  • Sheriff: As thousands mourned cop, Gwinnett official cursed deputies

    Any of you see this? What a bag of sh*t this guy is.

    On Oct. 24, as thousands of local residents and Georgia law enforcement officers lined the streets of Gwinnett County for a funeral procession to honor slain police officer Antwan Toney, one local elected official had no time to wait and confronted deputies to get out of his way, according to witness statements.

    After the deputies working traffic control resisted Gwinnett County Commissioner Tommy Hunter’s attempt to drive in front of the procession in his Chevrolet Silverado, Hunter told them he was a county commissioner and they were blocking “his road,” according to written statements by the lawmen.

    The shocking display by a local official against the backdrop of an entire community mourning a fallen hero disturbed Hall County Sheriff Gerald Couch. It was his deputies, assisting Gwinnett with traffic control during the procession, who stopped Hunter. The sheriff couldn’t believe it when Hunter called to lodge a complaint claiming his men were out of line.

    “The level of disrespect in this situation astounded me,” Couch said. “Especially coming from an elected official. The word public servant came to my mind, and I think that perhaps he has forgotten the meaning of that word and that title.”

    Hunter, for his part, would not answer specific questions about his actions that day. In a text to a reporter, he said: “It was an emotional day.”

    Hunter is the same official who was publicly reprimanded by fellow commissioners last year after a series of offensive Facebook posts.

    You can trust just about every officer you work with to risk their life to save yours, but don't ever leave your lunch in the breakroom refrigerator.

    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      A politician being an arrogant, loud-mouth, egotistical, condescending, jerk? Shocking!

      At least the Sheriff had the stones to stand up for his guys and put this schmuck in his place publicly...good for him.

              It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

                And that’s the problem with some elected officials. They forget who they work for, who placed their votes to put them in office. Like some doctors I’ve seen, they think they are above and better than everyone else.

                At least in the case of public officials they can be voted out of office and there are procedures to have them removed.
