RICHARD MERRITT: BARCOMPLAINT.COM REPORTS FORMER SMYRNA ATTORNEY ARRESTED ON FELONY ELDER ABUSE, THEFT, EXPLOITATION AND CHECK FRAUD CHARGES — 3/05/2018
Cobb County, GA – Former Smyrna attorney Richard V. Merritt, who was disbarred Monday after admitting to settling a client’s suit for $75,000 and then pocketing the money, woke up in the Cobb County Jail Thursday after being arrested on separate felony elder abuse, theft, exploitation and check fraud charges.
The spokesperson for the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office said he had no further information on the charges, which were apparently filed by the Smyrna Police Department. The booking report includes a notation that Merritt is to be held for the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, where a press liaison said they received a bench warrant for “indirect criminal attempt.”
He provided no further information, and there was no immediate response from Smyrna police.
On Friday, Cobb County District Attorney Vic Reynolds said there was little he could offer concerning Merritt’s case so far.
“We have yet to receive the complete investigative file from the Cobb Sheriff’s Department,” said Reynolds via email. “When we do, our White Collar Unit will begin the process of determining what charges we will proceed to the grand jury with. In addition, our Investigators will begin reviewing the file upon receipt to see if there are any additional victims or charges which need to be pursued.”
Merritt remained in jail on Friday afternoon.
Merritt is the subject of multiple civil suits in Cobb County, including one filed by a woman who claims he forged her name on a $150,000 settlement agreement and check without her knowledge. She claims Merritt never turned over any funds.
He also faces several legal malpractice and fraud lawsuits in Cobb County from clients claiming he agreed to handle their cases and then never filed them and never pursued any actions.
Merritt has represented himself in each of the lawsuits.
The attorney for a plaintiff in one case, Sapp & Moriarty partner Daniel Moriarty—interviewed before word of Merritt’s arrest was known—said he was surprised at the mild tone in the state Supreme Court’s disbarment opinion, which only said Merritt “settled a client’s personal injury matter for $75,000 but failed to promptly disburse those funds to his client or her medical providers and failed to render a full accounting of the funds to his client.”
“That’s a euphemism for stealing money,” said Moriarty. “I talked to an investigator who has seen his bank records and determined that he had stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars. It just blows my mind what he’s gotten away with.”
According the bar complaint reviewed by the Daily Report, Merritt was retained to handle a personal injury matter in December 2016 and settled it last February, cashing the forged check Feb.7. On Feb. 10, he filed a lawsuit “and continued to lead me on until late May 2017 when I learned what he had done,” the confidential complaint said.
“I have never seen a dime of the $75,000,” said Merritt’s former client.
Another civil suit filed in Cobb County State Court last year said Merritt forged a husband and wife’s signature on a settlement and check in a medical malpractice case and never told them.
Another complaint said Merritt accepted a med-mal case and continually told his client that he was investigating it. Merritt sent emails saying “All is well and we are moving forward on your case,” and “No worries I’m on it!”
Then he stopped accepting the woman’s calls, and the filing deadline passed.
In that case, Judge Maria Golick struck Merritt’s answers and ordered a damages-only trial after finding he “willfully failed to respond” to hearing notices. Golick scheduled a show-cause criminal contempt hearing, and the decision is apparently still under advisement, according to court records.
In the case Moriarty is handling, Merritt also allegedly claimed to be conducting discovery and searching for experts, even scheduling bogus depositions for his clients, only to cancel them at the last minute.
Merritt was the principal for the Smyrna-based Merritt Firm, whose offices were the subject of several dispossessory actions between 2015 and 2017, according to court records.
Last August, Merritt sued two attorneys on behalf of spine surgeon and frequent medical expert James Chappuis. At the time, Merritt said he vice president and general counsel of Chappuis’ Orthopaedic & Spine Surgery of Atlanta.
That case settled confidentially shortly after it was filed.

[DeKalb County commissioners are discussing options to remove the Lost Cause Confederate obelisk in Decatur Square, erected in 1908 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy.]
DeKalb committee to discuss removal of Confederate monument
By Rosie Manins May 4, 2018 (…)
DeKalb committee to discuss removal of Confederate monument
he next step for DeKalb County in its quest to remove a 110-year-old Confederate monument from Decatur Square will be decided by the county’s operations committee.
The committee – made up of DeKalb Commissioners Steve Bradshaw, as chairman, Nancy Jester and Mereda Davis Johnson – will discuss what to do at their next meeting on May 8.
DeKalb committee to discuss removal of Confederate monument
Mereda Davis Johnson
Johnson, representing District 5, introduced a resolution to remove the Lost Cause monument that was passed by the Board of Commissioners in January, and has since suggested a taskforce be set up, involving DeKalb citizens, to explore options and make recommendations.
Commissioner Kathie Gannon, of Super District 6, has also suggested the monument be relocated to county property in a less prominent position, and that historic context be added to the display.
Those options will be considered by the committee, as the county received only two responses to a public request for information about moving the monument, which ran 60 days from Feb. 22 to April 23.
DeKalb chief operating officer Zachary Williams said one respondent suggested the monument be left in place, outside the historic DeKalb County courthouse, and turned into a veterans’ memorial.
The other respondent suggested the 30-foot-tall obelisk, erected in 1908 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, could be relocated to the Allatoona Pass Battlefield of the Red Top Mountain State Park in northwest Georgia.
DeKalb committee to discuss removal of Confederate monument
Williams, speaking to commissioners during their Committee of the Whole meeting on May 1, said the county had contacted the director of the department of natural resources for state parks, who agreed to respond if the county provided a detailed request or submission.
Williams said another “potentially interested party” was sent a submission form by the county at the end of April.
“We’ve continued to solicit and seek ideas, although the RFI period has expired,” he said.
Prior to issuing an RFI, the county also contacted the Atlanta History Center, Oakland Cemetery, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, Pickett’s Mill Battlefield Site, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Marietta Confederate Cemetery and Marietta National Cemetery, to gauge interest in the monument.
“We did not receive an interest from any of those, and overall we’ve not received a robust interest in doing anything as it relates to moving or contextualizing or anything else as it relates to the monument,” Williams said.
Rader, who represents District 2, suggested the operations committee take charge, to form a recommendation for the Board of Commissioners to consider.
DeKalb committee to discuss removal of Confederate monument
“I think that it would be time now, given that we’ve solicited input from outside folks, that we then commit this to the operations committee, since they’re responsible for county property, to take those suggestions and maybe come up with our next step,” Rader said. “Because what I see us having to do is to go ahead and now resolve to take the next steps forward, whether it’s one of the suggestions from commissioners or a hybrid of those, depending on how the commission wants to move forward and it seems like that deliberation would best occur in the operations committee.”
In April, Johnson said the county would remove the monument no matter what, once it had explored its legal options.
“We have the authority to do so,” she said April 10. “I would like to put it in storage until we can get someone that can take it. We have to follow the law and the bureaucracy but we intend to remove the monument.”
The obelisk, which “glorifies and praises soldiers of the Confederacy,” has become a contentious issue for thousands in the community who have signed petitions for and against its removal.
Hundreds of people have also marched against the monument and held vigils calling for it to be taken away from downtown Decatur.
Opponents of the Jim Crow-era obelisk say it is inappropriate to have a monument, which was created to intimidate people of color, in a prominent position at the county’s seat of justice and administration.
They point out the monument’s installation in Decatur Square came on the heels of the bloody Atlanta race riot of 1906, when armed white mobs attacked black people, killing more than 25 and injuring more than 90.
Those who prefer the monument to stay in situ say it is an important reminder of history, and that more information should be installed around the structure for historic context.
Hell, let’s all get together and bitch about something, just for the sake of finding out if the County will remove it. NOTICE the article shows that the thing is at the “old” Courthouse. Not at the currently used Courthouse, but the ancient, antique courthouse. So WTF, is the problem here?
DECATUR, Ga. – The DeKalb County Fleet Management Department was awarded the “Best Fleet” in North America Award sponsored by 100 Best Fleets in America and Governing Magazine. The county earned first place out of 38,000 public fleets and was recognized for distinguished customer service, sustainability practices and employee training.
“The DeKalb Fleet Management Department exemplifies all that is right about public service,” said Tom C. Johnson, founder of the 100 Best Fleets in America program. “The county has developed best practices that reduce the need for unscheduled repairs, maintenance costs and negative environmental impacts.”
Fleet Management maintains repair services for a fleet of approximately 3,600 county vehicles and equipment. In the past year, the department has maintained a 99 percent positive feedback rate on customer service surveys and implemented green initiatives that include upgrading the fueling program, opening an environmentally friendly above-ground fuel site and reducing gasoline and diesel fuel consumption. The county also trained nearly 300 drivers on idle reduction which limits engine running time and improves DeKalb’s air quality.
“DeKalb County is pleased to recognize the leadership of Robert Gordon, deputy director of fleet management,” said CEO Michael Thurmond. “His commitment to excellent service, environmental stewardship and creating a high-trust culture is an example for all of us to follow.”
Fleet Management which is part of the Department of Public Works includes 1,600 full- and part-time employees and a budget of $460 million.
“We keep DeKalb rolling,” said Deputy Director Gordon.” Winning the 100 Best Fleet Award shows that the county is providing value to the citizens we serve and that we are focused on doing the right thing.”
Started nineteen years ago, the annual 100 Best Fleets in America program recognizes high-trust, high-performance fleet operations in North America and Canada. Criteria for the award includes use of technology, performance, collaboration, service turnaround time and accountability. This award was recently announced at the NAFA Institute and Expo.

DeKalb bills to abolish CEO and create Greenhaven city fall short in Ga. House
By Tia Mitchell – The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Kathryn Rice speaks in favor of creating the city of Greenhaven during a press conference at the State Capitol last month. TIA MITCHELL/TIA.MITCHELL@AJC.COM
Posted: 4:36 p.m. Thursday, March 01, 2018
Two bills affecting DeKalb County — one eliminating the CEO form of government and one that created the path for the city of Greenhaven — failed to get a vote on the House floor Wednesday.
That means both measures are likely dead for the 2018 session.
Proponents of House Bill 644 said they were surprised to learn Friday that the bill sponsor, Rep. Billy Mitchell, D-Stone Mountain, was no longer in support.
“We found out a new person is going to present our bill and the map is going to change,” said Kathryn Rice, who has led the Greenhaven effort for four years.
Mitchell said he backed off the bill because fellow members of the DeKalb delegation were not on board.
Supporters say the cityhood bill is a fairness issue and that south DeKalb residents should get the chance to vote on forming Greenhaven. Opponents have argued the new city is a bad idea because of its large footprint with 300,000 people and relatively small amount of commercial property.
Although a committee approved the measure largely along party lines with Republicans in favor, it did not come up for a floor vote. Rice said she and others will huddle soon to determine next steps. They aren’t ready to throw in the towel.
“We don’t tolerate suppression of the vote from anybody,” she said.
Ed Williams, chairman of Citizens Against Cityhood in DeKalb, was happy with the outcome. He believes there should be a moratorium on creating cities until new procedures are in place.
“We hope the Georgia General Assembly reforms the cityhood process before it allows any other cityhood or annexation bills to be passed,” Williams said in a news release after the vote. “We hope DeKalb County will have completed its study on how cities impact its services and budget before any other cities are allowed to be created.”

A second bill that would have dissolved the county CEO position also failed to get a floor vote. House Bill 961 was introduced and approved in committee before DeKalb CEO Mike Thurmond and most members of the Board of Commissioners knew it existed. Rep. Meagan Hanson, R-Brookhaven, said she sponsored the legislation after becoming convinced the unique CEO government structure was causing many of the county’s issues.
In addition to facing criticism for being fast-tracked, the bill was panned by those who said DeKalb voters should determine whether the CEO position should be eliminated.
For two years, county leaders have asked members of the DeKalb delegation to create a Charter Review Commission that would come up with recommendations about how the government can operate more effectively. So far, the delegation has not acted.
Hanson said Thursday that she plans to file a resolution showing support for creating a study committee.
Commissioner Jeff Rader, presiding officer of the board, envisions a panel of private citizens and elected officials. If their suggestions include doing away with an elected CEO, he would put it on the ballot as early as 2019, Rader said. Thurmond, who was critical of Hanson’s bill, said he would support the formation of a committee.
“I will work with the DeKalb County Commissioners and the legislative delegation to establish a Charter Review Commission that includes a comprehensive review of our county government,” Thurmond said in a statement. “This will include robust public involvement and rely ultimately on the decision of DeKalb citizens.”

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — Nine people were arrested Saturday after a counter-protest at a “pro-white” rally turned physical, police said.
A group called Rock Stone Mountain scheduled what the called a “pro-white” rally at Stone Mountain park outside of Atlanta to “protest efforts to erase the white race.” According to the group’s Facebook page, the rally was expected to draw just under 500 people, but early on, only about 25 to 30 people had gathered.
All Out Atlanta, an anti-racism group, organized a counter-protest for the same time and location. Both groups had permits from the park and were sanctioned to protest from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Police made provisions to keep the groups in separate sections of the park to ensure the rallies stayed peaceful, but efforts to do so quickly deteriorated.
According to John Bankhead, a spokesman with the Stone Mountain Park Police, nine All Out Atlanta protestors were arrested before noon Saturday.
Authorities say the protesters were asked to take off masks in compliance with a park ordinance. When the protesters refused to comply, they were arrested.
Bankhead said other All Out Atlanta threw rocks. Bankhead himself was struck with a rock, he said.
Authorities were continuing to keep the two rallies separate, but Bankhead said some of the All Out Atlanta protesters were trying to get through blocked areas leading to the Rock Stone Mountain rally.
On Saturday afternoon, park authorities said attractions would be closed for the remainder of the day, but the main park entrance and walking trail would remain open.
Amazing! I live in Stone Mountain, and did not know anything about this before or after it happened. Only in DeKalb County!
My last post stated that there were no other cameras on the property, except the one viewing our property.
Now go back and look at the angle of the camera before, and the angle in the picture above. Now, it is pointed directly at us. Amazing, yes?
After I stated that, the camera pointed more toward our property, and another camera was added to a tree, in yet another neighbor’s property. Another property where no one lives, makes one wonder if the owner of that property knows that his property is being used to spy on us.
Also, the owner went to the property after dark the other night, and had a really big ladder on the truck. He took the ladder off, and I don’t know what tree he climbed, but I would imagine, that now, there is a third camera spying on our every move. I guess if someone, in an answer to a lawsuit, claims that you have been trespassing, they have to get evidence from somewhere, huh?
Grand jury hears more evidence in DeKalb judge case
Updated: 5:22 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, 2015 | Posted: 4:23 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, 2015
By Rhonda Cook – The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
For the second time in a week, a special prosecutor laid out evidence for a grand jury that allegedly proves DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Becker made false statements to the Judicial Qualifications Commission.
Prosecutor Parks White is asking the grand jury to return an indictment against Becker, who resigned March 1 after 14 years on the bench. In a letter announcing her planned retirement, Becker wrote that she was leaving the bench because she was getting married and moving to another county.
Becker allegedly made the false statements during an interview at a law office in Marietta, which made it a Cobb County matter.
White, the district attorney for five counties in northeast Georgia, was appointed special prosecutor when the Cobb district attorney recused his office because three of his top prosecutors were once practiced before Becker as assistant district attorneys in DeKalb.
He left the Cobb courthouse Thursday without commenting. Grand jury proceedings are secret by law.
Becker’s attorney, Brian Steel, also declined comment Thursday.
Becker is accused of making false statements when she was questioned about her sentencing of former DeKalb County Schools Superintendent Crawford Lewis, which the the JQC was investigating.
Two years ago, Lewis was charged with felony racketeering and faced the possibility of up to 65 years in prison. But two weeks before his trial was scheduled to start, Lewis agreed to testify against his two co-defendants. — Pat Reid, the school district’s former chief operating officer, and Reid’s ex-husband, architect Tony Pope. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to let him plead guilty to misdemeanor obstruction of the investigation of school construction contracts and to recommend a sentence of 12 months probation.
Prosecutors and Lewis’ lawyers said Becker agreed to the deal.
Yet, when it came time to sentence Lewis, Becker ordered him jailed for 12 months. She said the deal was void because his testimony was not truthful. Becker also ordered Lewis locked up immediately and refused to consider an appeal bond until she returned the following week from an out-of-town trip to attend the Army-Navy football game.
Nine months later, the JQC started an administrative investigation into Becker. Last September, she was called to to the Marietta law office of JQC member Robert Ingram to answer questions. Becker insisted several times that Lewis never asked for a bond.
On a personal Note, on personal experience…
Personal Note: Judge Becker was the Judge that gave GA Power easement over our entire property, after we proved that GA Power had forged and falsified documentation so that they could claim to have an express grant easement. There was no Dr. Robert Wells in 1937, 1942, or ever. There had been Dr. James Wells, but he passed away before that date.
The Wells Family lived in the Brown-Wells house on Ridge Avenue, which is where the Stone Mountain Historic Society is currently located.
Remember, if you are going to lie, don’t lie about one of the most known families in an area. Also don’t lie about the people’s names in the family. The Wells Family Tree is great! When I saw it, it went back to the 1560’s in England, I believe it was, and the Wells Family came here almost on the Mayflower. A lot of History and Heritage in the Wells Family. Very well documented, and the property the Wells Family had owned, was sold and became Stone Mountain Industrial Park, on the other side of town is where their property had been.
Georgia Power must have paid Judge Becker a lot of money to find against all of our evidence. Including evidence that showed the documents were signed by a ball point pen, which did not come out until the late 60’s. May she get what she deserves!!!
On June 15, 2015 (Check the Date on the Warning, it shows June 13, 2015. The date she was at our property, was July 17, 2015) while getting a cup of coffee, at 08:37 am, I saw someone messing around our gate. I went to see who it was, it was our less than friendly Code Enforcement Officer, J. Brown, leave the Warning on the ground, she screamed at us at the top of her lungs, in front of a whole bunch of neighbors, and went huffing off.
One might wonder why she parked across the street for the visit. According to the recording at DeKalb County Code Enforcement Office, they open at 08:30 am. She was at our house at 08:37 am, and it takes 20-30 minutes to get there from here.
mail from J Brown
The Warning was also mailed to us, from Austell, GA, not Decatur. Notice the date on the postmark, July 17, 2015, the same day she visited us.
The Gate and Fence code enforcement claims we need permits for, has been in place for 20 (twenty) years. We are not on County sewer. Our septic system is in tip top shape.
Looks like a fraudulent claim to me. Makes me wonder who she is friends with. It also makes me wonder why someone would make such a fictional claim against us.

Photo – DeKalb County Courthouse Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh was elected in 2004 and has served as Judge of the Probate Court of DeKalb County since January of 2005. Formerly she served the Probate Court in various capacities since 1985, including Associate Judge, and Acting Judge. She is responsible for appointing and supervising personal representatives of estates who administer the assets of deceased residents of DeKalb County. Additionally, Judge Rosh’s duties include the appointment of guardians for both adults and children, and the issuance of marriage licenses and firearms licenses. Judge Rosh also hears all bench or jury trials concerning estates, guardianships, and mental health.
After copying in 6 pages, I got tired of copying the pages, but if you have been involved in any probate matters, no difference what state you are in, you will know what I am getting at. I have heard numerous stories about the County Court appointed Admiistrators and Guardians. And yes, had to endure the horrors of such. The incident that we were involved with, ended in the death of an elderly, beloved aunt, may her soul rest in peace…
Had I as much sense as I do now, I would have copied each and every page of the Guardian appointed by Rosh, as he had many, many, many pages just like Mary Margaret Oliver has, but alas, I trusted that the cases would not disappear after I had begun looking at the obvious illegal acts that went on in the court, by the court, and through the court and the appointees.
If you are involved in any kind of proceedings in the Probate Court of any state and county, do yourself a favor and copy everything you can, when there is a court appointed entity involved in the proceedings, and gather every bit of information you can get your hands on, it might just save a life!

Fugitive Arrested in Decatur
The man is now facing a litany of drug and other charges; traffic and college classes were temporarily interrupted due to the arrest.
By Justin Ove (Patch Staff)
March 20, 2015 at 3:01am
DeKalb County sheriff’s deputies were able to track down and arrest a fugitive who was wanted on over a dozen criminal charges in a joint operation on Thursday afternoon.
Randall Washington was taken into custody without incident in the vicinity of Memorial Drive at approximately 2:30 p.m. Thursday, a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office statement said. Sheriff’s deputies were joined in the operation by DeKalb police, U.S. Marshals, and Georgia Perimeter College police.
According to the sheriff’s office, Washington was wanted on a failure to appear warrant for charges of possession of cocaine to distribute, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony and obstruction of an officer; felony aggravated assault and felony criminal damage/first degree; along with two counts of family violence battery, criminal trespass damage, and simple battery harm.
In order to minimize the danger to the public, traffic within a several block vicinity of Memorial Drive was intentionally slowed, the sheriff’s office said. Georgia Perimeter College also instituted a temporary lockdown while the operation was ongoing.
One would wonder what the hold up in sentencing is. Like this woman didn’t know what she was doing was illegal?
Elaine Boyer’s sentencing rescheduled again
12:03 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015 | Filed in: Local News
Elaine Boyer’s sentencing has been rescheduled again, this time to March 20, according to Bob Page, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta.
The former DeKalb County commissioner faces about one to two years in federal prison for admittedly funneling more than $78,000 to an evangelist posing as a legislative consultant, with him kicking about $58,000 of it back to her. She also admitted running up more than $15,000 in personal purchases on her county Visa card.
Her sentencing was first set for December, then later for earlier this month. The delay could stem from the time federal prosecutors need to establish if Boyer has provided “substantial assistance” in exchange for their recommendation of a lighter sentence, a condition of her plea agreement.
4:25 p.m. — An Austell company stopped getting calls to service county-owned generators soon after telling suspended DeKalb Chief Operating Officer Burrell Ellis the business would not contribute to his 2012 re-election campaign, a witness testified Tuesday.
Eneida Robles, who at the time worked for Power and Energy Services, had taken three calls in 2012 from Ellis trying to reach one of the business’ owners to ask for money for his re-election race.
Robles said she told him each time “we could not contribute to his campaign” and he became angry. She testified that Ellis said he would contact the county’s purchasing office the company did not want to service DeKalb.
Soon the calls to service DeKalb County generators stopped, Robles testified.
“They told us we couldn’t service DeKalb County until further notice,” Robles said. “I knew our service people were not going out to any annuals (yearly inspections).” Court is in recess until Wednesday morning.
3:50 p.m. — A former employee of an Austell company described in court the tense conversation she had with suspended DeKalb County Chief Operating Officer Burrell Ellis when she told him the business would not contribute to his 2012 re-election campaign.
The contract Power and Energy Services had with DeKalb County to service generators was relatively new and she feared she would lose her job at the small business after Ellis threatened to withhold business.
Eneida Robles testified that she took three calls from Ellis, asking to speak with one of the company owners. Each time she told Ellis co-owner Brandon Cummings was out of the office on a service call, as were her instructions. She had been told calls from Ellis should be treated as a solicitation.
When the third call from Ellis came a few days after the first two, Robles said she checked with her boss before giving Ellis a response to his request to speak to Cummings about a campaign contribution.
“When I got back on the phone, I told him that at this time we were not interested in his services, in providing campaign funds, that we could not contribute to his campaign,” she testified. “He was pretty angry with the fact that he couldn’t get Brandon on the phone. He told me ‘if you don’t want to service DeKalb County then I will contact the purchasing manager over there.’ When I said again we could not contribute, he got more angry. The tone was not a good tone.”
Minutes later, a call came from the head of DeKalb’s purchasing office, Kelvin Walton, she testified.
“I was pretty much worried about my job because I thought I had cost them the contract,” Robles testified.
2:38 p.m. — The first three witnesses called in the trial of suspended DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis offered jurors a quick tutorial on government operations and campaign finance reporting but their testimony didn’t get t o the heart of the corruption case.
A member of the special purpose grand jury that discovered the alleged corruption testified that the 23 members of the panel were assembled first to look at the Department of Watershed Management but their charge was they could examine other county agencies.
Jimmy Davis,the first witness in the trial that could last six weeks, mostly read from the court order that created the 23-person special grand jury, which completed its work in January 2013, and he responded to questions such as how often the grand jury met.
Davis was quickly followed by the head of DeKalb’s elections and voter registration office and then an investigator with the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission, also known at the State Ethics Commission, both to take about the mechanics and requirements of campaign reporting.
None of the three — Davis, Maxine Daniels with the county Office of Voter Registration and Elections and Ethics Commissioner investigator Bethany Whetzel — were asked about the charges of extortion, criminal attempt to commit extortion, bribery and perjury, against Ellis.
Daniels testified the outcome of elections in 2008 and 2012 when Ellis won the vote for DeKalb CEO.
Whetzel explained information contained on Ellis’ campaign disclosure reports.
12:07 p.m. — There will be no evidence any vendor lost a contract because they didn’t contribute to the 2012 re-election campaign of suspended DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis, one of his defense attorneys said in opening statements in just-started corruption trial.
Defense attorney Dwight Thomas said Ellis didn’t have the authority to revoke contracts of more than $50,000 and once jurors hear secretly recorded conversations in their entirely — rather than just the snippet prosecutors played in their opening statement — they will understand that Ellis was not threatening anyone.
He was angry, however, that some vendors did not return his phone calls, Thomas said.
“He (Ellis) will say they don’t have to give (to his campaign) but they can’t be not returning phone calls.,” Thomas said. “They have to show respect for the office.”
11:35 a.m. — One of the attorneys defending suspended CEO Burrell Ellis told jurors they will see he did nothing to personally enrich his bank account or that he took kickbacks from vendors with DeKalb County contracts.
Defense attorney Dwight Thomas said the vendor records prosecutors say Ellis broke the law to get were available to any citizen, just for the asking.
“There will not be one single piece of evidence that Burrell Ellis asked for a bribe or solicited a bribe,” Thomas said. “There will be no evidence Burrell Ellis willfully lied to a special purpose grand jury….There is no evidence Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis took, stole or skimmed any political funds from any campaign.”
Thomas said Ellis at all times “acted within the power and the scope and the responsibilities” of the CEO’s office.
But assistant district attorney Lawanda Hodges, before wrapping up her 38-minute opening statement, played a brief clip from a recording of Ellis telling the county employee over contracts to cut off a vendor who refused to contribute to Ellis’ 2012 re-election campaign, or to “dry him up.”
Hodges said Ellis is guilty of theft by extortion, criminal attempt to commit extortion, bribery and perjury.
10:59 a.m. — A DeKalb County prosecutor told jurors power, punishment and perjury were at the core of the case against former DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis.
Assistant District Attorney Lawanda Hodges said Ellis used his power over an appointed agency head to get a list of vendors and phone numbers to use for soliciting campaign contributions.
He also tried to use that power over vendors to raise money for his 2012 re-election effort and then he threatened to pull lucrative work from companies that didn’t pay up.
Ellis was relentless, even after vendors said “no” and even after vendors said they were no longer interested in doing business with DeKalb, Hodges said.
And when asked before a special purpose grand jury about those threats, he lied, Hodges said.
10:09 a.m. — Even before the jury was brought in for opening statements Tuesday the defense team for suspended DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis suffered two losses.
DeKalb Superior Court Judge Courtney Johnson rejected defense attorney Craig Gillen’s efforts to show prosecutors may have tampered with a witness. Through his questions Gillen focused on assistant district attorney Lawanda Hodges’ email to subpoenaed witness Nina Hall in which the prosecutor included questions and proposed answers that Hodges said came from numerous prep sessions with Hall, a one-time Ellis aide.
Then the judge said prosecutors could use some recordings of Ellis talking about contracts in their opening statement.
9:37 a.m. – Suspended DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis, with his wife sitting behind him and surrounded by his attorneys, is getting his day in court.
Fifteen months after he was first indicted, opening statements in his corruption trial are to begin Tuesday with 12 black women, two black men and two white women — 12 jurors and four alternates — seated to decide if Ellis committed extortion and bribery to advance his political career.
Opening statements, scheduled to begin at 9 a.m., were delayed, however, because all the jurors had not arrived at court. In the meanwhile, the judge heard from attorneys any outstanding motions.
The first issue was whether to quash a subpoena for Nina Hall, a former top aide to Ellis. Hall is expected to decline to answer questions out of concern for self-incrimination unless she is granted immunity.
Prosecutors, led by DeKalb District Attorney Robert James, say the man who once ran DeKalb government and oversaw its $1.2 billion annual budget also strong-armed county vendors into giving him campaign cash.They say they will show Ellis illegally mixed county business with his 2012 re-election campaign by threatening county contractors unless they donated.
“The evidence will not show that Ellis is simply a ‘heavy-handed campaigner,’ but will show that he is an extortionist,” wrote Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney Leonora Grant in one of the hundreds documents unsealed on Tuesday.
Ellis’ defenders are expected to counter that while Ellis was aggressive in raising campaign funds — $1.5 million — he never linked support for his re-election with winning lucrative county business.
But previously sealed pre-trial rulings will limit Ellis top-tier defense team.
Superior Court Judge Courtney Johnson ruled previously that Ellis can’t claim he was set up and his attorneys can’t ask witnesses if they thought an alleged victim of Ellis’ was racist. Johnson also decided that jurors can hear about vendors not included in the indictment who Ellis hit up for campaign contributions.

Police are looking for a man who posed as a sales rep for a Georgia auto dealership and scammed thousands from people who answered a Cragslist ad.
Gwinnett Police said a man identified as Jeff Manders went to Honda Mall of Georgia near Buford, Ga., obtained the vehicle identification number and description of cars, then posted the cars for sale on Craigslist with a price lower than the dealership’s.
He allegedly convinced victims to pay a deposit and then meet him later to complete the sale. He made off with the money.
Manders lives in Barrow County, police said.
Police said a representative from the Honda dealership reported the possible Craigslist scam on Aug. 3. Several customers had come to the business, asking about two specific cars on its used car lot — a 2002 Honda Accord and 2002 Ford Ranger. The customers said they saw the cars on Craigslist.
“The dealership’s representative stated at first it wasn’t a big deal, but then they learned that some of the customers were actually being asked to place deposits on the vehicles belonging to the dealership,” police spokesman Cpl. Ed Ritter said via email. “When the listed telephone number is called, a male by the name of Jeff answers the telephone and attempts to sell the cars and obtain deposit money from the interested buyers.”
On Aug. 4 and 5, police were contacted by three victims who said they all met Manders at the Honda dealership on Aug. 2 and gave him a total of $3,600 in deposits.
Each met with the man, gave him a deposit on the car and completed a phony bill of sale, on which the name of the dealership’s sales manager was forged.
“Each of the victims was supposed to meet Jeff back at a later time to pay the rest of the money and take possession of the car; Jeff obviously never returned,” Ritter said.
Police have obtained warrants for Jeff Manders for three counts each of theft by deception and forgery. He also is wanted in DeKalb County on a U.S. Marshall’s Service warrant for probation violations.
“Attempts have been made to locate Mr. Manders at his Barrow County home, but attempts have been unsuccessful,” Ritter said.
Manders drives a dark-gray 2006 Mazda Tribute with deer antlers across the back windshield and the initials KMA in the middle. Police say he has a girlfriend in Rome, and may travel back and forth between Barrow and Floyd counties.
If you have any information on this case, contact Sgt. Conlon with the GCPD Motor Vehicle Theft Unit at 770-513-5354.

Update (4:00 p.m.): The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia has released official comments on the sentencing of thirteen people involved in a scheme that saw law enforcement officers in the Atlanta provide protection for drug gangs and drug cartels.
“This case sent shock waves through Georgia law enforcement offices, both local and federal,” said United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates. “Certainly, these departments are filled with dedicated officers who literally risk their lives every day to make our communities safe. But this case revealed a troubling number of officers from a variety of law enforcement agencies who betrayed their oaths to protect and serve, taking cash from the very criminals they should have been arresting.”
J. Britt Johnson, Special Agent in Charge, FBI Atlanta Field Office, stated: “While the sentences in this extensive law enforcement corruption matter ends the careers of those law enforcement and correctional officers involved, it can serve as an opportunity to those many other law enforcement officers and personnel to re-dedicate themselves to the oaths of office that they took when they accepted the badge. It also serves as a reminder to the public that the FBI remains responsive to such allegations of police misconduct and corruption and will investigate and present for prosecution those involved.”
“The vast majority of law enforcement officers serve the public with honor and distinction,” said Acting Special Agent in Charge Ray Brown of the Atlanta ATF Field Office. “Officers like these unfortunately tarnish the badge of the committed men and women of law enforcement. These individuals will now have to face the consequences for their deplorable actions. ATF will remain on the frontline of preventing violent crime through the dynamic level of law enforcement cooperation with our partners.”
According to prosecutors, an undercover investigation of allegations that Atlanta area police were protecting a local drug gang while in uniform began in August, 2011 following a tip from a cooperating individual who was associated with that gang.
The individual then used three civilians who provided the contact information of police officers who were willing to work with the drug gang to protect their drug deals in exchange for cash payments. These fake deals were recorded with video and audio by an undercover agent. The undercover investigation revealed the following:
-DeKalb County Police Department Officer Dennis Duren accepted $8,800 in exchange for protecting what he believed were four separate cocaine transactions in the Atlanta area between October and November, 2011. Duren was in uniform and carrying a weapon while performing these protection services.
-Another DeKalb police officer, Dorian Williams accepted $18,000 in exchange for protecting what he believed were three separate cocaine transactions between January and February 2013. He also wore his uniform and carried a gun during the deals.
-Stone Mountain Police Department Officer Denoris Carter accepted $23,500 to protect five supposed cocaine transactions in the Atlanta area. During four of the deals, Carter arrived in a patrol car and watched the transactions. During the fifth deal, Carter was on foot and was carrying a firearm.
-Atlanta Police Department Officer Kelvin D. Allen accepted $10,500 in exchange for protection of three separate cocaine transactions between June and August 2012. Allen was in uniform and was carrying a weapon for two of the tree transactions he was paid to protect.
-MARTA Police Department Officer Marquez Holmes accepted $9,000 to protect four supposed cocaine transactions between August and November, 2012. During two deals, Holmes arrived on foot in uniform and armed, and patrolled the area. During the other two deals, Holmes arrived in a MARTA Police cruiser and monitored the transactions.
-Forest Park Police Sergeant Victor Middlebrook accepted $13.800 for protecting four supposed cocaine deals, while he also patrolled during two more deals. During the deals, Middlebrook was dressed in street clothes but was armed.
-Monyette McLaurin, who was formerly employed at the DeKalb County jail but presented himself as an active duty DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputy, accepted $12,00 to protect two supposed cocaine transactions in January, 2013. Duing the deals, McLaurin wore a DeKalb Sheriff’s Office uniform with a badge and gun. Another former jail employee posing as a deputy, Chase Valentine, protected a drug deal on Jan. 17, 2013.
-Gregory Lee Harvey posed as DeKalb County detention officer and protected two supposed cocaine deals in December, 2012. During the deals, Harvey wore a black shirt with “SHERIFF” printed on the back.
-Federal Protection Services contractor Sharon Peters was paid $14,000 for protecting two supposed cocaine transactions. During the deals, Peters parked her car near the deal and observed the proceedings.
-Alexander B. Hill presented himself as a Clayton County Police Department officer and accepted $9,000 for protecting three supposed cocaine deals. During the deals, Hill wore plain clothes but wore a badge during the first deal he protected.
-Non-law enforcement facilitator Jerry B. Mannery, Jr., introduced Carter and Peters to the informant contact, and coordinated ten sham drug deals those officers protected. Between April 2012 and February, 2013, Mannery received $30,000 for his services.
-Non-law enforcement facilitator Elizabeth Coss introduced Holmes and Williams to the informant contact, and coordinated five sham drug deals. For her services, Coss accepted $17,000.
Mannery, the last defendant to be sentenced, will spend the next four years in prison and the following three years on supervised release. Coss was sentenced to six months in prison, six months of house arrest, and five years of supervised release.
The sentences for the officers can be read in the original article.
Original Story (7:00 a.m.): An FBI investigation into Atlanta area police officers who were allegedly protecting drug dealers for a price is coming to a close with guilty pleas in front of a United States District Judge.
Ten former law enforcement officers who served in various departments in Fulton and DeKalb counties will be spending anywhere from one to nine years on the other side of the bars inside a federal prison, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Two civilians have also been sentenced for their roles in liaising between the crooked cops and the drug outfits.
According to the FBI, an informant tipped off the bureau about the possibility that police officers were being paid by drug dealers and drug cartels to protect illegal transactions. Investigators used an informant to begin a sting operation, which lured several dirty cops. Some of the officers even wore their uniforms and drove police vehicles while working for the crooks.
The sentenced former officers are as follows:
-Dennis Duren (DeKalb County Police Department), seven year sentence
-Denoris Carter (Stone Mountain Police Department), three year sentence
-Gregory Harvey (DeKalb County Sheriff Office), nine year sentence
-Monyette McLaurin (DeKalb County jail), six year sentence
-Victor Middlebrook (Forest Park Police Department), seven year sentence
-Alexander Hill (private security officer), five year sentence
-Kelvin Allen (Atlanta Police Department), five year sentence
-Marquez Holmes (MARTA Police), five year sentence
-Sharon Peters (Federal Protective Services), three year sentence
-Chase Valentine (DeKalb County jail), 33 month sentence
Civilian Elizabeth Cross was also sentenced to a year in prison. Jerry Mannery, Jr., another civilian facilitator of the scheme, has pleaded guilty to charges related to his activity and will be sentenced on Wednesday.
Gov. Nathan Deal has declared a state of emergency for 45 counties in north Georgia that are expected to receive the biggest impacts from Pax.
With memories of thousands of vehicles gridlocked for hours on icy metro Atlanta highways fresh in their minds, emergency officials and elected leaders in north Georgia are preparing for Winter Storm Pax. Gov. Nathan Deal, who was criticized for his response to the Jan. 28 storm that paralyzed the metro area and left motorists stranded in vehicles overnight, said in a news release Sunday that he’s put emergency response agencies on alert and began significant preparations. The governor scheduled a news conference for noon Monday to discuss winter storm preparations. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather watch from 7 p.m. Monday through 7 p.m. Tuesday and a winter storm watch from Tuesday evening through Thursday morning for the metro Atlanta area.
Even before the first snowflakes fell, people around Atlanta were planning to work from home and stay off the roads. Jay Ali, 33, a college student, said Monday morning that he planned to mostly stay indoors. He had little confidence that government officials would handle this storm any better than the last.
“New levels of incompetence,” Ali said, describing the state and regional response to the last storm that left motorists stranded in their cars for hours, sometimes overnight. “Unforeseen levels of incompetence.”
Ali said part of the problem is that Southern cities do not have as many snow plows, sanders and spreaders as Northern cities.
“I don’t think they have the infrastructure to protect themselves if a storm gets really bad,” he said.

I guess that is why GA Power has above ground wires…for those icy moments, and why they think nuclear reactors are the best investment for the future of the state… REMEMBER FUKISHIMA!!!
November 15, 2013
Georgia Power came with their tree butchers, while having actual knowledge that we had filed suit against Georgia Power to prevent their visit with their Asplundh tree butchers.
They did not care. They told the OFF-DUTY DeKalb County Police Officers, who refused to give their names or badge numbers to us, that they have a permit to butcher out trees. A Permit? What kind of funking bullshit is that? A Permit to kill trees. hhuummm. Our attorney was at the Courthouse all morning and afternoon attempting to get a Judge to sign a TRO/Injunction to stop the crime that happened. Apparently, did not do any good for him to spend his precious time there. I don’t know who the judge we have is, but we are most disappointed.
These assholes crossed over a granite wall and chainlink fence, in their fucking bucket, from their fucking bucket truck to come 40-50 feet onto our property and destroy our trees. A couple of weeks before they came, they put a brochure on our gate saying that they would be here in a couple of weeks. That changed, and they came within a week, cause they found out that we were attempting to stop their destruction. Anyway…The Brochure that they put out, show the wrong ways to cut a tree, ways that cutting the trees that will kill the trees. That is exactly the way they cut our trees. I will get the pix of the cutting up soon. They take 20-40 year old trees, cut them off to 6-15 feet tall and cut all the limbs off the trees. If not, they cut all the limbs off of one side to create what is known as the hurricane effect. That way, when the winds are very strong, it is like a sail, and blows over onto your house. Very dangerous.
Georgia Power claimed to have an easement, but thorough title searches reveal that is a fucking lie. Ga Power supervisor a few years ago, came out to be a smart-ass and had the original Georgia Power Railway/Electric Pole map from 1933. The map clearly shows the poles and lines crossing the street BEFORE our property. They put their pole 40 feet into my neighbors front yard when the property was rental property, and ran their lines over our property, then down to the pole on the corner. In a criminal hearing I had yanked them into a few years ago, they swore that the pole has not moved since 1941-42, that the very same pole has been there for that long. They are full of shit, and the judge was full of shit to believe them. Wooden Power line poles don’t last no fucking 60-70 years. They last 30 years, if things work out right, and 30 years makes an old pole.
The the off-duty police would not even let James walk back onto our property. He had to walk 2 houses down, jump all the fences between the properties, yes, we all have fences, and ours is 8-10 feet tall with three strands of barbed wire atop, to keep our dogs in our yard. James is 100 disabled, with mobility disabilities. What kind of fucking cops do we have nowadays?
James and I have always heavily supported our local Police Dept. I am so disappointed and pissed off, I could scream. It took me all the way until today, before I could write this, I was so mad.
It ain’t over. Not by a long shot. They would not give names or badge numbers, but we have pictures of them, and I will do a FOIA request to get the rest, and find out the lies GA Power told this time, to get body guards to accompany them. I will let yall know what I find out.
US BANK ADMITS, IN WRITING FROM THEIR CORPORATE OFFICE, THAT THE BORROWER IS A PARTY TO AN MBS TRANSACTION; THAT SECURITIZATION TRUSTEES ARE NOT INVOLVED IN THE FORECLOSURE PROCESS; HAVE NO ADVANCE KNOWLEDGE OF WHEN A LOAN HAS DEFAULTED; THAT THE “TRUE BENEFICIAL OWNERS” OF A SECURITIZED MORTGAGE ARE THE INVESTORS IN THE MBS; AND THAT THE GOAL OF A SERVICER IS TO “MAXIMIZE THE RETURN TO INVESTORS” November 6, 2013
We have been provided with a copy of U.S. Bank Global Corporate Trust Services’ “Role of the Corporate Trustee” brochure which makes certain incredible admissions, several of which squarely disprove and nullify the holdings of various courts around the country which have taken the position that the borrower “is not a party to” the securitization and is thus not entitled to discovery or challenges to the mortgage loan transfer process. The brochure accompanied a letter from US Bank to one of our clients which states: “Your account is governed by your loan documents and the Trust’s governing documents”, which admission clearly demonstrates that the borrower’s loan is directly related to documents governing whatever securitized mortgage loan trust the loan has allegedly been transferred to. This brochure proves that Courts which have held to the contrary are wrong on the facts.
The first heading of the brochure is styled “Distinct Party Roles”. The first sentence of this heading states: “Parties involved in a MBS transaction include the borrower, the originator, the servicer and the trustee, each with their own distinct roles, responsibilities and limitations.” MBS is defined at the beginning of the brochure as the sale of “Mortgage Backed Securities in the capital markets”. The fourth page of the brochure also identifies the “Parties to a Mortgage Backed Securities Transaction”, with the first being the “Borrower”, followed by the Investment Bank/Sponsor, the Investor, the Originator, the Servicer, the Trust (referred to “generally as a special purpose entity, such as a Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit (REMIC)”), and the Trustee (stating that “the trustee does not have an economic or beneficial interest in the loans”).
The second page sets forth that U.S. Bank, as Trustee, “does not have any discretion or authority in the foreclosure process.” If this is true, how can U.S. Bank as Trustee be the Plaintiff in judicial foreclosures or the foreclosing party in non-judicial foreclosures if it has “no authority in the foreclosure process”?
The second page also states: “All trustees for MBS transactions, including U.S. Bank, have no advance knowledge of when a mortgage loan has defaulted.” Really? So when, for example, MERS assigns, in 2011, a loan to a 2004 Trust where the loan has been in default since 2008, no MBS “trustee” bank (and note that it says “All” trustees) do not know that a loan coming into the trust is in default? The trust just blindly accepts loans which may or may not be in default without any advanced due diligence? Right. Sure. Of course. LOL.
However, that may be true, because the trustee banks do not want to know, for then they can take advantage of the numerous insurances, credit default swaps, reserve pools, etc. set up to pay the trust when loans are in default, as discussed below.
The same page states that “Any action taken by the servicer must maximize the return on the investment made by the ‘beneficial owners of the trust’ — the investors.” The fourth page of the brochure states that the investors are “the true beneficial owners of the mortgages”, and the third page of the brochure states “Whether the servicer pursues a foreclosure or considers a modification of the loan, the goal is still to maximize the return to investors” (who, again, are the true beneficial owners of the mortgage loans).
This is a critical admission in terms of what happens when a loan is securitized. The borrower initiated a mortgage loan with a regulated mortgage banking institution, which is subject to mortgage banking rules, regulations, and conditions, with the obligation evidenced by the loan documents being one of simple loaning of money and repayment, period. Once a loan is sold off into a securitization, the homeowner is no longer dealing with a regulated mortgage banking institution, but with an unregulated private equity investor which is under no obligation to act in the best interest to maintain the loan relationship, but to “maximize the return”. This, as we know, almost always involves foreclosure and denial of a loan mod, as a foreclosure (a) results in the acquisition of a tangible asset (the property); and (b) permits the trust to take advantage of reserve pools, credit default swaps, first loss reserves, and other insurances to reap even more monies in connection with the claimed “default” (with no right of setoff as to the value of the property against any such insurance claims), and in a situation where the same risk was permitted to be underwritten many times over, as there was no corresponding legislation or regulation which precluded a MBS insurer (such as AIG, MGIC, etc.) from writing a policy on the same risk more than once.
As those of you know who have had Bloomberg reports done on securitized loans, the screens show loans which have been placed into many tranches (we saw one where the same loan was collateralized in 41 separate tranches, each of which corresponded to a different class of MBS), and with each class of MBS having its own insurance, the “trust” could make 41 separate insurance claims AND foreclose on the house as well! Talk about “maximizing return for the investor”! What has happened is that the securitization parties have unilaterally changed the entire nature of the mortgage loan contract without any prior notice to or approval from the borrower.
There is no language in any Note or Mortgage document (DOT, Security Deed, or Mortgage) by which the borrower is put on notice that the entire nature of the mortgage loan contract and the other contracting party may be unilaterally changed from a loan with a regulated mortgage lender to an “investment” contract with a private equity investor. This, in our business, is called “fraud by omission” for purposes of inducing someone to sign a contract, with material nondisclosure of matters which the borrower had to have to make the proper decision as to whether to sign the contract or not.
U.S. Bank has now confirmed, in writing from its own corporate offices in St. Paul, Minnesota, so much of what we have been arguing for years. This brochure should be filed in every securitization case for discovery purposes and opposing summary judgments or motions to dismiss where the securitized trustee “bank” takes the position that “the borrower is not part of the securitization and thus has no standing to question it.” U. S. Bank has confirmed that the borrower is in fact a party to an MBS transaction, period, and that the mortgage loan is in fact governed, in part, by “the Trust’s governing documents”, which are thus absolutely relevant for discovery purposes.
Jeff Barnes, Esq.,
You know, I have been thinking a lot lately about why it is that the Protesters from the 60’s and early 70’s are really pissing me off nowadays. They act like a bunch of sheep or cattle. The whole country is running amock and nobody says a damned thing about it. IT SUX!
I have come to the realization that the Protesters from the 60′-70’s turned into the very thing they were protesting, except even more so. It SUX!
You would have thought that those protesters would have gone on to make a difference, and that there would not be all of this corruption that we deal with on a daily basis. The flower children, peace – love and rock & roll. What the hell happened? Those people forgot everything about why they were protesting in the first place. They forgot “let’s love one another”, forgot about “live and let live”. Hell they are worse than the people they were protesting, because they are hypocrites.
Now, they go sludging along, fuck it if everyone is being foreclosed upon, even if they paid for the property in full. Fuck it if we have WWIII because our president is a fuck up. Fuck it if Russia nukes us. Fuck it if the Japanese have ended life on earth with their meltdown problem. Fuck it if Russia’s Putin now speaks when the United States should have been speaking. Fuck it if the Christians are being slaughtered. Fuck it if there are no jobs. Fuck it if Obamacare causes all of us to be denied healthcare we are entitled to.
Fuck it, Fuck it, fuck it. THIS SUX! This is not who we are. This is not what are forefathers would have accepted. This is not how we got to where we were.
So this week, the Protesters, turned cattle, sheep and couch potatoes are what SUX!!!
Have you been thinking about the Genetically Modified Foods that they are going to trying to make us eat? I already don’t like to eat. Bah Humbug! Try to figure out what you are going to eat every day, and keep fit. They have already taken all of the nutrients out of the food, now they want to fill us up with their damned modified foods that are filled with pesticides and everything bad that you can think of.
What is wrong with this picture? They are not killing us fast enough yet?
Time to take our country back!
For weeks now, I have been hearing about World War III, then this morning who was it, Kerry goes running over to Britain trying to get backing for us to go to war. BULLSHIT! Someone needs to tie that man to a chair in the WhiteHouse and keep him there.
The Administration has already made us look like a bunch of redneck fools. The government is in bed with the terrorists, and staged the gassing of the Syrians, and now, they want to get World War III started and have Putin nuke the piss out of us. Does Obama really think that we are all as stupid as he is? Oh, by the way, Putin is the one that said stupid, not me.
Putin is KGB, and a strong leader. He has already told us what he will do if we go over and join up with the terrorists. I only wonder what Congress is going to tell Obama, and what Obama will do if congress tells him no war.
We have turned into a bunch of weak sheep. Not talking about War, but about how much Bullshit we will put up with in our country. I am truly ashamed that we don’t do shit. We allow them to take more and more of our Rights away and do nothing. They can take every right we have, they can literally piss on us, and I guess that we will just take it. All of the protesters from the 60’s grew up to be that very thing they were protesting, except worse, because they are now, also hypocrites.
The Banksters in this Country have caused the whole world’s economy to de-stabilize and we reward the crooks by giving them our houses. When are you people going to realize that the Bank With the Most Homes in the End Wins!!! Your’ house is not safe, no one’s is. The Banksters will not be happy till they have all our houses.
Deputies in DeKalb County have come under fire after a family posted video online of officers raiding their Ellenwood home.
DeKalb County Sheriff Tom Brown told the AJC that said he understands why his deputies were frustrated when serving a warrant last month, however they will be disciplined for their over-aggressive actions and abusive language.
Police were there to arrest the mother of the home’s children, Natania Griffin, on a civil warrant. The warrant said Griffin failed to pay a $1,000 fee. She has since paid the fee, but the family doesn’t understand why a civil fee would warrant such aggressive behavior from police.
In the video, officers can be heard hurling obscenities at the family and threatening a man that he’s “going to tase the sh*t outta you!”
WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT
9:16 am, April 20th, 2011
Former DeKalb County Superior Court Clerk Linda Carter has sued the woman who now holds that title, Debra DeBerry, alleging that DeBerry tricked her into resigning from the job.
Carter sued DeBerry in her official capacity and individually, and seeks unspecified damages. Carter also sued Gov. Nathan Deal, seeking a writ of mandamus to remove DeBerry from office and to compel official recognition of Carter’s “status as the rightful elected Clerk.” The complaint alleges that Deal accepted the letter of resignation without knowing it was “null and void.”
Carter is represented by A. Lee Parks and James E. Radford Jr. of Parks, Chesin & Walbert. The suit, filed in DeKalb Superior Court, does not list counsel for DeBerry.
DeBerry’s chief deputy clerk, Rick Setser, who also serves as her public information officer, said the county attorney had advised both him and DeBerry not to comment.
“It’s unfortunate,” he said. “I’ve spoken to Ms. DeBerry, and she is eager to clear her name.”
Parks, in an earlier conversation with the Daily Report, said Carter suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and would not have left willingly, as she was two years shy of vesting in her pension and medical benefits. The complaint alleges that on the afternoon of March 24, Deputy Clerk Lisa Oakley—who is not a defendant in the suit—“acting on instructions from DeBerry” and with knowledge that “Carter was suffering from a temporary episode of dementia,” asked her to sign a letter of resignation.
“The letter was presented to Carter as a routine business document … its contents were obscured from Carter’s view. Oakley, acting on DeBerry’s instructions, did not inform Carter that she was being asked to sign a letter of resignation. … Oakley, acting on DeBerry’s instructions, and knowing that Carter did not know or understand the document’s content … indicated some urgency in having Carter sign the document.”
Oakley was not immediately available for comment.
The complaint alleges that on the evening that Carter signed her resignation letter, her husband, John Carter, came to pick her up from work and Oakley escorted her to the car. Oakley told Carter’s husband that “DeBerry had ordered that Oakley have Carter sign a letter of resignation.”
Also, allegedly on DeBerry’s instructions, Oakley said that Chief Judge Mark Anthony Scott “had ordered the Sheriff of DeKalb County, Georgia, to forcibly remove Carter from office.”
Scott said he did not even learn about Carter’s resignation until after it had been tendered and that he neither attempted to remove Carter from office nor ordered the sheriff to do so. He said he did not even have that authority. “I read those allegations. I do not know where they come from,” he said.
According to the complaint, when Carter’s husband called Setser, the chief deputy clerk, to discuss the circumstances of the resignation, Setser allegedly said he and DeBerry jointly created the letter and agreed to have Carter sign it “to avoid media inquiries into Carter’s medical condition.”
The case, Carter v. DeBerry, 11cv4584, has been assigned to DeKalb Superior Judge Daniel R. Coursey Jr.
You wanna know what really SUX?
DeKalb County, and Georgia as a whole will never “Get It” see Ga Supreme Court Ruling on the “You” case…
Glaski Decision in California Appellate Court Turns the Corner on “Getting It”
Posted on August 2, 2013 by Neil Garfield @:
On the other hand we should not assume that they have arrived nor that this decision will have pervasive effects throughout California or elsewhere in the United States or other countries.
J.P. Morgan did suffer a crushing defeat in this decision. And the borrower definitely receive the benefits of a judicial decision that will allow the borrower to sue for wrongful foreclosure including equitable and legal relief which in plain language means reversing the foreclosure and getting damages. Probably one of the most damaging conclusions by the appellate court is that an examination of whether the loan ever made it into the asset pool is proper in determining the proper party to initiate a foreclosure or to offer a credit bid at a foreclosure auction. The court said that alleged transfers into the trust after the cutoff date are void under New York State law which is the law that governs the common-law trusts created by the banks as part of the fraudulent securitization scheme.
Before you give them a standing ovation remember that it is possible for additional documentation to be created, fabricated and forged showing that despite the apparent violation of the cutoff date, the trustee has accepted the loan into the trust. This will most likely be a lie. I don’t think there is any entity acting as trustee of a trust that doesn’t know that it is under intense scrutiny and doesn’t want to be subject to liability that could amount to trillions of dollars advanced by investors with the purchase of bogus mortgage-backed bonds that were presumably managed by the trustee but in reality not managed at all because the bonds were worthless. This gave the banks the opportunity to claim that they owned the bonds and therefore had an insurable interest which gave rise to the whole problem with AIG and AMBAC and other insurers or parties who had guaranteed the bond, the loan or any loss (credit default swaps).
The fact that the loan in this case was definitely securitized is also interesting. Of course Washington Mutual was stating to everyone that it was not involved in the securitization of mortgage loans when in fact nearly all of the loans originated became subject to claims of securitization. This case explains why I never say that the loan was securitized or that the loan was in any particular trust, to wit: I don’t believe that a funded trust exists with the ability to purchase loans and therefore I don’t believe the loans are in any of the asset pools. So when people ask me how they can prove which trust their loan is actually in, I reply that they are asking the wrong question.
What is being played out here in this case and hundreds of thousands of other cases is a representation by the foreclosing entity that the trust owns the loan when in fact it never owned the loan nor could it because the money that was advanced by investors was never deposited into the trust. We have the same banks representing to regulatory authorities and insurers that it is the bank and not the trust that owns the loan even though the bank merely made the loan using money advanced by investors who believed that they were buying mortgage-backed bonds. The truth is they were merely making a deposit into an account maintained by the investment bank. The resulting transactions do not qualify for exemption as securities or insurance under the 1998 law. Nor do they qualify for REMIC treatment under the Internal Revenue Code.
In other words if you take a close look and actually follow the path of the money and the path of the paper you will find that despite the pronouncements from the Department of Justice and other agencies, this is a simple fraud case using a Ponzi model. The hallmark of a Ponzi model is that it collapses as soon as the investors stop buying the bogus securities. If the government cares to do so it can freely prosecute the individuals and companies involved without any air of exemption under the 1998 law because none of the parties followed the securitization path presumed by the 1998 law. So we are back to this, to wit: a security is a security and subject to SEC regulations and insurance is an insurance contract subject to insurance regulators, and fraud is fraud subject to recovery of restitution, compensatory damages, punitive damages, treble damages etc.
You should remember when reading this decision that the appellate court was not ruling in favor of the borrower granting the substantive relief the borrower was seeking. The appellate court merely reversed the trial court decision to dismiss the borrower’s claims. That only means that the borrower now as an opportunity to prove the elements of quiet title, wrongful foreclosure, slander of title, cancellation of instruments and relief under California’s version of unfair business practices. But the devil is in the details and proving the case requires aggressive discovery and aggressive preparation for trial. It is highly probable that the case will settle. The bank will probably be willing to pay almost any amount of money to avoid a judgment setting forth the elements of a wrongful foreclosure and how the bank violated the law.
The Bank will attempt to avoid any final order that undermines the value of loans that are subject to claims of securitization, because those loans supposedly support the value of the bogus mortgage-backed bonds sold to investors. Any such final order would also undermine the balance sheet of J.P. Morgan and any other major bank carrying the mortgage bonds as assets on their balance sheet. If those assets are diminished, then the bank is not as well funded as it has been reporting. In fact, those assets might well vanish completely from the balance sheet of those banks, causing the banks to be seized by the FDIC and broken up into smaller pieces for regional and community banks to pick up. Hence this decision represents a risk factor that could eliminate the legal fiction created by smoke and mirrors from Wall Street banks, to wit: it is not the borrowers who are deadbeats, it is the banks who are broke and whose management has run off with billions and perhaps trillions of dollars that should be in the United States economy. The absence of that money lies at the root of our unemployment and low economic activity.
This Glaski case has many of the elements that we have been discussing for years. Fabricated documents, forgeries, perjury, false affidavits and no money trail to backup the story painted by the fabricated documents. And of course it has our old friend Washington Mutual Bank And the supposed take over by Chase Bank that never actually happened.
And it involves the issue of assignments and the fact that the assignment is not the transaction itself but only a report of a transaction. If the borrower proves that the transaction reported in the assignment or other instrument of conveyance never occurred, or if the borrower is successful in shifting the burden of proof to the bank to show that it did occur, the assignment will have no value whatsoever unless the transaction is present, to wit: that someone actually purchased the loan through the payment of money or other valuable consideration that was received by a party who actually owned the loan.
Thus even if Chase Bank were able to show that it entered into a transaction in which the loans were transferred (something we can find no evidence of which the FDIC receiver says never occurred) that would only be the equivalent of a quit claim deed, to wit: whoever received the consideration for the transfer of the loans was merely conveying any interest they had even if they had no interest at all. Hence the transactions by which Washington Mutual allegedly came to be the owner of the loan must be examined in the same way as the transaction between the Washington Mutual bankruptcy estate and chase bank.
You should also take note that the decision was published with the admonition that it is “not to be published in the official reports.” this is further indication that the court is concerned about the far-reaching effects of the decision and essentially tells trial judges that they do not have to follow it. So for those who wish to point to this decision and say “game over” we are not there yet. But I do think that we passed the halfway point and we are probably in the fifth or sixth inning of a nine inning game. Translating that to time, I would estimate that it’s going to take another three or four years to clean up this mess and that it might take several decades to clean up the title corruption that was created by the banks.
I am sure that everyone is pretty much familiar with my Post, “How DeKalb County Sux”.
The Atlanta Journal & Constitution Recently Posted the following article.:
DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis has been indicted by a DeKalb grand jury today on charges he illegally pressured contractors into giving him campaign contributions.
The 15-count indictment includes 14 felonies. Among them, four counts of extortion, two counts of theft by taking and several conspiracy charges.
DeKalb District Attorney Robert James, in an afternoon news conference, said Ellis is charged with extortion and other felonies for soliciting campaign contributions under threat. Ellis has turned himself into the DeKalb County Jail and has been released, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has confirmed.
The indictment, as read by James, says Ellis extorted CIBER Inc., a vendor in DeKalb, by threating a local manager. It says Ellis threatened to tell CIBER’s CEO that the local manager, Joanne Wise, delivered poor customer service if she did not agree to a campaign contribution. The indictment said Ellis acted similarly with other vendors and used DeKalb employees to draft lists of contractors doing business with DeKalb for the purpose of extorting them for campaign cash.
Ellis spoke to the media at his home late Tuesday. On the advice of his attorneys, he would not speak to the charges. But he professed his innocence.
“I do want to make one statement emphatically to the good people of DeKalb County that I’ve done nothing wrong as I’ve said from the very beginning. Done nothing wrong and I would never, ever, ever do anything to violate the public trust,” he said.
At least one of Ellis’ colleagues thought the criminal charges put the entire county in a negative light.
“This is a sad day for DeKalb County,” said Commissioner Lee May, who serves alongside Ellis. “While every person is innocent until proven guilty, this ongoing saga has been a distraction and continues to bring unwelcome negative attention to our county and our government.”
For a year, a special grand jury investigated possible corruption in the county water and sewer department contracts and eventually it led to search warrants being executed at Ellis’ home and office and at the home and of attorney Kevin Ross, the CEO’s former campaign manager.
Ross was not indicted Tuesday. None of the companies named in the search warrants on Ellis and Ross seeking campaign records were included in Tuesday’s indictment.
Special grand juror Albert Trujillo, 72, said the grand jury’s investigation led to the office of the CEO. He said he was unsure if he could discuss specifics of the investigation, but he was pleased that the special grand jury’s work was apparently a blue print for the indictment.
Trujillo, a retired as an IT consultant, said he has lived in DeKalb since 1972 and he is saddened by all the negative publicity.
Ellis’ indictment comes just months after Gov. Nathan Deal removed five DeKalb school board members for mismanagement.
“Businesses shy away from a county that’s in disrepair when they have that many problems and they smell bad with all these problems,” he said. “… Why go and put your headquarters in a county which resonates with bad press. It breaks your heart.”
But those close to Ellis still say Tuesday’s indictment doesn’t square with the man they know, who was elected to DeKalb’s top job promising reform.
“I don’t know of any forced campaign contribution that Ellis ever attempted, and I worked in all his campaigns,” said Oliver Brown, a DeKalb political operative. “I’d be shocked (if this is true).”
The criminal charge alone means Ellis can be removed from officce.
DeKalb County Commissioner Jeff Rader said the law requires Gov. Nathan Deal to form an advisory committee headed by Attorney General Sam Olens.
If the committee recommends suspension and the governor implements it, then Commission Chairman Lee May would step in as acting CEO until Ellis either resigns or is cleared or convicted in court. “And that could go on for a long time,” said Rader, who added that Ellis hasn’t been around the administrative offices much since his home was raided by investigators in January.
Should Ellis get suspended, he’ll be the seventh elected official in DeKalb to meet that fate since March. That’s when a federal judge allowed Deal to suspend two-thirds of the county school board over an accreditation agency’s allegations about nepotism, financial mismanagement and other concerns.
Taxpayers such as Robert Richardson are disillusioned.
“Every elected official in DeKalb County seems to be a crook,” said Robertson, a retired Realtor who lives near DeKalb Peachtree Airport. He said he and a lot of his friends voted for Ellis because he looked “polished” and seemed honest. Then, Robertson read about how connected some of Ellis’ campaign supporters were.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported in February that nearly 40 percent — almost $600,000 — of the campaign cash Ellis collected had come from firms that either worked, or wanted to work, for the county.
“You don’t have a chance unless you’re in the shakedown,” Robertson said. “It’s disgraceful.”

Have you looked for ethanol-free gasoline lately?
There are a couple of sites that claim they list every gas station that has any ethanol free gas.
I checked and there was not one listed in DeKalb County anywhere.
DeKalb County and gasoline in DeKalb County Sux!
James and I live in DeKalb County, Georgia. Once upon a time, it was a hell of a place to live. The schools were good, we are not far from downtown Atlanta, if you are brave enough to go down there… and we had Underground Atlanta, the first one, not the joke they have now.
Anyway, DeKalb County, had the best of everything. Memorial Drive was really wild. Six lanes, with a middle turning lane, and businesses packed on both sides of the road for as far as you could imagine. At one point, every bar, that was a bar and did any kind of business was on Memorial Drive. Back when Uncle Tom’s was on Memorial Drive, I was not old enough to go in there at that time, but wow! The parking lot was packed on the weekends, as was every parking lot. I guess that was 40 years ago, 35 at least.
Now, the only things on Memorial Drive are Pawn Shops, liquors stores, run down motels, and DeKalb County Jail, the bigger, better jail.
All of the people that had worked so hard to make DeKalb County, the place to live, and raise your kids, would all be rolling over in their graves right about now. What a disgusting, disgraceful place. Memorial Drive sux, just like the rest of the County does.
Now that we have foreclosure hell, where the Bank With The Most Homes in the End Wins!!! All of the streets have vacant houses, some boarded up, some not. You can ride down any road, and see the homes without anyone living in them. Some streets have more vacant homes, than occupied homes. What kind of screwed up sense does any of this make?
Let’s just make the whole state look like the slums, and maybe the damned banks will quit foreclosing, cause they sure as hell won’t have anyone left that can get a loan to buy a house. Oh yea, what was it that Goldman Sachs said? Only the rich should own houses anyway. Yea, that was it. Goldman Sachs can bite me!!! And his mama!!!
When is the rest of America going to get pissed off about all this? Never? I have read article after article where everyone is waiting to see when the rest of America is going to get it, and get made as hell too. I guess never. We have become soft, and lazy, we are becoming sheep, wanting to be taken care of, and not worry about anything ourselves, is that it?
That is not who we are! That is not who we came from! We are the rebellious, what the hell would our forefathers say? They would call us a bunch of weenies, and be pissed off for all the fighting they did for us, and for what??? To let the damned banks own our asses, and steal our homes, and throw us out on the streets???
I have lived in DeKalb County, Georgia all of my life, except for seven years, I lived in Gwinnett County.
When I was growing up, DeKalb County, was the place to live. We had the best schools, the best neighborhoods, we had Memorial Drive, and hot-rods.
There had been several key people that built the County up to where it was. The worked long and hard to make DeKalb County just enough better than the other counties, ya know what I mean?
Anyway, I have become ashamed and embarrassed to be from DeKalb County.
Now all one can say about DeKalb County, is DEKALB COUNTY SUX!!!
