My wife and I are people who have gone to Wrightsville about once every 3 months as visitors (tourists), usually for a few days, for the last several years. We have come at all times of the year, and we have spent a lot of money, for us, at our hotel and various WB restaurants. We've enjoyed our trips, even though we have always known that one has to be careful because not everyone at the beach is upstanding. Now, judged from a distance, the story leaves us with the feeling that if we go to WB we will also need to be fearful of unwarranted stops by the police, based on untrue allegations of "headlight violation" or for some other minor fault, and that the result likely will be that one of us will be arrested and poorly treated, just for being female, or for going out to eat at a "suspicious" place and then trying to come back to bed, or for having a car that is too expensive. We are little people, and we know we can't fight the law and win. Please understand that for us this is a scary story. We take it also as a warning. Maybe Wrightsville Beach is no longer a good destination for those of us who are just ordinary visitors.
