What happened to the two

What happened to the two previous comments I submitted? Seems like someone at WWAY is apparently censoring comments for their own unsubstantiated reasons. What gives? I was just stating facts and offering suggestions for how the city could possibly eliminate all the shootings , stabbings and robberies in your public housing/ inner city areas. Please explain what happened to my earlier comments. Sounds like my opinions are being suppressed for some unknown reason. Thank you.

Maybe they weed out idiotic

Maybe they weed out idiotic comments.

Don't worry

Chief Evangelous can tell their mothers that crime is down. He said so.

There is no way the police

There is no way the police can prevent a murder. Half the robbers they catch, red-handed, are back on the street, in less then a week. You can thank our lawyer controlled court system. I guarantee you this killer, was a even bigger criminal then the victims.

who cares..

anymore. really.

The neighbors...

saw nothing, heard nothing, know nothing.

Apparently it seems all

Apparently it seems all these killings, stabbings and robberies seem to all happen in inner city hoods. Why doesn't the city along with the police chief set up a few command posts and have officers in full riot gear going through these troublesome areas after 11:00 pm every night and locking up all these scumbags that are prowling the streets at that hour. Instead of hiring all these officers from surrounding departments every weekend to man DWI checkpoints you could arm them and send them into these rat and gang infested areas. That way these idiots would see police presence and leave. Call it profiling call it harassment call it what you will. Like they say ...... if the shoe fits. Have a police force that will clean this garbage up will be beneficial to the whole city. Having a DA with balls enough to put these lowlifes in jail and keep them there will also help matters.

Here is a history on Mr

And I believe this might be the same, Mr Miller

Not exactly Boy Scouts.

Rally

Are you going to march for this young black male? What about his family ? Brandon tried to kill a police officer and that girl...

Yep. Good job Sheriff and

Yep. Good job Sheriff and Police Chief. Crime is down in New Hanover County. LOL

I'm sure that was the main

I'm sure that was the main thing, going through the killer's mind as he(she)started blasting..... "Gee, I'm sure glad Jason Vaughn is not sheriff".

I just don't understand what

I just don't understand what has happened to our quiet little town. It's everyday, there's a stabbing or there's as shooting or there's a robbery somewhere in Wilmington. What the hell has Wilmington become? It seems like Detroit with all the rampant crime. What is it going to take to get a handle on all this nonsense? Apparently the police can 't bring this under control. We need more police presence in these crime ridden inner city neighborhoods. Instead of rounding up all the surrounding law enforcement agencies for a DUI checkpoint every weekend, maybe the Chief should gather up all these extra officers, put them in riot gear and let them go into these rat and gang infested areas and yank these low life punks up and drag their sorry asses off to jail where they belong. Then have a DA with balls that will keep them behind bars. To all you bleeding hearts out there that say this is profiling, well, you are right. But it sure seems like all this crime is happening in all the inner city , black neighborhoods. Before you accuse any law enforcement officer of profiling or being too harsh on these scumbags, ask yourself this. Who is responsible for all this gang violence?
