He is right.

Johnston county is a terrible place to live.

Schools are terrible, the mexican gangs and the african gangs need to kill each other off.

In my opinion, someone is “pulling the wool over” the eyes of Johnston Co.
I live on the same road as steve bizzell and he did NOT protect and serve me.
A hunter put out scraps mixed w/ a deadly pesticide Counter. I became sick 3 times after dealing with animals dying in my garden and holding a dying pet full of the poison. I nearly died in the hospital and have my medical records to prove it!
. steve bizzell stated to my sister that he knew who was doing the poisoning, and in fact had known it FOR YEARS!
In the end all I got, when the cases were dropped, was ILD, dead pets and other animals , and a knowlege that was NO JUSTICE FOR ME AND NONE FOR THE DOZENS OF ANIMALS THAT WERE MURDERED. ALL UNDER THE WATCHFUL EYE OF THE sHERIFF!
The cases were closed and never resolved.
He will have to answer to a higher being, to explain the reason he allowed this serial animal killer to get away with murder of all those poor animals…… And knowing I was sick and sat back and did nothing….. Oh he did say quote “I made it hot and he got out of the kitchen” one of his great mediphors.
In my opinion, the hunters and farmers (who found dead animals on their land) and the farmer that sold the poison to begin with… wanted these cases to “go away” and they did.

Maybe the ACLU or NAACP was poisonung the animals to keep them away from the clandestine hiding spots being used to spy on the sheriff. The new leash law will hopefully stop the wandering animals and henceforth stop the cruel poisonings. Maybe the poison scraps were left out to feed illegal foreigners which are very abundant, in hopes of blaming the sheriff. The ACLU and NAACP are as credible as my conspiracy theory in this instance. Maybe these groups should shift gears and stop tolerating black on black murders and growing mexican gangs in North Carolina.

"The new leash law will hopefully stop the wandering animals and henceforth stop the cruel poisonings."
The lease law doesn't cover foxes, cats, raccoons, birds, possums and other wild life.
Finding the dead possum lying beside of a dead cat under my grandchildren's playhouse was the last draw. These poor animals were trying to get to my water fountain.
I can be rediculed for speaking up for the animals. That's ok I expect it.
But while lying in a hospital room for two weeks gasping for breath, cronic anemia, lung disease, hypoxic, oxygen deficiency, atypial pneumonia,and Terbufos and Arsenic exposure (this was on my diagnosis) gave me a taste of what these animals went through..... before they died. This was the last of 3 times I was in the hospital. The first time was arsenic. Someone needs to tell me why these cases were not reported to the highest authority.
These poisonings went on for years and should have been stopped with at least a warning..And we're still dealing w/ animals dying and pets being stolen from pens.
Living here on bizzell Road is not always good for your health but my family has lived on this land for over a 100 years. So I just keep an eye out for my family and even neighbors who are turning a blind eye after their pets were found missing or lying dead.
Google Terbufos or Counter. This was found in dozens of animals. This is what Rollins Laboratory found in these animals and what was written in my diagnosis... Terbufos and arsenic.

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Amen.

This is Bonnie, Connie's Twin. The date is May 9th 2009. I thought someone would like to have an update on Connie's comments above. This type of pesticide stays in your lungs forever, and a small amount can enter your lungs easier than alot. She is in the Hospital at Raleigh, N.C. fighting for her life. She is in a drug-induced coma and on a resperator. I have not been able to here her sweet voice for almost a month. Her doctor says she was exposed to a deadly pestcide, and the lining of her lungs look like raw meat. What else can I say, she's my soul-mate and best friend and my TWIN. THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT NEVER HELPED HER!!!!!!

no they don't vote- they don't have social security numbers...and without a social security number you can't take a crap in this country- SO where is all the free shit they are getting you ignorant person?!!("they get everything") You know What? Depending on where they are working...the LEGAL WHITE US CITIZEN EMPLOYER is using false social security numbers for tax purposes. So they PAY taxes but don't get the return. ALOT of them don't make ENOUGH money to pay taxes in first place. FURTHERMORE, you pay taxes everytime you BUY anything. Right? They have to eat and drink and buy clothes and water and electricity just like any other human being. They are putting FAR MORE into our economy and community than they are taking from it. So the "excuses for your dislike" people like you quote and rant about are entirely self serving prejudice baloney and unfounded. And Honestly...Sheriff Bizzel has no RIGHT to hold a public serving office and spew that RACIST GARBAGE!If he had "mis-spoke" about black people he would have been fired. Period. OR GOD FORBID- if he were black and spoke about white people in a negative way. FIRED. You are only defending him because you agree with him. AND that's not the point really when you hold such an important position as he. An apology is nice but we all know where he stands now and it can only affect the county negatively. Just a question for all you racists out there...what if the illegal residents in North Carolina had white skin, listened to country music, and came from Canada or england and had pretty british accents? ASK yourself in the privacy of your own home (don't worry- noone will see you actually THINKING) WOULD YOU STILL have the same HATE and disregard toward these fellow human beings?

****YOU ARE IGNORANT. AND I MEAN THAT IN THE TRUE SENSE OF THE WORD. HOW'S THIS: When I look around I see a bunch of uneducated white trash racists. Obviously you've never left your small little world. By the way- HOW does someone like you EARN enough money to owe/pay income tax?

Steve Bizzell doesn't give a shit about the people of Johnston County if anyone believes that they got serious problems. He is a high and mighty pig that has let his title go to his head. He takes a public stand on driving while impaired and wants the taxpayers to think he's this better than anyone else person who never does any wrong but look at his own brother and his dwi arrests and see how the system works for the good old boys .....can you say dismissed???? why should that surprise anyone. My question to the ppl of johnston county is this how can he remain in office after all the things he has said and done espically to the hispanic community and why isnt his office held accountable for the death of the fouroaks boy who the hernandez man killed while he was drunk....all his previous dwi's were dismissed....this child might be here with us today if Bizzell has did his job and locked him up before he got 4 dwi's. I have lived here all my life and we have some good honest hard working ppl in our community but something has to be done....we can't afford to look the other way anymore. Bizzell needs a wake up call .

We all know that people are not the same deep down inside, we all come from different backgrounds, communties, and different places. But at the end of the day we are all the same, we are still human. Some people are very uneduacted thats why they make the comments they make (Bizzell) But yet they have the upper hand. But i do strongly believe that what goes around comes around.
