    I find hard to believe,becuse he seem to be a caring father who was left with the responsibility of taking his children.I do think that he is being set up by a vnedictive ex-spouse.

      People find it hard to beieve beacause they are blind. If you knew him at all, you would have been able to see through his act. I did the first time I met him.He wasn't left with the responsibility of his child. He lied and the courts believed him because of his standing in the comm.There was no bases for his lies,except to gain full access to the victim, which the courts allowed because they were his friend.

    This comes as no surprise. What do you think law enforcement look at with their computers in their car sitting in their cars with the air condition on, wasting gas and time? You guessed it. Their web viewing content should be monitored by an independent citizen's oversight committee. How many more are out there?

    I actually went to college near Cleveland (in White County GA) and although this is shocking and abhorrent behavior from a trusted peace officer, and is no doubt a serious topic and newsworthy, I still sit here wondering why WCTV way the heck down here in north Florida is reporting on it. Thats like 300-400 miles away clear on the other side of Atlanta, why is this considered news down here LOL. I mean if it were Valdosta or even Macon I could understand it...but Dahlonega GA...thats near the Tennessee border. Again thats not to detract from the seriousness of the subject matter.

    Well this is nothing more than a pile! This pile should be locked-up in general population, where the pile can become more familiar with those that it locked-up! Thanx.
