Radio Personality Supports Dekalb County Police Ticket StrikeFor Immediate Release ContactDominique Huff 404-277-5238Dominique@tenthamendmentmedia.com COLLEGE PARK-Dekalb County Police Officers have stated they are bringing back their annual ticket strike and the recent edition of the Atlanta Community Affair (ACA)says it should be permanent this time. The county lost five million dollars in 2010 andcould possibly lose more. County police, according to the unofficial departmental blog,dekalbofficersspeak.blogspot.com report that if they have to take cuts and hits, so can thecounty commissioners and CEO.“What is really amazing to me is that Dekalb County government officials are more upsetabout lost revenue than traffic safety, which proves all along that traffic tickets only existfor financial gain,” Dominique Huff, CEO and Founder of the Tenth Amendment MediaGroup said. “Dekalb County has one of the highest crime rates in the metro area and theBoard of Commissioners and CEO is more concerned about having officers rob citizensat gunpoint during traffic stops. “ Huff is also the host of ACA.The Dekalb Officers Speak blog has been an eye opener for what’s happening behind thescenes in Tucker (home of the Dekalb Police Headquarters). On the edition of ACA,Huff calls for the elimination of county police departments and wants to see the Sheriff handle those duties. “Metro Atlanta has 20 counties and seven of them have county police departments. Every one of these county police departments has some sort of  political budgetary issue,” he explained. “If we were to abolish these departments andeven some of these small cities and let the Sheriff handle it, then we would have moreaccountability and responsibility. It’s unfortunate that police officers are being pimpedout by elected officials for revenue.”The Sheriff is a constitutional position and all 159 of Georgia’s counties have one. TheSheriff is hired and fired by the voters while the police chief is a bureaucrat for theelected officials.
