Finally, the Burrell Ellis crime syndicate comes crashing down. Can we hope for some backroom deals to bring others down with him?

See ya later, convict

Thank you to the jury and DA! Can Burrell cut a deal and snitch? Zoning are you nervous?

Will Burrell get paid next week?

Yeah, what about those 2 years he was on PAID LEAVE while he was GUILTY? Will he have to pay any of that back as restitution? Hope that's part of the sentencing.

Where are all his supporters now? Shamefully in hiding I'm guessing.

Anon at 10:09 has a real good point. The county has paid him two years at his outrageous salary but received nothing in return. He has been found guilty and now should be required to pay the county back for every cent he received after going on paid leave (suspension?). Another question I would like to know the answer to: The DA charges every DKPD officer that goes on trial for committing a crime with a Violation of Oath of Office. Why wasn't Burl Ellis charged with that also. Is it OK for the 1% to violate their oaths?

If Erkle got convicted of corruption then there is mega corruption in dekalb county. Think about it, the head of your company is corrupt and all the others employee coat there pockets the same way. I know you can get your business license and permit for higher price. It's a shame everybody know business license is corrupt and nothing is done about it.

This is a great verdict. I'm glad the system worked. Good to see the Decatur commissioners getting what they deserve.

Wow, next is permitting and the big wigs in planning because this is the money maker for employees.

1. You are living in a fool's paradise if you think that he'll ever have to pay anything back. And I wonder if any officer ever accused of anything was able to keep his pay until he was convicted, or was he "suspended without pay." Only the big boys get their money - and keep it. If they try to make him pay it back, he'll just say that he doesn't have it. They were financing his defense hoping he'd get off.

2. Do any of you realistically believe that he'll actually ever serve any prison time?

3. As far as the "new DeKalb County," to quote Pete Townshend, "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."

Hopefully oh Burrel will squeal like a pig he is to save his own bacon, get the rest of the sorry BOC as well.

Well it's about time. I see that they revoked his bond and he will sit in jail until sentencing on Wed. Seems like they would look at the things he has done while CEO and look into some of the hirings he made. As a former police officer I would say look at the hiring of a public safety directors. Looks like all the Commisioners are falling. To bad the CEO and Commisioners make all departments look bad.

Any guesses to the next appointed Director (if position not eliminated AGAIN), etc.?

It's ashame they didn't clean up the others, former CEO's like Stan Watson and Tom Brown and company.

Poor counsel representation ? Hopefully the message is loud and clear to former D.A. J.Tom Morgan and Atty. Dwight Thomas.

Now its time to join your buddy SIDNEY DORSEY who has had several years of residency. Ole Sidney could teach you a few tricks of the new trade that the GA DOC has devised for you.

Just because you will be getting an appeal bond, doesn't mean that you will prevail. 95% of the time, appeals just delay the final outcome.........Do not pass "go" and off to jail you go. No more CEO job, no more practicing law, and hopefully, no more doing anything with favors and handouts,

So now its time to face reality....you have been a bad boy which means no more ice cream, toys, fancy cars, executive protection, fancy house, kissing the MRS for a while, etc.

What about the pay study that was done? Word has it the county received the results back in May from the company that did the study, and they have not posted the info anywhere.

Who DARE push the crooked ticket quota today or ANY agenda from the top which were all appointed by these corrupt losers. If you blindly followed these gangsters then YOU TOO must now pay the price. Reap the whirlwind...

At least someone finally acted on all the corruption complaints publicly made since way back in the Vernon days. Amazing it took this long. Hope there are many more to come because the corruption pond in DC in well overstocked. The honest ones left long long ago rather than be subject to this obvious corrupt behavior and subsequent orders that always followed.

Bad art was as good as good art. Grammar and spelling were no longer important. To be clean was no better than to be filthy. Good manners were no better than bad. Family life was derided as an outdated bourgeois concept. Criminals deserved as much sympathy as their victims. Many homes and classrooms became disorderly - if there was neither right nor wrong there could be no basis for punishment or reward. Violence and soft pornography became accepted in the media. Thus was sown the wind; and we are now reaping the whirlwind. - Norman Beresford Tebbit

Pretty sure they will never admit that the pay study was worthy. I started Dec 2000 and stopped getting a pay raise like 2006. The thing is they will never admit they were wrong and just say hey we will give you a 1% raise but you can't quit until after July 1. Or you have to pay it back. Soooooo glad I left the county. Way better opportunities even after 14+ years here. I wanted to do 25+ but I just couldn't. Love the police department minus the guy who runs it. Not Conroy! Referring to the non POST officer Director! Joke! Hired by Ellis.

Believe it or not, back in the 1970's, a newly elected Chairman of the County Commission told the DeKalb County Director of Public Safety that, if he, the Director, even had reason to believe the Chairman or any member of his staff had violated the law, he should investigate the hell out of it, and not inform the Chairman until the case had been cleared, one way or another. And, the Director did receive such information, did investigate, and the Chairman and an aide, I think, were charged and convicted, but then prevailed on appeal. Yet, the Chairman never attempted any reprisal, because, after all, the Director and the Police Department had just been doing their jobs.

Then another Chairman/CEO was elected. one who owned a couple of taverns, one of which was in DeKalb County. When the DKPD permits unit did a routine check (just working their way down a list- not targetng)at the tavern in DeKalb, they found that one of the servers or bartenders didn't have a current servers permit. So, they issues a citation.

No big deal, right? Get a permit, pay the fine, and that would be the end of it. But, the server was the son of the tavern's owner, and, like I said, the owner had been elected to the Chairman/CEO position. And, unlike the previous chairman, who had respected the police for doing their jobs, without bias or favor, THIS chairman/CEO told the commander of Vice and Permits that he was going to go after his job, for daring to cite the chairman's son (didn't deny he'd been in violation, mind you).

It seems like things have gone pretty much down hill, ever since.

We now have had two JUST PATHETIC USDA'S IN A ROW !!!

Sally Q. Yates asleep at the wheel for Public Corruption, Child Exploitation and The Heroin Explosion all about. And for doing nothing she is now the Deputy Director of the Justice Dept. Appointments like this are the reason that various US Protective Services are no better than a bunch of Whore Hoppers all about the World bringing embarrassment to their Agency !!!

We where hoping to see Burrell roll on a few people but that did not happen. I guess Ole Andrew Baker was saved by bell.

You can't blame Yates, she did what she was told and she was rewarded for it. The government is more worried about the police and has taken police departments across the country to task and have put them under restrictive consent decrees. If the government was worried about corruption, they would have brought people to trial that worked at the IRS. Most of the decrees now require officers to write a report every time they pull their gun out, they have to write reports detailing why they stopped a citizen (traffic or pedestrian) as to their suspicion/probable cause for the stop, use of force is heavily scrutinized. Now the government is reporting that violent crime is surging upward, I wonder why? Police departments across the country are losing officers to the private sector, recruiting and hiring are dismal, no one wants to be a cop anymore. The liberal media and government bash the cops any chance they can get. For the media, it sells advertising and gives them ratings. For the government, it appeals to their liberal base, will get votes.

The day of reckoning HAS ARRIVED. People don't want to join the police and those in policing are leaving the job.Our situation isn't unique. Cops across the country are not getting much needed pay incentives to stay in the job, they are paying higher pension and insurance costs and their local media bashes them every chance they get.The country has changed! Depending on how you think, it maybe for the better or for the worse.Who's going to police when all the police are gone? The Feds? They know nothing about policing. They think that when they walk into a room and announce what federal agency they work for, all time stands still. Makes me wonder, if the feds really took over policing how many agent involved shootings there would be? I bet a lot. More than there are officer shootings. The reason is that cops that police an urban environment learn what to expect on each and every call, danger and the unexpected. They know that their mere presence on a situation doesn't automatically diffuse the emotions. The feds they don't know this.Yet, they will tell you how to run your department.

The sad and pathetic truth about this PD is if any of the business owners in this case had made a report of extortion against the CEO (just as rape j2 made on previous one) it would have been swept under the rug by the numerous thugs still giving orders in this dump.
