If Piedmont is closed south of Sidney Marcus, why are the news stations showing southbound traffic on Piedmont accessing the old xway?

Although traffic on Buford Highway and 141 will of course be affected, Brookhaven does not handle any of Interstate 85 even though they’ve annexed land south of 85 so its not like services would be affected as much as they could be. Its a shame even though Brookhaven annexed and gerrymandered a lot of valuable commercial land south of the interstate, DKPD handles all of the interstate which in turn causes unincorporated Dekalb to handle more services with less tax revenue. Can’t always have your cake and eat it too.

I’m not shocked. Brookhaven always wants to seem like they are ahead and dealing with major issues, but believe me they don’t. The only think Brookhaven is great is at media relations. However, they refuse to address the extremely high turn over rate within the police department. They continue to lose officers faster they can keep them.

Larger police departments offer many career growth opportunities not found in small police departments. With small understaffed cities like Brookhaven police careers stagnate. Small departments in these newly created cities also have demanding citizens that have to be catered to. Brookhaven is a great place to start off or spend your last years, but not to learn and grow as a police officer.

A homeless dude that was believed to be smoking crack is alleged to have started the fire.

Maybe some of the pro-development people that declare the local homeless to all be “harmless” will re-think that while stuck on North Druid Hills Road, Buford Highway or Cheshire Bridge.

Thank heavens they did this where they did and not next some people’s homes near the creek– this could have been a real tragedy.

Why a SWAT truck was needed to monitor traffic right outside the front and back door of the police station is beyond me. Why not use that 3 TV command center they showed off last year. Definately an insight into the thinking of the commanders of a police department that was supposed to small, efficient and community friendly. Decision making in the PD needs to be re-evaluated. Seriously, a SWAT truck to monitor traffic when their only responsibility during this traffic emergency was to block an entry ramp.

You have no idea what we’ve been through from the local police and neighborhood patrols. They really are out of control. After threats to shoot our large breed dog, we were repeatedly stalked and staked out- which frankly I could ignore if I had a backyard but I don’t. After officers reached for their weapons on two separate occasions- while we were standing next to our dog, minding his business in his own front yard- it has been extremely terrifying and anxiety inducing to take him out to relieve himself. Not long after arguing with the neighborhood association once again… Read more »

Well evidently the BPD doesn’t think you are normal in the way Brookhaven expects you to to be. Not an opinion, just an observation based on your comments.

Yes.

Having a modern style house apparently means you are a drug dealer.

(I do nonprofit work and my spouse works in finance.)

And having an English Mastiff that is a former therapy dog that brought joy to hospice patients and countless children as well as being an award winning show dog is supposedly a “pit bull on steroids” and is a breed that is going to “kill children”.

Yeah.

If the local busybodies are “right” then I’m happy to be “wrong”.

Actually I think if these people truly followed the teachings of Jesus there would be a lot less problems.

You know if my posts annoy you so much it’s pretty easy to skip over and avoid reading them.

You know what’s not so easy? Avoiding people that regularly encroach on your private property with guns.

This is my very scary former therapy dog (allegedly “a pitbull on steroids”) plotting to “kill children” (because that’s what his breed supposedly does) that is also now apparently guarding my “marijuana” plants (organic heirloom tomato seedlings.)

It must be so horrifying to live near us, I really dont know how some of these busybodies survive. /s

If only some people could listen to the teachings of Jesus.

Or a lot of the New Testament in general.

Clearly a lot of people missed that day in Sunday school when they taught “love thy neighbor”

Saul, maybe the BPD (and certain others) should adjust their definition of what constitutes “normal”. Neither me nor my any of my dogs have ever had a problem with the police, patrols, associations or people in general until moving to Brookhaven- and we’ve lived in and visited a good number of places. After almost two years of harassment we’ve still yet to be charged with anything. Nothing. Nada. Doesn’t this suggest that the problem might not be us? And I apologize that some think this is off topic– but that they are now bringing out SWAT vehicles for mere traffic… Read more »

Is the Brookhaven MARTA lot filling up? Everything north on the Gold and on the Red is filling up. Apparently Northsprings was filled up at 7:20 this morning. Even the never used Chamblee auxiliary lot up the hill near Clairmont is filled up.

If all y’all would just go back to where you came from all would be well.
