e Editor:
I read your article in the February 23rd edition concerning Hank would all help with the habi
--- On Mon, 3/2/09, John Lanier <jlanier@transylvaniatimes.
I attended the jury trial and I would like to make some corrections on the statements made by District Attorney Jeff Hunt, that were clearly not true.
Number 1..Hank Few was found NOT GUILTY of Assault by Strangulation by the Jury.
He did not "choke the victim".
Number 2..The jury did not hear testimony for "two and half days".
The witnesses testified for less than a whole day.
Number 3..The two did not argue over "one of the children" They were arguing about infidelity on the "victims" part. That was made very clear at the trial.
In fact there was only one child then.
Number 4..The parties involved do not have two children together.
In fact this past Friday, February 27Th. Ms. Galloway stated in a mediation orientation, that "she was not sure who the father is".
Number 5..Jeff Hunt says "Few ran away when officers arrived and was apprehended a few weeks later". The fact is, Few was arrested when He returned to Transylvania county, three months later.
Jeff Hunt goes on to say there are pending charges against Mr.Few for Breaking and Entering and Felony First degree burglary.
How does someone break and enter their own home?
Mr. Few moved into this house in January 2008.
He had a key to the house,all his furniture, his clothes,his daughter,his toothbrush,his groceries, were there inside this house.He left for work that morning after waking up in that residence, as he did the morning before that, and the morning before that!
Would a jury not find this "rightly suspicious"?
Who went to the Grand Jury with these ludicrous charges?
The burglary charge was brought four months after the alleged incident.
Hank Few was convicted in court February 18Th. Six days later on Tuesday February 24Th, the "victim" went to the Buncombe County Detention center to visit with Hank Few with her children.
Her story ,she told him that day was and is, that when she tried not to testify during the trial.
The DA took her off the witness stand and took her back into chambers.
There he told her that if she did not testify, and say exactly what he had told her to say and rehearsed over and over, that he would have her arrested right there on the spot for perjury.
She stated that he even had a police officer present preparing to take her to jail.
Also she tells the story that after dropping these same charges in District court this past fall, the DA's office called her and told her that if she did not bring these charges back up before the Grand Jury, Donna (Hanks Mother) would take custody of her daughter Maggie.
eriffs department. Subsequently she was then taken away in the back of the sheriffs car, seen in movement driving towards the jail. The police scanner said narcotics were found in the car.
A phone call to the jail soon afterwards that night, the deputy who answered said she was in the holding cell. Mysteriously, the next morning,when I spoke to the magistrate, there "was no record on the computer" and she was never there.
Her children were seen in the car at the time.
How does this happen?
How was Hank found Guilty of assaulting a government official when in handcuffs and shackles?
ims" attorney bring Hank to trial without his attorney present?
Hank asked three times for his counsel and was refused.

I understand that when the survey was scored the Chief was 95% BURNS was 03%, See how many officers has left the police dept. How many have applied for a job at the Sheriff's Dept. since Burns became deputy chief? If I had as many knifes stabbing me in the back as Chief Wilde I would be mad as heck and under much stress if someone you trusted was doing all they could to get your job. I hope that the city is not dumb enought to make Burns or Galloway Chief,both are one and the same. The board should ask the officers who they respect. They would tell the truth if they would not loose their jobs. Ask any person that know Burns what they think of him and nine out of ten will say he is a SMF. I know one more complaint on Chief Wilde he is fair to all his officers. I SAY CITY DON'T BE STUPID AGAIN HIRE CHIEF WILDE BACK!!!!!!!!!!

If these are the 15 charges for dismissing Wilde the people in Brevard are not stupid to believe them. The wording in these charges had to be written by a lawyer! Which of the 15 were complaints by Marty Burns? Dean Galloway? Or anyone in the Burns clan that have been a part of the "cancer" that is hurting all the good men and women that are officers in the BPD. Now is the time for the true characters of these "bad" cops to be revealed. Time to clean house and get order and respect in the BPD. Wilde was a "thorn" in too many city peoples lives at City Hall.
