Kure Beach picks political people to harass every election

The late Judge John Carroll was this Kure Beach officer's target last year. http://www.wwaytv3.com/former_mayors_son_found_not_guilty_dwi/10/2010

Cops write you up even when you don't break the law there

the guy blew below North Carolina's legal statute of .08 and was written anyway by the cop for DWI and then months later the cop took it to the news to try to discredit the Judge and also the guy's dad, who was Mayor of Southport, during the final weeks of the election. If these two restless unproductive Kure Beach employees go, all the trouble down there will cease. A lot good employees have left that town because of them.

Kathy

So that none of the rest of us are confused Kathy, you some how define this vehicle stop as harassment? Mr. Holden was driving on three tires, admits to driving while under the influence of prescription drugs, and also stated that he had been drinking. Are you kidding? Remember Kathy, it is better to keep silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. Trust me you have removed all doubt.

Total harassment

"The cops pulled him over after spotting him driving with no front tire."

Yeah, completely sounds like the cops were targeting this guy. I mean really, I see the cops turning their backs on vehicles driving on 3 tires every day. They just had to pull this one over. So unfair.

You're sixty-four, sir.

Time to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into adulthood.

Bully cop did not have authority in CB to stop the guy

Too bad all of the council members who live there are afraid of this bully cop too.

What does that have to do with Barry's immaturity?

I'd also suggest that you reasearch the jurisdictional limits of a sworn law enforcement officer in the State of North Carolina.

Bully Cop

Bully Cop ? Thats a broad statement. How do you know they didnt have pc?
Im not defending anyone , but thats a biased remark without putting down some details

Bully Cop

Ahhhh. The same laws apply, in Kure as in Carolina Bch., in these regards!
