only in liberty county can a man who had sex with, and got a 15 year old girl pregnant get elected to the board of education in the county that he got fired in for it. what is wrong with the voters here?

keep in mind he was a substitute teacher and she was a student. with 6 years difference between them.

timeontarget commented on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 07:37 AM Uh just who are we talking about.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 08:46 AM Ditto Tot. Who is this person? I guess we can look at who the males are on the BOE and speculate...

Funkentelecky commented on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 08:58 AM Ok, gacpi time to finish opening up the can of worms.

gacpl commented on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 09:13 AM it was ran in the paper a few years ago, marcus scott. all the article have been removed from the archives for some reason, except this one.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 10:20 AM Wow!!! I read the link. Isn't that called statutory rape? What is the age of consent in Georgia? It appears somebody or somebodieS dropped the ball.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 14:47 PM As best as I can tell, 16 years of age is the age of consent in Georgia. So, this man is guilty of statutory rape per Georgia law if he had sex with his 15 year old student and fathered a child with her. And he is going to be on the Board of Education??!!! It doesn't matter that the offspring of this violation is living with the perpetrator. A crime has been committed and it seems that he is flying quite successfully under the radar of being classified a registered sex offender.

What yall want to do about it?

This looks ridiculous to me.

gacpl has shined a light on this 'offender'. It now MUST be pursued.

Sheran commented on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 18:11 PM Sounds like a cover up to me!

JimmyMack commented on Monday, May 26, 2014 at 12:39 PM It is worse. It is an IN YOUR FACE cheap shot by the powers that be to everyone in this county. If this can fly then it is further proof that the powers that be can do and anything they wish and nothing can be done about it.

Sheran commented on Monday, May 26, 2014 at 13:00 PM Know anybody @ WTOC?

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at 16:17 PM I am pondering what to do. I want to know the whole thing about this guy. I do KNOW that I do not like child rapists and pedophiles. If we have one on the School Board and it is tolerated by the Powers that Be...then we will have to contact Atlanta and take it from there.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 09:34 AM What does our County News Organ - The Coastal Courier think about this situation? Has a crime been committed and gone unpunished? Should Mr. Scott be classified as a registered Sex Offender in Georgia? What is the BOE Chairman's view regarding this man? What does our Superintendent of Schools have to say? SOMEBODY has got to get these people on record. This is NOT an unserious event!!! It could get very ugly if it is not looked into locally.

gacpl has shined the light on this matter and our community leaders MUST pursue it or we, the people, MUST go to the State and Federal levels to seek resolution of what appears for all intents and purposes a mis-carriage of justice and perhaps malfeasance of Office regarding our elected officials.

I will not let this blog get buried until we know the truth! Our childen deseve that.

timeontarget commented on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 07:56 AM

Sheran it is good of you to want to shine more light on this matter.

The awful truth is that I suspect there will never be anything done about it.

I would suggest that you start by going before the current Grand Jury or the next one.

And you could attempt to bring Mr Scott back to the voters with a recall petition.

timeontarget commented on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 08:06 AM

The real non performer in this case is our county organ The Coastal Courier who simply did not fulfill their duty.
They should have been on top of this from the moment he qualified.

Our fourth estate continues on all levels State, National and local to fail.

As the media declines to function as a watchdog so does society continue to slide into the pit of mud.

As we continue to embrace tolerance of all kinds of deviant behaving and lack of discipline we will continue on our path of degeneration.

Sheran I thank you for your concern anyway.

Good Luck.

I just went back to gacpl's blog and read this link so I guess you could say that the Courier did in fact bring it to the public's attention.

It appears to me that there probably nothing that could or perhaps should be done about this at this point.

timeontarget commented on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 08:25 AM

My apologies to Alena Parker and The Coastal Courier for my comments in my response above May 29, 2014 at 08:06 AM.

I think that is what bothers me most. It doesn't matter what color he is, it is wrong. I give a hoot about any civic activities he is involved in as this should have zero bearing on the issue. Once again we all kow tow so as not to be considered racist. Ignorance is color blind and this cat has no business being anywhere around children,

timeontarget commented on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 12:10 PM

HMJC you are correct.

The issue here is society's ever increasing tolerance of acts once thought to be wrong.

The enemy is liberalism.

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 14:17 PM

@Sheran. First, let me get this out of my system: Tot, of course, is an idiot beyond measure. He has successfully eluded cognitive enhancement through out his life and now in his aging frightened existence can only come to terms with the world thru blanket blame finger pointing at the 'Demon Liberal.' Tot's inane comments like the one above: "the enemy is liberalism", rises only to the level of creating a possible distraction to others trying to do the right thing as you are doing here Sheran by keeping this story alive rather than letting it die on the vine.

As you may be aware, I took it upon myself to out Robert Edward Weil, case number: 88R5415, convicted on six counts of aggravated child molestation and sentence to 20 years in prison but only served 7. Be-Bop Bobby also had escaped being on the Georgia State Sex Offender Registry since the Registry was established AFTER Bobby's incarceration for sex crimes, and it WAS NOT RETROACTIVE. Bob-o was and is still flying under the radar on Facebook having only altered his profile since I sent them all the information I had gathered thru assembling all the pertinent documents from the Clerk of Courts Office and sending it to them. It seems even Pedophiles have 'rights' beyond the reach of the law. Even after talking to two detectives, and the Sheriff Bobby, it seems, is beyond their reach and cannot be prosecuted or legally pursued for 'trolling' on Facebook. I was left to only making the public aware of this Convicted Pedophile and proceeded to do so here, contacting Facebook, and Westside Baptist Pastor where Bobby comes into contact with children by virtue of his presence there.

HMJC may be right and it burns me to know end that this BOE member just maybe out of our reach, save for shining the public light on him and those of his ilk at every opportunity presented us.

We just can't let the malignant malaise of the impotent name callers like Tot, impede our efforts to do the right thing as far as we can do so within the confines of the law and reasonable behavior on our parts.

I will pursue the links you provided and see what turns up. You, Sheran, are performing a public service and I support you all the way.

Warm Regards,

Jimmy Darsey, Liberal Democrat.

Sheran commented on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 20:54 PM

I was worried about highjacking gacpl's blog! WOW, I don't live in Liberty county, but I still look after all children. What difference does it make if you vote Republican or Democrat? We are adults that are suppose to look after our future witch is our children... Does anyone watch the news? McIntosh & Bullock counties has scandals going on with teachers and students. At least Jimmy and I are trying... We Need Your Support!

EyesonHinesville commented on Friday, May 30, 2014 at 06:56 AM

A letter to the editor (to be published in the paper) would be a good way to spotlight this. Most citizens do not read these blogs. Putting it in the public would force Scott into some kind of damage control. Make him respond. Another question I have is how the GA Professional Standards Commission has issued him a clear renewable certificate without any ethics violations. I would consider an adult male sleeping with a fifteen year old student an ethic violation. Scott has been working with the youth of the community for years..."Scotts AllStars", administration in school, radio host on education. I can't wrap my mind around ANYONE willingly allowing a known sex offender to work with children, I am hoping that most just do not know about it.

JimmyMack commented on Friday, May 30, 2014 at 11:22 AM

Good advice, Eyes!

JimmyMack commented on Friday, May 30, 2014 at 12:53 PM

And...never thought I would say this but this situation may call for some Sound Off's to be called in at 876-3733 in order to get and keep this issue in the public eye. I suggest that those who might pursue this avenue of expression carefully write out before hand what it is you wish to say. You do not have to call out Marcus Scott by name, nor use any libelous type language, but can ask generic type questions regarding the facts already on record thru the Courier article above in your question. You may wish to call out the Chairman of The BoE, Lily Baker and ask if she is aware of the backgrounds of all those elected to the Board? Is the Superintendent of Schools Dr. Valya Lee aware of same? etc. etc.
Those are innocent non-defamatory questions. You are just looking for answers here.

You do NOT have to give your name and it is an avenue of public expression we should take advantage of in this particular incidence.

Hit the phones!! Create an ongoing tsunami of public concern. This whole effort may take a while, so prepare for the long haul.

Remember the Children!!!

JimmyMack commented on Friday, May 30, 2014 at 14:47 PM

Gathering my facts to initiate an accurate letter to the Editor. Called BOE and found out that it BOE DISTRICT 5 that Marcus Scott was elected to and not District 3 as reported by the Courier article above.

I will devote the necessary time to write an accurate letter to Editor of the Courier regarding this situation and sign my name. It will be up to the Courier to decide whether or not it gets any ink and when it will or will not appear in the Courier. I will keep those concerned posted.

JimmyMack commented on Friday, May 30, 2014 at 17:27 PM

Yes we CAN do something. We must not withdraw into the defeatist posture that 'nothing can be done.' If DO that, then we as a society have given up and I am not ready to do that.

However, Sebe my friend, you are RIGHT ON regarding 'deciding to forget the past.' The transgressions and damage done by the Bush Administrations should stay in the psyche of all Americans for generations to come.

At the risk of being perceived as trite: the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for a few good people to do and say nothing.

I am not going to shut up.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jun 02, 2014 at 14:05 PM

Just emailed letter to the Editor. The decision to print or not to print is in their hands.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jun 02, 2014 at 16:56 PM

I tried pasteing a copy of the letter here but it appears that the max number of characters that can be posted here cannot exceed 3000 characters. My letter has 3336. I am not sure how to break it into but will try. If you desire a copy send me a private message thru this site with your email and I will be glad to send you a copy. Again, it is up to the Courier to print or not print the letter.

Sheran commented on Monday, Jun 02, 2014 at 17:16 PM

Copy and paste 1/2 of the letter and post, than go back and copy paste the other 1/2 and post!

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jun 02, 2014 at 17:47 PM

Thanks Sheran, I will attempt to do so.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jun 02, 2014 at 18:03 PM

Dear Editor,
This is a letter written to address some of the concerns that I feel need to be publicly addressed in regards to the election of one Marcus Scott to the Liberty Board of Education from District 5. I, personally, am in a quandary as to what were the voters in District 5 thinking when they put this man in a position of authority over their children. Certain issues regarding this man demand further scrutiny.

The Coastal Courier ran a story on this man June 21, 2008 prior to an unsuccessful run for a BOE seat by Mr. Scott and from which I will provide quotes and reference. Per the Coastal Courier story: "...Scott was fired from his eighth grade teaching position for previous sexual misconduct with a 15 year-old girl." The age of consent in Georgia is 16, so Mr. Scott essentially in the eyes of the law should have been charged with statutory rape for his sexual transgressions, but somehow he eluded charges. My questions are: how is that possible?!! What law enforcement agency investigated this and what were their findings? How did this man circumvent the criminal justice system? Why was Mr. Scott not classified a Sex Offender? How was he able to remain in the classroom even if in another county? Why did the people of the 5th District put this man in a position of authority in regards to children by electing him as their representative on the BOE? Where is their outrage and more importantly where lies their collective conscience?

To quote Mr. Scott from the Courier article: "That's something, of course, that I knew would come up. Everybody does stuff that they're not proud of." Excuse Me!!! Yes, Mr. Scott, not one of us is sinless and many of us have done things we were not proud of, including myself. The difference though is that the vast majority of us do not have sex with children. Your glossing over of your actions with the excuse of "everybody does stuff that they're not proud of" is pathetic and patronizing in its absurdity.

End of Pt. 1

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jun 02, 2014 at 18:23 PM

Pt. 2

Regardless of his many academic accomplishments, those accomplishments in no way excuse him nor lend credibility to his having a seat on the BOE in lieu of his past sexual transgression with a minor child. Rather, it should EXCLUDE him from being on the BOE.

Food for thought to the fifth district voters who placed this man in position of authority over your children. Consider this potential scenario. Let us contemplate that an Educational Bill of legislation is before our State Legislature and an opportunity comes up for some select students including males and females, to attend the legislative session with a trip to Atlanta. (This is NOT an inconceivable possibility.) The trip to Atlanta entails an overnight stay in one of Atlanta's many Hotels with the students required to be accompanied by a chaperone. What if that chaperone is a BOE member and that BOE member is Marcus Scott?

If the voters of the fifth District are comfortable with this scenario possibly coming to fruition then Mr. Scott is their man. If they are not comfortable with it then, where is their outrage? Where has their reasoning gone? What sort of twisted reasoning exists that any parent would place their female child in such a situation?

Finally, I only wish to know is if the word RECALL is in the vocabulary of the voters in the Fifth District BoE?

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Jun 02, 2014 at 18:25 PM

There...I think I got it. Thanks Sheran. Now let us hope the Courier gives it ink.

We now need beaucoup soundoffs!!!!
