Congressman G.K. Butterfield, Milton Toby Fitch, Rep. Shelly Willingham and Sheriff Clee Atkinson have opposition but no Democratic opposition so they will not be on the May Primary Ballot. If Democrats come out we should smoke the Republicans in November General Election.
I told folk to report back to us when they go down to the city and only one person has responded to me but they didn’t do it online where it started.
I love it when I challenge folk trying to help them and save them some embarrassment and then they do not come back and post trues. When they don’t do that it make me look at them some type of way because them folk can be dangerous. You see they will attempt to make you get emotional with them when you tell them what they need to do but at the end of the day I know what I am talking about.
I posted the following video a few days ago, “Rocky Mount NC – Rich Worsinger Director of Energy Resources City of Rocky Mount Talk About Utility Rates Especially January 2018 On City Beat.” When I told Johnny Neal on his page that someone from the city was following the discussion it was Worsinger but not limited to because I had seen him like some of the comments. I told him that when he go down there they would be ready for him. In the video the city said they were reading about what folk were saying on Social Media.
I respond to folk on Social Media because some things folk be saying can be misleading and will give folk false hope. I refuse to be silent on issues allowing folk to be mislead and folk know that is one of the things I talk about a lot folk misleading folk.
I have been in meetings with Worsinger dating back to the 90’s working on utilities and in the late 90’s in a meeting at Truth Tabernacle is when it came out about the ElectriCities issue that Rocky Mount and 31 other cities were a part of.
I know more than what folk think I know and ya’ll gonna learn the day.

The Watch Dog response: I would love to hear from the sheriff’s deputies to see why they were afraid to go in. The deputies responses must be a part of the ongoing conversations as to how to deal with this type of situation. So one question comes to mind, if an armed teacher is not in the area where the shooter is, will they be willing to run in the area just because they are armed? Now I hear all the time how folk have used their bodies as shields to save others in situations like this but again they were already in the area so this mean we have 2 types of thinking. One type is how would one respond if already in the line of fire and then 2 how will one respond going into a situation not knowing the shooter actual location. But I hear that law enforcement supposed to be trained for situations but have they been trained for this type of situation? I would say this type of training should be going on now across the nation because these situations are real.
Four armed officers and years of warnings did nothing to stop Nikolas Cruz from massacring 17 people at a high school.
Not one but four sheriff’s deputies hid behind cars instead of storming Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, Fla., during Wednesday’s school shooting, police claimed Friday — as newly released records revealed the Broward County Sheriff’s Office had received at least 18 calls about the troubled teen over the past decade.
Sources from Coral Springs, Fla., Police Department tell CNN that when its officers arrived on the scene Wednesday, they were shocked to find three Broward County Sheriff’s deputies behind their cars with weapons drawn. (Read more)
Conversation I started on Facebook
Folk we don’t need to be alerting folk where roadblocks are set up. Roadblocks are set up for a reason and we don’t know the reason.
A roadblock could capture someone driving without a license, driving drunk, someone who may have just committed a minor crime or a major one such as a robbery or a murder.
Yes I am guilty of alerting folk about roadblocks but once you learn better you should do better.
So folk I am asking that you do like myself do not report roadblocks in the future.
Let us allow law enforcement to do their jobs.
Now Dream about that part!

Lamarshall Barnes I used to be guilty of that to you are EXACTLY right
William Manley I use to be guilty of it , thats the reason 252 hoodnews kick me out , cause i spoke out againt people telling about road blocks
Curmilus Butch Dancy II Ab so lute ly! That was how I got kicked off too before you did. I was not going to mention them to give them any publicity but since you did I am going to mention them as well.
Michael Glover Sr. You got kicked out too
William Manley Yep Michael Glover Sr.

Jerry Solomon Jr. I disagree by law the roadblocks are supposed to be public knowledge which is why those roadblocks cellphone apps work
Curmilus Butch Dancy II Could you share the law that states such?
Roadblocks cellphone apps can be just like a Scanner on a cell phone but I didn’t question that. I am just stating about someone alerting others.
I sure would hate to alert folk and a murder or robbery took place and because I alerted them they got away.
Jerry Solomon Jr. Usually a manhunt is followed by numerous stories of a murder…half the time they trying to get ticket money
Calvin Adkins Sr. I disagree also. It’s not about money but saving lives. There’s no money made during those campaigns worth the lives of innocent people. Think about this, many of the times drunk drivers have two vehicle accidents the person in the drunk driver kills innocent people. I’ve been blessed that it has not happened to my family.
Curmilus Butch Dancy II I would bet very fews tickets come out of roadblocks and when they do they do not amount to a lot.
I look at it as safety on our highways.
Law enforcement is suppose to protect and serve.
Michael Glover Sr. Thanks Calvin Adkins Sr.

Jerry Solomon Jr. There are statues that state that road blocks are to be publicized and reported 24 to 72 hours in advanced
Curmilus Butch Dancy II So you are saying law enforcement is breaking the law. Again will you share the statues?
Jerry Solomon Jr. No what I’m saying if it is public knowledge it can be shared
Lamarshall Barnes You tell everyone where a road check is one or more of your family gets killed because of you telling about the road check how would you feel

Zeke Jackson In other states, we don’t have roadblocks. We view them as contrary to the 4th amendment and banned police from using them. Absolutely 0 roadblocks in wisconsin
Curmilus Butch Dancy II But who said anything about searches? Searches are illegal without probable cause or a search warrant.
A roadblock and searches are not the same.
Calvin Adkins Sr. MR. Jackson is it true that Wisconsin doesn’t allow soberity test road blocks or absolutely 0 roadblocks. I can’t imagine if a suspected killer us in a neighborhood that law enforcement officials would not set up a road block to attempt to capture him

Curmilus Butch Dancy II Obviously this statue does not apply to general Roadblocks in NC.
Jerry Solomon Jr. It does because that was a federal case which federal law somewhat serves the whole nation

Michael Glover Sr. I agree with you Curmilus Butch Dancy II, just recently edgecombe Co sheriff department confiscated guns and drugs at a check point. These are the same guns ,and drugs that could end up in your neighborhood, on your streets and in your homes then you’ll be mad at the police for not doing anything about guns and drugs. NOW THINK ABOUT THAT
Michael Glover Sr. Thank you, some many people want to show off their education and not their common sense

Curmilus Butch Dancy II I can remember roadblocks since I was a little boy and I am 55 years old so obviously they are illegal or law enforcement has been breaking the law for years.

Michael Glover Sr. If you’re legit then why would a road block even be a problem . Wow
Jerry Solomon Jr. They play they game the reason that they can get away with it is because they have to announce the roadblock and they do it’s just that the public is too lazy to get the info
Michael Glover Sr. Jerry are you bothered by roadblocks
Curmilus Butch Dancy II Jerry Solomon Jr. What?
You say, “They play they game the reason that they can get away with it is because they have to announce the roadblock and they do it’s just that the public is too lazy to get the info”
Jerry Solomon Jr. No sir I’m not bothered by it i am law abiding citizen I just think what you guys are bringing up a point to something that the public has a right to know again by law it is supposed to be announced to the public so if law enforcement is doing there job people would know and should know and if people want to share that info there is no statue saying that it can’t so it’s my preference sir….I have trained with the NC BLET with Martin County so i know some of these weird laws
Jerry Solomon Jr. No to uphold the law both ways sir…the public has the right to know period
Curmilus Butch Dancy II Jerry Solomon Jr. I never said folk couldn’t share I said they ought not to for various reasons. Folk are going to continue to share and I have no control over that. What I do hope is folk who read this post will take the route that I am taking but if …See More
Jerry Solomon Jr. The reasons you stated are unconstitutional sir…Road blocks are to be set up for automobile violations…but using it for crime is unconstitutional until that’s changed your reasons are invalid
Jerry Solomon Jr. Road blocks creates issues for probable cause

Curmilus Butch Dancy II Jerry Solomon Jr. I hope you are not working in law enforcement and/or seeking to because it appears that you have an issue with roadblocks not being announced by law enforcement before they are set up.
I wonder what is your take on undercover work being done by undercover agents. But please don’t respond.
I guess ALE Officers need to warn stores that they are coming in to check them out for selling cigarettes/alcohol to minors.
Oh I am getting ignant now so I need to take a shower and come back later.
Jerry Solomon Jr. I have no hopes to join law enforcement anymore too much corruption sounds like y’all are mad at the law…this is law people….the only issue is that I have is the fact that it’s the law…research it..undercover agents are okay if employed by law enforcement….but I don’t agree with agents trying to setup drug transaction just to arrest somebody a lot of that is going on

Curmilus Butch Dancy II Mad with law enforcement? Really?
Jerry Solomon Jr. No mad with the law that protects people the statue
Jerry Solomon Jr. No I encountered a lot of racism during the course…President Obama was running during that time it was really tough to be honest…and the last straw was the deputies view on the trayvon Martin case it was disgusting th and it hurt and I didn’t want to be apart of it…
Curmilus Butch Dancy II Jerry Solomon Jr. Wow! So what does that have to do with Roadblocks? I have a problem with racism and views on Trayvon Martin and other cases but I can’t link ROADBLOCKS to such.

Curmilus Butch Dancy II I support law enforcement officials until I can prove they have been corrupt. I find no corruption in ROADBLOCKS sir.

The Watch Dog response: Common sense will take care a lot of things if we would just use them. It is clear what the 2nd Amendment states but some try to twist it to push their agenda.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Friday that it’s time to discuss what the Second Amendment “means in the modern world” in light of last week’s mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Ms. Rice, who served under President George W. Bush, said that while the Second Amendment remains “indivisible,” she doesn’t think civilians should have access to guns like the AR-15, which was used by 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz to fatally shoot 17 students and teachers on Valentine’s Day. (Read more)
The focus should be guns entering into the school. Metal detectors and when a gun has entered then there should be a warning going out of the PA System alerting staff, teachers and students what is going on.
If the school systems across the nations have a discussion about carrying guns and everyone has a buying then I would give it some thought. However for the time being the focus need to be on law enforcement being used for what they are designed for to protect and serve.
There are some great concerns about the Buyout and the Rebuilding of Princeville. It has been nearly 2 years and progress has been somewhat slow. But for me I told folk the last time the flood came that it is going to be tough the next time around.
Folk want to preserve the town however all things need to be taken in consideration. The main thing I would think is that if there can be a better dike system and the funds to do it can be obtained is the 1st thing. But that will take a long time.
I think the best thing that came out of the meeting was the conversation around the 4 models that interim Town Manager Gregory Bethea presented as it relates to the Buyout. I totally agree if folk want to consider the buyout then what Bethea presented makes a hell of a lot of sense.
Look at the video and listen carefully to what the Town Manager as to say. He do not live in the town and he will be leaving when a new manager is hired. However I feel that they ought to do whatever they can to keep him until the actual recovery plan model is chosen. Unlike the Princeville Commissioners the interim Town Manager I consider neutral because he is not a resident of the town and will want to do what is best for the residents.

The purpose of law enforcement in the schools have been to basically focus on the inside of the school if I am correct so therefore it appears that the focus need to change to inside and what may come from the outside.
There are some good teacher aides/substitute teachers who sometime can’t pass the test to teach but they are good with students.
Now that just brought something else to my attention, some systems have lots of substitute teachers. So would they be eligible to be armed. But again I ain’t for any teachers being armed so I ain’t going there.
I totally agree all schools need to be protected simply because history and common sense prove such. How many more shootings at a school need to take place to realize such? It is evident.
So for me school safety should be top priority and all aspects of the subject need to be discussed.
I began advocating for students, teachers and parents in the late 80’s long before I had a child in the system. Now that I have not had a child in the system for the past 2 years I think it is time for me to get back involved. I feel advocating for school safety should be a top priority that should come from parents, community and other stakeholders.
Remember these Public Comments. Make sure you follow the outcome of what takes place with the committee especially the folk who are on the committee and will be added to the committee. See how this all unfolds. See what the motives are and why.
I have not had the opportunity to visit the animal shelter yet but gonna shoot for a visit next week. I have heard some things but I like to do my homework.
I will challenge animal lovers, animal haters and others because I see myself as neutral. I don’t own pets the closest I have been to owning pets is raising pigs/hogs for years having atleast 100 or more at a time.
I am looking forward to doing what the County Commissioners will be asking of the committee and not what folk want alone especially folk who have just the animal side in mind and not the rules ie: local ordinances and state laws that the county are governed by.
Do you know who are responsible for the Edgecombe County Animal Shelter?
Do you know how old it is?
I hope to see an Edgecombe County Animal Shelter Website in the future if there is not one. I don’t know what is all going on at the moment because I have not heard anything from the commissioners so therefore I am going to just sit here and wait to work on the committee. However as I stated I will be visiting the Animal Shelter hopefully next week. But if I don’t I got time because I am quite sure the committee will probably go visit as a group in the future.
