Is this how Union County law enforcement treats all newcomers?

I have been living here for over a year now. The entire time I have had a police tracting device on my car, and my phone is monitored by young single mothers in their homes - working part time for the sheriff's department. One of the women, who monitors my email works full time as a teller for a local bank. That is standard operating procedure in North Georgia for handling illegal phone taps. I have no criminal record and a perfect driving record. One would think that the local gendarmes would think twice before screwing with someone, who writes for the national media, but apparently they think that no one knows.

What I have found out so far is that local cops made a lot of money during the boom times feeding insider information to local realtors. They would claim to be "investigating" someone for using drugs or being terrorist. Our good friend, George Bush, pushed through laws that make the standards for "investigation" rather vague. When the non-law enforcement personnel actually monitoring the phones and internet got something useful, the cop would then sell the information to a realtor.

One lady told me that she called her mother at 10 o'clock in the morning to tell her that she might sell her house. By 1:30 that afternoon, a prominent local realtor called her up to ask for her listing. Her mother said that she had told NO ONE about her daughter's possible interest in selling her home.

What is even more sad about this corruption, is that it MUCH worse in Fannin County. There, the primary function (and source of income) of the state patrol post is to protect drug dealers living in a compound up in Cherry Log. The attorney who represents the interests of those drug dealers is now Georgia's Speaker of the House! It is a wonder that God has not already destroyed this state with fire and brimstone, like Sodom and Gomorrah!

This is the biggest bunch of BS I have ever read on Topix. You are one weird individual. I seriously doubt you are being monitored but, you should be since you appear as some kind of very serious mental case.

What U smokin'? Some of that whacky weed you found in the mountains when you were homeless and the Feds were killing and beating up people?

Are you related to Linda Pittman? Maybe her kin or husband? Or are you really Mountain Voice having flashbacks?

This stuff sound a whole lot like the stuff Ben Neece used to come into the newspaper office and tell me when I was editor at the NGN. Poor old Ben... he was not really too bad a guy, but just quite a bit off center...

You have got to be the dumbest of the dumb. People who were raised in these parts know that the best way to get their azz handed to them on a platter is talk about someone else's kin. You just go running at the mouth at full speed all the time.

As both of his sons are friends on mine, I really doubt that. Notice, too, that I said Ben was not really a bad guy. He had a lot of good points, unfortunately, he did have mental problems, that is no secret. Anyone who has lived here a while knows that.

While I was at the newspaper, I had to write about Ben's episode at Branan Lodge, where he barracaded himself inside an apartment with his girlfriend as a hostage. The incident ended with Neece being shot and forcably taken into custody. Neither of his sons held anything against me because I had to report on the incident. Instead, they accepted that their father had mental issues and made the best of good times they had left with him.

They may not be your friend tomorrow after you made fun of their father on the internet. Would you want someone telling the world that your father was a kook who had mental problems? I bet not. Sometimes I can't help but feel sorry for you.

You're right, I need to go back to making fun of you, bobby, ACOG and MV... Old Ben couldn't help having problems, but you rejects supposedly are still sane...

Maybe you super-sleuths can go back and create some more reports about all the illegal stuff going on in the county and get the Atlanta TV stations up here to report on it... Oh, that's right, you already goofed that one up!!!

I don't have any reports. Never have and don't plan on making any. I just know how things are as well as many other folks. You fools say no one reads topix but at any time 100 people are on here reading what you fools write trying to make a purse out of a sow's ear. Now anyone with any sense knows that isn't the same 100 people on here all the time. The message gets out and it's a year until election so their is time to get the message home. All you can do is make a fool of yourself about mountains talking and making fun of people and buying tee shirts. Nothing of any substance. Just how much credibility dso you think you have newspaper man.
