Victor Hill’s Money Pit

This, via the Clayton County News-Daily, should come as no surprise to anyone following the debacle on the southside.

Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill looted money from a drug forfeiture fund and a vending machine fund, spending it wildly, according to a suit filed by the Sheriff’s Office’s former accountant.

Let’s review, shall we? Snipers on the roof, illegal terminations, hostile take-over attempts, holding inmates double hostage – for paperwork, barring the press from public meetings, 17000 unserved warrants… shall I go on? (Whew! I need to take a little breather here.) He’s a busy fellow alright, especially when it comes to NOT doing the job he was elected for. Destruction seems to be right up his alley – of the rule of law, the citizen’s trust, public safety, accountability, respect, integrity – just pick one. Now Walking Small is running for a second term.

[Pam] Blasingim claims that when she and the legal advisor told the sheriff his spending was inappropriate, he would ask, “Can I go to jail?” When she told him she couldn’t justify expenses, in case of an audit, he allegedly said he wasn’t worried about an audit and she shouldn’t be either — she should just do what she was told.

My hope and prayer for Clayton County is that he loses in the primary. TOMORROW, TOMORROW, the primary’s TOMORROW, it’s only a DAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY AAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAYYYY!!

UPDATE: At least he’s in a run-off. Unbelievable!

    Victor Hill was the best thing to happen to Clayton County. You can get back to your good old boy network (which Sheriff Hill broke up with the firings) and watch your floundering county go back to it’s foolishness. Clayton County is now predominately made up of Blacks who don’t want Victor Hill because he understands the need for a different type of policing. He will never win over whites because they were still trying to ressurect the old Klan mentality that dominated Clayton County prior to the mid 80’s. Dekalb County has over 40,000 unserved warrants and Fulton over 30,000. In the scriptures the people were given a choice between Jesus and Barabas the people chose Barabas. When the sheeple choose beware.

    If Victor Hill was the best thing to happen to Clayton County then Clayton is in a heap of hurt.

    Walking Tall is an egomaniac, probably brought on by short man’s syndrome. S Jones had one thing right in his comment, Shorty Hill will never be accepted again by blacks or whites. Good riddance to a cancer in Clayton!

    S. Jones,

    Sounds like you are another black racist. Victor ran a good, hardcore jail and I believe in some of his other duties, but his mouth and his screw people mentality is why he was shown the door. I think it is comical about there being a “klan mentality”. Sad thing is when blacks live in a community where the govt. is made up of whites, some or most, NOT ALL complain about this and that being unfair and against them. As soon as one takes office then usually whites are terminated, they hire their friends and relatives which is usually something they complain about when they are not in office, abuse their authority, try to defy authority and I could go on and on. The bottom line is Kimbrough is a black man also but the difference that makes us respect him is he seems to be a class act.

    The county is full of uneducated blacks who use race to get in office. They were just defeated in the election. These scum will never be allowed in office again here. My suggestion is they find another county where they can move in, and fool the other fools to get in office there. We are through with these loosers here.

    Racism is wrong regardless of who does it. Victor Hill has shown to be an egomanical racist from his 1st day in office. Those that still support him either have their heads in the sand or are racists themselves. He’s done NOTHING but hurt Clayton Co.

    Millions of dollars in law suits, ruined lives, misappropriation of funds, trying to consolidate ALL PD power under his jurisdiction,….etc. Follow the links at the top of this article to fully understand the scope. I personally believe he should be IN jail, instead of running one.

    I still can’t believe that he was almost voted back into office. Are there that many people who are willing to tolerate the way he abused his position, just to keep a black man in office? Thank God for Kimbrough. If being black HAS to be a qualification for being the sheriff in Clayton Co., then at least we’ve chosen someone who, I believe, will be fair to everyone and not abuse his position.

    With those recently elected, Clayton Co seems to have finally returned to its senses. Maybe now we can really move forward again.

    I am a black female living in Fulton County and no disrespect to anyone but Victor Hill was not good for Clayton County. A lot of decisions he made, he made without authority. That alone, white black or green is unacceptable. NO ONE should be in that type of position without knowing the law i.e. what you do and don’t have the authority to do. Furthermore, if you don’t know then you need to have the common sense and experience to ask someone before making dumb decisions that puts Clayton in liable and legal troubles. Additionally, you have to have the temperament and professionalism to deal with your counterparts (Chair of Clayton Commission) because you are a leader who leads by example. Over all, Victor Hill did not have nor at least did not exhibit the qualities one needs to have when in that position such as experience, professionalism, maturity and temperament. He spoke before thinking or knowing which is not good at all. I do hope that Clayton can turn it around.

    The problem with people like SJones and Victor HIll that they are ignorant of the facts. Fist, Victor Hill was the sheriff. The Chief of Police was Jeff Turner. These are two distinctly different organizations. If there need to be a new typr of policing, perhap HIll should have left it up to the police to handle. His problem was he ran for sheriff but wanted to be a police officer. That why you had sheriff deputies who were used to securing the jail and courthouse violating rights and putting the taxpayer money at risk as they attempted to handle “police work”.

    Don’t blame Victor Hill for Clayton County’s woes. Certainly, he is a complete idiot, not much unlike his fellow South Carolinian — Vernon Jones — who really, truly wrecked another suburban Atlanta county. Only after 2016 will Jones’ harm be revealed to property owners.

    Victor Hill … he is merely a reflection of the will of the people. It should not go unnoticed that even after ALL his troubles – jailing people he fired, denying constitutional rights of suspects, conducting raids outside his authority, holding prisoners just to secure taxpayer dollars (common throughout Georgia) … this acts of his ARE the will of the people. This is what 49.9 % of Clayton County wants from its sheriffs.

    In the run-off election, Victor Hill lost by less than 1% of the vote!! Newly-elected Kim Kembrough should hence forewarned of the will of the other half of Clayton County’s people.

    Victor Hill, lawless Clayton County will miss you.

    [...] he ruined the county’s reputation, tanked property values, allowed crime to increase, looted accounts, put snipers on the roof, ordered illegal terminations, attempted hostile take-overs, held inmates [...]

    The school board, the past sheriff, the county commission and probably every other elected official in Clayton county of that era, are incompetent. That in itself is bad, but the horrid part is the people of Clayton are not focused on their own well being. I suggest everyone get a five by ten of Victor Hill. Write liar and thief on the picture and tape the picture to the inside of the front door.
    Ask yourselves each time the picture comes into view, how and why was this clown elected. Change what was by forming from the ground and go upward.

    Our company, Hard Tactics, has watched the Clayton County drama for two years. We teach a SWAT leadership course. In that course, we have drawn several leadership examples from the Clayton County Sheriff’s office during the last two years. As in all of our leadership courses, ethics and values are the center piece. Coming from a Special Forces background, I used to hate it when General Boykin used to say “perception is reality”. Unfortunately, he is and always has been right. We must guard against even the perception of inpropriety. Since, obviously, we don’t live in Clayton County and have no possible way to judge Sheriff Hill, we can only offer that the perceptions he created were, to say the least, unfortunate.

    In comparison, no matter who you voted for in the last presidential election we can see one very clear lesson. Both men, appeared to be fine upstanding leaders of quality. Both men had their lives put under a microscope. Neither, of course, came out without any faults, but neither appeared to have problems with ethics either. Therefore, both men were judged primarily on what the electorate thought of the direction they stated they would lead the country. “Snipers on the roof, illegal terminations, hostile take-over attempts, holding inmates double hostage – for paperwork, barring the press from public meetings, 17000 unserved ” (S Jones ethics also dictates that failures of others is not an excuse for your failure). Not good press, not good perceptions.
    Good luck Clayton County.

    Victor Hill is the scum of the earth, regardless if he is black or white. I hope he really gets his just rewards like dying in jail alone or having some bad STD to cope with. This (small) man is just that'””””””””” SMALL and I think he is a filthy maggot that deserves nothing better than to be stomped on.
