Whatever corruption there is in the County and the City should be exposed. Whether it lies within the judicial system, including judges, the District Attorney’s Office, the lawyers, the staffing or within the Mayors’ Offices, the City and County Officials, the Police Chief, the Sheriff, wherever and with whomever, pollution within these bodies should be uncovered. When you have a case before a judge and use a local attorney you should not be afraid that some back room deal is going on that sacrifices you or your case due to some misdeed or some deal that the attorneys have cooked up. When the judge sits on the bench there should not be something dangling over his head to influence his decision making and fairness.
Should the Bradley County Bar Association be investigated and the attorneys involved? Are they policing themselves properly or covering up without reprimands?
Is it true there is much corruption in Bradley County and that certain people know the dirt and use it at the expense of all of us? Are certain cases and types of situations handled differently due to some personal problem that the judge or D.A. or the attorney may have? These are just questions, and should we or shouldn’t we be sifting through those who hold power and influence and asking for the best and for them to do what is right. Clean house, every once in a while it is good to get rid of the dust bunnies and clear the deck and wipe the slate clean. An attorney or two holding power, a judge or two making bad decisions, all feeling that they are scotched in their jobs because they know something on so and so and they in turn know something on the next so and so and the nasty little web of corruption grows.
Before you choose an attorney in Cleveland and Bradley County, just think about these things. Are they circling the wagons and what else may be going on that needs to be known that may harm you, your family or the community?
For corrupt systems and power players to be knocked down you simply have to chip away and chip away the edges and eventually they may fall.
