Physicians generally have the public trust. When an individual is in pain, he or she visits the doctor to find relief. Any prescriptions that are given are believed to help, not harm the patient. One Georgia physician, however, is having his reputation called into question after facing drug charges.
Police officers have the duty to serve and protect. These men and women work to ensure that Georgia residents abide by the laws of the state. This past week an 11-year veteran of the DeKalb County Police Department has been arrested on a string of drug charges.
The Department of Justice is making bold moves to combat prison overcrowding, while still addressing public safety. In light of new sentencing guidelines for those already imprisoned on drug charges, the DOJ now moves to support reduced sentencing to those currently incarcerated.
