DEAR EDITOR:

Here we go again with “Cancel Culture”! Really Georgia Department of Public Safety!

After all these years, now you want to bully my home town Heroes (Angels) Ball Ground Police Department for them using speed radar devices. Shame on you State of Georgia to “cease and desist” speed detection in my home town.

There has always been someone from Ball Ground Police on call 24/7 when the Police Department would close. Then Cherokee County Police Department would take over. If you want to find fault with BPD then you better find fault with all the towns in Georgia that also includes Atlanta. I will always stand up and defend Ball Ground Police Department and Chief Reeves. Don’t Tread on Ball Ground, Georgia!

You gave no argument for your case, which reflects a complete lack of knowledge of the facts. That's right, facts. Remember when facts used to matter?

Ramble On

This is the most ignorant thing I have ever read in a "Newspaper" even if it is in the Opinion Section.

In the legal world of Government - if a policy is not written down, dated, and filed to be produced if needed for evidence then said policy did not officially exist and the Chief may have (repeat, may have) committed fraud in license application leading to his officers may have (repeat, may have) violated the rights of citizens by illegally using radar to collect evidence of traffic violations.

This ain't got nothing to do with democrats, this ain't got nothing to do with leftist alphabet soup groups, this ain't got nothing to do with wokeness, this ain't CANCEL CULTURE.
