how bad things are in Georgia all over. Come out on November 5th, 2013 and join the Million Mask March on Georgia(<--the name of the Facebook page if you wish to learn more) there are over 179 protests going on world wide against the corruption that is taking over our state, our nation, and our world. Money is the deciding factor in politics these days not whether whatever bill, law, or act is being voted on will help or hurt the people. If you realize this as many others do please look into the American Anti-Corruption Act. It is what our country needs to get money out of politics and the care of the people back in them.
