They were all over the Patterson area. Up and Down 268, Roby Martin, Setzers Creek. There were 3 or 4 city cop cars and 3 or 4 deputy sheriff cars as well. Looking for somebody, not sure who.

I live on Zacks Fork they came by my home about 70 mph chasing a crotch rocket with an 18 year old boy and a girl holding on behind the boy the police started the chase then all of the shift fom th sheriffs department pursued. I think a highway patrol came next. All this and the police department coming into the country to chase a boy on a bike. What did he do. I saw about six ccsd cars at different areas are you kidding.... I am still in shock meaning of this. what did tey do?????? Woud like to see the report on this. I am glad they did not kill them....... Sit your children down and explain to them if they run from the police in this area they go absolutely crazy. It is a rush they get with the chase. But in all seriousness all of our sheriffs department for the shift. Please...Sense

Well if you saw six Sheriff cars then that was the whole shift considering Jones wastes money on other things besides actually funding officer positions, the Lenoir Police Department has more officers on shift than the whole county does. But seriously chasing a motor cycle, how stupid. What did he do kill someone or rob a bank. You wont catch most bikes in a car plain and simple and all you do is put everyone's life in jeopardy by pursuing one, probably over some simple traffic infraction.

Those morons just chased an idiot to his death, killed the female rider too not long ago on 321 and nearly killed an innocent motorist over a speeding violation. Had they just broke off the chase no one would have died. Chasing a bike is crazy. Maybe that will be the next lawsuit against ccso when they kill some innocent motorist because they are bored and all want to chase a bike. Well at least the real criminals know what to do when they want to commit a major crime, just get someone to lead all of our law enforcement around like jackass's while they rob some place.

Thanks for the info I wish I knew what was happening I thought that it was a chase since I saw officers going pass Walmart probably down Nuway Circle and then say officer pass up going to Wilkesboro Blvd so my thought is they was chasing someone and trying to cut them off on Wilkesboro blvd but hopefully we will find out what happen soon and again thank you for the info.

I was asking about my Discussion don't really care about Alan Jones just wanted to know what was going on and I think that the person that were chased on 321 had drugs in their possession and that's their on fault for being STUPID and running from officers when the gut that was running from the police shouldn't have put the female life in danger and all the blood is on his hands for being so STUPID. Thanks for your comment but didn't help on the issue that I wanted to know about PEACE OUT

I wasn't replying to you in the first place or didn't you notice. You brought the topic up but that doesn't mean all responses are directed at your particular question. The question brought up a related point that in my opinion needed to be addressed. Of course the one that got killed on the motorcycle died by his own hands also killed another person and nearly killed someone that had nothing to even do with it not to mention all the probable near misses as the sheriff cars flew down the highway over a hundred miles an hour through red lights to catch a speeder with a little drugs on them which they didn't even know at the time.

Its called using common sense and cost vs risk. Unless this person is an immediate threat to the public unless apprehended then why risk multiple peoples lives to catch them, they are in fact creating a worse problem by the pursuit. Its all well and good until a deputy car plows through your family, loved ones, friends or your car killing everyone in the blink of an eye to catch a speeder with a little weed on them. As for Jones well he is head of the department and makes the policies so I put the blame at the root, his record speaks for itself anyways... but to reiterate I was not even replying to you.

Ok you wasn't replying to me so why didn't you make your own Discussions instead of replying to mine and officers don't put people life in danger that's why you get in the other lane when you see police lights or the Sheriff coming thur with their lights and sirens on so Only smart people know to do this and Please start your own Discussion because I was just asking if anyone have any info on what was going on on Blowing Rock Blvd

Pardon me I didn't realize you owned the topic once you created it. It would seem kind of silly to make another thread to clog up the system when this one already exists and is directly related to the subject. Again I didn't realize I had to ask your express written consent to reply to another poster but funny you didn't make a big deal over their remarks which didn't answer your question and lead me to the statement I made.

As for your statement about how they endanger no one well you couldn't be further from the truth if you tried and now I suspect you are just pulling stuff out of your rear because you think I know nothing of the subject. Maybe look up the number of officer related high speed crashes every year and the number of citizens accidentally killed by the same. Yes in a perfect world people are supposed to pull over but I have rarely seen that happen then you have the whole going so fast you basically outrun the siren, that goes into a whole different officer safety issue of driving with due regard.

I wonder why if all you say is true that so many departments across the nation have a no chase policy on motorcycles many have a no chase at all policy unless it is a suspected felony charge. I wonder why so many departments have been sued and lost because of officers killing innocent civilians in chase crashes. Lets see I seem to remember a similar incident at smith crossroads with LPD several years ago, why dont you ask them how that turned out for the department. Obviously you have never chased or driven high speed in those situations or you would have some idea of the danger and the futility of chasing a bike.

I suspect you are just arguing at this point for the sake of arguing and obviously you took offense at who it was directed at but oh well life goes on.

Btw what I said was on topic. If you are that concerned call the police and ask them what was going on or better yet dont worry about it if it doesn't involve you. I hear sirens and police running code multiple times a night, it happens every day and every night... just another day on the farm my friend. I should also tell you I will comment on whatever I want to whenever I want so with that said... have a nice day or as you say peace out.

First of all you must be on the wrong topic because I don't care about the high speed chase on 321 with the drug dealer so I was putting my question on here to see what was going on about the officers with their lights on so I don't understand why you have to bring up issues that have nothing to do with the Topix that I was asking about and why the hell do I want to call Police and be an idiot and sorry I don't live on a farm and also it might don't involve me but its doesn't involve you either so why we have to disrespect my Discussions LIKE I SAID MAKE YOUR OWN IF YOU DISLIKE ALAN JONES BE A MAN AND TELL HIM TO HIS FACE. Why don't you help with the investigation on RAOUL DULA SINCE YOU DON'T HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO THEN MESS UP topixs

This is senseless to chase these kids however no one was hurt but what if we were enjoying a walk or mowing our roadside or a pet duck o animal was there? My question is other areas do have a no chase policy I know of at least three deaths that have been encountered due to chases such as this. I feel if the passenger was in danger that would be a positive reason to do so. I suppose if the police were chasing into the county they were having some serious mental problems because at least 5 or 6 from the sheriffs department were in the chase... I wonder if Sheriff jones knew or was listening to the chase......

I have to agree its just stupid to chase a motorcycle or a car for that matter ove something minor. Put to many people in danger for what. You know as good as I do they just wanted to have to have fun and chase someone. If the rider knows what he is doing you wont catch him.

Well smartass where do you draw the line. If some crack head shoplifts some crap at walmart would you think it ok to walk in guns a blazing chasing the thief through the store. Maybe we should chase them down the highway and end up mowing your wife and kids down for it. Bet you would sing a different tune then. Funny all you mofos would be up in arms had they injured or killed someone over a speeding ticket. Glad you ppl ain't cops, we have enough like you already. Like that dude said if I want to rob some place ill just get a buddy to get into a chase cause all the cops will go after him and leave the county wide open.

Personally I think if you run from the police whether it be on a bike or in a car, you should be held liable for anything that happens be it death or property damage. I do agree that some cops get chase crazy but there should be repercussions for breaking the law.

Hey people you sound like you want to be a detective, you're all over that Dula thread. Maybe if you go give the sheriff a rim job he will make you one. Can't be much worse than what they have now.
