WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — In 2011 Garry Hines says his brother was murdered and shortly after that he and his other brother Rashawn Hines became targets of the Wilmington Police Department.

“They act like I’m Malcolm X and my brother’s Huey P. Newton or something,” said Garry Hines. “They’re putting out bad things about we’re the city’s two worst offenders and my record is the cleanest out of all of my brothers and sisters.”

In 2011 Garry Hines was charged with 1st degree murder for the death of 23-year-old Cornelius Blanks.

While out on bond Hines was picked up on various other drug charges.

Appearing in court on Wednesday to face those charges he was once again arrested and charged with 11 more counts of selling and delivering heroin.

The 20-year-old was arrested after a month long investigation by the Wilmington Police Departments’ Vice Narcotics Unit. He is in the New Hanover County Jail under a $1 million bond.

“I want to know why my bond is a million dollars out of everybody that comes through here,” said Hines. “Is it just because of who I am?”

With many tattoo’s visible Hines admits he is a gang member but he says that doesn’t give law enforcement a right to target him and his family.

“I’m being targeted everywhere I go,” said Hines. “They raided my house three times and found nothing every time they went in there. The most thing they got out of there was a little clip of weed. The last time they threw some weed in there trying to set me up. I’m not saying I’m an innocent person that’s just out there 100% straight. I’m someone who is trying to change and you cannot change overnight.”

A “frequent flyer” of the criminal justice system and another example of why I would prefer my (tax) money be diverted to the building and staffing of more prisons instead of providing others housing, medical care, education, transportation, job training, daycare, cellphones, etc, etc.
