while i am sure the police are investigating, there are a lot of unsolved murders in this area. in fact, wilmington has a history of police incompetence. i saw a policeman, badge number 451 on thursday 7/14, ask a way too intoxicated person to leave a person's porch downtown, they did not even know the man. then he gave the bottle of alcohol back to him. when i asked the police officer if he knew that he himself was breaking the law by giving this stranger who was passed out with a burning cigarette on someone's front porch, he became belligerent with me and i told him as a police officer, he was pathetic. he tried to follow me onto my property, and i told him this is my property and i am not the criminal. soon after he left, the drunk man grabbed the arm of a cape fear comm college young lady, and then threatened me and the man who called the police. i don't call the police, as i really don't see much difference between them and the criminals. oh yeh, the officer said if i don't like what he did, i can leave wilmington. i moved here in 1961. pathetic indeed.
