Mr. Wade Starr has his Pre-Issuance Criminal Arrest Warrant hearing scheduled on 21 June 2010 at 8 AM in Room 201 of the Clayton County Courthouse.

Guess those verbal and physical threats that's stemmed from the Open Records Request (Georgia Sunshine Law) for county cell phone text messages and call records didn't go over so well at the last commissioners meeting. 

Looks like county paid for Anger Management Course may be in order.


Wonder if he'll be in a wheelchair as well (taking a page out of Lee Scott's Courtroom play-book) and how Mr. Tom Jones of WSB-TV will spin and edit this video?

Thanks John, corrected it...Rock


Pay close attention to the Judge that gets this case. CLOSE ATTENTION!

I agree. This could be interesting.


Yes, very interesting!  I am shocked they actually set this up;  although, I don't think I have ever heard of a pre-arrest warrant hearing...did Jewell make this up while she was in office?

In times past such was  referred to as a "pre-issuance hearing" and they were in fact common. Oftentimes when someone applied for a warrant against another person the magistrate court would require such a hearing to get to the facts of the matter particularly where the complaint might be dubious. Upon conclusion of such a hearing a determination would be made whether to issue a warrant. Sometimes a warrant was issued as applied for. Sometimes it was not. I even saw one instance where both parties ended up going to jail after they "proved their case" against each other. When neither side brought an attorney to court it was always good for a very quiet giggle or two (can't let the judge see it or hear it- they get mad about that sort of thing).

The Judge found the allegation (attached) did not rise to the occasion of issuing a warrant.  This is not a declaration of guilt or innocence by the court either.

It does not mean that the allegation was false, only that the elements to issue a warrant was not presented.

This also doesn't mean that this is the end of the case.  It can still be presented in Civil Court for restitution and damage.

Amazingly, the Commission tolerates this behavior from a public servant and they have also witnessed like behavior with their own eyes.  This behavior is condoned by the Board!  No mandatory anger management classes for Mr. Starr?  No blue ribbon investigative commission led by Mr. Cohilas?  No referral for investigation to the State Attorney Generals Office (funny how those investigations never seem to make it in the mail to Atlanta)?

A "loose cannon on deck" is a dangerous thing to have rolling around.  A loose cannon like Mr. Starr can cause a lot of collateral damage under the right conditions.  Y'all know that "loose lips, sinks ships"!  People like to talk (esp. after a few drinks) and a word of advice, you 3 may want to cut bait.

Having walked on this one, it properly focuses the public’s eye on Mr. Starr's long time and well known out bursts of temper.  Those that work with him and citizens in public have witnessed acts of bullying and intimidation to include unwelcome and aggressive physical contact.  Several times these acts were witnessed firsthand by members of the Clayton County Police Department on the very steps of the Smith Street Annex without intervention.  How can the public get a pass?  We sure would like one too.

The case documents were difficult to obtain because of a "DO NOT RELEASE" order seemingly coming from DC Porter (attached).  It is interesting to say the least to wonder what parameters DC Porter used to decide NOT to release this public document to the public.  Another thing one must wonder is if Chief Robinson condoned the holding of public information.  Also, who was consulted inside and outside of the CCPD in determining these documents should be withdrawn from public view.
