Re: “In Shock Move, Wake County Commissioner Jessica Holmes Resigns

Politics is the art of the possible. Sometimes the hardest thing for a political neophyte to withstand is only getting 95% of what you asked for. Some people just don't know how to take yes for an answer. I hope Ms. Holmes reconsiders quickly. I would hate to see someone that passionate and effective, throw away a budding political career.

Re: “Breaking: Pat McCrory Concedes Governor's Race

I'm honestly surprised. I had expected that he would only accept if the vote flipped.

Re: “Durham Councilwoman: Why Are Cops Involved in Frank Clark Shooting Still on Force?

Thank you Councilwoman Jillian Johnson for your powerful courage to speak out the truth for us all who do not have a voice and cannot force those in power to listen to us. That's also why you received overwhelming support to win your position. Continue speaking out in truth for us all!

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Profiles in Courage

Energy Transfer Partners said this changes nothing and they're going to drill anyway -- http://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2016/12/live…

That General Assembly Special Session could be where McCrory might be planning on packing the N.C. Supreme Court with two extra seats, shifting it from 4/3 pro-Democrat (which would help soon-to-be Gov. Roy Cooper slightly to counterbalance the Republican supermajority in both the NC House of Representatives and the NC Senate) to 5/4 pro-Republican.

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Impeach Judge Michael Denning. Does anyone find it very odd that Judge Michael Denning has not been impeached as a Judge yet?? He stated during a court hearing "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." Yet, Judge Michael Denning continues to be a Judge. Is there a shortage of Judges in the United States?? It is disgusting that the Wake County Courts allow Judge Michael Denning to continue to be a Judge when he clearly made a discriminatory comment during a court hearing. His friend and colleague, Judge Christine Walczyk knows about the comment and ignores it. Judge Christine Walczyk is too busy committing perjury and violating the rules of the court to care about her friend and colleague making a discriminatory comment. I personally witnessed Judge Christine Walcyzk lie about what one of the witnesses stated during a court hearing. It is despicable how corrupt Judges, Judge Michael Denning and Judge Christine Walczyk continue to be Judges in the Wake County Court and in the family court. These two individuals have no business being family court judges. Judge Michael Denning stayed on a case where according to the Judicial Code of Conduct he was required to recuse himself. Did he do that?? Nope. Denning just stayed on the case even though he previously worked for people greatly involved in the case, Denning's brother is personal friends with people in the case, he works with people in the case and both he and his brother are very close personal friends with them and Denning's brother used to live with a person in the case. Someone should write a book about this, I think it would become a NY Times bestseller because the corruption of Judge Michael Denning and Judge Christine Walczyk is overwhelming!! Let's not forget about the third corrupt person in this, Judge Robert Rader, whom is the Chief District Court Judge, he has known about Judge Michael Denning making the discriminatory comment and what did he do about it?? Here comes the suspenseful answer, He IGNORED it. Oh and his wife contributed large sums of money to Judge Christine Walczyk's campaign so Rader would never reassign her off of a case no matter what she does and I mean no matter what. Walczyk has already violated a multitude of rules of the Court, committed perjury, she acts like she is out of control at court hearings (there are at least 5 audio recordings to prove this that are made from the Wake County court) and still Rader ignores everything. I am not the Plaintiff or the Defendant in the case but it is horrible sitting in the Court watching Judge Christine Walczyk in action. She is truly a corrupt Judge and stands against what America stands for and supports, which is a fair and impartial court system. I have faith that when all of the facts come out, both Judge Michael Denning and Judge Christine Walczyk will be impeached as Judges.

Re: “State Board of Elections Throws McCrory a Lifejacket

Of course there was no evidence. We're in a post-fact world, doncha know? And one person saying there could be a problem means that there totally was a problem. If this is to be anything but what it appears to be, they would call for a recount of the entire state. I wonder why they picked just Durham? I can't for the life of me imagine why that county was selected. Hmmm...have to think on that one.
Funny that the GOP is screaming about a recount in WI, MI and PA, but seems to think it's a good idea here.
Oh, while we're at it, let's have a recount of the whole state for the Presidential ballots as well. I can't imagine what will be found.

Re: “Local Lawyer: Officer Who Fired Fatal Shot Has a History ...

Plenty of news about all of the wrong in the DPD, some of which is probably true. When will we get to read about how this community plans to deal with its deep systemic problems, including its tacit support of a convicted felon being in possession of illegal substances and a stolen firearm?
Not that many years ago I took some classes at Durham Tech, and I always did my best never to any further west along East Lawson than I had to. I can only wonder how much crime this neighborhood exports out to the rest of the area.

Re: “Local Lawyer: Officer Who Fired Fatal Shot Has a History ...

"We're targeted."
"It scares me. I become afraid immediately.
They're coming to do something. They comin' to bring harm.
I'm gonna turn around. I'm gonna run. I'm gonna get away from the situation.
It scares the hell out of me."

In August, I asked Chief Davis about some cops jerking their guns out so often
other cops call them "jerk-offs," and that the Durham Police Department does not
document use of force like other departments do, especially against pedestrians,
but that if the DPD required its cops to document it when they
pull a weapon and they do not do so, they can be fired BEFORE
they shoot someone. She said cops aren't gonna tell on themselves, and that
it is the responsibility of civilians to report police force use of force,
and that they can't know what their cops are doing unless we report them;
when I said desk officers don't document complaints taken to them,
she said we should take our complaints to the Civilian Police Review Board;
they're useless, will not take complaints about police misconduct, &
Durham One Call [560-1200] will not take complaints about police misconduct.
She said she wanted to talk to me after the meeting, but then
when I said I've been stopped hundreds of times and searched at gunpoint,
she said: "I wonder why?" and turned her back and walked away.
The next day, at McDougald Terrace [Nat'l "Night Out"], I told her
I wanted to answer her [snarky] question: I said I used to live across the street,
in Lincoln Apartments, worked there and at Durham Tech & NCCU, tutoring kids,
including kids from McDougald Terrace,
and that no one should have trouble with cops because of where they live.
She said: "It's a target area" and turned her back and walked away again,
to smile at children for a 'photo op.
"It's a target area." - That's why 'jerk-off' cops [Like Barkley?] can jerk their guns out
"all the time" like they say in McDougald: people in DPD target areas are targets.
