I said I wasn’t going to tell ANYBODY but I just couldn’t keep it to myself!
Time and time again I have told the citizens of Onslow County that Sheriff Hans Miller is crooked. He is not even WORTHY to take a DOG to the damn dog POUND! That being said, I can only hope that after this, EVERY African-American deputy employed by the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office will RESIGN.
Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller took to his Facebook page on March 10, 2018, and made a racist post about me, Gerald Jackson, allegedly calling me a “NIGGA”. Now, I am lot of things but a “NIGGA” is not one of them. However, I hope that the Sheriff did not think that he would get away with this one.
This is not Sheriff Miller’s first time supporting racism but it is the first time that we have seen him publicly [allegedly] call a black man a “NIGGA”.
In July 0f 2017, two Onslow County Sheriff Deputies illegally stopped and harassed a black man, Chance McClain, who was walking on Rocky Run Road in the Piney Green area of Jacksonville. Three days after Mcclain was illegally stopped, harassed, and physically touched by the two deputies, Sheriff Miller made a comment on Facebook:
“I’ve had a few citizens “scoop” me with that video. Most were supportive. This is how I replied: “The deputies were out doing their job to protect law abiding citizens. They knew who he was & they were checking him for active warrants..”
We published a story regarding the illegal stop which in turn caused Miller to post a second statement on the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page five days later:
It seems as though before us reporting on the illegal stop and harassment, Hans Miller was not going to address the video because his officers were doing their “job” according to the comment he left.
After further investigation into the incident we were able to conclude that not a single 9-1-1 call came in about McClain being a suspicious person. One of the deputies, Deputy McCallister, knew McClain from past encounters and even agreed that he was a known offender. When McClain began asking the deputies possible reasons as to why they were harassing him that is when McCallister admitted to stopping him because of McClain’s prior offenses but refused to give him any other LEGITIMATE reasons that promoted the stop.According to the Sheriff the stop was an “Investigative Stop”.
In the State of North Carolina an “investigatory stop” is legal ONLY when the officer “observes unusual conduct which lead him to reasonably conclude, in light of his experience, that criminal activity may be afoot.”
Other than McClain walking while black, which is apparently some sort of new criminal offense, what other crime did he commit to cause the deputies to stop him without probable cause, harass him, physically touch him and falsely claim there had been a 9-1-1 call reporting suspicious activity?
News in Onslow received a call earlier today, from an anonymous source, who told us that Sheriff Hans Miller made a racist post about me and that he quickly deleted the post after they refreshed but the source was luckily able to screenshot the post.
I don’t know about y’all, but I think that our “honorable” Sheriff seems to be showing a pattern of unscrupulous behavior as of late and there is no place in our community for a racist, dishonest good ole boy sheriff. I for one am asking that Hans Miller resign from his position and I hope that every other citizen of Onslow County will do the same after seeing with their own eyes how racist he is.
