Important Message From The DCN About My Work

Folk you need to understand that I video and take photos everywhere I go and I don’t video or take photos to sell copies so that is why I don’t advertise. I do what I do to capture history and to be able to go back and look at the event at home.

Although I video and take photos for myself, I share the videos and photos on The DCN News Blog Online TV  and others get to watch the video for around 30 days and then it is deleted because I would have to pay to keep a certain amount of videos online. Since I don’t get paid to do what I do, I kindly remove them but I also kindly make them available.

I don’t go around recording events that are not at a public location, private events such as funerals and etc. and if and when I do, you best believe I get permission from the folk in charge of the event.

Folk don’t even think you are going to get my videos/photos and sell them to make a profit when it is my property. If you want to make a profit then you are going to pay me for my video/photos and then I will give you the rights to sell them however otherwise no one has permission to sell my videos/photos.

Beginning August 26, 2015 any and all of my videos/photos that I release recorded on or before August 26, I  will have who the copyright belongs to printed on each copy because I put labels on my videos/photos.

For these sources, I am requesting that you name The DCN News Blog Online TV as the source. When I share other sources information, I make the source known.

Nash-Rocky Mount school scores show modest improvement – Rocky Mount Telegram

Report card scores for the 2014-15 school year for Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools show a gradual upward trend in school performance, according to data released Tuesday by the N.C. Department of Public Instruction.

School system officials report that in comparison to the 2013-14 school year, Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools had six schools that exceeded growth during 2014-15 versus two for last year. Another nine schools met growth this year versus six for last year, officials said.

With an increase in the number of schools meeting growth projections and a favorable change in the way that school performance scores are calculated by the state, the system had an overall decrease in the number of “F” rated schools and an increase in the number of “C” rated schools.

Producer aims to honor King’s historic speech – Rocky Mount Telegram

A Broadway producer was in Rocky Mount this week, developing a plan to commemorate the first stage where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech as well as incorporating that legacy into the musical “I Dream” about the civil rights leader’s life.

“The fact that Martin Luther King came here as part of his speaking circuit and essentially used Rocky Mount to test this speech and motivate people prior to D.C. is huge,” said producer Bruce D. Long, president and CEO of Eye Opening Entertainment. “Many times the importance of North Carolina in the civil rights movement is unclear or obscure or overlooked, so I want to raise awareness of that – and the fact that Rocky Mount had such significance is something I want to raise awareness about.

School split isn’t viewed by all as bad proposal – Rocky Mount Telegram

The Political Agitator’s response: Whew the comments after the article though.

In an article in the Aug. 4 paper about the school split, it said that Mayor David Combs has presented a letter to Nash commissioners and to our state lawmakers indicating that the city of Rocky Mount is against the splitting of the school systems along county lines.

Well, that is not true.

Mayor Combs cannot speak for all the citizens of Rocky Mount when he has not surveyed the citizens.

The citizens have not been allowed to vote on this. (Source: Read more)

Voting maps back before NC Supreme Court – WRAL

The Political Agitator’s response: This is just sad, white privilege is just crazy! Black folk and other non-white folk have endured enough racial discrimination over the years. Enough is enough!

Raleigh, N.C. — Eight months after the North Carolina Supreme Court ruled in favor of congressional and legislative voting maps drawn by the Republican-led General Assembly in 2011, the maps were back before the court on Monday.

The U.S. Supreme Court in April ordered the state court to take another look at the maps in light of a decision on an Alabama redistricting case where the justices found lawmakers in that state relied too much on “mechanical” numerical percentages while drawing legislative districts in which blacks comprised a majority of the population.

Not a gang-banger, a good kid: SW Edgecombe athlete shot – WRAL

The Political Agitator’s response: I am still shocked. Quontellas is my son’s classmate and I look forward to supporting him and the guys during football and basketball season. Although I am the official videographer for the varsity basketball games, I also record the football games for myself because I can see what is going on on the field better looking at it through the camera.

Rocky Mount, N.C. — A multi-sport athlete from SouthWest Edgecombe High School was shot early Sunday while he was driving Rocky Mount.

According to police, Quontellas Norwood, 17, was driving in the 1300 block of Leggett Road at about 1:45 a.m when someone in a passing car fired shots into his vehicle.

Norwood crashed, got out and went to a nearby house for help. He told the homeowner there that he had just dropped a friend off at a home nearby when the shots rang out. (Source: Read more)
