Why aren't former deputies

Why aren't former deputies required to surrender their badges upon separation from county service?

Gee, I've got half dozen

Gee, I've got half dozen friends in that area (Goshen) at least. Speer point is off Goshen Plantation Blvd. and Southlake Pkwy. They moved there to get away from stuff like this.

Mr. Spinks, quite often law

Mr. Spinks, quite often law enforcement officers in the area purchase their badges and have their names put on them. It is a common practice. You don't surrender your property do you??

Sorry to see this

Sorry to see this happen.

South Lake is normally a very quiet section of The Goshen Homeowners Community.

More surprising is the burglar wasn't caught on the scene, like the previous South Lakes Estates area burglar was about 10+ months ago.

Up until this burglary, Goshen Homeowners had not had a reported Homeowner Burglary since July 30th and that was a outlaying vacant house under reconstruction.

On a positive note: Given the number of security cameras in the Goshen community, residents are likely already reviewing security camera footage.

No big deal about the badges.

No big deal about the badges. They are everywhere. You can buy them out of the back of my VFW magazine, handcuffs and stretch pants, too.

My only thought Paul is why

My only thought Paul is why didn't you have these weapons secured in a vault where it would be a little harder to break-into? The badges aren't really an issue here as Paul being a former,former,former Deputy for R.C.there's always the possibility that he'll come back to the deparment and serve under Sheriff Strength again so he'd need his badges, and I personally would like to see Paul on our streets again. 'Mone back Paul, heads need crackin round here!!

True dat seenit! But it seems

True dat seenit! But it seems to me someone would here those power cutting tools. Besides all of that how many of these thugs would tote professional cutting tools with them? If they had cutting tools they would have already pawned them. Thing is Paul was serving our country in another country and was gone for long periods of time. It just seems he would have had dad or one of his brothers keep his weapons on lockdown at one of their places,cause as you know stuff happens.

Until we put criminals in
Unpublished

Until we put criminals in jail (not correctional facilities) and keep them there until their time is served. Until we take a criminal who has entered jail for the third time and never again let them out. Only then will crime stop. Anddo not tell me about their rights or overcrowding.

Want jobs? Convert surplus government properties into prisons, hire competent people to guard and feed the prisoners.

Give it seven years and there will be plenty of empty prison beds.

And we will be a whole lot safer.

Until then feel free to arm up and fire on sight. Do not fire to wound.

I think steelerbud1's level

I think steelerbud1's level of frustration is about at the same level as mine and probably most of law enforcement's, too. He (or she?) has a way with words I don't. Thanks for sharing your feelings steelerbud1; I certainly do share them.

Yes I did keep my badges with

Yes I did keep my badges with my name engraved in them that I bought while I performed my duties during one of my tenures with Richmond County Sheriff's Office. The service I provided during these times were tough and took a toll on me and my family, the badges were earned for my service! I regret leaving RCSO everyday for I put many years into only leave for reasons that could of been fixed many years ago with the retirement and salary. The Augusta Richmond County Goverment has enough funds to fix this but it has never been addressed. I respect the men and woman and supporters of RCSO and may once again return to give the community some good service. Security was upgraded but I didn't think of needing such measures after moving into this community...and Ed it's been a long time great to hear from you hope all is well. HNY !! signed..... Paul Kervin 'EX' Deputy
