ONLY ON 3 & THE BIG TALKER: Confusion continues as DA talks about Leland

LELAND, NC (WWAY) -- There is more confusion surrounding the situation in Leland after District Attorney Jon David went on the radio this morning.

On "The Morning Beat with Chad Adams" on The Big Talker FM, David focused his attention on the developing situation in Leland.

David told listeners this morning that his office had the situation under control and not to worry, but those who paid close attention may still be confused.

David starts the conversation on The Big Talker much like the conversations he's had with us saying he has not heard from any victims of crimes in Leland.

"To this point, I've never received any calls from any victim or witness of any alleged criminal behavior at the Leland Police Department," David said.

He says he has heard from a former employee, though, and has done what he can with that information.

"The only call that I've ever received involved a disgruntled former town employee who called to report these personnel matters and I immediately notified the appropriate authorities about that. That was probably three months ago."

But wait. That's actually not the only call David got.

Host Chad Adams asks him if he received a call from a Leland police officer last week. David admits he did, but changes the subject to focus on when he got the calls.

He also admits that after watching our stories, he feels these issues could turn into a criminal investigation.

"Well let me me talk about a timetable here, Chad, because again there is confusion, and I want to be able to explain this," David said. "Ten days ago, before any of this became an issue, when this was just personnel matters that were swirling about, I recognized the fact that given the content of the stories that were being run in the public, that this might ultimately become a criminal matter."

It seems there may be some progress with the issues in Leland. The town's Mayor Pro Tem Brenda Bozeman and Councilwoman Pat Batleman have called a special meeting Thursday at 6 p.m. The announcement says it's to discuss personnel actions. The public is urged to attend.

David

Look, Jon David has had his hand in every high profile crime in New Hanover County until he took over as DA in Brunswick County. Every single one. This according to an interview with former Big Talker Host, Curtis Wright. I remember that day specifically.

Jon also worked as an Assistant Prosecutor in Dade County Florida where he had a track record of.......
Well we will just leave it at that. A track record "of."

Good luck your poor citizens of Brunswick County you are going to need it.

I can hardly wait for the

I can hardly wait for the next election. I hope Rex Gore will run again and take his seat back.

Convinced yet?

Are all of you convinced yet that the on duty officers that were forced to do work on Chief's house were also working on Jon's too? I do believe that Ben is the smarter of the two. When Jon is not reelected then maybe he can go back across the river and work for Ben again. Here we go leland!

Jon ties up and wastes too many government resources

NO. We don't want Jon either! He spends all his time using police, SBI and FBI resources with searching for and charging fellow politicians or their supporters with petty crimes and trials to keep his name in the news. We don't want him.

LOL!!!

I guess Ben Davids grass needs cutting again? Ahh the benefits of being Rocky's neighbor!!!(TIM JAYNE) If "ANY" SBI agents are reading this? Please understand our complaints are being thrown in the garbage by DA David and the "Chain of command"! Its a mess! Talk to the Officers one on one and get answers on the "Whats going on" and see why "One Term Timmy" keeps changing the subject as well as why he can't give a direct answer. WWAY? Your close! please don't give up!!!!!!

jon david - lpdchief jayne

Reference to the residence of Jon David, he may have lived near where the future FORMER chief now lives. Jon moved from that area several years back to a more desirable neighborhood where bullygoats are not allowed to roam freely. As for the comment abt Rex Gore, you better hope and PRAY that yellow bellied back door dealer scared of his own shadow mealy mouth spineless coward stays the hell out of a courtroom.

I feel . .

I really feel let down with Jon David and I can't help but smell the good ole boys routine here. God, I hope not.

Why don't you spend less

Why don't you spend less time dissecting every word he is saying, as it is obvious he has taken the steps he needs to take, and more time digging up dirt where it obviously is, in LELAND.

Unbelievable

I heard this morning's interview. DA David was clearly caught in a lie. He should be investigated for obstruction of a crime. I hope that the news and media won't let this corruption go unnoticed. After all of his preaching and helping the citizens, DA David lies just like a politician protecting his neighbor. I hope the investigation against him continues.

leland

Where is the mayor? Why is Brenda Bozeman calling meetings? If Walter Futch is not going to participate why doesn't He resign? He has been so vocal about corruption in other matters, this comes up and He disappears.

Rex Gore

You obviously do not know much about Rex Gore and the many dealings he was involved in. Justice was bought and sold under the Gore regime. Just do some Internet searches and you will see some of the smoke and fire. This David guy is a credit to the good old boys and anyone claiming otherwise must be "one of them." for a man to trip on his words, if such is the case, means nothing. These snake oil salesmen that have been operating in office for decades in the district have obviously refined their speeches and had more practice. You must be Ok with placing politicians in office for life. Have you not heard what absolute power does? Just ask old Lord Acton. Selective prosecution and backroom justice is the way most judges and the former prosecutor operate.
Father forgive them, for they know not what they say.
