Hiding guns in the kid’s room

I usually skip all drug crimes, mostly because I don’t think they should be crimes. But I’m making an exception for this one because of what else they got him for.

Police say a Henderson man kept a loaded gun in the bedroom of a child under 16, next to snacks and candy, in the same southeast Raleigh house that the man facing charges was maintaining to sell cocaine and marijuana.

Now the gun grabbers tell us that if only there was a law that made it a crime to allow children access to firearms, the world would be happy and joyful again.


What about the law that says people like him can’t have guns either? If they can’t enforce that one, what makes them think they can demand the rest of us keep our guns under lock and key?

Family Values

This is a terrible thing to do to anyone, and especially bad to do it to family.

Police in Greenville have arrested a man who they say robbed his own brother at knifepoint.

Domestic violence?


Or just another criminal being a criminal to everyone around him?

Up on charges for murder, he solicits another murder

Why would anyone conspire with criminals?

A man in Union County, who is already in jail and previously accused of two murders, was charged with criminal solicitation for attempting to pay two fellow inmates to murder a witness in his upcoming trial, officials say.

Seriously? Two other inmates, who have every reason to rat you out so they can get a better deal and you’re going to try to contract a murder with them?


His other specialties include arson, blowing things up, Insurance Fraud, and driving drunk in other states.

Sean the Narrator

I had so much fun reading some short fiction for The Drabblecast that I asked around a few other audio fiction podcasts and was asked to read for the Fantasy genre Podcastle

In the main tent, around the sand and dirt floor of the arena, a wooden wall is erected eight-feet tall. The worn, angled seating rises from there. A makeshift gate sits on the side where the opponents emerge, and another across from it from where I emerge. Real boulders dot the floor for cover or weapons, or both. Everything is wood or stone, nothing metal.

“I’ve had plenty enough experience with magnetic controllers to know that a little fire ain’t so bad,” Mother Circus would say.

It was a hoot. It is the second of three short fiction stories on the podcast. I think it’s a great story.

Weer’d told me that when he listened to the previous story, at the Drabblecast, he wouldn’t have recognized me. This one is even more different. Check it out.

She loves to run

And not in that healthy, let’s get some exercise way.

Police say a Jacksonville woman fleeing from them during a traffic stop this week caused a widespread power outage after her vehicle crashed into a transformer.

(Suspect) was speeding on Henderson Drive near Jacksonville High School at about 1:57 p.m. Wednesday and continued traveling after officers tried to initiate a traffic stop, according to a JPD release. She turned left on Gum Branch Road, losing control of her vehicle and striking guide wires for a Jones-Onslow Electric Membership Corporation Member power pole, the release stated.

(Suspect) ran after the car stopped, entering three nearby private residences and allegedly assaulting a resident at one of those homes, according to the release. She was taken into custody by the Jacksonville Police Department at 2:03 p.m., according to Purcell.

And she’s no stranger to this exact crime


She isn’t going to change.

Carjacker wanted

No, it’s not a help wanted ad.

A man is wanted by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police for his connection to two local carjackings, according to police.

Who are they looking for?


Kinda figured.

Tips lead to arrest

Stealing trail cameras? What are they thieves or anti-hunting activists?

Two men were arrested and charged for stealing cameras in east Lincoln County with help from the public, police said.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said it got over 30 calls from the public helping to identify the suspects after. The calls came in response to a news release the office posted online about theft of cameras on a private road off N.C. 73.

In any case, they’re jammed up now.

Suspect 1

Suspect 2


Don’t ride with strangers

Sometimes it’s better to just walk.

The two suspects had provided the victim of the robbery with a ride to the Crismark subdivision saying they were going to a party, the victim told investigators.

But after arriving to the area, one of the suspects pulled out a gun in the vehicle and ordered the victim to hand over their phone and money. Sheriff Eddie Cathey said the suspects had pistol-whipped the victim and abandoned them at the side of the road.

And who have they arrested for this?

They seem like wonderful people!

Prankster almost gets shot?

Triangle Tactical finds a really funny story.

Crusing around on Reddit tonight, I came across this story about a girl who was set up to be on the TV show “Scare Tactics”.

I hate those shows and won’t watch them. Why? Because I carry a gun. If someone tried to prank me like that, there’s a serious chance that the prankster would end up bleeding out on the pavement.

Read the story, even though it was pretty scary, it’s funny. Now. And not for the reason it was supposed to be funny.
