Gwen Keyes Fleming, District Attorney

Not long ago we posted that we have a couple of irons in the fire. One of those irons are nearly ready.

We just wonder how long it will take Ms. District Attorney to have our blog blocked by the county IT people.

If the county wanted to block the site, they would have done so long ago under the Jones admin. So far I have seen no signs of the county blocking sites due to political content. The BOC and the judges like to read what the opposition is saying and block very little except the common sense stuff like porn and stuff like that.
Gwen can't even run an investigation much less block a web site critical of her abilities.

I agree with LoFlyer. I don't think Gwen has that kind of power. She has no jurisdiction over people outside of the DA's office.

Blocking the blog will just piss us off to do more...I'd just print off each new post and stick up on the wall in the mail room. :)

Why block the site... my understanding of the new internet policy is that most no longer have access to the internet at work. It was a money issue.

For the most part, those who have access are on the "team"..ie, they're in an appointed position or beholden to those in charge to remain where they are currently assiged.

For PD, its sgt's and above....rank and file no longer have it in an effort to save money.

Now when they switch over to the air cards in the vehicles, it would be nice to atleast have limited access to the internet: weather sites that provide real time radar, maps like google map or mapquest, and a yellow pages site to verify addresses when the incident took place somewhere other than where it is reported.

Besides, do you really think she is prepared to fight your first amendment rights...I hardly think so!!!

I am a parent in dekalb. How can I get the GBI in to investigate a Detective within the dekalb county school system that submitted false information as evidence in the course of an investigation. His actions were part of a conspiracy to cover the wrong doings of the principal.

Have you tried calling the GBI?

They are in the phone book under "G."

A good method is to call as much as you can until you get action...if all else fails. Seek the media

To the parent in DeKalb

You might get better results calling the Georgia Peace Officers Standards and Training Council (POST) and speaking to someone in investigations.

No one else is suspicious of the parent's claim? Red flags always pop up for me when I hear the word "conspiracy."

In theory, you should be able to go to DeKalb Schools Internal Affairs. But the guy in charge is State Senator Ron Ramsey (two jobs). I haven't heard that he is much help. But you can try.

Contact the newsroom at the Exceptional Radio Network, they will be more than happy to look into it. They are already cracking some eggs in Fulton. E-mail them at dh@exceptionalradio.com

I think this blog gets enough DKPD visitors to compile a very detailed and thorough list of Gwen's failures as a District Attorney to guarantee she loses the next election.

Why are cases over 2 years old just now going before the Grand Jury?? Why are some cases over 2 years old still in limbo??

There are a number of reasons cases haven't been presented to the GJ within 2 years. First, it depends on the type of case. Second, is the defendant out on bond. Third, is there even enough evidence to go forward on the case. What some of you fail to realize, the DA's Office doesn't just get DKPD cases. They get ALL of the city cases and Zone 6. There are only so many investigators up there and trying to stay caught up with the amount of cases that come in each week is impossible. They will NEVER be caught up no matter if you doubled the size of their office. They have interns helping out and still cant move them fast enough.
It is a never ending cycle!!!!!

When the defendant doesn't make bond, those cases have to be presented to the GJ within 90 days, otherwise, he is entitled to a bond. So, those cases must be worked first which means the other ones wait. Once the defendant does have a bond, they get to them as fast as they can. Don't forget, cases still come in no matter what.

This is why so many cases get dumped. Its hit or miss. If its a great case without requiring alot of effort, it will get handled accordingly. When detectives send shit cases to the DA's office, nobody has the time to fix it, because the time isn't there!!! So, if the case is important, then show some pride in your work and do it right. Stop the blaming!!!!

Whhhaaaahhh!! Our work load is too high!!! Whhhhaaaaah!!! Maybe if you guys didn't cut such pathetic deals with perps, you wouldn't have to keep dealing with the same ones over and over again!!

That excuse is lame. As someone else pointed out, Cobb county's ADA's have MORE cases to handle per ADA, but they manage to send more people to prison than DeKalb does every month AND they have a lower crime rate!! Funny how that works out, isn't it???
