Ghost of sheriff past

Victor Hill may have been voted out as sheriff in 2008, but his actions still affect our county, unfortunately.

Recently, Anthony J. McMichael, senior pastor of Jonesboro’s Mt. Nebo Baptist Church was charged with impersonating an officer by flashing a badge allegedly provided to him by Hill, in order to beat a Douglas county speeding ticket. This is the same badge McMichael denied having when the Clayton County Sheriff’s Department asked him to return it earlier this year, according to the present sheriff.

Incredulously, McMichael stated via ajc.com that, “It was the vindictive spirit of Clayton County to go after any association with Victor Hill.” Perhaps McMichael should have been more careful who he associated with given Hill’s track record during his lone term as sheriff.

Current sheriff’s employee badges have been replaced (thanks to Sheriff Kem Kimbrough) so that Clayton residents don’t have to wonder or worry about who they’re dealing with if ever approached by law enforcement. The badges distributed by Hill to his friends have six points. Legitimate sheriff’s badges now have seven points and a badge number, as pictured on the CCSD Web site.

“The public has a right to know who is a law enforcement officer or not, and to trust that when presented a badge, they are really dealing with a law enforcement officer,” says Kimbrough. “That’s why it is a crime to present a badge without authority to do so, and we will uphold and enforce that law – whether they are our badges or another agencies.”

Well, if you still have a Victor Hill issued badge … save it for Halloween 2010 and dress up as a former sheriff’s deputy.  Although you probably won’t get away with using it then, either.

McMichael could be fined up to $1,000 along with a one- to five- year prison stint, a department spokesman said.  Your thoughts? Will Clayton ever be done with Hill?

“Forum leadership worked overtime to delete posts that were inappropriate but the hate-based individuals persisted at an alarming rate and without personal shame.”

If you are refering to Sam Spade…What did he say that was racial? Copy and paste is such an easy tool. Enlighten please.

Why are the so called advocates for Clayton afraid to address why Supt. Heatley didn’t respond to an Open Records request to disclose how much Clayton schools have paid Glen Brock?

Are we not allowed to question why Heatley did not comply with the law, just because he’s a former military man?

I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE WHO TRASH “SHERIFF” HILL ON THE COMPUTER WOULD ACTUALLY HAVE HAD THE GUTS TO SAY THE SAME TO HIS FACE? HMMM,…NONE! NOT 1! THE MAIN PEOPLE TRASHING THE FORMER SHERIFF ARE THE ONES WHO GOT THEIR FEELINGS HURT FOR NOT DOING THEIR JOB, …BOTTOM LINE! OR THE ONES WHO TOOK LEAVE BECAUSE THEY COULDN’T “TAKE IT”. CUT YOUR LOSSES AND MOVE ON! CLICHE AS IT IS, THERES A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN, MOVE ON ALREADY!

What happened to the boot is a disgrace! It was once a forum for open discussion. All was invited for discussion because I personally thought it was a forum to better CC. Now that it has turned into the opposite, you idiots who support the new site will find yourself wanting the original boot back next election time. However, it will be to late then. Now, your site is nothing more than news-daily and AJC reporting. I must say though, I do visit the site (not reguarly) and it’s not informative and quite boring. Get real with the issues at hand because CC is still not out of political harms way by no means.

Overtime you can thank your good friend Double Action for what happened to the boot. He did not seem to think that blacks should feel welcome on there so insisted on posting demeaning comments about them . Plus he is so gun crazy it is frightening. With the racist comments and gun posts any sane black would twice about the boot. Because he made us sound like we wore white sheets and burned crosses as a hobby. That is not who we wanted to be. The name has changed but the will to fight for the betterment of Clayton County is still there. We are slowly getting back up to speed and back in fighting trim. At the moment there has not been anything that polarizes us as much as our former sheriff, former District Attorney and her husband. But this being Clayton County I am sure there will be soon.

I REALLY DO NOT get your point Nemesis. You claim that DA was posting racist comments but I have not yet seen one shred of evidence, only certain forum members posting their own opinions. I was a member before the boot was started when news-daily removed it’s forum and a member of the boot. You sit there behind your computer and call him a racist…Well…I CALL YOU OUT! YOUR A HATER and apparently you speak on the behalf of everyone else on your new flunky site. You did make that statement DA is referring to, right? You can post what’s going in CC but if you do not discuss the reality of politics in CC, then you and your fellows will face another day of reckoning. By the way, I was on the boot for a very long time and I know DA was not a racist. He just told it like it was in a county that has experienced demographic change. My advice to you is..Change the website to “The Clayton Reader” because that’s all it is!

While I was a member on The Boot, I had one member who challenged to a debate. One of questions I asked of him was “Many Black Elected Officials in State Supported His right to self defense, under The Second Amendment and State Laws Of Georgia.He could not answer; however I did provide him with answer; State Attorney General Thubert Baker.

Lil Vic gave out more than 120 Deputy badges to officials, preachers, former employees, friends and his homies. That is the known number they can officially determine – may be more that were not kept track of. One of them is at Lee Scott’s house. Please – Sheriff Kimbrough – go visit LEE SCOTT and relinquish him of the Deputy badge Victor gave him. He bragged to anyone and everyone, especially threatening those who crossed him, about this fact and that this allowed him to carry a firearm in that capacity. This while he also threatened people with arrest because his wife was D. A. and he had Lil Vic in his pocket.

Responce to Tom: I agree with you 100%. The last 2 years of my law enforcement career before I retired in 2007, I observed 1st hand how Hill operated. He was a disgrace to the badge and office he was holding. It was all about “POWER” and how he wanted to control every one and every thing in Clayton County. Hill has betrayed the good citizens of Clayton and the trust of the Sheriff’s office will never be the same. Shame on him!!! You know come to think about it, another Sheriff Named Jimmy Glass of Henry County was the same kinda Power Hungry person before he was arrested for traffing drugs..He too went to selling cars as a living….

I totally agree with you Billy; Victor’s goal was to entire consulate the consulate County Law Enforcement, City & County, underneath the command of his rule. Victor Hill spent four years, while office, campaigning for this. He was the news at a regular basis, his billboards was plastered around the county landscape, and his publication “The Sheriff’s Star” was his alter ego of himself, and the his attire was often a imitation of a real Sheriff.

Where did some of you people come from? You would think that in the 21st century some of you would have learned something besides hate. There is no race that is going to disappear from the face of the earth, so Fionna why are you such a hater? There are crooks in all races and I’m sure from your article that you know quite a bit about this stuff.
