    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc.
    3 - Please remember to not use all CAPS or capitalize the beginning letter of every single word or every other word, or use IM/text abbreviations (except like LOL). Please have respect for other readers and type words out. Not everyone is into that and it is inappropriate here. [examples: "cuzn" "tha" "dat" and so many more] Learn proper English! You should have learned it in school.
    4 - Your comments must be all in English, using proper English, too. No huge run-on sentences (use punctuation). Pretend you learned something in English class.
    5 - I will also not allow Anonymous comments. This includes using anonymous, obviously fake email addresses (you@you.com, me@me.com, anonymous@yahoo.com, or fictional characters, etc.)
    6 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

  1. I’m hoping its not too late for me to comment and I hope you post my comment(s). I clearly remember this case. My heart and sympathy went out to Derwin, his loving wife and family, his loyal friends and co-workers, and the rest of the beautiful people who believed in him. I’ve never lived anywhere near Atlanta but I truly believed he was born to make a hugh impact on people’s lives when he was elected sheriff.

    Sidney Dorsey got what he deserved even though I wished he’d been sentence to death. What makes a human so evil? Lust for power has put him in the one place he didn’t expect to be: behind bars for life. I haven’t heard of a more corrupt sheriff than Sidney Dorsey. Now, he’ll spend the rest of his life among his kind: criminals. This is black-on-black crime of the highest level. The first word that pops in my mind that describes Sidney is devil.

    Greedy black men in high powered positions are eventually punished for their crime(s). Wonder if Dorsey and the other defendants are blaming racism. Oh thats right, Atlanta’s like 90% black.
