Sounds like a case of self defense. Why was she even near the home after trying to kill him? Sounds like another gestapo arrest to try to get another frivolous conviction. Cobb Police stink to high heaven with the blood of innocent people and hands are stained with the innocense of children. I wouldn´t raise my child(ren) here because I know better. The public schools favor bullying and profiling. There is nothing good about this God forsaken county since the idiots from up North came down and made it a racket. Don´t believe me? Just be patient and you will run into one of their gestapo officers one day. Just remember patience is a virtue and they don´t care. They want all of you on probation, in jail or both period. They entered my home one night illegally and threatened to arrest me when I questioned their authority and demanded them to leave. I used to wonder about how it was in communist countries but I don´t wonder about that anymore when I see them covering up and partaking in murders and covering child molestation cases for their employees and campaign contributors. Sick bunch of people running this county. They are the ones that need to be in the same jail that they want to put everybody else in. The justus sytem of Cobb is more corrupt than Hitlers regeme.
