Anyone who has met Roger Taylor knows that there is more that meets the eye here! Roger is a very caring and compassionate person who would do anything to help a person in need. Volunteered with him at Lumberton Rescue and always said if I was trapped in a wrecked car - someone please call Roger - he was the "man" when it came to wrecks and extrication's. Roger I will keep you and your family in my prayers and thoughts. I hope all goes well and May God Bless

Exactly what is that the eye can not see. I guess the Big Guys in Raleigh do not really know what they are doing. I guess it is ok for him to burn your house down too but at least he can pull you from your burning car. Oh that is right he made the people leave the house before he burned it down. What if you wanted to get rid of your husband, if you have one, I guess he would just stand there and look at the car burn with your husband burning in it, and he did that for you so that is ok. Who knows if he knew whether or not the guy was in the pool hall when he burned it. They were suppose to be out there cathing criminals not acting like them. That goes to show that no matter what you "think" you know about someone there is a possible other side that only he or she knows. If their job got to them that bad, seeing criminals getting back on the street they should have changed their profession, not act like them.

You are exactly right. Just because you are in a profession that helps people does not give a right to turn right around and hurt other people. Doing wrong to other people makes you a criminal !!!!

First of all, you have to see who is making the accusations. Someone who has a grudge and has something to gain. I like how everyone has already convicted them, but then again, that's america.....GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN NOT GUILTY!!!!! You see that I didn't use the word innocent, because in the court of law there is not such term. We will all have to wait and see how this turns out. I don't know Roger Taylor, but I know C.T. and this is rediculous. If someone seized millions of dollars, why would they risk their reputation on $11,000. It's all he said, she said, and the criminals put away are doing all the talking.

1st thing is....most of these guys were instructors in my BLET class, and i'm proud to have worked with them, if only for a little while.I think that railroading Roger, CT, and the rest is the biggest misuse of time in Lumberton. get them back on the street where they can keep doing the fine job that they were doing. " I know him too" who writes on post like these, will never put themselevs in harms way to help anyone, but you will be the 1st one to call the police. you will pray anyone shows up to help you, but you will curse the way the way they do a job, that you will not do yourself. try walking a mile with them, before you stand against them!!

In North Carolina or should I say Robeson county every person is GUILTY in the eyes of the police officers who MOST are guilty of being corrupt !! Guilty without the chance to prove innocence because the cops lie on the stand to protect their badge !!! I hate LT.DAN !!!!!!!!
He is a lieing piece of crap and I pray one of these days he will be caught being a scumbag police officer the REAL people KNOW he is !! One of these days LT.DAN you will have to prove your innocense. I hate LT. DAN from FAIRMONT North Carolina !!!! Took me over 40 years to actually hate someone and this man is not worthy of the dirt on the bottom of my shoes !!!
One of these days LT.DAN you WILL have to ANSWER for the ILLEGAL activity YOU take PART of !!! Hating you but far enough away that YOU can't shoot me !!!! You WILL GO TO HELL !!!

NO PEOPLE POLICE ARE NEVER WRONG

I MEAN I CAN NOT COUNT ON MY HANDS THE TIMES I WAS BEING HELD AT GUNPOINT AND USED MY CELLULAR PHONE TO CALL THE POLICE AND THEY SHOWED UP AND BURNED DOWN THE ROBBERS HOUSE AND SENT HIM TO JAIL

DO YOU REALIZE THE DANGERS OF PULLING OVER AN 89 YEAR OLD LADY, THATS WHY THEY ALWAYS CALL FOR 5 SQUAD CARS

COPS DO A TREMENDOUS JOB PROTECTING US, AND I AGREE WITH THESE PEOPLE

IF THEY DID IT WHO CARES
BUT THEM BACK ON THE STREET TO GET REAL CRIMINALS

It is just how the the Rolling Stones say it in their song, EVERY COP IS A CRIMINAL AND ALL THE SINNERS ARE SAINTS. I hope that they throw those 2 in Prison for a very long time.I also hope that the other prisoners make there lives a living hell each and every day.

Overall folks I hate what has come about. If things are they way the court and the jury found them to be, then they (deputies and all involved) should be punished. I am disappointed because I went to school middle grades through High school graduation and attended college with Steve Lovin. I am disappointed with those men, whom when I knew and spoke with them on occasion, that being a law enforcement official was what they dreamed of doing. To Steve and Roger, I am sorry. I only wish that I could go back and warn them of the temptations that are/were out in our world today. I am sorry for those that have been victimized by these men. I am sorry they lost sight of why they are/were doing what they so longed to do. As much as we hate, we have to someday, one day forgive them. It is difficult, but Roger and Steve were little and simple humna beings once: with that, WE ALL need to stop and think how simple and precious life is, NO MATTER WHAT JOB WE HAVE OR DO. Good Roger and Steve. God's speed to us all.

You can all say what you want about this whole situation but unless you know the person, ACTUALLY know them, who they are, how they were reaised, what they believed in, you can't really speak truthfully. I am proud to say to do know Roger Taylor and I have since I was 11. I know him, I know his his family. Not just know of him, like many people will claim, but I know him. I am proud of him, the work he did and the person I know he is. Perfect, no! Guilty of all that the world now percieves him to be guilty of- NO WAY! No one's heart was in their work they way his was. NO one was as proud to do the work as he was. He'll do the time he was sentenced to with the same dignity with which he lives his life. The good he did and what he still has to give will not be undone by this.

Old Friend, I totally agree with you 100%. I think alot of the verdict and items that came out were because mainly the Sheriff and the District Attorney did not like each other one bit. Roger would've been in line to be Sheriff down the road. If there was anyone whom loved doing what he was doing, it was Roger. Gosh he was in the Lumberton Resuce Squad before we got out of high school. He helped his parents business while going to get his BLET from RCC. It is incredible some of the things that have been said. I spoke with one of his closer friends two days ago and alot of what has been brought to light is untrue, and I believe that. Great points about Roger Old Friend, I totally agree. Take care.
