“No evidence has been presented to show any violation of code of Judicial Ethics by Judge Weaver. Instead, the evidence appears to show a personal dislike of the Judge.”
Last week the Georgia Judicial Qualification Commission dismissed the complaint against Appalachian Judicial District Chief Superior Court Judge Brenda Weaver.
“The complaint of Thomason, Stookey, Doss and the GCSPJ are without any basis in law or fact. The complaints are nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to enlist the JQC in their fixation upon harming Judge Weaver. The JQC will have no further part in it. All complaints are hereby dismissed.”
The complaint was submitted to the JQC by Mark Thomason, former publisher of the Fannin Focus, his attorney Russell Stookey and Fannin County Attorney Lynn Doss.
In the JQC conclusions they addressed the Georgia Chapters Society of Professionals Journalist complaint that Weaver mounted an attack on freedom of the press.
“Calling oneself a “journalist” and “reporter” should not be a cover for pursuing personal vendettas.”
Stookey and Thomason with the assistance of Fannin County Attorney Lynn Doss raised a complaint to the FBI to initiate an investigation.
JQC, “The FBI investigated the allegations raised by Stookey and Thomason but found no wrongdoing.”
On June 15th Atlanta Attorney Gerry Weber, representing Russell Stookey and Mark Thomason, sent a demand letter and Ante Litem Notice to Judge Brenda Weaver, District Attorney B. Alison Sosebee and Pickens County Board of Commissioners.
Part of Weber’s summary of claim, “This case has already garnered national attention. It involves breathtaking abuse of power by a Judge, prosecutor, and law enforcement who manipulated the criminal justice system to wage a personal vendetta against a local newspaper publisher and his attorney.”
Weber’s claim for damages conclusion, “Further accounting for damages stemming from the emotional distress in false arrest and malicious prosecution and for the punitive damages due to egregiousness of the actions leading to the arrests, Stookey’s and Thomason’s damages exceed 1,000,000.”
How far will this case go considering the FBI and JQC have closed their investigation both dismissing the possible charge of wrongdoing.
The Murray County Sheriff’s Office is calling this an act of animal cruelty. They are trying to track down whoever is responsible.
The couple held back tears, still in shock that their 10-month old puppy was shot and killed. His death is a lot for them to understand.
Hannah Mayo was relaxing at home when someone knocked on her front door, but before she could answer, “I heard a gun go off. Two of the three dogs, they are inside dogs, were on their way running back.”
Her 10-month old, Yellow Lab, Beau was nowhere to be found. At first she thought he ran off, scared from the loud noise. She later found out he had been shot in the head, left to die miles away from home. “Ruthlessly dumped, so we may never have found him. No idea what happened to him if we couldn’t find his body. I don’t understand how people could do that.”
Hannah’s boyfriend had searched the neighborhood for the puppy, trying to understand why anyone would do this. “What’s a little puppy going to do? If there was a reason it’s beyond me,” said Matt Harris.
Three hours later, he finally found Beau, tossed on the side of the road. “In a grocery bag. Just over his head. It didn’t fit his whole body.”
The family has no idea why anyone would have done this to their beloved four legged friend. “He was so sweet, a Yellow Lab, if you ever have had one you know their nature. They wouldn’t hurt a fly,” said Mayo.
Hannah took Beau for a walk every day. She didn’t use a leash because no one was around and says he wasn’t a threat to anyone. “Didn’t have free reign of the area never outside unsupervised for longer than 5-10 minutes.”
The family said the puppy was like one of their kids, and they can’t understand what type of person could shoot an animal. They hope to get justice for Beau. “Helpless feeling. Very helpless. Hope and pray someone saw something and will come forward.”
Police continue to investigate. If you have any information about this, you are urged to contact the Murray County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 695-4592. Live Broadcast From Channel 3 WRCBTV.http://www.wrcbtv.com/story/34099941/puppy-shot-and-killed-tossed-in-a-garbage-bag

Decatur, GA – Please be advised that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s main line (404-244-2600) has been compromised as a result of telephone spoofing. This is a scam that the GBI has been dealing with for approximately one month. When a telephone number is spoofed, the Caller ID of the caller will appear to be coming from a valid number. In the cases specifically related to the GBI, the individual being called will see telephone number 404-244-2600.
In many of the phone calls, the caller has called home phones and cell phones stating that they are with the GBI collecting a debt with the IRS or collecting a debt for college and that there would be a warrant out for their arrest if they didn’t pay the fine.
The GBI does not contact individuals for debt collection. If you get a call from anyone claiming to represent the GBI in this manner, you are urged not to conduct any business over the phone if you did not initiate the call. Additionally, do not give credit card information out to someone who has called you.
The GBI is currently investigating this matter.
