I think King, needs to grow up! This won't help the mayor get re-elected. Please That is stupid why don't King worry about bigger problems, They are just a small town who wants to be noticed by the bigger cities, I heard that one time the Police Dept wanted a Chopper ? They need to get rid of all the nuts in the King Gov't

I guess I need to call the state troopers for an escort if I need to get over to my elderly mothers if her power goes out or when shes having heart problems. Thanks to King I have to worry about getting over there. There is NOTHING wrong over there in King. Roads are clear and no trees down ALL over the place. Why dont they worry about the people with no power who DONT live in the city of KING. I live on 66 and up the road the Flat Shoals road of Quaker Gap has no power. What Idoits. Its like stokes county schools waiting until the last minute to let us know if school has a 2 delay or no school.

State of emergency was issued for City of King and Stokes County. Curfew issued Saturday 12 midnight - 5 AM. Drive through King anytime 12-5 and you are apt to be pulled over by the King PD.

This was too much of a controlling, comunistic action for a so called city, of the USA. I realize their concern for their officers, however they do not have the right to take away the rights of others. It put alot of the young people in more danger. They drove longer distances to get beer in other counties. I think this is an action that will come back to haunt them.

No, just stay home. They'll get to her in a week or two. Stupid, isn't it?

Next time, they'll put up check points at the county and city lines. Then violate your 4th amendment rights (illegal search and seizure).

The city had to be shut down! Lives depended on it because they had a stop light out. And you know chaos was about to ensue because no one knew what to do without the stop light.

Good youtube.
