Now that a judge from outside the area has made this ruling, isn't it interesting that all of those big mouths on here are quiet.

Most people here know that many of these posters just like to stir the pot since they are bored and retired down here. It gives them a rise. But you are right, it did get real quiet around here! Time for them to find a new schtick for shits and giggles. The town handled this appropriately. Still interested to know who told the officers they had a good case? Cost one officer his job, another his position and all of them their attorney's fees!

Tell me this is not true. Oh the lawsuits coming in from the other applicants if it is. This prune sat through a young lady (again, at the Y) explaining how an ex-police officer was terminated in Kill Devil Hills. However, to be hired a few days ago by Duck PD. Wait a second folks! I have property in Duck. There is no way, if true, this happened. If true, is the applicant pool that thin or bloodied with felons, miscreants, and the like. Hiring a terminated officer? A position of public trust! Someone, anyone, tell me this is simply not true. Then to think if there were applicants without such blemishes, the law suits against the department, the city, etc. Listening as the old coot I am you can see the officers here only transfer form one department to the other, but now the possibility of having to hire those terminated. Hummmmm? If true, well, to be shocked to know The Outer Banks Voice missed this one too. Investigative journalism at its best.

To Hiring the fired---You have no idea of the facts in this case. If true, this guy is another victim of Chief Brit dismissing officers who he feels threatened by, because of their intelligence and professionalism. If you want to be shocked by something, be shocked at the fact Brit is still chief.

Such the fool to follow the fools. Knight went after Farrow, and was fired for that. Not Britt. Intelligence - humm. But, I understand your family. Just saying!

Farrow is one of the chief's "boys." Knight had the integrity to report a situation which put fellow officers, as well as the public, at risk. Farrow stays; Knight is fired. Yet another example of Brit's so-called "leadership." Just saying.

And I am not family, just a citizen who thinks there is extreme favoritism in the PD.

Are you kidding commonsense. Knight is about as professional as he is tough. Menain – not at all. Soft spoken and a college degree does not mean you are a cop, professional, or anything in between. The young man is about as far off of left field as it goes. His time in Dare was a mess of fear. Smart young man sure. A cop - not a chance. If he was so clean in his reporting Farrow then I am sure his "Judge in the pocket" and attorney friends would have helped him to win the cause 100%. Simply, he is a financial and professional Croatan hwy like traffic crash! Nice try Joe Boxer. Now when Duck is sued by an applicant for hiring you, and not hiring the candidate who have not been fired I am sure your family can write in for you again. I am sure you had a thorough background investigation conducted. Humm, did Duck contact KDH or the KDHPD at all? Did they check your financials. Humm……. Good job Farrow for just standing your ground. Come on - public at risk. Ding bat! One more positive for the OBX LTs Club. Not such an easy job in the sandbox of cry babies.

Joe Knight hired by Duck PD nice one any one call training and standards to see how that filters out with the firing and lack of a background investigation. I was told by a friend at Duck no reason to apply calls were made to get Knight in the job because he was the fall guy for the judge's "no one talks to my son that way and stands up to me" vendetta. Good job Duck.

He could not have been hired already the backgrond just started? No other candidate was better off? A fired officer hired over everyone elses?
Those officers are honest

The officers who TRIED to do the RIGHT THING by reporting the police chief chief for his crooked actions were not fairly treated. I DO believe that Chief Britt was doing exactly what the officers accused him of and I am sure the chief doing the same thing right now! And btw, Judge J. Carlton Cole was the one who REDUCED THE BOND of the drunk driving illegal, LUIS ALBERTO RODRIGUEZ, who KILLED Joe Storie one year ago today, when Rodriguez ran a flashing red light and murdered an innocent man, and seriously injuring two others, one of which is still suffering from her very serious injuries. I think the corruption in Dare County is rampant and has been going on for years. Someone needs to investigate the judge, the police chief, AND the sorry DA's office, who did NOTHING to stop the second bond reduction hearing in court! Thumbs up to Judge Barnes who REFUSED to lower Rodriguez's bond and a big "BOOOOOO" and thumbs down to Judge J. Carlton Cole for allowing Rodriguez to flee ( and the judge KNEW that he had already fled once and was brought back by Raleigh Police. Cole let a high-risk defendant BOND OUT and JUST LET HIM GO FREE! I BELIEVE the officers who reported KDH's police chief. WHY would they risk their jobs to lie about the crookedness of Britt? BECAUSE THEY SAW WHAT WAS GOING ON AND THEY ARE GOOD PUBLIC SERVANTS! There are MANY in Dare County that SHOULD lose their jobs, starting with Judge Cole, then on to the DA's assistants and office, then to Chief Britt and his puppets. I am ashamed of Dare County!

Fools. Maybe Ennis and Knight will be vindicated soon - What about the officer who assisted in signing the original witness part to Ennis's complaint to the judge. That was Ruth right! He signed the papers Ennis sent to the judge along with Ennis’s father in law, and some others. Maybe he can help make things right for his pals. He has assisted in trying to destroy the character and abilities of Brinkley, he can help here. Also, what has happened to Ennis and Knight who asked to have a Captain terminated, a Lieutenant terminated, and two Sergeants reduced in rank? Are those complaints still being looked into? Knight has a case with the Muppets or maybe with the world court. Knight will be made right as soon as he drops his almonds and gains a man’s voice. Ennis, just hang in there, you will get out of the financial toilet you put yourself in. The next Masonic meeting will have Ennis, Lay, Tillet, and the ever silent but great to help stoke the fire Moye to scheme more. Knight will be invited as the mascot wearing a duck suit. It will all make for a great Lifetime movie. Investigate everyone in Dare.
