Wilm 10

Criminals they are indeed. Think about the Wilmington Police Officer who was shot at by one of these thugs but thank God, the shot missed. Ask him,if he is still living,how he feels about these subjects being pardoned. Or the Highway Patrol Trooper who had a gun placed in his face but when the thug went to pull the trigger the gun did not fire. I know he is still living and I feel he would not be shy about giving his side or view of the entire situation. I was about 25 year old and I still remember the fear that fell over our city. Seeing National Guardsman and law enforcement, bunches of them brought in from all over the state, to assistance in the calming of peace to the city, the nightly curfews, the burning and looting of stores. There was Mike's Grocery Store on 4th Street, burned and destroyed. Not only was the store destroyed,but the owner and his family,their livelihood and lives completely in ruins and ashes. My sister was on the jury, and I know she went thru a lot emotionally over this incident. She is gone now,but I know she would never change her mind on her jury vote. The only reason these people want a pardon is so they can go on to their next step and that is to sue the State of North Carolina and the City of Wilmington for money "owed" to them. BS
