District attorney sends cease & desist letters to sweepstakes locations – WITN

Beaufort County D.A. Seth Edwards says 24 businesses in Beaufort, Hyde, Martin, Tyrrell, and Washington counties were personally served with the letters this week.

He said the cease and desist letters should serve as a warning to the internet cafe and sweepstakes businesses in the Second Judicial District.

Edwards and North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement agents delivered the letters.

The D.A. said not only are the games illegal, but they also attract violent crime, including armed robberies and the recent shooting death of a robber at Players Vape in Washington.

“It’s one thing to lose an entire paycheck playing these illegal games,” said Edwards, “but it’s another to lose a life. This is no longer just a moral or ethical issue-it has become an issue of public safety and one that cannot be overlooked,” he said.

The sweepstakes locations have been controversial and there has been uncertainty about their legality. They are widespread in some Eastern Carolina counties. (Read more)

Rocky Mount NC – Samuel Battle Voter’s Registration Shows Inactive

Sad Sam Battle could not vote for Tarrick Pittman nor Sandy Claus Roberson because he is listed Inactive on the Edgecombe County Board of Elections Website.

It is funny as hell to me how the Special Cs has Sam and Tarrick a part of their team being their spokespersons and in the Black community. But what is even more funny is the Black Folk who are listening to these guys.

It is sad when Black Folk team up with the Special Cs who have a WSBS agenda.

I keep hearing about a couple of young Black Males running around talking about the role of the Millennium. They talking about teaming up with the Special Cs talking about Unity. Really!

Well all I got to say is folk better watch what is going on around them because there are a couple of movements going on.

Fact check the movements that are going on to see what kind of tract record exist.

When you have Special Cs targeting these Black guys and the Black Community, Black Folk ought to be outraged.
