Taylor Saulters

Officer Taylor Saulters who was terminated on Saturday for mowing down a fleeing suspect with his police cruiser started his new job on Monday in a neighboring county.

Saulters was hired Monday afternoon by the neighboring Oglethorpe County Sheriff’s Office, according to WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News.

Saulters was terminated on Saturday by the Athens-Clarke County Police Department after the June 1 chase that began when he spotted Timmy Patton who was wanted on a felony warrant.

Saulters drove up on a curb, blowing out one of the vehicle's tires, as Patmon dashed into the street. The officer accelerated again and rammed Patmon from behind with the vehicle's right front bumper.

Patmon was treated at a local hospital for cuts and abrasions. He was booked into the Clarke County jail and charged with obstructing a law enforcement officer. His bail was set at $1,500.

"I am relieved that he was fired,” said Patmon's mother Tammy Brown-Patmon. “Justice was served.”

But Saulters’ attorney, Philip Holloway, confirmed that his client fielded “multiple offers of employment and is now back at work in law enforcement."

“This is a testament to the fact that seasoned veteran law enforcement officials recognize the lawfulness of my client’s actions and the injustice of his termination,” Holloway’s statement to Channel 2 Action News said.

Saulters was a rookie cop who had been with the department for less than a year when he was fired for violating department policy.

“The officer was very adamant that it wasn’t his intention to strike Mr. Patmon," Police Chief Scott Freeman said. “The officer accelerates the vehicle, there is some wheel movement where it appears that steering wheel is being turned to strike Patmon.”

But Holloway argued that his client's actions were well within the law.

“Under the totality of the circumstances Officer Salters’ actions were objectively reasonable."

Saulters did not lose a day of work.

    white male privilege 101

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They would have done the same thing for a black cop who did the same thing, running over a white man, right? Riiight?

    I think not.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Fired Sat. and started Monday. Fukka straight set up an interview on a Sunday. I expect nothing less. Not surprised.

  • joel adams

    Well...
    If he didn't have a warrant: none of this would've happened.
    I'm not concluding the actions of the officer are lawful.
    All these brothers KNOW to do is RUN away from an alleged crime they are accused of .
    Teach your children to live lawfully and be a good citizen in the communities they reside in.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Not surprising at f'ing all.

    For the life of me I do not understand why every other profession has a state/national board that manages and regulates the members of the profession. Doctors, nurse, lawyers, etc. have boards that require continuing education credits, ethics credits, etc. Not these m-fuckers they run unchecked.

  • joel adams

    There's not many if any black cops in oglethorpe county .
    He's a hero to them

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Right....because only criminals are assaulted or murdered by police officers. Words of wisdom...

  • Trace da Ace

    BULLSHIT!!!! How in the hell this bitch ass mud duck gets a new job at a law enforcement when he was fired for damn near killing somebody with his car????? Lawsuits on deck!!!!

  • joel adams

    Comprehending what I meant within what I typed means:
    Exactly what you replied. Take out the word criminals. Stop making excuses for the dumbasses who decide to commit crimes . enjoy your day

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It's almost like they did it to send a message... that they were OK with him hitting that ninja with his squad car.

  • king shun

    i dont give a damn what happen to these criminal minded animals i guess some of yall need to come home with your wife or daughter getting raped or husband head blown off to see that these criminals are not good people

  • Trace da Ace

    what about the innocent ones who do not commit crimes...yet is gunned down by police??

  • joel adams

    Comprehend what I typed .

  • Trace da Ace

    God bless.

  • joel adams

    Lol .
    Hood mentality is real .
    I get your point . regardless of being a felon, having warrants, ...being black is crime. This is oglethorpe county!

  • joel adams

    Thanks.

  • joel adams

    After you called thia stranger to you a "bitch ass mud duck" I don't need YOUR blessing from God
    Smh black people

  • Daryl Campbell

    This is not shocking or surprising! Civil lawsuit would be in order.

  • Trace da Ace

    Ha Ha Ha Ha.......well have a WONDERFUL day.......GOD BLESS.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    This is insane, he should have remained fired. They are eliminating us and trying to eliminate us one by one.This is the third story I've read like this since last Thursday. A white teen in Louisiana ran over a Black man and killed him and he's not being charged because his father is a police officer. The teen even had the audacity to go on social media and bragged about killing a Ninja. The other story was about a former white police officer who ran over this Black child in Mississippi and killed him. White folks have lost their minds in AmeriKKKa.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    He’ll be shootomg an unarmed person soon and they same department that just hired him will back him up on it too.

  • joel adams

    Just combative naturally huh. You win though

  • Crystal W.

    Okay, now this is just INSANE! It's just alright now to run people over then charge them with obstruction?!?! ? HOW? By being a victim of attempted murder? Cop should have been charged with excessive use of force

  • Ghost

    surprise, surprise...smdh

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    disappointed but not surprised.

  • Logan Roberts

    This shyt makes me sick to my stomach.

  • AmericanDream

    You’re born white and male in America and all you have to show for it is a police officer job that you are not even good at performing ? The joke’s on you boy .

  • therealashland

    I’m calling the sheriffs office now to complain. Everyone should . Jjackson@Oglethorpesheriff.org Is the sergeant email

  • cherrypie

    ? He prolly didnt even need to interview...sad. They said just report on Monday morning

  • Trace da Ace

    thats what I am saying!

  • Luv Pitties

    Kill or attempt to kill a ninja =rewarded with unlimited riches and opportunities...
    I swear Satan is just blowing through these hosts once incident at a time, every second he possesses a new white cop , smh

  • BadAss Will

    Of course all fired officers get hired at a different department. Only matter of time he shoot or run someone else over.

  • hi-liter

    Won’t that white skin Do it?

  • hi-liter

    It must be hard out here when you come from white trash, but wayyyy better than being a nig.

  • hi-liter

    He didn’t have to interview they prolly called him and offered it to him saying they needed more white cops to mow over niggas.

  • MsVAllDay

    The problem with that is how many will die or suffer at his hands until he is caught again????

  • peribabes

    WOW

  • peribabes

    my thoughts exactly. like they called it to the teeeee neighboring county and everything. smh

  • Daryl Campbell

    It’s a sad commentary. If you’re aware of any Black Nationalist groups that have a doable plane to discourage or reverse these type of situation, please forward the info.

  • Victor Nathan

    he passed the interview with flying colours....killing a black man.

  • pure_rachet

    Lol. He's not dead though

  • RaginB

    “Ever done anything on the job that black people would consider “brutality”?....you’re hired!!

  • noted24

    I don't see the problem this man has to work and he said he didn't mean to hit the man. What's the issue?

  • Victor Nathan

    sorry, i meant trying to kill a black man

  • Waya Hedia

    "Patmon was treated at a local hospital for cuts and abrasions"

    Not seeing the problem here. He's fine. Wanted on FELONY offenses. Cop got his man. Don't run from the cops.

  • Waya Hedia

    Patmon was treated at a local hospital for cuts and abrasions

  • J2PC

    Not surprised, this could be a blessing in disguise since defense attorneys will know what type of character they are dealing with to protect their accused clients going forth.

    We saw on tape how he has a flawed mentality with impressive ability to willfully lie to other police officers. Thankfully, it is all caught on tape.

    He has done it before & likely capable of being a liar who will break the law with malicious behavior again. -this time he might be more deceitful to cover his butt.

  • Kanyade

    not surprised.

  • nick c

    So many people not taking the job anymore the sheriff is mandated to fill the positions.

  • nick c

    So many people dont want to be cops every department is desperate.

  • Lucky8

    Apparently they liked What they saw, the KKK alive and well in the force,sad

  • Applebootay

    Next thing you know, lynching will be ok again.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Not surprised. We do live in a world of white privilege. SMH!

  • Bonita

    I was just getting ready to type that somebody on here just called this yesterday!

  • cherrypie

    Lol. Sis, whoever it was predicted the future...smh

  • IamAllnatural

    I don’t believe this story. Law Enforcement agencies have a hiring process that takes longer than a weekend. Unless this town has a population of 500 people or less, I doubt he was hired in 2 days.

  • disqus_vTNhfrtBCE

    That’s good. More money to sue him for.

  • TOO REAL

    AT LEAST WE NOW KNOW THAT THE COUNTY THAT HIRED HIM IS RACIST.
