sounds like cherokee county's sheriff dave. "that was recently fired" after crossing the line for the "god only knows" how any times. first time he cornered a starbucks worker in the rear of the store, flashing his badge while off duty to residents in his apartment complex, and bullying people while on duty "relaxing" at starbucks" seems that people like THIS are standard hire for police agencies here in GA.
