Sorry, but I feel that it was all about money and how the verdict was determined. We don't know how many of the jurors was Belmont Residents. So of course for their own concerns and not wanting to be harrased by Belmonts Finest, yes they ruled in the wrong way. Belmont PD is so crooked it's not even funny. I know I have witnessed it first hand. Just like how they allow William Jacob Laughlin to continue to drive around under the influence of drugs and even alchol... But hey you guys think all this good in the Strange Place Called GASTON COUNTY

If the Belmont PD is so crooked why dont' your bring some of the crooked things they do to the attention of the citizens. My friend I am afraid you are like so many other people. If things don't go to suit you, you complain. Go walk a mile in these officers shoes and then say what you have to say
