Oh c'mon

The guy was shopping for a Mother's Day gift for dear old Mom.
Or the 3 guys were......
Georgia Man? I guess we're footing the bill for this hospital visit.


You got it....

"Newark South"
Looks like Wilmington's City Council needs approval to hire more law enforcement officers..."Pronto"!!
These multiple shootings reported on a daily/weekly basis are getting way outta hand for a city as small as Wilmington...or so it seems.


WPD had a free source of officers but due to mismanagement,incompetence & personal vendettas by the lieutenant running the auxiliary officer program, I think there is currently only one officer. The auxiliary officers are not paid, not covered under insurance but are willing to work as a supplement to the regular officers. I know one former auxiliary officer was run out of WPD last year by her, other officers have resigned because of her.

If what you say is

If what you say is documented...and 1 officer is the reason there is a lack of Police presence from moral issues (or so it seems)...then we all know the reason for a lack of Police in that area. What does Chief "what's his name" think of this I wonder.
If what you say is true guesty, Internal Affairs needs to step in and deal with it, and put the citizens back into a frame of mind of at least "some safety" in their area. Your former auxiliary officer needs to step forward and spill the beans...the proper way.
Heaven forbid the "1 Officer" takes vacation/gets sick/or quits huh?

My understanding

It is my understanding that the lieutenant over auxiliary officers is the same one that another poster referred to during the vice/narcotic investigation earlier this year. She is in hiring and training. I know the former auxiliary officer met with the chief, the city manager and talked to the lieutenant in internal affairs to attempt show he was unfairly run out of the department and possibly may have his police career ruined due to her personal vendetta.

Here is the story with postings about her:


I never thought such a thing could happen in such a good area.

Typical Area

Well, that's the usual area that all the thugs hang out at so is anyone surprised?
