Pinetops NC: I Was Cursed Out And Threatened When I Responded To The Recently Child Abuse Case In Pinetops

But where are all the people at that was posting about the child abuse case but have not said anything about the drug bust on Friday? I guess they are waiting for certain media to report it however it ain’t like they don’t know it to be true.

I was at work on Friday and when I got off I had received a phone call about the bust and then as I was on my way home I received another call about the bust.

Oh well so ya’ll ain’t concerned about the drug bust? You don’t think that was a good thing?

I am waiting too for the media reports because I am going to see how those people who cursed me out and threatened me respond to the reports.

I want total justice whether it be child abuse or drug abuse. Neither is good for Pinetops nor anywhere.

Little no comments on my previous post. But you see this is the problem in our community because folks are afraid to speak out on certain issues because they are afraid to say something that may offend their family or friends but have no problem with cursing and threatening me for posting facts. Oh well!
