FIRST ON 3: 'Frog' still on the lam

TABOR CITY, NC (WWAY) -- A teen with ties to former state Sen. R.C. Soles is still on the run tonight.

Tabor City Police say Allen "Frog" Strickland called Chief Donald Dowless Saturday and said he would turn himself in this morning. At last check, the teen has not shown up.

According to investigators Strickland showed up at the home of Soles last week. The teen allegedly threw a bottle at Soles's car, but police say the vehicle was not damaged.

Forty-five minutes later Frog showed up at a nearby gas station and cut off his GPS monitor. He has been considered a fugitive since.

Come on WWAY, can't you find something else to report?

A mockery of the justice system ... a waste of time for law enforcement ... isn't there more important news ...

Well, I agree - to a point. What if RC had been a Republican all these years - chasing after teenaged girls ... buying them cars, giving them cash, purchasing homes and land ... etc etc? I'd just bet Boy Scout Roy Cooper, our alleged state Attorney General, would have been zealously pursuing Soles.

I don't understand why whoever put up the $1 million bond/bail (can't keep straight which is which) isn't public knowledge. If it involves a crime against the state, shouldn't that be public? Why is this being kept secret? And if Soles did put up the $$$, isn't that cause for ethics violation charges against him, as an attorney? Why doesn't the NC Bar care? Dumb question - most attorneys are Democrats.

Something tells me a whole lot of people way up the food chain just want this whole Soles drama to disappear.

The point is - if Soles did molest young boys, he should be held responsible for his illegal, criminal, and immoral behavior. That goes for the hundreds of cases against Roman Catholic priests - it goes for old goats molesting young girls, and it should go for a good-ole-boy Democrat, too. Few things disgust me more than a person in a position of power, taking advantage of a young boy or girl.

Soles = Sugar Daddy...this is soooooo obvious it is nuts.

Allen "Frog" Strickland obviously has emotional problems that have evovled into mental problems.

A thorough psychiatric examination would, no doubt, reveal a hodgepodge of "disorders." One thing for sure, he's a sociopathic stalker.

RC, by showing too much attention to Frog, and by endowing him with too many gifts, has made the fatal error of attracting an unhinged stalker. How can Soles sleep at night? Does he have a private bodyguard?

The real criminal is R.C. Soles, but his money makes the media forget his transgressions. However, nice addition of the "Frog" nickname to the saga. Read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," and see the similarities. While Strickland may be troubled, let's at least acknowledge that he is victim of sexual abuse by an elected official. Soles never married, but due to his standing, his pension for pedophilia is out of the question? Give me a break.

Put a reward out on the little brat and I will bring his sorry butt in. I am so very tired of this even being on the news. This is a mockery of the whole justice system and wastes the time of the law enforcement and the courts. Its about time to stop responding to the reports as neither want to really do anything to the other! They both get what they want out of the situation.

the clock in the BMW or Mercedes, whatever he is driving that partially secures his bond, may not be working.

And once one of the networks agrees to a Reality show for him, he will have something to focus on. That is unless Uncle RC buys him a business to manage into the ground.

If we're lucky, maybe Irene washed him away! Nahhhh...we're not that lucky.

He's probably hiding in Soles' basement. Can we find other news please?

during the few difficult days after a hurricane strike? Geez, this guy just dominates media coverage no matter what is going on! If, heaven forbid, we ever experience another terrorist attack, make sure that we know what's up with Frog and RC as soon as it's over!

He will show up. Why? Either Mr. Soles will bring him back, or Frog will run out of money or a place to stay, and he will turn up. Not so sure they are doing too much to find him. This time I hope some judge with some common sense will put him in jail and leave him there. But probably not! Some sucker with money will get him out again. Everyone is tired of all this drama. I still think he and the teen mom are out somewhere creating some news. After all, Irene is gone and there is nothing to talk about!!!!!!!! NOT!!!!!!!!
