This is the most interesting thing to happen in Bladen County. Why is everyone in an uproar now but when Nikki Dennis was elected Clerk of Superior Court years ago she fired a team of folks and no one spoke out or even questioned her decision. We should be outraged that she earns more than $80,000 a year with only a high school diploma. I seriously doubt an African American would have been given the same opportunity in Bladen County.
As for Storms, he is the Sheriff and we should pray for him as a leader. Maybe politics played a role in his decision but its the same politics that has allowed Sylvia Campbell to be elected Mayor of Elizabethtown. If the deputies were all black, I seriously doubt there would be so much debating. The deputies fired should have all remained neutral. The genetic relationship of one of the deputies to an eleted official has definately played a role in the controversy. If it had been me, I doubt seriously anyone would have noticed or even cared. But now that the shoe is on the other foot all hell has broken loose. The good ole boy system is nearing an end.
As for Billy Ward, he will have his day and the citizens of Bladen County will speak once again. Maybe we can all take something from this and progress forward. I see the situation from both perspectives! We should all stop complaining and be sure to go out and vote in November.
