  1. Their should have been a search warrant before they searched anything of their property since it wasn’t it shouldn’t be used in court. The judge an the state of Georgia an the IRS knows that.

  2. I think it’s got to do with racism is why their in prison. It’s totally ridiculous that they were sent to prison. If, in fact any part is true against them, they should have not been sent to prison but let go and ordered to pay what’s owed in matter of time. what good is it doing anyone them being in prison. Certainly not the ones they owe if any. LET THEM OUT, WE HAVE A CRUEL JUSTICE SYSTEM.
