A Couple of points

The station was merely reporting a matter which was public record.

Don't the residents of Bladen County have the right to know that $325,000 of taxpayer or insurance dollars went to bring closure to this issue? And if it was insurance dollars, the County can anticipate an increase in insurance premiums when the policy renews which has a negative impact on the future budget.

Of the $325,000, it's likely $178,000 went to attroney fees and related costs. That left about $147,000 to go to the estate.

If the identity of the law firm is known, don't local residents have the right to know how the funds were disbursed?

With the election for Sheriff pending, don't you think this case might raise some relevant questions concerning the Department's use of tazers?

For the record, the correct spelling for "sew" is sue. I'm not certain if attorneys can gain contingency fees from sewing; but they certainly do from suing.

For the record, you made the initial post which brought this matter up.
