Jackie Barrett is the Fulton County, Georgia sheriff who imposed reverse
discrimination on the white officers in her department. Ms. Barrett is a black
female who was elected to the Sheriffs job as a democrat.
The Court found that Ms. Barrett and the Fulton County, Georgia Sheriffs department
were guilty of practicing reverse discrimination and anti-white
diversity policies in this Georgia police department. The Court found that Ms.
Barretts policies systematically excluded qualified non-minority
employees of the department from advancement solely for racial reasons.
Update September 2004
Sheriff Jackie Barrett of Fulton County GA
was suspened by Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue in September 2004 for stealing money from the
taxpayers of Fulton County. Ms. Barrett is currently under investigation by the IRS
and the U.S. Department of Justice.
Court found in favor of the 16 non-minority complainants, and has directed
that they be paid $812,000 in damages (which amount includes $180,000
in punitive damages assessed against the Fulton County Marshalls Department).
Fulton County, Georgia officials have stated for the record that "If the $180,000
punitive damage award is allowed to stand, we think Sheriff Jackie Barrett should have to
pay this amount out of her personal funds."
6, 1996: Appeal by Fulton County, seeking to overturn the Judges
finding of reverse discrimination against the 16 non-minority officers. Fulton
County democrats felt so strongly about this issue that they spent $244,000 of taxpayer
funds opposing and appealling the Judges Order against Fulton County. Hmm.
Using your tax dollars to fight against your constitutional rights... it
doesn't sound right, does it?
17, 1996: Fulton County Commissioner Mitch Skandalakis has publicly stated
that the black, female Sheriff, Ms. Jackie Barrett, who bears the responsibility for the
reverse discrimination policies against the 16 officers, should be required to
pay the $180,000 punitive damage award out of her own pocket!
Well, Ms. Sheriff Jackie Barrett, it seems that your reverse discrimination is
going to cost you a lot of money! We hope that your unconstitutional, prejudiced
management style has a significant, negative impact on your paycheck!
It was an election year for the Fulton County Sheriff, and the bombing incident at the
Olympics that summer overshadowed the local reportage of the Sheriff's contest and the
"reverse racism" issues. While the bombing was a tragedy that certainly
deserved wide news coverage, it is too bad that Ms. Jackie Barrett's racist vendetta
against white officers was overlooked during all the press coverage of the bombing.
Regrettably, she was re-elected.
