    I went to this judge for help when a toombs cnty man & his son came to my house in cobbtown brandishing a gun at 10:30pm. The police would not arrest the men. They were obviously all friends. The gun wasn’t registered to either men. The 1 officer told me to shut-up & go in my house when I told them I wanted them arrested for terristic threats , trespassing, etc. Went to judge next morning & he said he’d have to ask his officer what really happened & he’d contact me. Never heard anything. I got 911 cd. They were trying to stop me from getting it. Them are some dirty crooked police & judge! 💯
