Atlanta Courthouse Murders - A Vote of No Confidence?
Local media are reporting that the judges in the Atlanta Courthouse met yesterday (Sunday) and have decided to hold a limited "emergencies" only calendar for Monday and then be down for the rest of the week. They cite the need for a time to grieve for all who work at the courthouse, which I fully understand, but I suspect it is a vote of no confidence in the FUCO Sheriff's department and in their security efforts that in no small way drives this move. This is the proverbial shot accross the bow, and contrary to those who have emailed to say that they don't think heads will roll, I believe that these judges have had a serious wakeup call and will not hesitate to hold the FUCO Sheriff's office over an open pit and turn up the flames as needed. Suffice it to say, breathing trumps politics. This will get really ugly really fast.
