This Sheriff and his machine friends like Dennis Worley and the Gores must go. They are clearly mad at Mr. David as he will not let them continue to sweep dirt and take bribes. Think about it. Batten and the local establishment wanted someone local in the DA's office and not someone that was not previously with the program. I recall 6 past sheriffs of Columbus County. Batten is far more corrupt and far worse than Sheriff Bill Rhodes. Bill was removed by the Feds and I predict Batten will soon be. Only a handful has enjoyed justice in Columbus and it has been the handful supporting the campaigns of Sheriff Batten, Bill Gore, Rex Gore and a few County Commissioners. Batten and his best friends Buddy Byrd(crop fraud and Col Cor thug) and Edwin "sniffer" Russ have got by with way too much. Any DA they have an issue with is a good DA I am sure.
Columbus Corruption continues under Sheriff Chris Batten. Coming soon to a federal facility near you, "Batten goes to jail."
