Warsaw, NC Mayor A.J. Connors: “This is not a racially motivated issue”, Officer has history of abuse

Published

on

The people of Warsaw, North Carolina may be calling for another Mayor soon.

Warsaw Mayor A. J. Connors released a video statement regarding the May 4 incident at Waffle House where an officer is seen on video chocking and slamming 22-year-old Anthony Wall.

Wall was at Waffle House after taking his 16-year-old sister to prom. Officials say Wall reportedly got into an argument with a Waffle House employee to the point that police were called. According to a Facebook post, Wall felt like a waiter had an attitude with him and his friends because the table they were trying to sit at needed to be clean. Eyewitnesses say the waiter still tried to take Wall’s order but he wouldn’t stop arguing with the waiter, which called for the manager to approach and get aggressive with Wall.

A police officer arrived and then choked and slammed Wall to the ground. The officer has now been identified as Officer Frank Moss. It’s not clear why Officer Moss used such aggressive force against the 22-year-old, but I guess it’s better than the officer pulling out his gun and killing Wall.

Wall said that he was “trying to scream for air and trying to breathe because he was holding my throat and that’s when I got aggressive with him because you are choking me.” According to Wall, his back was injured and he had a cut on his arm.

In a video statement from Warsaw’s Mayor A. J. Connor, he claimed that Wall became “disruptive and he brought on the issue which was  called for an arrest.” Connor said that Wall was “irate and threatening employees.” 

In the watered down video by the Mayor, he never acknowledges that Wall was ‘choked’, only that “more physical contact” and that Wall was thrown to the ground. Connor’s said that his

In Connor’s final words he said: “We must understand that this young man had broken the law. He was there, he started a “fight” and an officer’s job is to make an arrest if they see fit or there’s a reason to. This officer did what he had to do to make sure.”

Mayor Connor’s also added that the incident was not a “racially motivated issue, just a young man who had broken the law and a law enforcement officer arrested him.”

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.
