this is the worst police dept i'm bettin in nc. now this is the police version folks. i will be sniffing for COVER UP! so a woman comes outta of her house to see what the ruckus is all about and these dirtbags excuse me "police officers" told her to hit the dirt when the 911 call came in as 2 vehicles in a road rage/tailgate incident and gun shots fired. it makes no sense especially when fireworks always start at about 5 to 6 all over gaston co about . that was probably what the 911 caller heard cuz i swore i heard cannons at my house that i thought hit my house but thats new years for ya. no common sense, no professional real training and for this chief franklin, well this is his crew and he is solely responsable for his officers. he is the 3rd highest paid fraud chief of police in nc. 167 grand.
step down you illiterate hillbilly. there are 3 tops good men on the force that are 1000 times more qualified then you will ever be. i see a fat sob siiting at OUR multi-million facility surfing the web and eatin plenty good. the chief in charlotte has more integrity in his pinky then you have in all of you body and soul.

step down. your an embarassment and a fraud and a noneffective nothing. and i am after your ass with another cover up botched up mess! i promise you! that!!!!!!!! research and perserverence only. good day

This spoiled little rich girl and her stupid boyfriend who caused the trouble need to spend a few months in the Gaston County jail. Good job people raising your idiot kid to act like this. Shameful. Just glad none of our policemen were killed. The things they have to put up with in this town!

Only one shot was fired and it was by a cop who hit an innocent person and another cop. What part of that is incorrect?

Franklin again. What an idiot. He talks like a second grader. Nice picture fat lying slob. Sounds like another of his famous "better cover my ass BS"

Thanks for posting the link.

IMHO: The Belmont PD's "Probable Cause" for coming onto the property without a search warrant and with pistols drawn in this case is pretty thin, and may not hold up under cross examination.

If the girl's parents hire a good lawyer, the City of Belmont could be held liable for some pretty hefty damages.

Sounds to me like the police done a pretty good job. I know some of the officers. You only here what the news says and not the whole story. Easy to judge when you only have half the story.

As for you franklin haters you are just dumb asses. He makes 66,000 thousand a year for dealing with all this shit day in and day out. Its public record what he makes take your dumb self to city hall and get the facts straight before you shoot your mouth off. Sounds to me you are a chicken shit hater who wants to hide behind a form. If you feel that strongly about him. Go talk to him in person or post your true identity so people can see who the real dumb ass is. If you are not willing to do so shut your freaking mouth we are tired of hearing it.

You're kidding right?. Another angry hater of people of priveledge/success or money. You are one angry fn bitch or other. Let me ask you this:

Why in the hell did the police ask the woman who lived in the house that was pictured to get on the ground with the 2 rednecks who were tailgating or causing a potentially dangerous situation on 273 when another person called it in from the road. 100 if 1 "emergency" RU
(response unit)/gaston co/bpd speeding down central. Jesus Christ went on for 3 fn hours. I live on Central and my kids and labs were going crazy(wife was working). Something isn't right here and I smell another cover up as the other poster posted. I am fair but this Franklin guy is not up to the task and I personally don't like what he hasn't done thus far. I liked Chief James just where he was....in Belmont POLICING and keeping his cronies in tact. I have had a bad taste for Belmont ever since. Now Mt Holy has the only good thing there-Chief James. He was a stand up guy and a good Chief. In case nobody knows, he was forced to retire. Good ole corrupt southern network at its best. Most of these cops here are the best of the best of being lazy, not fully investigating thoroughly and getting the fn facts straight. I can count 7 instances since franklin's been "voted in as cheat" and it's just like in the fuckin movies. Corrupt, corrupt, corrupt and how lowlifes & little birdies can do what the fuck they want and the honest, decent people get fucked right up the ass.

STEP DOWN YOU PIECE OF SHIT!!!!!!!!!!

We will never get the real story. This is how it works here and your a fn liar cuz I know factually he fn makes 160,000. And do not debate me on this because I will put every salary on here from front desk to the fn top.

Damn right I'm pissed. He had no credentials for that position. He was planted there due to something called NEPA FUCKIN TISM PERIOD.

He could not read at SouthPoint. A "special" needs guy.

No words. Embarassment is not the word. You should of heard the press conference after they sentenced the thug who caused 2 good people their lives during another one of his "calls" of proper protocol my ass high speed police chases. Fucking hillbilly with a pea brain.

I pay for his god damn salary and I think I will get a petition going to ask for his resignation and bring back James

i know all too well sir how this dept works. this is a cover up, full of bullshit, untrained bullyies, we the people never have gotten all the true facts of high profile debackles let alone the injustice decent people have endured behind the scenes. these officers signed up for this; they know what comes with the job as in the army, air force, navy. no stone left unturned. these police here are nothing that i've ever seen in my life. you will know a good, true blue hopefully in your lifetime. i have known many and all honorable and heroes in my book. just disgusted. and for the record, i do know the story, but their story is and will be very different as we know it. nice new year already. a girl for good sakes. and she was not going for the submachine gun either guys. 2 officers manhandling a young woman in the garage and franklins complete NORMAL BULLSHIT WAS IT WAS IN A CONFINED AREA IN THE GARAGE AND THE SUB MAY HAVE GONE OFF UNWILLINGLY all the while her parents witnessing in horror. bottom line is they did not know how to handle a very easy situation. they made it 1000 fold. and the police for the record do need a warrant to enter premises. the family will win if they decide to sue. they will hitit big. like the majority of belmonts' 9600 really want to go chat with our decorated chief. we work and have kids. come on now.
