The Bermuda Triangle of Justice
Today there were news cars all over Lumberton. Later, I saw where WDAM posted a story about an alleged shooting in the parking lot of the Shell Station that occurred in December. It seems that the police are now looking for help from the citizens. Now, I know I think differently from others but generally, evidence is gathered right after the event in order to be more credible. It’s a month later and the citizens of Lumberton are just hearing about this incident but keeping people from hanging out in a vacant parking lot is more substantive to certain Lumberton Police officers than an actual shooting and impersonation of an officer. Who knows? If the group that used to hang out at the Shell station were permitted to hang out, they probably would have had more details that could have led to a possible arrest of “Officer Bad-a**.”
A few weeks ago, someone in boxed me about the December incident but I was preparing for an election challenge and didn’t want to deal with the management of the Shell Station; Lumberton’s Bermuda Triangle of Justice. It seems that whatever goes wrong at Shell can easily get covered up; whether it’s a stealing alderman or a shooting in the parking lot. For some reason, in this Age of Technology, no one managed to get a photo of the perpetrator or the car tag. I’ve received other reports of illegal activity taking place at the Shell station but I was also informed that if you give the manager a little hush change, she will look the other way. Well, that was proven when she, for some reason, charged Hugh J. McGraw a fine for stealing a lighter in return for not pressing charges. What else is going on that’s getting the blind eye treatment for some pocket change? It’s also interesting that the police department never alerted the public about the incident but I guess public safety isn’t a priority. I guess we can tune in to WDAM and WHLT tonight to find out what’s happening in Lumberton.
