Turning off Lights & Sirens...Isn't That Distracted Driving??...
Officer Terry Belvin, 44, had just stopped searching for a dangerous driver & cut off his overhead lights & sirens just before the fatal crash.
Justin Sullivan had just turned 25 years old when he and best friend Quentin Byrd, 21, were struck on Highway 7 in a town some 60 miles south of Atlanta.   #distracteddriving   #fatalaccident   #georgia

Many #georgia  citizens feel that civil forfeitures represent a dangerous area of the U.S. justice system where, by law, a person is supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty (and not the other way around).

An investigation conducted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution looked into how funds over a five-year period were spent in Georgia. 

According to the newspaper, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard spent thousands of dollars gleaned from civil forfeitures on pricey dinners and an elaborate home security system for himself. In November 2009, he allegedly paid $800 to rent out a movie theater. Three months later, Howard told his employees they’d have to take 10 furlough days due to budget constraints.

There Won't Be 'Guns Everywhere' in Georgia
Legislation signed by Gov. Nathan Deal (R) last week bans weapons from places of worship but gives religious leaders the authority to make exceptions to that ban for licensed gun owners. In the days since it was signed, senior religious leaders in Georgia's Catholic & Episcopal communities have vowed not to allow such exceptions.

Jason Carter, a Democratic state senator & grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, voted for the "guns everywhere" bill in the state Senate. He improved the bill in the legislature by eliminating language that would have allowed guns on college campuses, and specifying that churches would have to opt in to be subject to the looser law.

Oscar the horse could not be stopped from bolting down a Savannah street, nearly taking out several pedestrians. Part of the horrifying ordeal happened without a driver after the out-of-control equine knocked his handler out of the carriage. #spooked   #horse   #georgia

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal is working on a way to legalize medical marijuana for treatment of children with seizure disorders after a bill to do so died in the Georgia legislature last month.
