WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It’s been five years since Sid Causey recommended Ed McMahon to succeed him as New Hanover County Sheriff. And to say over that time the relationship has deteriorated between the current and former sheriff, would be an understatement. Both men admitted that during a live, televised debate on WWAY NewsChannel 3 tonight.

Along with questioning each other’s truthfulness and the facts they are using to promote their campaign, the two Democratic candidates for New Hanover County Sheriff shared their views on various issues facing the Sheriff’s Office.

Throughout the debate, they seemed to agree on only one thing: Whether they would endorse their victorious opponent in November’s general election. You’ll have to watch to see what they said.

A call was made to the board of education today and according to them (and they certainly should know!!) there are 34 (thirty four) full time SROs in the school system. Um. . . Causey . . . SHUT UP!!

That trigger happy deputy cost the taxpaying citizens of New Hanover County 2.5 million. Remember something else guesty, due process…it’s American, not barbaric. We have an out of control Federal government, let’s not have an out of control State or County government.

…until you compared committing armed robbery the same as making a mistake, like putting too much salt in a recipe. He made the choice to participate in an armed robbery. That armed robbery started the course of events that cost him his life. If one of my family members was dumb enough to think a life of crime is a viable ‘work’ choice, I’d be embarrassed. I most certainly wouldn’t try to defend their actions and blame law enforcement for doing the job we pay them to do. The sheriff’s department went in heavily armed due to the pictures posted showing him and his buddies posing with weapons. He was already facing assault charges where he had attacked another person. His history of violence and pending charges were enough to be weary of him fighting the police.
