  1. It is amazing that Richmond county can not prosecute anyone because these cases were handed to Mr. Williams from the past DA. When you run for office and win you have to be expected to carry on with cases in the past! Maybe this is part of the current DA’s rehab for people suspected of crimes, just let them go!

  2. Part of pre-election discovery and media coverage for the last DA election should have been the revelation of William’s past work as a defense attorney and the huge impact it would have on pending prosecutions should he be elected. Not that it would have impacted voters who vote based on gender, race, and personal influence with their preferred candidate.

  3. These gangs are infiltrating many neighborhoods in Richmond county. These gangs are impacting surrounding counties. They are recruiting members and establishing drug dealing connections within these outer counties.
    An AG appointed prosecutor needs to happen ASAP.
    These gang cases need to be expedited through the court system and the Governor needs to move forward with his state wide gang task force. It needs to start with Richmond county and the CSRA.
