We Are Above the Law Declares County Attorney


Habersham County, Georgia, the jurisdiction that allowed intentionally or through negligence a SWAT team to break into a home with violent force in the middle of the night and throw a stun grenade into a baby's face sending him to a hospital for weeks where he was in life support, has ruled that it would be illegal for the county to pay the baby's medical bills.

The negligence of the police, and thereby the county, is a triple dose. It was the wrong house. A SWAT team was unnecessary in order to exercise a search warrant for a drug suspect. There was no excuse for throwing a stun grenade into a baby's crib.

But the county attorney has ruled that the county is not liable for these massive incidences of unbridled negligence.

Isn't this part of the reason that all law enforcement - and many other Government officials - are bonded and insured? Is there a reason that their bonding agent isn't paying? Do attorneys intentionally suppress the knowledge that the bonding agents are the ones that should be attacked legally?

Just saying, we seem to never hear about bonding companies and agents... at least not in a big way. I should think that methods for going after the bonds of these guys would be the big news. Or is this going to happen now that the county won't pay? Or, is the county itself the bonding agent/company?

Why do we so seldom hear about the bonds and the bonding companies?
