The police seem to be able

The police seem to be able to round up the latest crop of drug criminals without a hitch, but can't help a suicidal female veteran or safely transport a schizophrenic boy.

Has the focus of law enforcement become not to save the lives of the citizens of the county, but to repeatedly engage in nothing more than enforcing penalties for selling opiates without a license?

Do the police work to serve and protect the people, or the makers of Oxycodone?

The suicidal woman had a

The suicidal woman had a gun. The schizophrenic boy was killed by a gun-happy cop with little patience.

Do you even know how dangerous Oxycodone can be? Do you know how many crimes are committed by addicts to get money for their next fix? Getting drugs and dealers off the streets benefits us all.

Amazing how the police

Amazing how the police manage to pick all these dangerous criminals up without shooting them. Guess they weren't schizophrenic or suicidal.

How Can you say all these

How Can you say all these people are dangerous when you don't even know thiamine people do get wrongly accused

Good Job

I will give these guys credit when they are out doing good investigations on felony crimes like this. Please spend more time on these types of investigations and stop worrying if private club owners have enough questions about someone's hobbies and interests on their applications for memberships.

Drug bust in Bladen county.

Great job officers. You made my day. Knowing that you put these folks in jail make me think that Karma is a pay back.

What everyone needs to know is these folks were in my yard doing repair to my garage and windows. They have many website : all vinyl siding and windows ' They attached the metal panels to the previous hardware which were for a wooden garage and they did not install the track nor the rest of the kit according to the instruction manual. They did not install all the part and took them with them. Nothing worked. Of course I had to hire someone else to get the work done. They were to remove rotten wood from the brick molding on my windows, and wrap the windows with aluminum. None of the screens fit the windows and they did not replace the wood. The cut it off and wrapped it. They took another $7,500.00 from me in form of a check and cashed it the next morning without doing any work. They lie and steal from you. Please review the BBB complaints.
There are many complaints to the Better business bureau and it is so sad how they steal monies from the consumers who will hire them. They do shoddy work and collect half of the money and never complete the work. Please read the BBB of coastal Carolina. They are missing 2 more people of this gang. I will furnish this info to Bladen co officers.
I took them to court and were ordered to pay me back. I most likely will never see my monies as I believe they will be in jail for awhile. They were scamming people to finance their drug.
