"Snatched open a locked door"

"Snatched open a locked door" Snatched? Does that mean forced? pushed? kicked? pulled hard? Just wondering about the word.

Augusta, Richmond County

Augusta, Richmond County crime and blight are out of control. Criminals are in control. We need a strong Mayor!

One mayor, no matter how

One mayor, no matter how strong, can be the protector of a city. It takes a mayor, a city administrator, a chief law enforcment officer, commissioners, business leaders, church leaders, and law abiding citizens. I'm no fan of Hillary Clinton, but I would say that it indeed does "take a village."

I agreed with a neighbor one

I agreed with a neighbor one time about "it takes a village", and I added, "but it also takes responsible parents". Boy, did I get a dirty look. Nothing but trouble followed as long as they lived there until they were evicted. At one time she was living with a felon with an ankle bracelet on, (you know what kind) and one of her sons was fresh out of jail and determined to get into more trouble. I had nothing to do with them getting evicted, because I'd already moved my family away from that neighborhood from Hades by then, too bad they weren't evicted sooner.

Corner of Willis Foreman and

Corner of Willis Foreman and Deans Bridge. Bet the core Hephzibah folks hate it when they get this kind of unwanted press. Ask them, nothing bad happens in the "Great STATE of Hephzibah".!!!

Well that really isn't true Hephzibah. I believe that is just South Augusta.

In area, the rural sprawl of

In area, the rural sprawl of Hephzibah is now roughly the size of London.

Snatch (used here as a clean verb) means to seize by a sudden grasp; similar to the way a Republican engages in political discourse.

There is nothing the mayor,

There is nothing the mayor, city administrator, police chief, commissioners, church leaders, parents, siblings, spouse can do about someone intent on robbing a business. The police are only there to take the report afterward. The business owner is the one who needs to take responsibility for protecting their business by ANY means necessary. Judge Overstreet recently protected his home the BEST way. His home, his life and his valuables were safe and the CRIMINAL will never commit another crime. That kid had a good mother who worked for the Judge and gave him a good life, but yet HE chose to be a criminal.

No, it does NOT take a village. It takes good parents plus a child who wants to be a good citizen. Many criminals had the best of parents. It is ONE person and ONE person only responsible for how they live their life. Many good people come out of the projects and many bad seeds come from McMansions. It's a personal thing. Nothing more.

Humble; If i may humbly share

Humble; If i may humbly share just this. When Butch Palmer was accused of pointing a gun at a crack dealer back in his old haunts trying to get his crack biz going again the tax USERS took the side of the crack dealer. They took the crack dealers word over Butch Palmer.

When a convicted felon was killed trying to attack a woman who went with a friend to check out some noises at a neighbor’s home the tax USERS took the side of the convicted felon caught red handed in the commission of a felony and attacking a defenseless woman.

In our studies the tax USERS are representing & HIRING felons, crack dealers, sex offenders, theives, liars, and mostly criminals over the never charged with anything property tax paying property owners. So yes there is something the tax USERS can do to earn the millions we pay them. First SELL some of the over 1 Billion $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ in assets they own we bought for them.

Stop paying half a million dollars a pop for pipe dreams. Tax USERS KNOW they can buy pipe dreams from those they hire for about $20 a crack rock, their lifestyle, not mine. I don’t even smoke, they do.

Then give the property tax paying property owner who cannot run the benefit of the doubt over the known lies of convicted felons who are here one minute and nowhere to be found the next. This will make it not so attractive to the criminal element. As it is criminals are sending for their cousins from all over America to move to Augusta cause they know what the facts bear out. In Augusta the tax USERS will hire or take the side of the criminals, felons, theives, liars, sex offenders, murderers and such more than they will believe the never charged property tax payer.

Some tax USERS have made Augusta a magnet for criminals. This is why we are seeing some of this crime like this one here. It comes from the 25 yr old KNOWN crack houses the tax USERS are protecting and the well connected families that have a lot of pull around this town. Recently when one of these well connected folks child was arrested sitting on several kilos of coke he got a small slap on the wrist. If a property tax payer had done the same thing their property would be gone. You know it, we know it, this is FACT.

These are hard facts backed up by THEIR records not mine. This is why the city fought so hard to cover up the fact they hire so many felons. They gave the Chronicle a hard time so whose side are these tax USERS on, after all?
