I have attempted to post several comments that asked hard questions and pointed out things that were not in favor of the town or chief, they were not slander nor did they make accusation. I used real email addresses and real names. They were not posted. I tried several times, they are filtering out what is not their way of thinking.

After reading alot of the posts on the Sentinel some were down right ugly towards Sandy. That's why I'm a bit surprised posts were screened. I have seen that on more then one occasion on the Voice. I believe everyones voice should be heard excluding vulgarity and slander.

Abe, I don't know what to tell you but there was a comment in one of the comment sections on march 2nd and today it was gone? Sorry to break the news to you but the Sentinel has more spin than a maytag! By the way Ricky Martin I love Miley cyrus and yes I do have my hands up!!!!

Well you guys may have a point. Let us take it a little slower and put it into perspective. Do you think it was a coincidence that Russ Lay being one of the Judges puppets would challenge Britt's child's residency the same day that Judge Hinton dismisses 6 of 8 complaints against Frank Parish? I don't really believe in coincidences of that magnitude. Furthermore isn't it a bit odd that Ross or Rob whoever wrote the story challenging the residency would close the comments. Tells me that they must have been getting a lot of support for Britt and little for the spin they were trying to take. This entire beach is pathetic, I would be willing to bet the majority of the negative post on this topic are from the law enforcement officers that have complained on Britt and/or their families. It is my opinion that to stoop as low as going after Britt's family is a sure sign of desperation.

Maybe a panel should investigate why ed anderson and britt are posting on topix during work hours. Great teamwork guys.
I agree with one of your points little big town and im certain cops a writing on here as mentioned above. as far as Mr.lay is concerned don't know enough to weigh in on that topic. It seems possible that both could happen...maybe one of the other was investigating? Who knows? Where there's smoke there is certainly fire unless you have one of those fancy smoke machines like sandy seamans!

Tillet's feud is not really with KDH. It is with Britt and has been since April 2010. It really esculated when Merrill got fired. Check the history. If you're going to jump on a band wagon do some research on the horse pulling it.

Including the new on on the OB Voice where Britt used a deputies address to get his kids into Dare County schools when he lives in Currituck. The same deputy who is rumored to have received special treatment from Britt. It sure is an interesting case.
John it sounds like you might be on the seem wagon with four officers, a judge, and a reporter, and I don't mean Sandy. Maybe she will wave as you go by. Don't forget who started the big mess that needs to be investigated, now it's gotten to the point, desperate people are grasping at straws.

Outsider - I only know one of the people you assume I know, it's one of the officers. Might that cloud my impartiality - I expect it does somewhat. Not sure how that changes the fact that Britt apparently enrolled his child in Dare County schools using one of his officers home address.

Don't really have a dog in this fight other than finding the entirity of the story quite interesting.

Don't forget the chief lived in Dare county when he first went to work. What ever has been going on in his personal life is his business. I can't blame him for not wanting to live in the turmoil that he has worked in for the past several months. I'm sure he has debated whether to stay or go. If he had not ben threatened he would have probably been gone. Would you want to live in an area where anyone could walk into a school and get information on your family and friends, or even walk in where you work and get all the personnell files they want without a court order or even a hearing. If Britt decides to stay he will get his personal affairs in order, maybe he will have time once he gets this battle behind him. Maybe it will be much easier without so much powerfull interference. But I think until then his personal life should, JUST THAT.

Sorry about the typo in the last comment, an john doe I appoligize for the assumption. I can certainly appreciate your concerm for your friend. I am just amazed that something that started in a meeting with a judge, town officials and their attorney almost two years ogo, according to the articles, has spread so much and effected so many people. Like i said in the previous comment Britt did live in Dare county, if his family did in fact go back to stay with friends for awhile then so be it. Is that worthy of news headlines with all the turmoil going on in the area. It could simply be handled by pointing it out to the proper people. My opinion is that all the reteric is just a feeble attempt by a few important people to stir the pot one more time.

Judge Tillett is about qualified to be a Superior Court Judge as I am qualified to pilot a spaceship to the moon. A political appointee with no real legal experience...

Say what you want about Tillett, but Amber Davis is the best damn judge around. Period!

I'm always intrigued by politics and the like. Given that it's a story that hits close to home makes it infinitely more interesting. I work in KDH and have never met Chief Britt, couldn't pick him out of a two-man lineup, just find the whole incident interesting. I dislike anyone who abuses their place in life and takes advantage of the system, no matter who it is. And I don't know if Chief Britt did or didn't, he's the only one that can answer that question. And like they say "He ain't talkin". lol

John Doe I wish I could answer that question for you, but I can't. I do know he doesn't like people who abuse their power either, that's why he's still there. Apparently he has been suspended, interagated, investigated, poked and proded by some pretty powerfull people and not found guilty of any ethical or criminal acts yet. I guess we'll find out when all the smoke settles.
