WWAYtv3 should close the comment section down for this article.
This comment section is being used for defamation to the club manager and a high school teacher due to a pending 5 month old baby paternity child support case. The shooting at the club is one thing to comment on. The other comments are towards the child support pending DNA test. This doesn't make any sense to use this comment section for continued defamation of the high school teacher or the worldwide establishment and the owner or manager of the club. This is really sad!

Club World Wide

99.99%! Is that good enought for you?

Clearly someone is trying to

Clearly someone is trying to discredit this establishment and the peron that is thought to own the place. Here we are talking about the owner not taking care of his children and what do this have to do with anything if it's not personal. There has been no emphasis put on Jasmine being okay. We need to worry about who's teaching our kids Spanish at East Bladen! We know what this is about. You have a bad day in child support court and you just start acting ignorant. Good example for our kids.

Club World Wide

Would you please learn how to write a complete sentence? Clearly you didn't pay attention to your teachers. You also do not know what you are talking about. Anyone who is giving away items for Thanksgiving charities doesn't realize that charity starts at home, home with your family and taking care of your kids.You are so pathetic in your thinking. I am done!

I agree with you....No one

I agree with you....No one has asked if the victim was okay at all...it is clear that individual is the one who is trying to discredit the business...but little does she know the information she thinks she has is not valid...but let her believe what she wants...we most definitely need to worry about the people that are teaching our kids....

Worldwide?????....never

Worldwide?????....never heard of it!

Clubs

There really are too many of these so called "Clubs", popping up around Bladen County. They are just fronts for drug activities. I suspect most are not licensed given the rural areas that many are in. Time for the Sheriff to look into it.

DRUG/GUN/GANG CLUB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This club is a bomb waiting to go off. I've been there a dozen times and I can assure you this is the typical bring your gun and dope hangout. Yes they do have a abc permit which was personly pushed through by the newest commisioner, and he's there just about everynight. I've seen allot of drugs from crack,cocaine, exctasy and more marijuana than you could throw in the back of a truck.The club owner associates at work and off work with convicted drug dealers and if you dig deep enough he's been charged and convicted with drug crimes.But yea, lets throw in a feed the homeless day and everything about the establishment is just a innocent place for family and children to hang out. Buch of CRAP!!!!!!!!!! Thankfully the Sheriff's Office and Police Department are tainted with corruption so they can continue to operate!!! DRUGS GUNS AND CRACK FOR EVRYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IF IT'S A BOMB WAITING TO GO

IF IT'S A BOMB WAITING TO GO OFF TELL ME WHY HAVE YOU BEEN THERE A DOZEN TIMES? THERFORE THIS TELLS ME THAT YOU AREN'T RESPONSIBLE AND IS A LIAR JUST TRYING TO START CONFUSION BECAUSE A RESPONSIBLE ADULT WOULDN'T KEEP GOING TO A PLACE IF IT WAS A BAD AREA. PLEASE GET A LIFE AND GET YOUR LIFE AND BUSINESS TOGETHER BECAUSE CLEARLY YOU ARE CONFUSED!!!!

Put down the crack pipe and learn a little grammer.

You were right about me not being a responsible person by going to the GANGSTA Club. I finally got saved and im learning from my previous faults.But I have been there and have seen what damage this club is doing to the community!!!!!!!!! Let me ask you this why do our people(african americans) always have to open up a club serve beer and drugs and shoot each other. Theres more shooting a black clubs than white clubs. In fact ive never heard of a white club!! Worldwide is a BLACK only club so it promotes racism. I know because i use to follow this kinda of hatred when i was a member.You can walk outside and see empty bags that use to contain drugs,needles and condoms all over the ground. EVerone is flashing gang signs at each other.Theres even women that go there to have sex for money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got my new life and proud of it, just trying to expose the devilish acts that take place at the club.

Spreading light

To this new saved born again christian. What a joke you are. First people have homes cars and hotels to have sex in so I guess we need to boycott or talk about them as being devilish places as well. Second my daughter goes to this place when she comes home to visits and says she has never felt more safe being in a bar than at World Wide. She said from time she arrived there was an officer there and when the night was over there was about three and people was telling them it was nice to see them there. Third why are you trying to down grade a new business that brings jobs to as you say the African American people which I don't think they would have a problem giving anyone a job being that I attended an event there and there was all races there so let the race thing go. Fourth as someone previously replied I am also an older member there and I have visited the place doing all types of events and never seen any of the activities you seem to swear on happen. Lets support on another and stop trying to tear one down. I'm willing to make myself known if you are willing to, sometimes admitting you are wrong is better then letting it catch you and make you look bad in life. Just a thought for you to think about and yes we know who you are. Giving you a chance before everyone knows.

Hide in the shadows long enough and the light will shine!!!!!!!!

Yea, of course, if a organization that had illegal activites going on and someone decided to let the dirty laundry air out ,Members of the club, would declare outright lies against the person who sheds the illegal activities to the general public. What does the club actually do for the community? Sells alcohol and allows drug use on the premises!!!!! Why have I seen multiple fights break out and the threat of a gun was used or someone actually pulled a gun out. Some have been shot or stabbed with a knife and put in the back of cars and droven to hospitals outside of Bladen County so the club wouldn't get a bad rap. Well finally the manager wasn't able to cover this one up!!!Hince "Hide in the shadows long enough and the light will shine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Why is the prescence of law enforcement needed? Is it that bad of a place? Why is its main hours of opeartions from 9:00 pm till 2:00a.m? Why do people that have been convicted of harsh felonies basically live at the place? why does it take all cops in the county to respond to the club when things get out of hand? why does the club allow people to drive away drunk or high? So yall are older memmbers! then surely at some point in time youve had your chance to ask the same qustion and fix the problems!!!!!!!!!!! cars and houses are only material things so why be jealous!!! actually sad of how those things were paid for through illegal and immoral profits!!! Like I said before throw a feed the homeless day in and the club is a saint!!! haha lol what a joke!!! O yea why are the two active members threating to supposedly expose me like that would devistate me. I CONSIDER THAT THREATING AND WHY WOULD A COMPLETELY INNOCENT CLUB HAVE TO THREATEN PEOPLE. WIll not be long before the club members sit before 12. !!!!!RICO ACT!!!!!!!!!!!

The saved liar

WHY IS IT THAT THIS SO CALLED GANGSTER CLUB HAS HAD SUPPORT OF ALL KINDS FROM THE WHITE COMMUNITY IF IT'S A RACIST BLACK ONLY CLUB? THAT CLEARS UP LIE ONE FROM THE NEW SAVED PERSON. OKAY ON TO LIE TWO FROM THE NEW SAVED PERSON. IM A MEMBER THERE AND I CAN'T RECALL SEEING YOU AT ANY OF THE MEMBER MEETINGS OR DINNERS? ON TO LIE THREE FROM THE NEW SAVED PERSON. NOT BRINGING DOWN THE CHURCH BUT MORE SEX IS BEING DONE INSIDE THE CHURCHES OF ALL KINDS AND BEOING BROUGHT TO THE PUBLIC EYES EVERY WEEK. AND IF YOU ARE SO SAVED WHY ARE YOU SINNING? YOU ARE PASSING JUDGEMENT, SO HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE. I DON'T THINK YOU CAN THROW ONE AND THE WORD IS OUT EVERYONE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE AND YOUR SKELETONS ARE ABOUT TO FALL OUT OF THE CLOSET. ITS AMAZING WHAT A FEW HOURS WITH A COMPUTER AND A PERSON THAT KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE DOING CAN FIND OUT. GROW UP AND GET A REAL LIFE BE FAITHFUL TO YOUR HUSBAND AND LIVE FOR YOU AND STOP TRYING TO HAVE A HOUSE OR CAR LIKE A FAMILY MEMBER. JEALOUSY ISNT A GOOD THING TO HAVE IN YOUR HEART. SO IN CLOSING I WILL PRAY THAT YOU WILL FIND YOUR WAY AND STOP TELLING LIES BECAUSE YOU ARE ONLY HURTING YOURSELF. WHY DO AFRICAN AMERICANS(YOU) TEAR DOWN THEIR ON PEOPLE? THATS THE REAL QUESTION!

YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE

YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT...THIS BUSINESS IS A LEGAL BUSINESS...THE ETOWN POLICE AND BLADEN COUNTY SHERRIF ARE WELCOME TO COME IN AT ANY TIME......PLEASE KEEP YOUR NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO YOURSELF BECAUSE IT OBVIOUS 100 PERCENT YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.....

Clubs

I will type slowly, while keeping my caps lock key off. Please reread the comment. Nothing was said about this specific "Club", just that the number of these "Private Clubs" is proliferating in Bladen County. Most have numerous incidents that go unreported until they escalate to the point of violence. The county needs to do it's job and shut them down.

I have visited and attend

I have visited and attend several events at Worldwide, such as feed the homeless, adopt a family at Christmas, toys for tots, 90th birthday celebration, graduation parties and Halloween treats for all the kids. This place is a Safe and drug free environment. Each and every time that I have visited and attend an event at Worldwide. The elderly, adults and kids all felt safe when we attend the different events above.
One isolated event does not describe the true environment at Worldwide. We the people of Elizabethtown have waited for years, to have a safe event center like Worldwide in our town to have events in a safe drug free environment.

The Truth

THESE CHILDISH AND IGNORANT PEOPLE HAVE NOT ONE TIME CONSIDERED THE WELL BEING OF THE VICTIM OR THE FAMILY. THIS ALSO GOES TO SHOW YOU THAT THIS IS A PERSONAL ISSUE AMOUNG A PERSON SEEKING ATTENTION. WHY DIDN'T THE MEDIA COVER THE MCDONALDS MURDER AND THE MURDER THAT HAPPENED AT TORY HOLE THE WAY THEY ARE COVERING THIS? BECAUSE A SILLY INDIVIDUAL KEEPS CALLING THE MEDIA GIVING FALSE INFORMATION TO TRY AND HURT ONE PERSON BUT SOON WILL SEE IT WILL BLOW BACK ON THEM. PULL THE WOOL FROM OVER YOUR EYES AND SEE THE BIG PICTURE AT WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON. IF A MAN HAS FIFTY OR A THOUSAND KIDS WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH A YOUNG GIRL BEING SHOT? MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO HER AND HER FAMILY AND IT'S TIME THAT WE FOCUS ON THE REAL ISSUE AT HAND. IVE BEEN TO WORLD WIDE ALMOST EVER WEEKEND IF I WASN'T OUT OF TOWN AND I HAVE SEVERAL FAMILY MEMBERS WHO HAVE GANG AND DRUG TIES AND WAS NOT ALLOWED ENTRANCE INTO WORLD WIDE. SO STOP THE LIES AND HATRED. ON SEVERAL TIMES I WAS THERE ETOWN PD HAS WORKED SECURITY AND MADE ME AND A DOZEN OR SO OF MY FRIENDS FEEL SAFE. RIGHT IS RIGHT WRONG IS WRONG. AN LADY SITTING IN HER CHAIR WATCHING TV GANG GUNFIRE STARTS OUTSIDE BULLET COMES THRU WALL AND GETS STUCK IN TV ON MLK IN ETOWN NO MEDIA COVERAGE, DEPUTY HITS BOY BY BALDWIN BRANCH CHURCH NO MEDIA COVERAGE DRUGS AND MONEY MISSING FROM EVIDENCE ROOM NO INVESTIGATION. LOOK AT WHO STAYS ON TOP AND WHO'S ON THE BOTTOM AND YOU HAVE YOUR ANSWER ON WHY YOU CAN'T MAKE MAJOR MOVES IN LIFE BECAUSE YOU ARE TOO BUSY TRYING TO TEAR EACH OTHER DOWN.

This incident is an isolated

This incident is an isolated incident...World Wide is a private club that also gives back to the community...events that have taken place have been a Halloween safe haven for the kids, feeding the less fortunate for the Thanksgiving holiday...adopting a family for the Christmas holiday....but of course the press wants to focus on the negative and not the positive...

what about the owner taking

what about the owner taking care of his children. He is a dead beat dad with children all over Elizabethtown that he ignores and surrounding areas. And those girls were fighting over him.

SHUT IT DOWN!!!!!!!!!!

SHUT IT DOWN!!!!!!!!!!

If

they require an ABC permit; and if this is not the first such incident, the ABC commission should suspend the license pending a full investigation and its findings. If it works in Wilmington, it should work in Elizabethtown.

requirements

Requirements of bladen county, what a laugh. The county has never required anything that doesn't benefit the Clarks, Campbells,owners of the building) or the Carters. Within the city limits they should have an ABC permit, but I wouldn't be surprised if they don't have one. Most incidents that happen their are gang related in some form or another. Bladen County doesn't give a opp about violence or killings. Black on black crime in this county is just another joke. The county paid Steve Lesane 120,000 this past year to head up gang related issues in which most of the particpants are his own family members and since he has received the money, it appears he bought a brand new truck and has dropped off the face of the earth. This is not only in the city limits either, it's also out the city limits; but apart of Bladen County. The shooting in Mt. Olive, where the young man was shot this past weekend. What permit do they have to operate a hole in the wall and sell alcohol without a permit. OOPs, soory that's Sheriff Prentice right hand---

Requirements

Re:Requirements

First and foremost you need to learn how to spell!!!!!! Second the shooting that happen in Mt. Olive wasn't at Sheriff Prentis right hand--place it was on a vacant lot, so please have your story correct when you are fishing for attention.

Seriously

Seriously, you seem like a well informed individual. $120,000.00 paid to Steve by the County. Gang related incidents at the club??? Bladen County does not care about crime, does this include you too? Are you a resident of Bladen County. Too much mis-information is part of what is wrong with society. Just saying....

& so what if steve was paid

& so what if steve was paid 120,000 by the county he's doin his job as supposed, you must be a misinformed individual who is hating.
