Fact Checker, All of your facts are pretty good except for the number of people. There were at least 175-200 people at the Pit on this night. As to officers hiding in the store, this is not correct people were fighting in the store when the officers arrived they cleared them out and made everyone else leave the store and had the clerk lock the door and then returned outside with the other officers to assist with clearing the 7/11 parking lot and McDonalds and the side street. Folks this is a big problem and it is not going to be solved talking trash to each other on here. It is going to take the entire community to fix it.

Well you should probably talk with the KDH officers because they are saying that the Chief was inside 7-11 with Mark Evans and did not go outside while other police officers were calling for help.

This came straight from a few of kdh cops, one of which has a wife that used to be a cop as well.

If they want to hide because they were out numbered...fine, but they need to fix this problem before it gets out of hand.

I don't need to talk to any KDH officers nor their wives. I was there for the incident. I observed what happened as it happened. It is being worked on but it is not going to be a quick fix and as I said before will take the entire community to remedy this. It didn't get this way overnight and will not be fixed overnight. I believe the debacle the the KDH Police Dept. has gone through for the past year or more has caused some of these problems to go unchecked. Morale has been so low in the dept. a lot of the officers have been afraid to do their jobs or take an aggressive stance against these gang members. Hopefully now that most of that witch hunt is over they can put heat on this bunch of thugs and make it less attractive to frequent KDH and Dare County.

Clean house in KDH government and get some real leaders back in there, not the girls club they got now. Special meeting coming up on messy yards, OMG...this crowd has its priorities in order. What's next, yard sales? The gang bangers are coming here because the bars welcome them, the white girls welcome them (go figure, for dope?) and the cops don't hassle them. Its that simple.

Charlie, Just because there is one problem in town doesnt mean the rest of the towns issues go away. Just like with the Federal Government, when we are at war the rest of government doesnt shut down. Just shows how people like you are so out of touch with how any thing works. Grow up and stop being a hater.

The whole thing is a mess and yes I blame the owners of the Pit for setting the stage for trouble, this is not the first, underage drugs and drinking have been an issue there too. I for one think the fellow should step down from office, we don't need our kids thinking this kind of thing is tolerated by us parents. If he is a real man, he will step down and clean up his business.

Why stop there? Lets just put up Toll Booths instead and use the money to lower our Property Taxes.

Instead of Police at the booths, we use Border Patrol Agents with dogs and X-Ray Machines.

An out-of-town girl was arrested with a shitload of Ecstasy at the Pit several years ago. That's the only thing I can recall having been a issue there.

How is it that some locals keep harping on property taxes? We have VERY LOW property taxes here, people.

Do some real homework and you would be shocked how good we have it as far as taxes.

Our insurances are high, but the taxes are very good. You would realize this if you'd just do some checking...

NO Copper, Warren Judge's comments were give the police an opportunity to investigate and determine who the people were in the fight. If they were members of gangs let them make that determination without tipping off the bad guys. I have covered Warren and his service to this County for years. He always talks to us and answers difficult questions with facts and frank answers. Warren believes in full disclosure of all public information at the time as far as who, what and where. His comments were to help the police make arrests,if they needed a few hours to make those arrests, then let them do it and protect our offices until the bad guys are cuffs. Warren has told me that he supports all police efforts and it does not matter who's business and who is involved. If you recall Warren was the one offical who was on the radio whenever we wanted him after after Irene giving us all the information and answering our direct questions. You need to find someone else to blame, Warren is one of our good guys.

Lets not blame blacks for this problem...lets get to the real root, which is the self loathing, white, guilt laden liberals who allowed their kids to embrace the poison of HIP HOP CULTURE.
Our society has been GHETTOFIED! Our lexicon is full of Ebonics: Back in the Day and My Bad being two examples of phrases culled from ghetto culture that middle class whites use without second thought.
This is the beginning of the downward spiral for the next generations of youth.
Forget that previous generations have been bombarded with glorification's of Sex,Money, Drugs, and Violence...The HIP HOP culture has combined all four into ONE
socially destructive stew.
The pariahs of the past( Heavy Metal, Death Metal, Punk, even Rock and Roll) never combined all the antisocial aspects together like Hip Hop Culture has.
Parents need to take a good hard look at the crumbling foundation they ignore...SOME THINGS ARE JUST NOT GOOD FOR KIDS...
This isn't Racist or Bigoted-it's a serious problem that we need to address.
Don't give black pop culture a pass because of self loathing , white guilt...In the past we've had no problem condemning
and blaming Heavy Metal for bad behavior...but since that was a white oriented genre it was ok (even though it's basically a harmless form of musical expression compared to the last 20 years of rap...)
Bad ideas are bad ideas...children don't need any more help when it comes to bad influences...What they need is to understand the difference between Prejudice and Common Sense!

Very frustrated by this happening!! So when there is a fight in an establishment, that serves booze It's my understanding that A.L.E. be notified and that the business owner possibly be charged at risk of loosing their liquor license. This can possibly happen after so many complaints of fights. Are they being notified to follow through?(ALE) please tell me that there is not some official standing in the way of this and preventing this from happening!!!! We have the agents let them come in and clean that crap up on the beach because you all know this is becoming a big problem for all of us Dare county resident's!!!

I think your fears may be realistic. Somehow all these booze joints escape the attention of the Fire Marshal (200 people at the Pit?) etc. They all sort of slip stuff in...like scores of outdoor seats. But then some high level politicians like to takes their kids there befor the rap DJ's come on under the windmill
