I attended the called meeting by the County Commissioners. Let me tell you, it was a joke. The commissioners failed to come to any decision. Earl Storms would not even show his face. People think this is a race issue but the fact is it is not. Black and White were both fired from the department without warning. How many of you would like to be told twenty minutes before you thought you were being sworn in you didn't have a job. They have families to feed too. I will say there was one brave commissioner besides Chairman Pait who had enough guts to stand up and say we should ask for his resignation. That man was Commissioner Lewis Tatum. I hope the voters remember the events that have taken place. What would happen if we went to the polls and tried voting three times as one such commissioner did? I will tell you what would happen. We would be in major trouble. What would happen if you lied under oath? You would be arrested. So we have a Sheriff who is a liar as well as a commissioner who says she was testing the system. I would have to say that was a big fat lie also. Hopefully the Citizens of Bladen County will get out and vote. As a Citizen of Bladen County, I am ashamed of the new Sheriff and ashamed of the way majority of our County Commissioners voted.
