ONLY ON 3: Columbus Co. sheriff's candidate calls on Sheriff Hatcher to join him for forum

READ MORE:

WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- Calvin Norton is running to be the next sheriff of Columbus County and he's trying to get some traction for his campaign this weekend.

Today he sent out an email challenging current Sheriff Lewis Hatcher to a debate on Saturday.

Norton, who's African-American and also claims to be a Son of the Confederacy, says he wants to focus on the problems in Columbus County including why officers are employed with the sheriff’s office whom have been fired, discipline, misconduct, or has committed perjury under oath.

He says he also plans to give at least a one-hour speech on his plans to stop corruption, offer youth a future other than our jails or prison, solve murders, cease gang activities, surveillance scrap yards, pawn shops, doctors, and pharmacy records to assure an arrest on all criminals dealing in drugs or property theft.

The forum will be at 2:00 p.m. off Highway 701 North about (600 feet from) Hwy. 74-76 in Whiteville. Norton says there will be a free pig picking, fish fry, Japanese rice and more.

No word yet on if Sheriff Hatcher will attend.

Snortin' Norton

This guy is ridiculous! Please. Sit down. Hatcher is too classy to be around you.

Norton should be a comedian

Norton, an African-American Son of the Confederacy, challenges Hatcher (by email) to a debate to get some traction (Hatcher must be laughing hysterically), do more surveillance than the NSA, give (at least) a one hour speech, and he's offering some picked pig, fish and of all things, Japanese rice as an attraction.

Sometimes, you just have to wonder what planet some of these people come from. If it wasn't so pathetic, it would be amusing.

Ever heard of HIPPA?

How in the world could he look at pharmacies and doctors? You would have to have a warrant to view such private information.

shhhhhh! he don't know that,

shhhhhh! he don't know that, if there is any obstacle in the way he'll just whip out the "executive order" thing
