Correct me if I am wrong but the arrest of the Burke County Deputy did not take place during Mayor’s reception.
You’re not wrong but Joe is wrong in than the incident! TAP never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
And some people never let logic and valid information and data get in the way of emotions, feelings, and propaganda.
triedi tried to leave a comment about a troubled part of the county that goes against their narrative about the area, I was logged out before I could post.
Curious, when is Augusta Press going to start archiving some of the obituaries. Maybe when they get 1000. Or another 6 weeks. Come on!
I think you are right: https://theaugustapress.com/burke-county-sergeant-claims-he-was-injured-during-unlawful-rcso-arrest/#:~:text=The%20Burke%20County%20sergeant%20who%20was%20arrested%20while,abuse%20he%20witnessed%20at%20the%20Latin%20Fest%202023.
“Alls because a prosecutor in Savannah” >>> “Alls became a prosecutor in Savannah”???
“THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH” WE NEED A CITIZEN COMMITTEE TO $$$ SUPPORT TAP’S EFFORTS FOR THE TRUTH.
Please, no more committees, commissions, or authorities. Just send TAP a donation for their legal expenses.
I would have no problem with the press if they reported “The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!” But that’s not the world we live in these days.
Roundtree is just like every other Democrat that gets in power. They want to keep their constituents in the dark so they can’t hear the truth. This is why Augusta is becoming a mini Chicago and Atlanta.
There is an easy fix…change the open records law to any government official that subverts the release of an open records request and is found in court to have illegally subverted the law must pay out of their own pockets for lawyers fees, a fine and any fees associated with that request. That would stop this nonsense immediately..
Why does attorney Frails have exclusive contracts with the A/RC? They have a full-time attorney on staff, but whenever the county oversteps the law, Just what does the County full-time attorney do for his paycheck?
Mr. Frails is immediately called in to try to pull their bacon out of the fire. Shouldn’t there be a pool of attorneys to so that.
Headline suggests that Roundtree said that. After reading I see that headline is your opinion.
The left openly supports constitutional amendments when they work in their favor and opposes them when they work against them. It’s just more of the status quo from them.
Thank you for being our eyes and ears because so much is hidden to cover up wrong doing by many of the click.
Keep trying to discover truth.
