I respect everyone's comments about the Sheriff's Department because everyone does have their rights to their own opinions; however, as someone who actually works with the Department, I see things a little differently. Why? I actually see what goes on first hand which the general public does not see. Yes, Sheriff Storms has come in and made some changes, but it seems he is going to run a tight ship & that is exactly what our Department & Bladen County needs! Everyone talks how the Sheriff's Dept. needs a change -- but now that it is taking place, instead of giving the changes time to work out & make a difference, people want to make accusations toward one another. We've all seen closed door meetings during the election (some of those involved were some of the deputies let go) and the general public did not see. If someone comes in their office after the election, cleans out his office, & just leaves -- you really have to question their loyalty to the job & citizens. It is time for Bladen County citizens to realize that there really are good deputies in this Department which put their lives on the line each day for all of you & what we really need is the support of our community & time for things to settle down so the changes can work for the betterment of our County.
