"Insubordination" could also mean he was let go for not doing something illegal, when ordered to; like violating someone's constitutional rights.

Could there be anything like this to it? Perhaps Mr. Armstrong should speak out.

read the story you morons! any idiot with a 1st grade education can see straight through this story... Looks like we have ourselfs a young cocky rookie punk who didnt get his way and now he is trying to make a veteran officer look bad so that he can get his little lolipop or what ever the winney little brat wants. Because if all the stuff he wrote was true, and he is the honest upstanding HERO!!!!! that he wants us to think he is.... then why in the HELL didnt he tell someone about all the "bad stuff" going on BEFOR HE GOT FIRED! Shut up you cocky rookie punk brat. go sit in the corner and let the big boys who have been in the game long enough to have at least hit puberty, make the real decisions here. By the way.... if he is so "IN LOVE" with his job as a police officer then why in the hell is he just a part time wanna-be in seagrove? why isnt he a real full-time cop somewhere that it matters? Maybe because he CANT get a cop job anywhere else?

it sounds like this young man was set up by someone who is hiding things and does not want the town to know what is really going on...I think the whole bunch should have to take the test if they are making a big deal about a stupid key....give us a break....

i know officer calloway and he is very dishonest man. I have known friends that he has come onto and is very much of a flirt. He has done an injustment to this young officer and has not been a good influence at all. God knows the truth and the truth shall set you free. Good luck officer armstrong, stand up for what you believe...

I personally know Shane Armstrong AND Don Calloway. Shane is a spoiled brat!!! He owes his 86 year old Grandmother a lot of money. He is definitely a "wanna be" cop.
Don Calloway is a great person! He and his wife are good people and have personally helped me several times.
Shane, get over it and move back in with your mommy!

Oh I know Mr. Armstrong and I know many in the Armstrong family, for the most part they are indeed good people although there are a few that fell far from the apple tree. I may not know about him owing his grandmother money however, I do know of his grandmother's great grandchild that has stolen from her, such as antique coins and such... I've seen his name in the law log on numerous occaisions and am certain his name will appear in there on many more occaisions!!! His mother is pretty much the same, its sad when her brothers state how they wouldn't trust her as far as they could throw her, its been said she pretty much wiped out her late brothers property just after he passed, in fact I knew a couple of her ex husbands that practically paid her to leave lol, they said it was so much cheaper to get rid of her before she robbed them blind haha... But as for Shane Armstrong, he is actually a stand up guy and I would stand behind him through hell and high water. I also know Mr. Calloway and worked with him at Asheboro Police Department and at the Randolph County Sheriff's Office and have plenty of stories that would make you sick to your stomach. The bottom line is, be sure you know your facts before you state your opinion, for It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

Hay Bad Deal and Honest I see you are both from Sophia. Well the Mayor of Seagrove is also from Sophia and I am sure you have heard about him as I have. He did hire Shane back over the objections of the Chief of Police. But they are right about wanting the Mayor to take the test. He has lots to hide I belive.
