SouthWest Edgecombe High School Really? Teacher Arrested For Possession of Meth, Drug Paraphernalia & Obtaining Property By False Pretense

Someone sent this to my inbox and I think I seen it on Fighting Crime but I can’t find it now. It is obvious that some LEA members report to this page information before it hits otherwise so why nothing about this. Interesting!

But then again it may have been on Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens too I can’t see their page.

So where is the conversation about this?

I was told that the teacher is suspended. Really?

I heard the teacher was back at the school with her child the following day so why was the teacher allowed on campus?

This is something serious here. Where is the outrage? Oh because this is not a Black, Brown or Hispanic.
