Judge Let’s Cop Killer walk

Spread the word

Gwinnett County (GA) Police Officer Antwan Toney was shot and killed by a chump who the District Attorney requested, demanded and begged that he be locked up.  The pleas fell on deaf ears.

The evil soul was a self proclaimed gang leader and responsible for a number of violent crimes throughout the area.

When he came before judge robert waller, for the fourth time, he was, again, released on probation.  The prosecutor told the judge that this guy was going to kill someone.  How true those words would become.

Several months later police responded to a suspicious auto call.  Officer Toney and his partner approached.  The driver, who should have been secured in a detention facility, opened fire on the approaching officers.  Killing Toney.


Officer Toney was described as “great to be around,” “Big smile, big heart.” and according to other officers, “Always ready to go to work.”

This fine young man, taken too soon by a deranged killer who beat the system.  Not once but three times.

Hey you black robed dispensers of justice, wake up.  Some folks need to be locked away.

God speed Officer Antwan Toney.  This didn’t have to happen!

  1. Inflammatory language (chump, evil, begged, fine young) does not help this case. There are many systematic problems along the blue line in America’s criminal justice system. Anecdotes inflame, statistics prove. It is still more dangerous to be a lumber jack or sea fisherman than a cop or fireman, and more Americans still die from falling furniture or tornados than terrorists. But thosr statistics just don’t fan outrage.

    Anecdotal stories, and accompanying outrage, are driving our country to for-profit corporate fascism, and more volatile and hair triggered tribalism. But solving nothing.

    We both know throwing away the key, lifetime servatude, making outcasts, creates a class of citizens, walking among us, with nothing to lose … ticking timebombs. Countries with universal dignity, hope, skills, a share of the pie, a life worth living from the lowest laborer to the highest financier enjoy the highest freedom of personal security.

    Creating a we/they tribalism empowers your enemy. While doing so appeals to some, at an emotional level, and it makes huge money for a connected handful, it makes no policeman or citizen safer. This we know.
