The Sheriff says to all in Wilmington....

Pay no attention to the authorities. They only want to hold you down and oppress your freedom to travel and go freely during a time of crisis.

Go forth and pay no attention to the men and women behind the "curtain" for they are only the one and great mysterious OZ who will save your sorry hides while you disregard and heed not their warnings for your safety.

I dare you. I double dare you. Don't listen to law enforcement or emergency management or the firemen or the medics. For they are just oxygen thiefs trading their time for your money till their shifts end and they no longer have to put their lives in danger because you were too stupid to listen to wisdom.
