CNN, “The Most Trusted Name In News”, Goes Well Beyond Reporting News And Exposes Filmmaker After The Private American Citizen’s Extraordinary Attempts To Conceal His Identity

September 17, 2012

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – This morning on CNN, the identity and past of scapegoated filmmaker Nikoula Nikoula was revealed to American audiences despite the private citizen’s extraordinary attempts to conceal his identity.

During his late night frog march with Los Angeles County Deputies last week, Nikoula wore a heavy winter coast, scarf and hat with sunglasses to conceal his identity, this despite a heat wave that has left Southern California sweltering even in the middle of the night. The efforts to conceal his identity was due to death threats made against him from radical Islamist terrorists who, according to the White House, see the YouTube video Nikoula produced as justification for cold-blooded murder.

CNN acknowledged this fact and then went on to show a picture of Nikoula as well as reveal information that the boastfully said they “dug up” on the filmmaker. CNN went on to editorialize by saying the film would be “Oscar worthy, if HATEFUL were a category.” This continues CNN’s long history of going beyond reportage of “facts,” as they pretend to do, and actual advocacy for the agenda of America’s enemies. Former Chairman Ted Turner was famous for his support of the Soviet Union during the cold war and CNN gained exclusive access to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq while staying silent about many of the regime’s atrocities they witnessed.

One wonders if CNN would have done all this digging on author Salmon Rushdie when he was first threatened with a fatwah in 1989. At the time, Rushdie was celebrated and hailed as a courageous artist for penning “The Satanic Verses” which radical Islamist found so offensive Rushdie was sentenced to death in abstention in Iran.

Here we are, only 23 years later, and CNN, the most trusted name in news, aids the terrorists in finding their man… and aids the Obama Administration in furthering the scape-goating of Nikoula and his video to distract from their failed leadership in the Middle East.

Former Atlanta Federal Prison Doctor Lewis Jackson Arrested, Charged After Sexually Abusing Inmates And Lying To Federal Agents – Also Charged With Abusing Another Inmate In Washington DC

September 17, 2012

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – A former federal prison doctor has been charged with sexually abusing inmates.

The U.S. Attorney’s office in Atlanta says Dr. Lewis Jackson appeared in court Thursday and was released on bond. He was indicted last week on three counts of sexually abusing a ward and one count of lying to federal agents.

A lawyer for Jackson could not immediately be located.

Prosecutors say the 30-year-old Lewis worked at the federal penitentiary in Atlanta from January 2011 through last month. They say he tried to perform sex acts on three male inmates in October 2011.

Jackson was charged last week in superior court in Washington, D.C., with three counts of sexually abusing another inmate there in 2008. He was out on bond in that case when he was arrested in Atlanta.

District Attorney Candidate Wants Answers – Current District Attorney Julia Slater And Columbus Georgia Police Dragging Their Feet For Over A year Since Police Officer Vincent Lockhart Jr. Shot And Killed Ft. Benning Fire Inspector

September 15, 2012

COLUMBUS, GEORGIA – It has been more than a year since the robbery of the MEA Federal Credit Union that ended in a deadly shooting. A man running for District Attorney on the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit is frustrated with the way the investigation is being handled.

Mark Post held a press conference Thursday and spoke about a civilian fire inspector at Fort Benning who was shot by a police officer during the robbery. That man’s involvement in the robbery or status as a victim has not yet been determined by officials.

“Tony Carr’s family wants to know what happened that day. My opponent should act on that case and she should act now,” said Post.

Post doesn’t understand what is keeping investigators from arriving at a conclusion. He believes there is no reason for the delay. Post added that in addition to the lack of closure for the family, there is the additional issue of keeping an officer on indefinite leave.

“Officer Vincent Lockhart Jr. has been on paid administrative leave since that day in September of last year. I suspect that Officer Lockhart would like to get back to work. And, of course the taxpayers are paying for that,” said Post.

Julia Slater, the current District Attorney, said there is a good reason why she is taking so long but she could not elaborate on the specific details.

“I can assure you that I have been working diligently on this matter and it will be resolved as soon as possible,” said Slater, “Having performed this task in my role as District Attorney, I know that each officer-related shooting must be handled on a case-by-case basis and there can be no artificial timeline.”

Murray County Georgia Deputy Sheriff Josh Greeson Fired After Planting Drugs And Arresting Woman Who Accused County Chief Magistrate Judge Bryant Cochran Of Soliciting Sex – Judge Quit Amid State Investigation Into It And Presigned Warrants Provided To Law Enforcement

August 31, 2012

MURRAY COUNTY, GEORGIA – The Georgia watchdog agency for judges is re-examining how it investigates wayward judges and how it protects witnesses in light of allegations coming out of Murray County.

One Murray County sheriff’s deputy has been fired and his supervisor is on paid leave after the Georgia Bureau of Investigation examined whether the officers planted drugs on the car of a woman who accused a county judge of soliciting her for sex.

Angie Garmley’s complaint against Chief Magistrate Bryant Cochran sparked a state Judicial Qualification Commission investigation and led to Cochran’s resignation. Her complaint also revealed that Cochran was illegally presigning warrants for officers to use.

Cochran has denied that he solicited Garmley but admitted to presigning warrants.

Prosecutors dropped the drug charges against Garmley last week.

On Wednesday, Deputy Josh Greeson, the arresting officer, was fired based on evidence that he lied to the GBI when agents were investigating Garmley’s arrest, said Murray County Sheriff Howard Ensley.

Sheriff’s Capt. Michael Henderson is on paid leave, and Ensley said he won’t decide whether Henderson will be fired until Friday.

The sheriff said he hasn’t been told that anyone else at the sheriff’s office was involved, and he wouldn’t say what Greeson lied about to the GBI.

“We’re concerned greatly and it’s a saddening situation that this has come about,” he said.

Judicial Qualification Commission officials said the allegations and the entire investigation are alarming.

The GBI investigation showed Garmley was targeted because she was cooperating with the Judicial Qualification Commission, said commission Director Jeff Davis. Such an act is unheard of at this level, he said.

“It sends a chilling message to the public,” he said. “It could discourage legitimate complaints from being filed from fear of retribution.”

Commission Chairman John Allen said state authorities are also going to re-examine the resignation agreements they work out with judges. During an investigation, the commission often tries to get a wayward judge to resign by agreeing not to disclose the information gathered against him or her to law enforcement, Allen said. However, the commission will turn the information over to the GBI or FBI if there is an ongoing criminal investigation, he said.

“This will give us pause for working out agreements with judges in the future,” he said.

On Aug. 15, Cochran was allowed to resign from his position after he agreed with the commission that he would never seek a judicial office again.

The day before his resignation, Garmley was arrested after Greeson said he found meth inside a magnetic box underneath her car.

Henderson was also on the scene after Greeson requested backup, said Henderson’s attorney Larry Stagg. He was on the scene because Garmley’s husband, who wasn’t in the car, was violent, Stagg said.

GBI Agent in Charge Jerry Scott said he couldn’t discuss the case in detail but said authorities felt the evidence needed to be given to the sheriff to take quick action against the officers.

The sheriff’s office has been helpful with the investigation and authorities believe Greeson and Henderson were the only two involved from the office, he said.

“We have no information that there is widespread corruption within the Murray County Sheriff’s Office,” Scott said.

Georgia Department Of Transporation Cameras In Sandy Springs Targeted By Copper Thieves – Miles Of Wiring Also Stolen From About 50 Light Poles

August 29, 2012

SANDY SPRINGS, GEORGIA – Copper thieves are getting bolder, having struck another government installation in north Fulton County. This time, they disabled Georgia Department of Transportation pole-mounted traffic cameras on a busy expressway.

GDOT workers called police when the video feed from a pair of cameras on Ga. 400 at the Chattahoochee River in Sandy Springs went dark at the start of the Monday afternoon rush hour.

When officers arrived at the scene, “they realized copper and fiber had been stolen from a junction box out there,” Capt. Keith Zgonc of the Sandy Springs Police Department told Channel 2 Action News. About 1,000 feet of cable and copper wiring was gone.

GDOT spokesman Mark McKinnon said, “We’re having a real problem with people going out and taking that copper.”

“Having those cameras operable is important,” McKinnon said. “That’s what helps your average motorist get to work every day, that we’re able to see what’s going on out there.”

The thefts also cause projects to be delayed, waste taxpayer money and are dangerous to the thieves, McKinnon said.

“Someone could get themselves killed doing something like that,” he said.

The latest theft follows the recent arrest of a man who, with an accomplice, allegedly stole miles of copper wiring from about 50 light poles in Sandy Springs.

Antonio O. Beasley, 48, of Atlanta was arrested and charged with felony theft by taking and other offenses in a series of heists that cost Sandy Springs an estimated $30,000. Police are seeking Beasley’s companion.

In the GDOT camera copper theft, authorities are asking anyone who saw something suspicious around 4 p.m. Monday at Ga. 400 and the Chattahoochee to contact Sandy Springs or Roswell police.

Dumbass Clayton County Georgia Corrections Officer Christina Danielle Allen, Training To Be A Deputy Sheriff, Suspended After Arrest For Buying Drugs On A Lunch Break

August 28, 2012

CLAYTON COUNTY, GEORGIA – Police have arrested an officer accused of trying to buy drugs on her lunch break, and it’s all caught on tape.

Channel 2’s Mark Winne obtained undercover video that shows the officer, who was wearing the camera with his gun drawn, as he walked up to the Clayton County officer’s car.

Butts County Sheriff Gene Pope said a Clayton County corrections officer and deputy in training, Christina Danielle Allen, made an appointment for her lunch break to buy a highly addictive painkiller, Roxicodone.

“That’s a heavily abused drug?” Winne asked Pope.

“Yes it is,” Pope said.

Pope said she even asked the alleged drug dealer for a police discount before she left the Georgia Public Safety Training Center, where she was in training to move up to deputy.

“We were monitoring a phone used by a known drug dealer and that phone started receiving texts regarding the purchase of some pills,” Pope told Winne.

Allen’s arrest was caught on camera from the arresting officer.

On the video you can hear the officer say to Allen, “That has got to be the stupidest thing a law enforcement officer can do! OK? You’re under arrest for possession of a controlled substance. You will not finish the academy. You will not go back to work as a police officer. You understand that?”

“She came up, made the purchase and we made the arrest,” Pope said.

Allen has now been charged with drug possession and violating her oath.

An investigator told Winne, Allen had been abusing pills since January, using them to alleviate pain and get sleep.

“She’ll be placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of this investigation,” Deputy James Beveridge of the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office told Winne. “If she has an abuse problem could she have gotten help? She certainly could’ve. All she had to do was bring that to any person in the Sheriff’s Department from a supervisory standpoint and we would have immediately gotten her help.”

Allen’s mother told Winne by phone her daughter does not take drugs, has been drug tested in recent months and passed, and takes pride in her job.

Murray County Georgia Chief Magistrate Bryant Cochran Under Investigation For Pre-Signing Arrest Warrants

August 11, 2012

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – A prosecutor says a judicial watchdog agency is investigating a north Georgia judge for allegedly pre-signing warrants for law enforcement officials.

District Attorney Bert Poston said the Judicial Qualification Commission is investigating Chief Magistrate Bryant Cochran of Murray County over the accusations. Public defender Mike McCarthy said he was aware of the investigation.

Police must explain to a judge why they believe a suspect likely committed a crime before getting a warrant. If a judge believes there is probable cause, he then signs the warrant, allowing the police to arrest the suspect.

Cochran attorney Christopher Townley told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/P8iLKE ) that if the public defender’s office thinks there were illegal warrants, they will be “greatly disappointed.”

Officials for the Judicial Qualifications Commission declined to comment.
