Pinetops NC – Jurisdiction Of Pinetops Police Department And Edgecombe County Sheriff Office

Sally Jenkins Street runs to the Pinetops Community Center. The houses to the left of G.W. Carver School Elementary School are in the county and they get their lights from Edgecombe Martin.

I was told that the Pinetops Community Center has been annexed into the city just heard this today. I used to be on the Community Center Board before I resigned years ago. The sources said they thought the others had been annexed but I told them I read in the paper that where the shooting occurred on Saturday morning the report said the residence was 100 yards from the Pinetops City Limits.

South Edgecombe Middle School is not in the Pinetops City Limits either. How well do I know because a former Principal called the police on me after a School PTA meeting and the Pinetops police came and he and I stood outside of the school until the Sheriff Deputy arrived.

Because Sally Jenkins Street is the cut-off for the city limits that means that the Edgecombe County Sheriff Office has the jurisdiction to handle law enforcement issues. Yes Pinetops Police goes to the scene and try to secure it because they can get there quicker. However Pinetops Police Department has even gone out of the city limits to wrecks and other because they could get there before the Edgecombe County Sheriff Office could depending where the Deputy is on this end of the county.

I have been actively engaged in Pinetops Politics over the years so I am knowledgeable of what goes on. When I lived on Bynum Farm Roa growing up until moving after the 199 Flood. I was a little over a mile from the Pinetops City Limits and now I am around 3 miles from the city limits but have a Tarboro address whereby I am around 7 miles out of Tarboro.

I am familiar with there are suppose to be some cameras in Pinetops in certain areas however I know they have them at the stoplights because when my dad had a wreck the young white girl was going to work at Piggly Wiggly and ran the light and hit my dad saying he ran the light. The Pinetops Police Officer looked at video before he came to the wreck.

Now let’s be real. Folk say that things go on in Pinetops that the Police Department need to be addressing even inside the city limits but it appears they wait on the Edgecombe County Sheriff Office to come in. Maybe it is time that there are some conversations about the need for small towns like Pinetops that are paying their officers more than what the Sheriff Deputies are getting paid from what I hear, that maybe something need to be done differently. Hell if you think about it you see Edgecombe County Sheriff Deputies in Pinetops often during the day and night.

But let’s not forget that the community plays a major role in solving crimes especially victims of crimes. If these folk do not cooperate then it makes it hard for Law Enforcement to solve crimes.

Maybe the citizens in Pinetops need to attend the Pinetops Town Hall meetings that are on the 1st Tuesday each month to discuss your concerns as it relates to cameras and other however again know that he citizens have a role to play to.

Folk you better wake up and be mindful as to what is going on in your town and in Edgecombe County because there are some hidden agendas when it comes to Race Relations and now is the time to talk about it while we are in this season.

I understand there has been some mess posted on Tarboro 27886 Facebook Page about the following, Edgecombe County Sheriff Office Report Shooting In Pinetops NC Around 2:00 AM This Morning June 20, 2020.I am in Facebook Jail til July 3 so I have to respond to mess on my Blog which goes to my Twitter and LinkedIn pages as well. You better follow me off of Facebook because you will be glad that you did.

The Political Agitator’s response: So Van Holland and others I have not seen you call the Police Department out yet so obviously it must me a Democrat vs Republican thing trying to discredit the Governor because he has Republican opposition.

What GREAT opportunities and support! Many thanks for the invitation to savor some of Bryce’s CoolKidz Smoothies this past Saturday. It’s obvious that the officers enjoyed not only these tasty treats, but the fellowship as well.

We also had several food deliveries last week. Overstreet Heating and Air Conditioning dropped off a stack of pizzas from Pizza Inn and the following day Shelly, Maddox, Alyssa, and Amelia dropped off another stack of pizzas from Pizza Inn. The timing was great as we were able to feed several different shifts to help spread the love.

In addition, earlier in the week Doug dropped off some special guest cards from Highway 55 to be exchanged for burgers.

You guys are A.W.E.S.O.M.E…….

Hell Yeah Black Lives Matter So Don’t Put Me In A Box With Those Who Lives May Not Matter To Them

The Political Agitator’s response: Black Lives Matter To Blacks. I have seen change and will continue to see change. My wife woke me up around 2:00 AM saying that around 5 police cars just passed by our house headed to Pinetops. I hate I can’t get Edgecombe County on my scanner on my phone anymore so I have to wait til somebody post on Facebook what is going on. I am will not be apologetic for what some Black folk are doing committing crimes and other when I have been advocating on behalf of Black folk since the late 80’s. I know a hell of a lot more folk who are know their Black Life Matter than I do that group of folk who are out here gang banging and other. Hell yeah I want others to value my life because I value mines, now those who don’t value their life that is their problem. Hell yeah I want others to respect me and I am going to respect them. I don’t fit in the category of those who take their own lives. I know my worth and those who don’t know theirs is a their problem. Hell yeah there is systemic oppressions, depressions and regressions and other. Hell yeah I am going to point the fingers where the fingers need to be pointed. I have not pulled a trigger and killed no one. You are ab so damn lute ly correct I know better so therefore I continue advocating trying to make Edgecombe County a better place to live work and play and I will not be put in a category with those who choose to do otherwise. What folk need to stop is stop turning a blind eye to what is going on with their children, their family members, their neighbors and whatever when they know things are going on in their own homes and neighborhoods. Pinetops ain’t new to shootings hell I can name many over the years ranging from folk shooting themselves and shooting others. A coupe of weeks ago it was a shooting where the camera downtown Pinetops caught one of the cars that had been involved in a shooting and 2 guys were shot and had to be taken to Greenville. Just last week I got a call about was there a shooting down by my house. It happened at 111/122 about 2 miles out of Pinetops just before you get to my house and the victim’s house. A 70 year old female was shot due to retaliation from some guys beefing from what I heard. Now on last night 4 shot 2 dead, 1 in critical condition and 1 refused medical treatment. I remember several years ago about 200 – 300 yards from the shooting on last night there was a shooting at the Community Center and a male was shot and killed. Well I had recently resigned from the Community Center Board because I had made some forms so that when someone rented to center for an event that they had to have an officer present and etc. Well that was not done and no police was at the scene during the time that male was shot and killed. I have been advocating for trying to make our community better by serving on the Community Center Board and also when we had the group called P.A.I.R. that we had activities for young folk and this was long before my children were born. I committed my life to being a voice for the young folk and the elderly back in the late 80’s and still doing so today. This is why I get offensive when folk say things as if all Black Folk are in the same category. I used to attend the Pinetops Town Hall meetings monthly over the years and I didn’t even live in the city limits and never have but I was there trying to help make Pinetops a better place to live, work and play. Hell I used challenge Carver School and South Edgecombe School systems to treat our children right again long before I had a child in the system. So in my closing, now is the time for some folk in Pinetops to come together, utilize the Pinetops Community Center and/or Pines Chapel Church and bring the community together and to challenge them to get involved and say they will not tolerate mess going on in their neighborhood.

Warning lengthy…..

Until black lives matter to blacks, change will not happen. Waking up to a call that a shooting happened behind your mother’s home and 2 black lives were taken by blacks did not sit well with me this morning. To hear your mother say, “I heard about 80 shots,” did not sit well with me this morning. But God reminded me to be quick to hear, slow to anger and slow to speak. I have vented, cried, and prayed. We want others to value us, yet we don’t value us. We want others to respect us, yet we don’t respect us. We want others to spare our lives, yet we take our own lives. We DON’T know our worth. And don’t tell me about systemic oppressions, depressions and regressions and anything else. We point fingers at OTHERS, yet it’s OUR fingers pulling the triggers as well. When we know better, we should do better. This has to stop, and it has to stop now. I’m sincerely praying for the families of those 2 young men that lost their lives last night, and thanking God that my mom and aunt did not become a casualty of that war.

Raleigh NC – Governor Roy Cooper Ordered Confederate Monuments On The Capitol Grounds To Be Moved To Protect Public Safety

Governor Roy Cooper

I have ordered the Confederate monuments on the Capitol grounds be moved to protect public safety. I am concerned about the dangerous efforts to pull down and carry off large, heavy statues and the strong potential for violent clashes at the site. If the legislature had repealed their 2015 law that puts up legal roadblocks to removal we could have avoided the dangerous incidents of last night.

Monuments to white supremacy don’t belong in places of allegiance, and it’s past time that these painful memorials be moved in a legal, safe way. – RC

Edgecombe County Sheriff Office Report Shooting In Pinetops NC Around 2:00 AM This Morning June 20, 2020

The Political Agitator’s response: First of all thank you Edgecombe County Sheriff Office for working the county. I am pondering this happened 100 yards from the town limits across from Carver Park Cemetery and problem about 200 – 300 yards from the Pinetops City Limits. I will address that later. But for now I want to address Scott King We’re is the black lives matter protesters?” Why should there be a protest? What is it to protest? I am going to help you with your ignance. The protests the officers were caught on video murdering folk. Well in this case there is no video and I don’t see an arrest made. However although the police were on video they were not immediately arrested so there is the difference. Now do you know who is responsible for the shooting? If you do then start the protest.

I Have Watched 2 Videos With Kenneth Arrington, TJ Walker, Antwoine Brown & Some Others That Was Moderated By J. Russell Harris Stemming From George Floyd And Others Death

I am glad to see the brother talking but what tickles the hell out of me is that with all that has been going on locally brothers were not actively engaged. There has been issues going on in the school system and governmental meetings. There has been crime going on.

What I noticed is that there were very little talk about what is going on locally.

I find it very interesting that Kenneth Arrington said he has a problem with it appearing that the older folk have a problem with the younger folk getting involved. Oh hell no speaking for me and I know I can speak for others, I welcome young folk getting involved. I welcome it because I feel like young folk can attract younger folk.

Someone said it appears that older folk are intimidated by younger folk. Oh hell no! What young folk must recognize and understand that you must put in the work and not think you can just come to the table as if you have figured something out and got all the answers. Hell I been doing been a community and political activist since the late 80’s, a Life Fully Paid Member of the Rocky Mount NAACP, a Democratic Party Precinct Chair and served on the County Executive Committee since the 90’s, 1st Vice Chair N.E.E.D. Inc. and served on numerous committees and attended many of community meetings. Hell I have resigned from more meetings that many have been engaged in. I ain’t got time for b.s. and don’t need a group of folk who are talking among themselves and not attending meetings speaking out where things need to be said while speaking out making change.

Problem if you gonna be a leader you have to make things happen and not wait on folk. That can be done as individual as well. You know what is right and wrong so if you do what is right then things will fall in place.

Somebody said this about others, if their name is not on it they don’t want to be involved. But look at this set up of these 2 meetings. How did you pick the folk to be on the panel? Folk sometimes pick their friends and not those who have been on the ground putting in the work.

Brown is right on point. When I first came out into politics I was the youngest person and the old guards gave me hell. I was determined I would not allow them to run me away. I seen a lot of young folk come and go because they couldn’t handle the heat.

When folk recognize and understand that when Black folk do better all folk benefit. So why get caught up with attempting to speak or include white and other folk they can stand for themselves. It is like when White folk and other folk say why Black folk ought not do this and do that? Well if Black folk have to fight for what they want then why should I have to fight White and other folk battles?

What tickles me is none of the panelists have been actively engaged in anything that has been going on in Rocky Mount since I have been out here since the late 80’s. Some of you probably won’t even born or if so you were kids.

I welcome you guys doing what you do but do what you do and don’t try to call out what the older guards have done when you have not been at the table and have not talked to us.

Anyone that say that Black Folk are playing the Race Card because we have no problem with calling out Special Cs they have not been paying attention, they are ignant to what is going on around them and/or don’t give a damn. I don’t play cards at all so I ain’t the damn one.

While Caucasians and other races are joining with Black Folk who want justice, equality and equity for all, some Black Folk are saying mess as if the old guards have a problem with working with Caucasians. I have been working with Caucasians every since I became a community and political activist.of I joined Black Workers for Justice in the late 80’s it was and still is a make up of all races, when I joined the NAACP in 1992 it was and still is a make up of Caucasians, when I joined the Democratic Party it was and still is a make up of Caucasians.

I welcome young folk getting involved but they will not disrespect me and the work I have done over the years. Folk don’t have to call my name but when they say certain things that I can relate to what I have been doing over the years putting in the work not getting paid utilizing my resources ie: cameras, time and etc. I know what I have done over the years and it is documented in the minutes at the meetings, on camera and etc.

If you want to get involved then respect the old guards. Do your own homework so when you speak out you will not make a fool of yourself.

I want to close by saying I seen what was going on in Edgecombe County as it related to injustices back in the late 80’s and I said I was going to dedicate my life to being a voice for the young and the elderly. I had to find the local NAACP. I made some major changes within the local organization because the old guards were not having elections and I made them start having them. When I joined the Edgecombe County Democratic Party it was race war and we used to fight it out in the meetings because majority Caucasians held offices within the party and we said that the population of Caucasians to Blacks were going to change and we were going to be the majority so the offices will begin to reflect such. They didn’t want to give up their seats and power so that is why we are where we are today when it comes to Blacks holding the majority on the Edgecombe County School Board, Edgecombe County Commissioners, Rocky Mount City Council and some other boards and committees.

I am good at what I do because I used to go to NAACP meetings in Tarboro, Wilson and Pitt County monthly although we met monthly in Rocky Mount. I also went to the Democratic Party meetings in those counties almost monthly as well. This is not counting other meetings around the county and across the state. I have served on the State NAACP Executive Committee as the Publicity Chair under the leadership of Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II. I played a major role in getting him elected in 2005 at the State Convention in Greensboro and Rev. Al Sharpton was our speaker for the convention.

My Bio speaks to some of the things I have done over the years so hell yeah I get defensive when folk say mess when I can back up what I have done over the years. I will not allow folk to say mess when I know it is half-trues and/or lies.

I support young folk but I will not support young folk who want to make a name for themselves and want to take advantage of the season.

I am The Political Agitator A Professional.

Demonstrators remove two statues from Confederate monument outside North Carolina Capitol building

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) — Demonstrators climbed and successfully removed two statues from the Confederate monument outside of the North Carolina Capitol building on Friday evening.

After marching in celebration of Juneteeth, the day commemorating the end of slavery in the United States, demonstrators threw yellow ropes around two of the statues on the 75-foot tall Confederate monument on the ground of the North Carolina State Capitol. The demonstrators then pulled on the ropes–one of the statues swaying–but neither figure fell.

Police officers then intervened, preventing the demonstrators from completely pulling the statue down before leaving the site.

On a second attempt, demonstrators returned to the monument and successfully removed both statues before dragging them down W. Hargett Street. One Confederate statue is now hanging from a light post along W. Hargett Street and another on the steps of the Wake County courthouse. (Read more)
