It is a good day in Leland, today!! Chief James and Town Manager Hollis (and WWAY)should be commended for having the courage and strength of character to know something was wrong at Leland PD, to address it and to fix it. There are still some left that should be held accountable for their behavior - O'Connor, Pierce and Spence - since they were complicit with all the now former police officers but I'm sure they will just play the "I was scared to stand up to them" card. Too bad the ones that did try to stand up and do the right thing were forced out and have been forgotten. But let's make sure we don't forget that it was Bill Farris and Tim Jayne that created this mess, allowed these thugs to get command positions and abuse their police powers and privileges. The sad thing is, though they may have damaged reputations, these "leaders" won't see the jail time they deserve - nothing that can be done to them could repay or repair the lives and careers they damaged. And there still is a confused and weak council (Boseman and Battleman)that still, to this day, admit no wrong or knowledge of what was going on - hopefully, the citizens will fix that in two years. But, today, it's a good day for Leland!!
