DeKalb commissioner has arrest warrants in Gwinnett

January 21, 2010

From the AJC

The latest: Apparently the warrants that were in effect are no longer valid. It seems the warrants were canceled, and the commissioner allowed to make right the bad checks. According to the AJC, at 3 p.m. the warrants were still valid, but by 5 p.m. the warrants gad been canceled. This truly sucks. And it stinks too. If you ever had a warrant out for your arrest, you know that you are never give the opportunity to make it right before you go to jail. Even the Gwinnett Sheriffs office was puzzled as to why Barnes Sutton was still at large. I smell a rat here. But I’d bet my last dollar that this goes nowhere. The officers responsible for her release, the judge who canceled the warrants, and Ms. Barnes-Sutton will all walk away as if this never happened. The really sad part is that there are men and women languishing in DeKalb jail on outstanding warrants for things as small as a traffic violation.

Damn, Damn, Damn. We can’t win for losing. Now we have a commisioner with warrants out for her arrest. According to the AJC article, Commissioner Barnes-Sutton is wanted for passing bad checks. Now I know that people make mistakes, but apparently this is not the first time. She may need to take some financial management classes to bone up on how to use checks. It seems, according to her bio ( http://web.co.dekalb.ga.us/barnes_sutton/bio.asp), she is a very intelligent woman. Passing several bad checks though would bring some doubt to that assertion.

By the way did anyone notice that the police did not arrest her for those outstanding warrants. Hmmm, what quid pro quo went on here? Just asking, because you know had that been you or I, we would have been sitting in the back of a squad car.
