Larry Johnson Seeks Wiz Miller's Termination

We told you this should get fun!

WSB TV Channel 2 is reporting Commissioner Johnson is demanding Wiz Miller be terminated for improper comments about elected officials. Just yesterday Wiz told the AJC he “could care less” about concerns Johnson expressed regarding Miller’s office.

What will Burrell do? In just a few days, the commissioners will vote on the final county budget. Burrell needs every vote he can muster to pass his budget proposal. But on the other hand, the commissioners have banded together and will introduce their on budget. (More on this to come).

What a track record DeKalb County is making for itself. First, Louis Graham was forced out because of his racist tactics. Then acting Chief Marinelli was replaced by the corrupt Terrell Botlon who was terminated. Now we have Wiz Miller with his total disrespect for elected officials just as TeBo.

Save us all the trouble Wiz; resign. Don't put us through another Tebo episode.

Will the madness continue?

I still report to the same precinct, check out the same units and report to the same supervisors.

Nice spot on the evening news, but it changes nothing.

A promotion now means only 5% , the pension contribution eats about 8% of my take home pay, my health benefits cost more....the out of pocket costs are outrageous, and I still haven't seen raises in 4 years.

Same stuff....different day.....different names.

This idot just gave them all they need to get ride of him. Thank god these events are playing in our favor. Miller might be a good guy but his position is a waste of tax payer money.

Listen do you people honestly think that getting rid of Wiz Miller changes anything. It doesn't, because all they will do is replace him with someone else who will probably be more than cozy with the BOC. Be very careful of what you ask for....it's so much easier to deal with a devil you know than one you don't.

They're not going to eliminate the Director's position you fools....they will just find a YES man to fill that void and it could possible make things much worse for us than they already are....

You guys truly are amazing... the term Dumb Mass fits this place very well

Commissioner Larry Johnson....hey you...DO I have your ATTENTION!!

KISS MY EVER LOVIN ASS....!!!

Now I feel much better you freakin cry baby......

CEO Ellis, "your director has hurt my feelings....", I want you to fire him".

Go TO HELL Mr. Johnson....who cares if your feelings are hurt.

What about my feelings, what about my families feelings, ...you sure as hell don't care about the quality of life that my family has had to endure.....so why in the hell should anyone care about yours....

Oh yea, this will be entertaining!
I find this statement the most amusing so far. From the AJC;
"“Tolerating these actions from a high ranking official such as Director Miller would set a bad example for all county employees and harm the working relationship between the commission and all county staff,” Johnson wrote."
To Commissioner Larry Johnson. There is no "working relationship" with DeKalb employees. You don't even understand what the frack we do or why we do them. The relationship is adversarial, the relationship is "give and take", the employees give and the BOC takes. The BOC rules instead of leading by example. The CEO and BOC lays down employee policy that they personally refuse to follow for themselves and staff. You treat rank n' file employees as dirt and refuse to even discuss the issues affecting county employees.
Personally I feel the PS director's position is redundant in light of the lack of direction by Director Miller. If Miller had shown the same initiative in reorganizing DKPD and doing something about crime as actively as he is defending himself and dissing the BOC, I would feel differently.
In remembrance of Chief Marinelli, Haargh! That was a Chief who gave a damn about what was going on. He didn't care about his pension and was trying to improve things within DKPD.
My first meeting with Chief Marinelle was tense and amusing. Luckily I had some friends at DKPD who vouched for me.
Thanks, mates!

Let me see if I understand this correctly. Larry Johnson is asking for Director Miller to resign or be terminated because Director Miller is held to a "Higher Srandard" and his comments were insubordinate??? Oh OK! Well , the Police Department would like Sharon Sutton to resign or be terminated because she was a wanted FELON! I'm assuming that the commissioners are held to a "Higher Standard" as well right??? HOW BOUT SOME CONSISTENCY BOC!!!!!!!

For a second there, I thought you were talking about the relationship of employees to personnel and/or risk management. Those two entities are there to insulate and protect the county from the employees.

Next... why fire him... those caught cheating in the CRCT scandal are "reassigned".... should we expect him to be treated in a different manner.

Larry really? What a cowardly way of trying to push your agenda. Your the next Vernon Jones up and coming.

I am not sure I understand this. Everybody rants about how they wish the Director or the Chief would stand up to the BOC. Now Director Miller tells the arrogant little jack ass, Larry Johnson that he does not care what he thinks. And for this he should be fired?

What message would this send to Chief O’Brien? He damn better keep his mouth shut or he would be the next to be fired. Personally I wish Chief O’Brien would tell a couple of BOC members to go to hell!

I realize that there is a professional way to do things and you can attract more with honey and all of that. But sometimes you just have to call a jack ass a jack ass!

Anon 11:08PM,

Wiz only stood up to one commissioner when that commissioner said Wiz sucked at his job. We want Wiz Miller to stand up to the Little Larry Johnson and the rest of the commissioners on our behalf! No more furloughs! Across the board raise to make up for 4 years of no raises! A return to annual raises! We want him to stand up for us and fight for us! He hasn't done that!

That means Wiz would actually have to show up. You can't speak up for something you don't know anything about.

There is a BOC meeting on Tuesday. We all need to show up in numbers and tell them how we feel. Otherwise they will keep shitting on us day after day. It's time to put some actions behind these words.

The truth be told I did not make the A Band on the Sergeants test so it will be a lot longer for me to ever see any kind of increase in my pay. As a matter of fact I expect if there are layoffs I will probably be looking for a job.
The position of Public Safety Director is a waste of money, why have a Fire Chief/Police Chief. Oh I forgot we have an acting Fire Chief. Has the Wiz even started looking for a replacement? Since he is seldom seen (just like his boss) I suspect not.
From what I can tell all the early out retirement was a farce, since we refilled most of their positions anyhow. I think the only Department that actually reduced manpower was the Police (which did away with the Deputy Chiefs position).
Times are hard all over this great nation of ours, just take a look at the budget the President presented it looked like 23 of the Ga Code Books only blue.

You dont stand up for anyone when you get into a public pissing match. You stay professional, you fight for the things your department needs, you show up to plead your case, and you back up your officers/firefighters/emergency medical services /dispatchers, etc. Say what you will about the Sheriff, but he comes out in public and fights for his department and is people. Miller has a crazy difficult job, but he took it, he gets paid well, and he fell into the same mode of entitlement as leadership before. Where was he during the storm? And I dont see any measurable positive impact he has made. I think he should resign, trust me he'll end up with another high paying job, and he wasn't able/interested to do what the position was intended to do. Lets see if we can get our Chiefs some power to run their own departments for a change.

Commissioneer Larry Johnson is one of the major idiots on the Board of Crooks. His ego has surpassed that of ex-commissioneer Connie Stokes who also had a king-size ego.

Johnson is lucky that he was chosen by his buddy CEO Burrell Ellis. His "Presiding Officer" title has the remaining commission members looking up at him.

Sounds like Johnson and Wiz had a misunderstanding, and because both of them are on their high pedastals which only has room for one, someone has to be eliminated.
The county cannot three big wigs sitting on top of two high points at the same time.

Basically, what a bunch of bullshit. Ego has destroyed so many policitians over the years. We as taxpayers, ought to be happy that these idiots do not take frustrations out on the taxpayer.But in some respects they do, they raise our taxes.....Bastards !!!

I am curious as to why Larry Johnson refers to himself as
'Honorable'.
Let me tell you you slick piece of shit, there is not one county commissioner that deserves the title honorable.
All of you are worthless and the citizens deserves more.
As for Miller yea the job is a waste fire him.

Director Miller was appointed as a safety valve in case Terrell Bolton remained as Chief.

To 8pm, come on fess up. To quote M & M the real Wiz Miller just stood up. Exactly a big waste of money, we do not need this position. To the fans please name one major thing this man has accomplished as p.s.d.

Now that we have effectively removed Miller. Someone should ask BOC tough question of why they retain Morris Williams at $ 137,000 a year to do what. I forgot there is a double standard. Talking about non-essential. Isnt Richard Stogner suppose to do that job. This place stinks. furloughs, layoffs etc. we are done.

Ok some of you post stuff and don’t check your facts. “WHAT YOU THINK IS TRUE AND WHAT ACTUALLY IS ARE OFFTEN TWO DIFFERENT THINGS” now if you think Nic Marinelli was a good acting Chief you are a DAMN FOOL the guy never had a police job in his life and lied on his application “FACT” . Now rest in PEACE Chief Louis Graham, this man made a statement about a white female. He thought he was having a private conversation with another person and it was leaked to the media. Ask yourself how many private conversations have I had that if people recorded them would have had my ass in hot water? Put the rocks down! Yes he made a mistake, but look at this place now we are in worse shape now. And you idiots keep yelling ROCK ON OB! You sound like a bunch of idiots. Ask yourself a few questions, and I admit I like Chief OB. How many people have had jobs held for them until they became qualified? Is moral better now or worse? If you said its better OB you are slowly losing us. How many times has OB gone before the Commissioners to fight you? See that Idiot Teebo at least took his command staff to the board meetings and demanded stuff for us, that’s how we got the damn tour busses. I will take this a step further If Teebo would have left Margarita at home and left the Atlanta folks in Atlanta he would probably still be here. Nothing much has changed. You can say what you want to but the order to reduce the promotional raise to only 5% was introduced under ROCK ON OB! and he did not say one damn word. I know people are going to reply and insult me but before you post do some research and then make a post. I pointed out some good facts brothers and sisters. The fact is we are all getting screwed. It’s time to unite and take this fight to the voters and get them on our side. All this dogging the people of this county out has to stop because if they read this stuff they will not turn one rat’s ass to help you. Let’s unite and fight together

We never see Wiz Miller in a working capacity. However, a person can go to any local restaurant/bar and see the WIZ,Dale Holmes,administrative assistant Latrice Dunton and/or his ex driver (wink wink) Vickie HOgan aka #1 on Captains list (wonder how that happened. This is who the citizens of Dekalb County is payinig 150,000 dollars to per year.
