"The sheriff's position is that he's not guilty," Crowe said. "He's committed no crime."

He's a sheriff.  In Georgia.  The man is a walking talking crime scene by definition.

From a link in the article:  "You know how sheriffs are in Georgia - they have immense authority.  Their only check is the voters and the courts."

Not the Law.  Not Morals.  Not their Christian God.

This is why sheriffs shouldn't be elected.  They don't even need to know the law to be elected.

Shouldn't be a problem if he gets a little legal frisking then, since he did nothing wrong. Just like 99% of the kids he had frisked, right?

Posted the wrong link - should've been Wikipedia, not his memorial.

Seriously, it was like an amateur production of "Copland", culminating in this guy's front yard. It was an embarrassment for Georgia.

Did you not read the article?  He did not do any of the touching, he just likes to watch.

And he doesn't need an attorney, he can get himself off.

Ah, thank you.  I thought this all sounded familiar, but was just as prepared to believe it was another and different incident.. Given all the ridiculous nonsense being carried on these days.

It's easier to vote a sheriff out than to fire a cop.

PreMortem: Since when do you need a warrant to frisk?


You need suspicion that a specific person has committed a crime.

But frisking the whole school with no reasonable suspicion reeks of a "general warrant" where you search someone for evidence of any wrong doing, despite no evidence or real suspicion of wrongdoing.

How do you have a "no notice" frisk of 900 H.S. kids and not find ANYTHING?
No drugs?
No weapons?

Not my H.S. certainly.

If the school collaborated in any way, the principal should be sued and fired.

True but at this point everyone knows what they have singed up for when they buy a plane ticket. Since 9/11 airports have been exempted from respecting the basic rights people are supposed to have in America.

It was around ~800 students from all grades, sooooo ..... 600+ minors?

This text is now purple: It's easier to vote a sheriff out than to fire a cop.


Still, there should be some sort of certification process to show they know a minimal about, well, being a cop.  I know some states require that sheriffs get a law enforcement certificate after taking office.  Does Georgia?

What's interesting to me is I believe there were a total of 7 charges filed against 3 law enforcement officers. And not one single sexual assault, molestation...

I think the Sheriff knows where the county's bodies are buried.

Additionally, this isn't the first time these assaults took place.

Please elaborate. I've been frisked 3 times I can think of, and was no warrant of course.

One way ticket.
Round trip ticket.
All the way ticket.

Normally, I say to file 900 charges of violating their Fourth Amendment rights, but being a federal charge, you-know-who would pre-emptively pardon his second sheriff this year.

They're farking teases, is what they are.  When you politely say, "Please don't stop, I'm nearly there," they just look at you like YOU'RE the pervert.  And they're supposed to be professionals.
