City to pay $1 million-plus to settle Atlanta Eagle dispute *| ajc.com

For what it's worth, I'm glad this is over. I was surprised and disappointed when it happened. I truly hope we can heal some wounds after this.

The real problem is that even in this economic downturn, not enough of the best & brightest of Georgia's citizenry are getting into law enforcement. There need to be more APD Police Sergeants & Lieutenants who are sophisticated enough & well-read in civil liberties who can decipher between resorting to harsh tactics when needed & alternately using real-politik/diplomancy when that need arises as well.

When we have situations like police officers coming into the force with expunged misdemeanors moving up into higher positions of leadership, we as Georgians will continue to get this sub-standard policing. Love it or hate it, that's my opinion on this subject.
