WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – New Hanover County District Attorney Ben David says his office is using the full resources of law enforcement personnel to go after verified gang members, including Garry Hines.

“I want to know why my bond is a million dollars out of everybody that comes through here,” said Hines.

Hines will continue to sit behind bars facing several charges including 1st degree murder and 11 counts for selling and delivering heroin.

“On a first degree murder case it’s generally unusual for that person to make bond,” said James Payne, WWAY Legal Expert.

Hines was out on a 300,000 bond, before being arrested on Wednesday.

Something he himself mocked on his Facebook page.

Payne says there is a lot to review when determining someone’s potential bond.

“The first thing the court has to consider is the strength of the evidence against the defendant,” said Payne.

Hines says his family has now become targets of the Wilmington Police Department.

“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,” said Hines.

District Attorney Ben David does not agree.

“That’s not targeting. That is using the most effective resources we have to go after the people we regard as committing the worst offenses,” said David.

David says everyone is presumed innocent and that Hines will have the right to a fair trial.

“But, what you don’t have a right to do is to commit crimes and if you are charged with committing new offenses while you are out on pre-trial release that’s absolutely a factor,” said David.

Hines was in court Thursday and asked for a bond reduction, but his request was denied.

Hines is expected to stand trial in December for the death of 23-year-old Cornelius Blanks.

So, in defense of his first-degree murder and drug charges, Garry Hines brother says he has the cleanest record among his brothers and sisters. Gee, what have THEY been charged with? There are nine siblings — I would like to know what their mother has done to raise such a notorious gang of thugs who actually cry to the press when they’re thrown in jail because they think they’re being targeted by the WPD. Of course, I’m assuming they come from a single-parent home … NINE kids? Please don’t tell me my taxes paid for their “upbringing”!

“I want to know why my bond is a million dollars out of everybody that comes through here,” said Hines.

Because you are pure garbage and have proven yourself to be useless to civil society.

Didn’t his brother say he was “sorry” ? Didn’t he say he was gonna go to school ? It’s the damn lawyer’s fault, for not getting him off. This is so unfair, the way these two boys are being treated. Yada Yada Yada…….

The welfare system, of the last 40 years has created thousands of monsters, like the Hines, in NH County, alone. The sad news is, this is just a small peep into the future of our country. And the millions of more criminal, thugs that will eventfully overwhelm the system.

We need to bring back full use of Capitol Punishment, and end welfare.

So tell us now…Hine’s mamma, you raised these people, you praise them, you protect them and you continue to blame the police. Seems to me that you need to roll over, kick off your fuzzy slippers and understand what you’ve bred…CRIMINALS!

The concept of responsibility and accountability completely escape your thinking. These are the results. Too few and far between in my opinion, but perhaps things are changing. We’ll start with the Hine’s Bro’s!…

Hey, Hine’s Bro’s…you’ve done an impeccable job of showing us your intent on society. I’m all for putting your sorry, lazy a$$es in prison for the remainder of your breathing period. I think a Turkish style prison would be suitable. That’s coming next for you guys…

Why in the name of common sense is this something that has to have all this media attention? There are hundreds of prisoners who would love to get on tv and bitch. Why are you giving these people so much lime lite? They must be related to someone at WWAY. I usually defend your news reports but between this and Berger it makes me want to switch to WECT. Seriously. And this was your lead story? Nothing more important than this happened in New Hanover County the past 24 hours? You need to dig a little deeper and find some worth while news to report.

I dont know anything about you nor your family.BUT you said that out of all your siblings,that you have the cleanest record.(I am assuming criminal record) Seems like you all dont cherish America… The land of freedom and opportunity. You had the FREEDOM to come and go as you please and you had the freedom to be a productive citizen. For, whatever reason you chose to give up your freedom and opportunity. Son,(figure of speech) if you had the audacity to take someone(s) life or harm someone(s).. Then you need to be able to take consequences. Remember, in LIFE there WILL ALWAYS BE CONSEQUENCES good or bad… IF you are involved in the incidents above give the families and yourself closure and tell the truth. Now, you are inconveniencing many people, because they have to come and see you in jail and then prison if you are convicted. Not to mention your victims familiy(s). Hopefully, your family is talking with you and your siblings about understanding the value of life. Please tell your siblings and friends that still have their freedom to guys- pull their pants up, girls- dress respectful, clean themselves up, GO GET A LEGAL JOB and become a productive honest citizen and leave the crime alone as they and you can surely see it doesnt pay.
