Fulton County's rapid development is threatened by hybrid crime but has a Sheriff's Office with a hands-off approach to doing something about it.

What appeared as the promise of progress forward; today, the incumbent sheriff leaves citizens vulnerable and underserved by also "not getting involved."

Only the rule of law can take back control of the immense bureaucracy.
