In Dekalb County Georgia last week, Judge Anne Workman allowed Former Dekalb County Sheriff Deputy Derrick Yancy to post bond and return home. This is difficult to comprehend after the murder of his wife Linda Yancey and a day laborer for whom he is accussed of murdering on June 9, 2008.
Did I mention that Yancey is a former corrections officer who escorted prisioners to and from lock up in the very same building for nearly seventeen years?
Where is Bill O'Reilly? He should be jumping all over this judge's behind. Judge Linda Workman has allowed Yancey to return home as he awaits for his trial. If this were anyone other than a law enforcement officer they would not receive bond.
In addition, the former sheriff is also taking care of the couple's 8-year old son. Family and friends are outraged at this politicial blunder.
In my opinion, it is likely Yancey will request a bench trial in his home away from home. He will possibly be acquitted by a friendly judge no doubt and be allowed to return to duty.
There is no justice when a system fails to follow the law.
In my expert opinion Judge Anne Workman needs to be removed from the bench where she has just slapped victims like Linda Yancey whose voices have been silenced because of an officer related murder.
As the daughter from a police officers family whose father murdered my own mother, I am outraged!
