Dahlonega, GA asked in Criminal Law, Traffic Tickets and Probate for Georgia

Q: While I was getting booked in at LCSO I had the pleasure of watching an on duty officer that is (NOT) a diabetic give a

himself a shot of insulin that belongs to a co worker.all because I head him tell his female coworker he thinks he may be a diabetic. While on duty and infront of me.tell me how this is legal.and what would a news crew do with this type of issue. how can they charge me with possession of weed less than a once and not a thing for him given himself insulin shot that could of killed him.weed will not kill me. Would talking to the sheriff before court help me with problem. I don't mind the charges against me but I am having a hard time understanding how a badge on him gives them to authority to break the laws while booking me in for a lesser charge then I witnessed him doing. I think a local news crew should have a say in this if I get nothing else out of this.not fair to be locked up and see the ones locking up breaking the laws in uniform.i also have a failure to maintain lane.
