Just read the artical in the Gaston Gazette. First let me ask why the Gazette considered this a front page story? Second let me say a few things about the article. The Gazette failed to mention what the warrant being served on Mr. Gutkowshi was for. I am sure there was a good reason for Mr. Gutkowshi being served with a warrant. The police don't ordinarly serve warrants without a reason. The paper stated that several neighbors walked over to express concern (In other words to stick their nose where it did not belong). I am sure Mrs. Rochele Lynn Prince was one of them and instead of staying in her own yard and watching her children she was being noisey. As far as the police car nearly running over her 3 year old on a tricycle why did she not have her 3 year old daughter and other children in their yard where they belonged in a situation like this. So to make a long story short it sounds like some Rednecks trying to get something (money) for nothing. Mrs.
Prince needs a class in parenting and safety.

I'll assure you this is not the only misconduct claim against the boys in blue. To be continued.
