Cobb County Justus is the most corrupt in the whole country but hey if you believe otherwise I will sell you some ocean front property in Arizona. Until Officers Dunkerton and Archer are charged for the murders of Glen Turner, Chris Miller and David Ackerman I will always conclude Cobb County as the most unsafe place for families to live. Germany had fascism Russia communism and here cobbunism which is still socialism. Nothing but a illegal racket. Note until May of 200 it was a misdemeanor to prostitute a child and a felony to prostitute an adult. Think about one of the weathiest counties in the state and who motivates laws of the state and 1995 666 Bill in Congress. This county stinks of child exploitation and general murder and involves the administration here.
