Heads will be rolling in Milledgeville

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hit the lottery last week as it was announced that he will not be facing charges for sexual assault, which he can thank the Milledgeville, Georgia police.

With what the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting you can be assured that heads will be rolling.

According to the Gazette, via ProFootballTalk.com, the police botched the investigation from the very instance it was reported by the alleged victim.

It was reported a couple weeks ago that the surveillance tape from the alleged incident took place was destroyed as it was copied over as police failed to secure it.

Now, in addition to that police never secured the alleged crime scene, which allowed a janitor to come in and scrub it down with clorox and pine-sol.

Already Milledgeville police officer Jerry Bash, who took the initial report from the victim, has resigned due to the way he initially handled the claim by the victim.

In the end, if district attorneys want high profile cases to be tried they better make it clear to their police officers that no matter who the claim is about proper protocol must be followed at all time, or there will be serious consequences.

Good night and good luck.
