It would never have made the

It would never have made the news had it not been a cop.

Seemed to be

I don't know Sgt. Stansbury personaly but he did come to a hit and run accident when he was K-9. He was very professional and an asset to the uniform. The next time was during Azalae Fest. a guy was takin away for a DWI and he had a dog in the car. Once again the Sgt.was very professional and waited until someone from the family came to take the dog so it didn't have to go the animal control..

That is someone you want in our area helping. It's the was it should be.

Who cares?

Why is this news? This thing happens everyday in Wilmington. Does the reporter know one of these guys or something? What a waste of time.
