Today is May 12, 2011. I think my life may have been inadvertently threatened by the Paulidng County Sheriff’s Office. They have been harassing me for almost two years now. This harassment arises out of the Deprivation (CPS) case where they took my daughter and son due to domestic violence in October 2008. In October 2009, I had racist comments made to me (by CPT Bobby Godsey and Maj Ava Davis) within the vicinity of my children. After this incident, I had one of the same officers (CPT Bobby Godsey) almost break my window on my car harassing me without a cause. I made a formal complaint to their internal affairs office and The Governor of Georgia (Sonny Perdue). This officer tried to present false information to prevent any disciplinary actions, but the precinct camera told it all. Out of retaliation I have had officers follow me around and even go to my school campus (Atlanta Christian College) and stalk me there. Around the end of this past February 2011, Officers started making drives in front of my house, I’ve noticed them several times after I’m returning home from class and they are spinning out in front of my home (and nobody has called them). A month later, someone broke my kitchen window to gain access into my home (not a thief, because nothing was taken). Now they have started harassing me by pulling me over. I had an officer from Paulding County (J. Jones badge no. 646) pull me over today for no reason (this is the third time). He tried to say that I ran the stop sign but I was sitting at the stop sign when he pulled me over. I saw him pulling into the parking lot and he blinked his lights while I was still awaiting to turn onto the Highway. He motioned for me to roll down my window and I did. He said where the hell are you in a hurry to that you can’t stop at the stop sign. I said, excuse me. I stopped at the stop sign. He said the stop sign is back there. I told him I know where the stop sign is and I stopped back there before you were anywhere in sight and because that car that just passed was speeding, which you should have pulled over, I hadn’t turned yet. He said I don’t know who you think you are but I got something for you and this is just the least of what we can do to you. He then turned into the parking lot and pulled up behind me with his flashers on. He came to the window and I tried to reiterate to him that I had already stopped and this was harassment. He could care less what I had to say. He went to go write me a ticket and another lady from the parking lot of where I was leaving stopped and was asking what was going on because she couldn’t understand why he pulled me over. After seeing this he tried to tone his attitude down and was trying to justify why he gave me a ticket. This harassment comes days after another female officer from Paulding County flat out told me, after I identified her as the same officer who harassed me, that if she was harassing me she would have given me a ticket. Well I now have that ticket to prove it. And this harassment came minutes after I attempted to visit my daughter today. I visit with her on Thursdays. I showed up only to have my case worker (Tabitha Burrell) and supervisor (Lauren Casey) tell me that my daughter came to the visit but she won’t come to the office where I was to see me. If you remember, last time they refused to even bring my child, but because I let them know they were in violation of the law, court order, and their own state policy, they tried to cover themselves by alleging that she was at the visit today, but she would not come to the office where I was. Well, to clarify some things, I asked them to take me to the office where she was since she did not want to come to me. They procrastinated as usual and made every excuse in the book to prevent this. They went and got the Acting Director (who was a social worker two years ago and doesn’t even have the qualifications to hold this position) Barbara Burnley to enforce their lies. To make a long story short they asked me to leave. I left, but not before letting them know that they were withholding my daughter from coming to the visits and that I would be filing a complaint and addressing that before the court. Two officers became upset (one of which was Det. Lenny Carr) when I said I was going to file a complaint. When I got into my car to proceed out of the parking lot of the building like clock work comes the officer with the bogus ticket. These are not allegations, they are all facts and I have the voice recordings to prove it.
At this time I’m concerned about the safety and well being of my daughter. I feel that they may have had my daughter somewhere in that building watching that officer pull me over. Especially in light of the fact that she had just recently told me that the case worker was trying to force her to make false allegations against me and to say that she no longer wants to see me. She said that the case worker (Tabitha Burrell) and the foster mother told her that if she didn’t they can make it to where she will never see me again. They could have used her watching this officer pull me over to threaten her some more. These people are pure monsters without any accountability.
