The Rant: May 22, 2012

How could a father be denied custody of his own child? That's the big question raised in a WWAY special report last night.Many of you have been sounding off about it on our website.

That's so sad.

That's so sad.

Greg Johns

There are thousands of fathers thru out North Carolina that have given up on having a relationship with their children because of the existing laws they must operate under in order to have what is a god given relationship. It is a shame that many of our elected officials have such regard for children while they are in the womb and no regard once they leave the womb. Our elected representatives in North Carolina could have made a difference long ago with a simple change in current Custody laws that could put both parents on equal footing.

To anyone who reads this comment or learns of Mr. Johns story the phone number to the North Carolina General Assembly is 919-733-4111 tell the operator the county you live in and they will conect you with your elected official. Tell them you want changes made to the current custody laws that will put both parents on equal footing and that you want the judge that heard Mr. Johns case removed from the bench. That judge is dangerous to our freedom and that individual could have stopped this matter dead in its tracks. Yet they choose to abuse Mr. Johns constitutional right and their position on the bench.

Electric Charging Stations

It's no wonder that Rufo and the Wilmington City Council are wanting to annex anything they can to increase revenue. Now they are putting free charging stations in the Market Street Parking Deck. My question is: When are they going to put free gas pumps in the parking decks? This is just another example of the poor management being handed out by the city council.
