HA HA HA

The police made more money than the drug dealers. Here's the numbers for all you people that think the PD did a "good job" you have to be new to this stunt by the PD. 31 ROUNDED UP, $15,000 IN DRUGS, $20,000 IN CASH AND $7.1 MILLION IN BOND MONEY I'd say the PD had a very good day. How does a person sell drugs to an undercover officer 9 times before he's arrested? Petty crimes are being allowed to compounded by the Rmt. PD so the Feds will step in, if Chief More can't do his job with all the force he has he needs to be replaced not call in the Feds to do his job for him.

Ha Ha - nuts

They should make more money. This is step in the right direction and we all need to get behind it if we want to make things better. Even though late we should take all the help we can get and move forward.

well done

Well done RMPD and other agencies. Keep up the good work.

Confession is good for the soul

β€œI just want the citizens to know that this operation by itself is not the panacea,” Rocky Mount Police Chief James Moore said. β€œIt is going to take this operation, many more operations and a lot of community collaboration, input and assistance to make a difference and enhance the quality of life for our citizens.” Interpretation: We need help. Instead of a civic center, lets hire the Police Dept. some help.

Good News

It's about time state and federal agencys got involved in Rocky Mount and surrounding areas. Maybe if it happens frequently the crime problem can be reduced. Let's hope this is not the end of the round ups.
