What does it matter what Crawford was doing because the sheriff's office is guilty of wrong doing too. So don't put down one man for doing wrong and think that just because you wear a badge makes you better. Crawford made mistakes and he is paying for it but my God shoot somebody that many times in the back. That is just too much. Then shoot yourself and blame Crawford for it. Longo is just as low as a drug dealer to me. They need to clean up the sherrif office before trying to clean up Lenoir. Wrong is wrong no matter what!

Again, my argument isnt that he wasnt doing wrong..its people on here talking about him like they know him personally...I have no doubt you know of him or are an aquaintance of him or his ex wife..but if you truly knew him then you would see that YES, he did live through this, YES he could POSSIBLY not see prison time..but like right or wrong says...he was shot 15 times..if you know him then you know what his life is like now and he KNOWS very few people nowadays...

Did the judge ask for the personel records in order to determine if the defendant shot Longo or if Longo shot himself?

I have no judgement about this matter. Only the facts mam. If Longo shot himself, then it doesn't make sense that the defendant would be charged with assult on Longo. If the defendant did it, then he should be charged. Is that what the judge is trying to determine by requesting the records??

LLLLLL, wow you got personal really fast...did he pass you by in the parking lot? Look, I have not claimed to be his only girl so you dont have to wonder about that...As far as him picking up girls in a parking lot? Well, sleep easy, he's not picking girls up in parking lots or anywhere else for that matter, he's on house arrest and has been for a long while. Again, I simply stated that he didnt just walk away with no punishment. He has suffered more pain than most convicted murderers by taking those bullets, I was simply making it clear that it isnt like he has not been punished at all. As far as his "trifflin" ex wife, I dont know her nor do I care to and I most certainly dont care what she or him did while they were married. It is every persons choice who they choose to associate with, I could care less if someone chooses to not associate with him and I'm fairly sure he could too. I can take what people are saying because they are opinions and you know what they say about those. So HONEY, I will continue to post mine along with everyone else....

Oh but yes there's a hell of a lot of difference.
I don't think any dope dealers ever took an oath to protect and serve!!! Don't get me wrong drug dealing is wrong but when you take an oath to protect and serve and abuse that trust and power to lie cheat, steal and bear false witness against others, I think you should be held to a higher standard and be punished to far greater extent than a drug dealer. I also don't think that an officer that is sent to a prison should be protected and housed separately they knew full well what they were doing was wrong and should be prepared to accept the consequences.

I fully agree with you, I was just saying that people that think cops are better than anyone else are in for a rude awakening. I think that cops shouldn't be protected in prison either cause they are just as wrong as anybody that has been sent to prison. It's a shame that people that are suppose to protect us are worse than any people that are in jail. And they can hide behind a badge.

<quoted text>Man you just cant stand it can you but it's too bad because it's happening. Yes they will be sealed but and here is the kicker, it will open a can of worms that will allow people forced to resign since Jones was elected to file suit if they have a case and I am sure Herb Pierce is more than happy to help them. This will also allow the SBI to better investigate the doings of the Sheriff over the last few years not to mention a few other agencies that are preparing to knock on the Sheriffs door. Have fun dodging the incoming questions.
Geesh! You people really do think everyone works for the Sherrif. You know they make medication for paranoia now a days. I'm not going to have to dodge shit because I DON'T WORK THERE, I'VE NEVER WORKED THERE, I HAVE NO INTENTION OF WORKING THERE, I DON'T KNOW ANYONE THAT WORKS THERE! Damn! I'm just saying, read the f'in article and it clearly states the records will be sealed meaning it will not be available to the public, only those that were listed. Damn!

Interesting.......

LENOIR N.C.— A judge declared a mistrial this week in the case of a man who shot two deputies in 2008 after not getting files he requested about an officer who recently resigned from the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office.
James Vance Crawford IV, 32, was on trial this week for shooting two Caldwell County deputies on Sept. 24, 2008 as they were serving a search warrant on him. The shooting took place at Crawford's home on N.C. 268 in the Happy Valley area of Caldwell County. He also was charged with selling cocaine and marijuana.

Sgt. Erle Davis and Capt. Mike Longo were the two Caldwell officers shot during the incident.
Longo appears to be at the center of Superior Court Judge Allen Baddour’s ire and decision to order a mistrial in the case on Wednesday morning.
Longo was subpoenaed to testify in Crawford’s trial, as well as other officers with the sheriff’s office, Lenoir, Granite Falls and Mooresville police departments, along with fire department and EMS employees, according to court files.
According to court filings, on Monday, Baddour ordered the personnel and information on a sheriff’s office investigation of Longo be brought to court for review by 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Some of the personnel file for Longo was turned over but it was not complete.
So on Wednesday, Baddour called for the personnel file of those “who were terminated, fired, or who resigned as a result of the incidents referenced in the materials turned over to the Court by the Sheriff on November 27, 2012,” the order says.
On Nov. 21, the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office announced the resignations of six employees but officials wouldn’t give reasons for the resignations, calling it a confidential personnel matter. The resignations involved four Sheriff’s Office personnel and two communications personnel.
In his order, Baddour said the personnel and investigative file on Longo had handwritten notes and referred to things such as photos and videos but those were not included in the files turned over. The order said the files didn’t say who conducted the investigation or interviews or what “the triggering mechanism for this investigation was, by whom it was made, or when it was made.”
The order goes on to say the material turned over has references to others associated with the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office who may have participated in activities that might call into question their reliability as witnesses and may need to be disclosed to Crawford and his attorney.
In his order on Wednesday, Baddour called for all records and documents, as well as photos, videos, recorded phone calls, text messages, voicemails and dispatch recordings or any other documents or communication pertaining to any of those former sheriff’s employees. He also called for the information turned over to be sealed.
On Tuesday during court, Baddour said he would allow disclosure of the records of Longo to the defense and prosecution. He issued an order preventing Prosecutor Nancy Lee from disclosing the material to anyone other than District Attorney Jay Gaither and preventing defense Attorney Herbert Pearce from showing the materials to his client. However, Pearce is allowed to discuss the materials with Crawford, the order says.
This case was dropped by the court because Jones would not turn over personnel files, which reflects badly on CCSD but my question is.. Is the county now liable for any damages or subject to lawsuits since hiding the facts of staff was more important than seeing justice served. Where does this case go from here??

He may have been shot up by the ccso but he also fired back so as for him not deserving it he may not have but what i do know is that he is a rating sob and he indeed rated dustin and eddie out for stuff he helped them to steal so go figure the detective that questioned him allowed him to testify against the bumgarners so he isnt a snitch BULLSHIT THE BIGGEST IN CALDWELL AND HE WILL SNITCH ON THE WRONG ONE! hell he aint stopped the drug use or the sales of it he does it all the time sales his perscribed xanax shoots pain pills in his vein now i can go on and on if u like me to

this is so lame why the hell should there be an argument about this he indeed shot the police for coming in on him and he was indeed saleing cocaine and pot. So whats the deal why argue about it. Any one that knows him knows what happen and knows he aint nothing but a wanna be dealer.Yea so what he has been on house arrest for 4 yrs that still hasnt stopped him from dealing or stealing! Has never been a snitch? oh my thats the biggest lie ive seen yet he is and has indeed snitched on several ppl including his own damn family.so with that being said hisgirl hope ya know what your in for!!
