Georgia Cop That was Fired for Hitting Man with Car is Hired by Another Dept.

Georgia police officer Taylor Saulters hit a man with a patrol vehicle, got fired for it, and was hired by another law enforcement department all in less than a week.

Saulters, who was fired from the Athens-Clarke County Police Department, was quickly hired by the Oglethorpe County Sheriff’s Office, which is about a 17-minute drive down the street from the police department.

Oglethorpe County Sheriff David Gabriel has known Saulters all of his life and said that Saulters will be great for his department.

Sheriff Gabriel said in a statement:

“I have no reservations about Deputy. Saulters serving this community. As a citizen of Oglethorpe County you will find the wisdom of this decision in getting a deputy of this caliber. If you still have concerns I will discuss them with you if you contact me,”

On Friday June 1, 2018 Saulters was chasing a suspect that had outstanding warrants, identified as Timmy Patmon. The suspect was running on foot and Saulters was chasing the man in his patrol car. Saulters attempted to cut Patmon off with the cruiser once, but that attempt failed.

Moments later, Saulters attempted a second time to cut Patmon off, but instead, hit Patmon with the front of the patrol vehicle, launching Patmon onto the windshield where he landed hard on the ground.

Saulters and other officers on scene then made the arrest. Patmon only sustained minor injuries.

But Athens-Clarke County Police Chief Scott Freeman was not happy about the actions of Saulters. Just one day after the incident the chief fired Saulters following an internal affairs investigation.

When news of Saulters’s firing broke, he threatened to sue news outlets for spreading misinformation.

But just four days after his firing, Saulters was hired by the Oglethorpe County Sheriff’s Office.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
