Black GOP volunteer says he was threatened at North Carolina polling station

A black Republican volunteer at a polling station in North Carolina on Wednesday said he was threatened by three white people — including one who showed a gun — and said he was called him a racial epithet, The News & Observer reported. Derek Partee, a retired homicide detective from New York, told the paper the trio approached him at the Steel Creek polling station in Mecklenburg County. “[J]ust threatened by two white males (and) a white female who called me a N*****, Black piece of s*** and he exposed his weapon,” Partee wrote in a Facebook post. “I had to back off and call (Charlotte-Mecklenberg Police Department), folks are getting bold and forward in the time.” Partee told The News & Observer that a fellow volunteer had pointed out three people in the parking lot who had been taking pictures Tuesday and Wednesday. Partee said he was taking down the license plate numbers of their car when he was confronted by the trio. Partee told Charlotte’s FOX 46 he took pictures of the two men and the woman before calling the police. Partee said the people approached him asking about his party, but “they didn’t care whether I was a Democrat or Republican, they just cared that I was black.” Dallas Woodhouse, the executive director of the state Republican Party, said county offices have been under heightened security since a Republican headquarters in Orange County was firebombed in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election. CMPD released a statement stating it had identified the trio and had one person in custody. The suspect had reportedly been carrying a BB gun. He was formally charged at the Magistrate’s office, according to the news release. His identity was not released. The two others were not charged after police determined they did not violate any laws. The incident prompted authorities to conduct scheduled zone checks at polling stations through the midterm elections, FOX 46 reported.

Glad they identified these punks and arrested one of them..  While I’m sure this guy thinks it was just a racial thing, it was obviously a political thing.  And, the idea of a black man supporting the local Republican party is something that just can’t happen.  Derek is a retired NYPD homicide detective, and did exactly the right thing; used his smartphone to take pics of the suspects, and their cars’ license plates, and reported it immediately to the local police there in North Carolina.  That’s a great lesson for all of us.  Have your local police non-emergency phone number handy in your smartphone at all times.  For more, click on the text above..

North Carolina Boy Asks Donald Trump for a Hug After Hurricane Florence

President Donald Trump toured New Bern, North Carolina, on Wednesday, viewing the damage caused by Hurricane Florence. Trump also visited Temple Baptist Church and joined volunteers handing out pre-packaged meals to storm victims. As he passed out supplies, one boy wearing a hat approached the president. “Can I have a hug?” he asked. “Yes!” Trump said enthusiastically, embracing the boy to the delight of the crowd. “You did a good job,” Trump said, referring to the boy’s mother before taking a picture with the boy. “Now you made me cry!” noted one of the woman volunteers.

How great was this?!  And, this little encounter is drawing the left crazy, lol.  If you’ve not seen this video, click on the text above.  Excellent!!     🙂

 

North Carolina kids fatally shoot man abusing their mother, police say

Two North Carolina children got ahold of a gun and fatally shot a man police said was assaulting and strangling their mother. During the attack, Steven Kelley, 46, said he was going to cut the throat of Chandra Nierman, his girlfriend, and kill everyone in the home, the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said. Police said Nierman’s 12-year-old son obtained a gun, and her 15-year-old daughter used it to shoot Kelley in the chest twice. Nierman’s 16-year-old daughter was injured in the shooting after a bullet grazed her leg. She’s since been released from the hospital, according to police. Nierman also “suffered significant bruises and contusions from the assault,” police said. Police were called to the home just after midnight on August 8 and found Kelley already dead. Kelley was a convicted felon who had two active domestic violence protection orders against him from women in Indiana and Ohio, the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said. He also assaulted Nierman just days before his death, police said. Then, investigators said, he fired a gun inside the house multiple times “to threaten and terrorize Nierman.” Police said they found multiple guns in the house and on Kelley’s body that belonged to him. Authorities have said that no charges will be filed against the children as the shooting is considered “justified.” The children have not been named because they are minors. Forest City is about 65 miles west of Charlotte, North Carolina.

A classic example of why it is so important to exercise your Second Amendment rights, and teach your kids in the proper use, and safety, of firearms.  Clearly this 15 year old girl knew what she was doing,  and under extreme duress saved her mother’s life, and in so doing put down this piece of garbage.  That took courage.  Outstanding!

NC Police Find $90 Million in Meth Hidden in Truck Driven by Alleged Illegal Alien

Officials in Linden, North Carolina, discovered 120 gallons of liquid methamphetamine hidden inside the fuel tank of a semi truck being driven by an alleged illegal alien, reports say. Harnett County Sheriff’s officers pulled the truck over on May 19 and discovered the large amount of the liquefied drug. According to WRAL, the liquid was destined to be turned into 454 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine and would have had a street value of $90.8 million. The seizure was part of a wider investigation into the trafficking of meth in the area. The truck was crewed by Raul Topete Arreola, 49, and Aquileo Perez Pineda, 48. Pineda was quickly put on an immigration hold while immigration officials looked into Arreola’s immigration status. The pair were charged with three counts each of trafficking methamphetamine and placed under a three million dollar bond.

Second-grader given ‘white privilege’ handout

A North Carolina parent is upset after her 8-year-old son was given a handout teaching him about “white privilege.” The sheet is labeled “Step 3: (Begin to) Understand the Concept of White Privilege” and lists statistics showing a disproportionate number of white people in government, media and the entertainment industry. Amber Pabon, a parent at Hunter Magnet Elementary, said her son came home last month with the paper in his folder. “I think the message itself is inappropriate because, yes, there is racism out here, and they need to learn about it, but let the parents do that,” Ms. Pabon told ABC affiliate WTVD. “Because like I said, if she’s teaching him the way she knows, it could be completely different from the way I know. And me being part of the black community, I know different from how the white community sees it.” A note at the top of the sheet said it’s an initiative of the school’s PTA to generate “awareness and empathy to create a safe and equitable Hunter Community.” Ms. Pabon claims the material was taught in her son’s second-grade class, but a district spokesperson said it’s not part of the school’s curriculum. PTA members said the handout is intended for parents, and new material is sent home, emailed or posted to Facebook every week. They said it’s part of a popular “11-Step Guide to Understanding Race, Racism, and White Privilege” created by the high school teacher Jon Greenberg.

This the kinda crap that is destroying our country..  Unreal..

North Carolina Resident Kills One of Three Home Invasion Suspects During Christmas Eve Gunfight

A resident opened fire and killed one of three home invasion suspects after awaking to the sounds of someone in his home Christmas Eve. The incident occurred Sunday morning in New Hanover County, North Carolina. According to WNCN, the suspects entered the home around 2:30 a.m. Their movements awoke the homeowner, who retrieved a firearm and engaged the suspects in a gunfight. The homeowner killed 31-year-old Hakim Hanifah, causing the remaining two suspects to flee the scene. WWAY reports that Hanover County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Jerry Brewer described Hanifah as “a validated gang member.” Hanifah’s criminal record includes a guilty plea to charges of a felon in possession of a firearm. He was also alleged to have “[punched] a prison guard on Christmas Eve 2009, because he was not happy with the amount of food he was served.”

Glad to see this piece of garbage was put down by a law-abiding gun owner exercising his Second Amendment rights.  Had he called 911, he would have been dead before the cops could arrive.  Score one for the good guys!   🙂

Shark spotted swimming near man trying to escape police custody

A North Carolina man allegedly attempted to elude police on Wednesday by diving into the ocean and swimming away — but unknowingly he was just feet away from a shark while trying the brazen escape. Zachary Kingsbury, 20, was pulled over for a traffic stop just before 5 p.m. in Surf City, according to WECT. He allegedly tried to escape when officers spotted illegal contraband inside the vehicle and asked him to exit the car. Kingsbury jumped into the ocean and began swimming away, leading to an hours-long standoff, officials said. Within an hour, Kingsbury was reportedly 4,000 feet from the shore, and the Surf City Police Department launched a drone to track the escapee. “At that point, the operation became a rescue operation,” police said in a statement. But as police were trying to save Kingsbury, they noticed a shark swimming near the man, drone footage showed. Police were able to nab Kingsbury about 7:45 p.m., according to the Charlotte Observer. “I would’ve drowned after 10 minutes…dude’s an animal,” a witness wrote in a Facebook post. Kingsbury was charged with resisting arrest, obstructing an officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, methamphetamine, and possession of marijuana of up to a half an ounce.

And, if he had been eaten by that shark, there would have been a word for that…karma.    🙂
