Herschel Walker denies report he paid for girlfriend’s 2009 abortion

Category: 

A report that Republican candidate Herschel Walker paid for his then-girlfriend’s abortion in 2009 has roiled the high-profile Georgia Senate race.

On Monday evening, had urged his girlfriend to end her pregnancy and included a signed check from Walker to cover the procedure, a receipt from the abortion clinic, a “get well” card from Walker and corroboration with friends of the women, who remained anonymous. Walker has staked out a staunchly anti-abortion position in the campaign, saying the procedure should be banned with no exceptions for rape, incest or the health of the mother.

Walker disputed the Daily Beast’s report in a statement, calling it a “flat-out lie” and saying, “I’m not taking this anymore. I [am] planning to sue the Daily Beast for this defamatory lie. It will be filed tomorrow morning.” Public figures’ lawsuits against media outlets have a high bar of proof in the U.S.; it’s unclear what evidence Walker may offer in court to attempt disproving the report.

When asked about the $700 check during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s primetime Fox News show, Walker said, “I send money to a lot of people,” noting that he gives scholarships and “is always helping people.” Walker said the report was a “flat-out lie” and said it left him “energized.”

What Is Personal Injury in GA?

Category: 

In contrast to material damage, an injury to the body, mind, or emotions is referred to in law as a personal injury. The phrase “personal injury” is most frequently used in common-law jurisdictions to describe a certain category of tort action in which the plaintiff has experienced harm or damage to their physical or mental health.

According to Georgia law, anyone who suffers an injury as a result of the careless or negligent actions of another person or entity has the right to hold that person or entity financially liable for the damages brought on by the injuries. By putting the plaintiff back in the original position they were in before the injuries, damages are meant to make the plaintiff whole. In other words, personal injury lawsuits are brought against the person or entity that engaged in negligence, egregious negligence, reckless behavior, intentional misconduct, or in some circumstances, strict liability, and caused the harm.

Personal Injury Claim in GA

If you were injured in an accident and it was someone else’s responsibility, you can file a personal injury claim in court. It is the official procedure for obtaining payment from the other party that caused your injury.  In Georgia, a personal injury claim rewards those who have been injured in accidents or by societal injustices such as character slander. In these situations, the damaged party is referred to as the plaintiff, while the defendant is the one being sued.

Personal injury claims can take many different forms, including:

Debbie Collier murder: Veteran homicide investigators break down key facts as killer remains at-large

Category: 

Hits: 2

Georgia investigators have made few public statements in the gruesome murder of Debbie Collier, a 59-year-old Athens office manager found naked, burned and clutching a tree at the bottom of a rural embankment earlier this month – but they are expected to reveal more on Friday as the three-week mark approaches.

Collier’s daughter and husband reported her missing on Sept. 10 in Athens. Deputies with the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office found her remains 60 miles away the following afternoon, with “charring” on her stomach.

The daughter, Amanda Bearden, told Athens-Clarke police she received a Venmo payment of $2,385 and the message, “They are not going to let me go love you there is a key to the house in the blue flowerpot by the door.”

Bearden said her mother’s car was in the shop and identified her rental as a Chrysler Pacifica, which Habersham deputies found abandoned off Route 15, a quarter-mile from her body.

The Venmo payment and the fact that Collier’s remains had been partially burned are key clues that detectives are likely dissecting as they make other investigative moves behind the scenes.

The burning, in particular, shows either extreme malice or an attempt to hide evidence, according to Teresa Leto, a retired first-grade homicide detective who served 30 years in the NYPD.

Former MMA Fighter's Chilling Note Might Be Big Clue in Georgia Mom's Murder: Report

Category: 

As police investigate the murder of Georgia woman Debbie Collier, a threatening note allegedly from the boyfriend of Collier’s daughter has emerged.

Collier, 59, of Athens, was reported missing on Sept. 10. The next day, her naked and partially charred body was found in a ravine in a wooded area in Habersham County, about 60 miles from her home.

On the day she went missing, Collier put $2,385 into the Venmo account of her daughter, Amanda Bearden, and wrote a message saying, “They are not going to let me go, love you there is a key to the house in the blue flower pot by the door.”

Two weeks later, no one has been arrested, according to Fox News.

However, a note allegedly written by former amateur MMA fighter Andrew Giegerich and threatening violence has now come to light, according to the New York Post.

“If you or your family ever come near me again I will hurt them,” the note said.

“Have a nice life you lying a** b****. Don’t ever contact me again!!!” the note also said.

The note came to the attention of police during a May 2021 domestic violence investigation involving Bearden and Giegerich.

Violent Crime Is A Collapse Indicator

Everyone I know has a story about the increase in violent crime.

Where a family member lives in Georgia, someone recently opened fire in the middle of an upscale family neighborhood. The culprits fired 13 shots into a Jeep stopped at a traffic light and someone who had stopped for a hot dog at a cafe on the side of the road died by a stray bullet. Three others were injured.

Someone opened fire at a park in a mid-sized town in Pennsylvania where my friend’s grandchildren used to live, bullets flying through a residential neighborhood.

Asheville, North Carolina has double the violent crime rate per capita over the average in the United States. This sleepy, beautiful mountain town is now considered one of the most dangerous cities in America.

These are just a couple of smaller towns and cities.

It’s a drop in the bucket compared to New York City, New Orleans, Chicago, and Memphis. And I’m only naming a few places. Violent crime is increasing dramatically across the country.

According to the article, Guadalupe’s injuries are not life threatening, and she is recovering at a hospital.
 
The great-grandmother was renting the property in Martinez, Georgia, according to an incident report provided by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, and the dog, an American Bulldog Great Pyreness mix, belongs to a woman who co-owns the property with her brother.
 
On Tuesday, about 12:15 p.m., police arrived at the crime site. Columbia County Fire and Rescue officials were already assisting the victims when they arrived at the property.
 
At 6:45 p.m., the baby was brought to a neighboring hospital and pronounced dead.
 
Any animal that bites a person is required by state law to be kept and monitored for ten days. The dog is now being put under quarantine at Columbia County Animal Services, according to The Augusta Chronicle.
 
 
After the baby’s aunt began a GoFundMe campaign to cover her burial expenses, more than 250 people have donated a total of $13,410 as of press time.

Georgia, USA: Governor activates the National Guard

Category: 

After a weekend of violent crimes and an eight-year-old woman being shot in Atlanta, the governor of the US state of Georgia has activated the national guard. Governor Brian Kemp authorized the deployment of 1,000 soldiers, his office said on Monday (local time).

The deployment of the National Guard should enable the police to increase their patrols. Peaceful demonstrations have been hijacked by criminals. “This lawlessness must be ended and order in our capital restored,” said a statement. The National Guard is part of the US Armed Forces Reserve.
Kemp also declared the state of emergency in Georgia. Over the past long holiday weekend, more than 30 people in Georgia were wounded by gunfire. Five people were killed, including the eight-year-old girl.

The eight-year-old died near the fast food restaurant where the African American Rayshard Brooks was allegedly shot by police officers. Since then, demonstrations against police violence have taken place regularly.
The CNN broadcaster reported that a total of six children were killed by gunfire nationwide last weekend, on which Independence Day was celebrated in the United States: the eight-year-old in Atlanta, a boy of the same age in Hoover, Alabama, an eleven-year-old in the capital Washington a seven year old, a 14 year old in Chicago and a six year old in San Francisco.

Since the death of African-American George Floyd in a brutal police operation in Minneapolis at the end of May in the United States, protests against racism and police violence have occurred repeatedly. In Atlanta and elsewhere, the protests were sometimes violent. Kemp criticized the news, according to the violence in Atlanta has increased for weeks.

TRENDING: Young GA Man Shot And Killed During Alleged Citizen’s Arrest; Horrifying Video Just Released

I can’t believe this incident happened back in February, and the investigation just started in April.

According to the report, victim Ahmaud Arbery, 25, was shot dead in the Satilla Shores neighborhood after a confrontation with Gregory McMichael and his son, Travis McMichael. Both of whom were armed, according to the Glynn County Police.

McMichael and son were trying to make a citizen’s arrest, but Arbery’s mother says that the shooting was an “act of racial violence.”

What complicates the case is that McMichael (the father) is a retired investigator in the district attorney’s office. Again, I asked why did it take so long for an investigation to begin in this matter and this won’t help clear things up. Prosecutors claim the two acted within the scope of Georgia’s citizen’s arrest statute.

George E. Barnhill, the Waycross County D.A., recused himself for what would have been a conflict of interest, since McMichael worked in his office and on top of that, despite recusing himself from the case, Barnhill wrote a letter to the police department detailing how Arbery had a criminal past including a conviction for shoplifting and probation violation in 2018, the Times reported.
