    This is awesome. Thank you Cobb Police. Smyrna led the way. Marietta and Kennesaw still need to step up. And Cobb County Sheriff Warren needs to become a historical note. We have to vote Warren out. Cobb’s jail, that Warren runs, has inmate deaths regularly. All deaths at Warren’s jail are behind closed doors, away from public scrutiny. Nobody ever sees or knows what happened. The only information we get is whatever Warren tells us. Warren even banned the Marietta Daily Journal from entering the jail so he maintained 100% control of information leaving “his” jail. All of the inmate deaths under Warren might have been just like George Floyd’s death, for all we voters know. Warren needs to learn that “his” jail is actually “our” jail, and that he needs take a long walk.
