Former Rocky Mount police chief to lead ECSU police – Rocky Mount Telegram

Former Rocky Mount Police Chief John Manley was named Thursday as the new police chief of Elizabeth City State University.

Manley, ECSU’s interim police chief since May, replaces Sam Beamon, who resigned several weeks after being placed on administrative leave April 25.

Beamon left the department after the State Bureau of Investigation began investigating allegations on the campus of obstruction of justice and intimidation of a witness. (More)

John Manley For Rocky Mount City Council Ward 1 Challenging Incumbent Andre Knight, But Why?

I am still trying to figure out why Manley is running from a political stand point but I get it from a personal standpoint. I know damn well he is not blind to what the political climate is in Rocky Mount as it relates to RACE. He know quite well how Knight has been a target by the racist white folks who do not want an outspoken black man speaking truth to power publicly.

Manley has benefited from the works of Knight so what in the hell is his problem? Why is he playing right into the hands of the current racist white folks such as WHIG – TV and some of their strong supporters including Mark Bowling who is in prison and Jerry Fisher who used to co-host a morning show to talk about Knight and still on the scene daily. Watch the WHIG – TV Morning Show daily and see what they talk about or should I say who they talk about almost daily. And then you have some ignant black folks whom have ran against Knight trying to unseat him when they too have benefited from his works.

Manley one does not have to be retired to be dedicated to doing the work of the city council. The majority of the council are working folks and the majority of other boards and commissions are working folks.

Damn Manley you are out of touch if you do not understand the importance of blocking the merger of Duke Energy and Progress Energy. Obviously the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission thinks it is a problem because they have denied the merger twice.

I am glad Manley realize racism exist but to think it is not in the forefront of every issue in Rocky Mount as it relates to the City Council is just ignant as hell. You see Manley I was in a Common Ground meeting Lewis Turner, Andre Knight before he became a councilman and myself along with several whites and a white person said that some whites said they were going to move out of Rocky Mount if the council became a black majority. Well some moved however even those few they are still trying to run the city although it is a black majority. So Manley sir they created the political climate and it has been this way every since the council became a black majority. There has been so much exposed since this council and like always some folks don’t want the truth to be made known. Manley I wonder would you have been the Chief of Police if it had not been for this council.

Manley but since you feel that WHIG – TV and their supporters love you so much why didn’t you run for the Mayor of the City since you were the Chief of the entire city? Why didn’t you run for that seat and it would have allowed the whole city to vote for you and then we all could see just how much you are loved by all of the people of the city?

Well sir you know we go back to when you wanted to be appointed to fill the unexpired term of the Edgecombe County Sheriff’s position when former Sheriff Phil Ellis stepped down. I don’t have to tell that story because you know.

Now there you have it.

Former Rocky Mount Police Chief John Manley Wants To Unseat Rocky Mount City Councilman Andre Knight But Why?

John Manley says he is not running against Rocky Mount City Councilman Andre Knight but I ask the question how does he come up with that?

I have some questions why is Manley running against Knight? I have heard Manley on FM 99.3 Talk Show and seen him on WHIG TV twice and he continues to say he is not running against Knight. What?

I get pissed off every time I see Manley on WHIG TV because they are eating this race up with their racist a . . . I know the deal on WHIG TV because they  have played a major role in trying to unseat Knight over the years. It is so clear that they are pushing Manley because of the conversation they have as if they just love Manley when in fact they don’t give a damn about him but just want to see Knight removed from office. What tickles the hell out of me is when they say Knight has not had anyone of Manley status to run against him so Manley should have a good chance of defeating him. So this means these ignant folks over at WHIG TV think they are speaking for the majority of black folks. Well maybe they are, maybe they know something I don’t know.

I wonder do Manley feel he would have been hired as the Chief of Rocky Mount Police Department if the current council had not been a majority black? Maybe and maybe not I don’t know but what I do know the timing was right with the board in place.

I am trying to figure why would Manley run against the one of the most vocal if not the most vocal councilpersons? Do he feel Knight has not done a good job and if so he need to say it. Knight serves on North Carolina Eastern Municipal Power Agency Board and has been one of the most vocal board members there as well whereby he was one of only about 3 black board members. Knight has been responsible for some major changes within NCEMPA which is a branch of the NC ElectriCities Board.

I wonder why Manley didn’t file to run for Mayor and if he had I wonder would WHIG TV be so supportive of him?

I know Manley and Knight well. I don’t live in Rocky Mount but I have family and friends that do. I have worked in Rocky Mount for the past 25 years and I have been to the Rocky Mount Human Relations and City Council meetings longer than that. I have also been a member of the Rocky Mount Branch NAACP since 1993 and also served on the county Democratic Party Executive Committee since the early 90’s as well. I have been a member of other organizations in Rocky Mount. I know politics and almost all of the political leaders and elected officials in Rocky Mount so I am aware of the issues.

Well I hate to see that Manley is running against Knight however it is what it is. I will say I don’t think this is the right time.

If I could vote for anyone it would have to be for Knight because of his record. I feel he deserves to be re-elected because I don’t know of any reason why he should not.
