Sheriff Candidate Boyd Brown has a better plan to protect your child and community

Published

on

The Onslow County Sheriff’s race is getting HOTTER after Republican Sheriff candidate Boyd Brown releases a powerful address to the citizens of Onslow County concerning their child’s safety as well as the community safety Wednesday evening.

In the Facebook post, Brown talks about the lack of School Resource Officers in Onslow County Schools and how money should NOT be spent on “new style uniforms” or resources on traffic stops.”

“Now is the time to safeguard one of our most valuable resources, our children,” Brown said in the post.

Over the past few years during the term of Sheriff Hans Miller, there have been far too many lives lost to violent acts occurring in schools around the world. During those tragic times and most recent horrific times, Miller has failed to address the citizens of Onslow County on his plans to protect students in Onslow County Schools.

Here you have a Sheriff candidate who has not only addressed the recent shootings in schools but also revealed his plans to proactively engage in protecting the communities and children in Onslow County.

“We cannot, and should not, allow Onslow County to be added to this list of tragedies,” Brown continued in the Facebook post.

Brown plans are to make sure that all schools in Onslow County have full-time School Resource Officers and that those resource officers are increased in numbers. According to Onslow County Schools System Strategic Plan for 2016-2022, OCS GOAL 4, Objective 4.4.2 states to “Increase the number of School Resource Officers (SROs) in schools.”

If an active shooter was to happen in one of Onslow County Schools, there would be more fatalities than lives saved due to the lack of measures and plans currently in place to protect our children.

The presence of an Onslow County Sheriff’s vehicle outside of a school just won’t prevent a person with an unstable mind from commuting a mass shooting.

In closing of Brown’s Facebook post, he says his intentions are to be a pro-active sheriff and not a reactionary sheriff.

  1. Do You think I'm Crazy?

    A vote for Boyd Brown would be like voting for a cookie cutter copy of Ed Brown. Personally, I do not want to go back to the dark ages with his archaic thought process. I heard him oppose, the Sheriff’s office, getting a victim advocate for those affected by domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Under Ed Brown, Boyd Brown was his right hand. Building the current facility was the most modern thing that happened during their reign. Female deputies having to cook for the inmates in the old jail. Only the bible (which I don’t oppose) being the approved reading.
    But they offered no support was provided to victims who came forth to report their experience of assault. Unsupported, detectives were allowed to bully and demean sexual assault victims without recourse. No thanks. I’ll pass.

VIDEO: Black Rose Tavern accused of kicking out Black man for charging phone

Published

on

A Jacksonville man says he was kicked out of a Midway Park bar Tuesday after he was trying to charge his phone. 

Jacksonville resident Kenneth Foster lost power at his home because of Hurricane Florence and needed to charge his phone, but when he went to Black Rose Tavern in Midway Park to charge it, he was kicked out.

“I left Hungry Howies to go to Black Rose Tavern to get a drink and I needed to charge my phone,” Foster said. “I saw children charging their phones.”

Foster said that when he asked the owner of Black Rose Tavern, John Bova, if he could charge his phone he was met with the reply that “this ain’t that type of bar”.

Bova, however, is claiming that Foster walked in the door, and, without asking, plugged in his phone.

“He walked in the door and plugged in his phone, and my wife who was the bartender walked over and asked him if she could help him and asked if he needed something to drink. He told her that he needed to charge his phone.”

Bova told News In Onslow that Foster began getting hostile with his wife, which is when he stepped in, told Foster that he could not charge his phone and informed him that he needed to leave.

Bova explained to Foster that they are a private club and that he cannot just walk into their place business and plug in his phone.

It was after being told to leave that Foster pulled out his phone and started recording.

Foster said Bova grabbed his phone and bruised his finger but he will not be pursuing criminal charges.

“I know the man racist,” Foster told News In Onslow.

The bar owner said that he is not racist and that his business is diverse.

Published

When you talk about scamming, you think of the American Red Cross. A non-profit organization that accepts donations and never help people like their mission say they do. Some citizens of Onslow County, North Carolina can tell you about their experience with the non-profit organization and what happened Tuesday, September 18th.

Tuesday, officials in Onslow County told local residents that the American Red Cross would be feeding them in different locations throughout the county, but at two locations the non-profit never came.

Two of the locations, Richlands Library, and New River Shopping Center had people waiting nearly three hours for American Red Cross meals that never came and now the organization is saying it was a ‘big mistake’.

RHOA Kandi Burrus “The Lies!”

American Red Cross representative Charlotte Rodriguez told local reporters, “It was a big mistake that we should not have made.” 

It’s funny how the organization acknowledged their wrong but never apologized to the people they wronged.  Always want you to donate your money but have a hard time with integrity.
