The Devil Got Appointed in Georgia: Chapter Two- Continuation of the Caroline Small Story
Before I move on to the next saga which will be Cory Sasser’s IA record, I want to restate that this entire shit show only happens because of corruption. For now, it bears understanding a bit more the backstory to the Caroline Small Shooting. To those of us without that sort of Machiavellian thinking, which must be factory installed, it is stupefying to see all the behind the scenes machinations. That is why I want to go back to the appointment of Jackie Johnson.
The District Attorney, prior to the shooting, Stephen Kelley, was appointed to a Circuit Court judgeship and had named his predecessor for the remainder of his term, (roughly less than 6 months), as David Perry. Perry disclosed publicly, he wasn’t running for the position in November of that year. He was always strictly a temporary prosecutor. Unbeknownst to him at the time, he became more temporary than even he thought.
Further, flaunting the perversion of justice, Doering, in a gesture that should be insignificant in the overall scheme of things, wrote a letter to then Governor Sonny Perdue recommending Jackie Johnson be appointed immediately, prior to the November election. In a more paradoxical deviation of all reasoning, Perdue acquiesced and removed Perry, replacing him with Jackie. She, then, unsurprisingly, summarily fired Perry for his handling of this case as well as ceasing the proceedings, while lambasting Perry for the convening of a grand jury against Sasser and Simpson. She cited increased friction with the Glynn County Police Department that could not be tolerated. However, no one else was cognizant of any friction between the DA’s office and the Glynn County Police except perhaps Matt Doering. Point of fact, the friction was between the GBI and the Glynn Police and the DA’s office that Jackie’s appointment further exacerbated.
After Perry’s firing, the ADA’s in the office with Jackie were targeted, as described in the prior post. Keith Higgins maintained the physical file of this case in his office until his termination. He is adamant Jackie never once came down to get that file to review while he was still employed, even when she was preparing the purely theatrical grand jury later seated with the officers having the upper hand. Her appointment by Perdue is confounding, especially considering, Perry was sufficiently navigating the waters of a powder keg case that Sasser and Simpson lit with their 8 shots into the windshield of a single mother.
My questions, so far, in this mockery of justice are:
- What individual motives are there for all the actors to obfuscate justice? Is it a common incentive or do they individually have motivation? Or is it, truly, that these people are so inept that they cannot investigate a crime?
- Why did Doering’s recommendation carry so much weight to prompt the governor to replace Perry, right then? Was there more than just Doering’s recommendation that paved the way for Jackie to jump in?
- Why is Sasser, specifically, important to protect?
