    How about getting your facts straight – Mr. Lewis surrendered himself to a Shallotte Police Sergeant and was released on an unsecured bond. Give credit where credit is due. Mr. Lewis put his faith in the local police department and they deserve to be recognized for their hard work and the ability to take a delicate situation and make it conciliatory for all involved. Check the arrest reports!

    How do you get shot in the stomach and “released without serious injury?”

    Was he armed with a staple gun or a BB pistol?
