  1. I notice Sheriff Beam’s name and number is the only one listed at the bottom of this article. According to your last paper Griffin doesn’t have a real “gang” problem. I am assuming that Sheriff Beam is the only official representative of this county that will tell the truth about this situation. Thanks.
