The frightening thing is the computer error that led to the SWAT team being called in the first place. It’s called the Georgia Crime Information Center. The warrant against Mr. Burton was four years old and had been dropped. Yet the police were not informed of this. Why? It was put in the computer, why wasn’t it taken out when the warrant was dropped? My question is, how many other warrants are still in this piece of “modern technology?”
All of the officers involved in this fiasco should step down. Everyone from Capt. John Blalock to Officer Hovers and all SWAT team members. Their resignations should be submitted at once. The district attorney should seek criminal charges against every person involved in this modern day lynching. But the DA is part of the Gang In Blue and sadly, nothing will ever come of it.
I pray for Mr. Burton every day and hope he makes a full recovery. I then hope he gets a very good attorney and winds up owning Floyd County. I know several who would be glad to represent him.
He must have felt like a caged animal in his attic while the Gang in Blue was storm-trooping through his home.
