Special Grand Jury Document

Oh what fun reading! 
"Based on their testimony, we are forced to conclude that Director Miller and Deputy Chief Lane-Woodward either perjured themselves or are abjectly incompetent".
We vote both!

Read the entire document here. Jump straight to page 14 for the really good stuff.

Tip of the iceberg folks, 10-12 for the admissions of the obvious promotions manipulations and backpay associated with that from resulting civil suits. If you followed these idiots orders don't worry, you'll be listed punitively in suits as well.

Thanks for posting the document so quickly. Just finished reading all 83 pages.

Now all the commissioners are on the news saying how shocked they are??? This blog has been reporting this corruption for years now.

Nothing will happen.... end of story.

Wow!!!! Now it makes sense why Chief Lane-Woodard-Williams was fast tracked to her current position, she was a part of the cover up with Wiz Miller. This is probably the reason that she changed her last name back to Williams so that she could distance herself from this report and this is why Wiz retired so abruptly. I agree with the first post, the Departmental Promotion process among other things is flawed and has been compromised. If you are friends with someone on the board or high in the rank structure you will be given the "superior" responses, if not you are on your own. Chief Alexander, I truly hope and pray that you look at our promotional process and make some changes for the better. In addition, be careful of those that you know have around you in your Command structure.

Chief Alexander please change to promotional process it is truly flawed.

Good God this stinks. Imagine Judge Walker walking out of Recorders Court everyday with 10's of thousands of dollars in here purse.

6:44 has it right, nothing will happen, not even to Chief Williams, not a thing.
I feel bad for the detectives that were doing the job they were sworn to do, who got moved and obviously crapped on so that their investigations would stop and all of what they found would be swept away. The County owns them a big apology.

Corruption was the Walker family business in Dekalb. Will someone now please look into all of the money missing from recorders court?? Walker could have been busted years ago if it wasn't for Don Frank slipping her information about the investigation into her court. Thanks again Vernon Jones, you asshole!

Chief won't be employed here long, fruit of the poisonous tree and what not.

Hey Wiz I guess it kind of SUCKS being you right about now. You always were a piece of SHIT, Hey Mr. DA , dont forget to look at his side kick Dale (mumbles) Holmes. If the Wiz is involved so is Mumbles.

Anonymous said...

The thing that I found interesting in that part of the grad jury report is that it says that Wiz Miller's testimony and Chief William's testimony were contradictory. It seems likely then that one of them was telling the truth. Which one?

To anon 11:51pm
Quit trying to protect one of your buds there. The report did not state that their testimony was contradictory, it said their statements were conflicting, which lead the grand jury to conclude they perjured themselves or were grossly incompetent. Look up the definition of conflicting statements. Nothing in conflicting statements means someone is telling the truth.Nothing!

Anonymous said...

Wiz Miller interfered with an investigation and halted it with no reason. Again, sounds like the weed incident where he and Holmes interfered with an investigation and stopped it with no reason. Hope the house starts to fall and the ones in PD that follow go right along with them.

They figured out Lane-Woodard-Williams is incompetent without even hearing about the time she tried to shoot her husband in the parking lot of headquarters, but her gun jammed.

Anonymous said...

Anon 12:25, it was in the parking lot of Macys at South DeKalb Mall and her gun didn't jam, the safety was on the first 92's.

Get it straight.

You know how stories change over the years. Either way it was her incompetence that saved her that night from a potential murder charge. Sometimes it pays to be incompetent.

How many of those heroic garbage men that just got a raise ran into that school?

Screw you, commissioners! You find this report shocking? If you didn't have your heads up your asses it wouldn't be shocking at all!

They denied or reduced and made it harder for employeed to receive earned raised and failed to honor their pension contribution all the while stuffing their own pockets. We ain't that a big ass supprise and I still want to know what happened to the millions missing from recorders court that noone in authority seems to give a good damn about.

Are Jeffrey and Joy Walker related in any way ( besides general sliminess ) to Eugene Walker?

Anybody looked into the time that Wiz Miller stopped an internal investigation into the demise and soon outsourcing of DeKalb's ambulance service. Lot of those involved in making this outsourcing look profitable are still running around 1950 W. Exchange. Mid stream the Wiz had the investigation stopped and files moved to his office. Later comes out that Ross and Ellis were conspiring to line their pockets with the Rural Metro contract. Need to continue looking into those actions, bet several are nervous now.

As a hard-working professional member of the DeKalb workforce, it sickens me to see what the 'political' class has done to bring disrepute to the County.

From those of us who do the real work that makes things happen for the people, shame on you.

Anonymous said...

It is obvious that this CEO position has been nothing short of corruptive and too much power delegated to one person. The state must step in and remove this form of gov't. and align us with all the other counties in Ga. Then lets see if maybe all the monies that were going in the pockets os a select few might just allow for raises and pension funding. This cannot continue and I applaud the DA for having the courage to investigate and try to prosecute what many have know to exist for years. Hopefully the ones named will begin to squeal on the one's below them that helped carry out the day to day corruption.

I saw alot of DKPD detectives on that GJ witness list. Thank you for pursuing these investigations. All of your hard work will never be known but at least some sun is now shinning on some of the shady areas. A second look at this report shows there are some dedicated police officers in DeKalb who just will not be silenced. I must also commend the DeKalb DA's office for pushing this ugly activity into the sunshine at great political risk.

Anonymous said...

Why don't the DA come up with an annoymous tip-line to report Dekalb County corruption?

I bet in the first month, the DA would take down a whole department and then some. You can't report your corrupt co-worker because the person your reporting him/her to is also corrupt and thats why corruption will never stop in Dekalb County.

The first thing people say when you tell them you work for Dekalb is, Burrell should be ashamed of himself and corruption been going on for years in Dekalb.

THE 911 CALL CENTER OF DEKALB COUNTY AND THE SOUTH PRECINCT are nothing less than a joke in the eyes of many in East n South DeKalb county.

Citizens should not complain for over two years before known crack houses are busted ? What's up with that ?

Citizens should not call DeKalb 911 13 times on a Sunday on racing motorcycles and no DeKalb Police ever show up ?

Gambling dominates the horison all about East n South DeKalb but then it was the DeKalb Police Dept along with the Clayton County Fugitive Squad that became good friends with the bars at Moreland Ave n Cedar Grove Roads. Police Depts for sale for the price of a cheeseburger to overlook illegal gambling, dope n drugs of all kinds and the prostitution that comes with it.

We can only hope that the New Police Officers joining the DeKalb Police Dept will not tolerate the lack of honesty and the lack of Leadership and Charactor that plagues this DPD from 15 years of "free lunches" to overlook serious crimes.

Much of DeKalb's Problems are due to the piss poor Top Leadership at the DPD. AND IT SURE AS HELL WAS NOT ALL TBO'S FAULT ???

Can we expect LaneWoodardWilliams to be fired, demoted, or asked to resign ? Anyone in her division can easily challenge and disciplinary action that comes from her desk.

The DA has opened up all investigations in Dekalb County Government. I want to watch the NEWS and see the building zoning, business licenses and permits employees being handcuffed and sent directly to jail. I want to open a nightclub on Moreland, who's palm need to be greased?

The new chief thinks he is God.....never supervise. He just was appointed like the rest of our leaders.He is just like Bolton but not as vocal to the commissioners.

Anonymous said...

Chief Lane-Woodard-Williams, whatever she is calling herself these days is incompetent. Our new Chief has to know this if there is any credibility to his degrees and his education. She is completely out of her league just as many others are. The best thing is for her to get demoted back to a Capt. or better yet resign. She has terrible public speaking skills and like so many others she tries way to hard to come across intelligent by using words she can't even pronounce let alone know what they mean.

Guys..don't forget the company that's over the probation at Recorders Court. Ellis & Wiz had thier hands into that as well. Making phone calls to key individuals and implying rather strongly that the courts shoudl pick one company over the other.....

Hey Ellis...Wiz.....remember those e-mails and calls????....it's coming back around.

Been here 20+ years....I hope all these assholes got to jail.....

As far as Lane/Williams....she needs to be fired....allowing her to resign and take her pension at her salary so she can live high off the hog after she's gone is a crime within itself......remember....ol Wiz is getting 158k a year in his retirement.

To Anon 339 = The first thing that happens any time a DeKalb Police Car pulls in my drive is that thugs up and down the street stop and quiz me on why the Police were in my drive. Some of the store owners in Gresham Park have asked me not to call the Police for various crimes because thery fear retalitation. Happens every time. I have been cornered by 10th graders with guns before for complaining about a crack house. I live in the middle of Gresham Park, DO YOU NOT HAVE A CLUE ? And as far as me joining the force, I could take my old Marine Squad and clean Gresham Park up in one day !!! hoo Ahhh

Damn!
Everything many of us have been saying for years has finally been reported by this Grand Jury.
Outstanding job by the grand jury members and all who contributed.
I would like to reiterate what has been said by several on this thread.
As a retired professional I am fracken' PISSED off at DeKalb's politicians pissing away a lot of employees hard work, our time and the best part of our lives trying to make DeKalb County a great place to live and work for all.
Best of luck guys and gals! Your going to need it!

Anon 1141: My point I was making is..the 911 Call Center is not a joke! Your ISSUE is with the police department, not 911. The gripes you have are with the response or lack thereof with Police. 911 Operators always get dogged, but we are the FIRST number that is thought of when you need help. You can be sure that if you call 911 you will get a professional operator, if not ask to speak to a supervisor of 911.

Chief

You have a grand jury telling you that one of your assistant chiefs lied to them under oath, and is a complete idiot.

Are you really going to keep her as an assistant chief? Everyone is calling for her to be fired. Ok guys really fired? demote her to MPO and let her handle calls!!

Dekalb County Government should be classified as a "corrupt organization engaging in continuing criminal enterprises" and leadership should be prosecuted under RICO statutes!

We have prosecuted minor league street gang leaders who have wreaked far less havoc than Dekalb bosses have under RICO with resounding success. And that was without the element of a betrayal of public trust and violations of oath.

What's good for the goose....you know the rest!

Knowing this was going on while our hard working first responders were out there putting their lives on the line for this county is very disturbing.
And yet, they (the commissioners) sit in the meetings with the understanding that Public
Safety needs more money. With the understanding this county is hemorrhaging money, they sit and do nothing.
***For DeKalb Citizens***
I've seen these so-called leaders out and about laughing and living it up like nothing's wrong. That's a slap and spit in the face to ALL that honestly WORK and LIVE in DeKalb County. Once the greatest county to work and live.
If this is not a true WAKE UP call to all DeKalb County citizens and employees, you are dead.
Take your county back. Get rid of all the commissioners. Get informed. Elect new ones and continue to hold them accountable.

To D.A. Robert James, Good Job! Now take the gloves off and finish it. Make an example, finish them! It's time!

To the person bitching about the parks...the speeding motorcycles ..etc... we're not the President...we're not Eric Holder... we're not the IRS..... we're uniform officers running from call to call... often without back up because we don't gave enough officers...we have a very limited chase policy....... we also have to obey the Constitution... abide by the laws... and be professional......

Our hands are tied and we're being second guessed by command staff and IA detectives who haven't ridden in a patrol car or responded to a dispatched call for close to a decade or more.... we do more with less every day.

We're frustrated and pissed that we can't do more. Put the blame where it belongs!
