Once again: WHERE WAS DON COX?
(commented on March 5th, 2020 @ 4:03 pm)
Wow! Don Cox had the "nerve" to call someone lazy? He is one of the laziest men I have ever seen. He stays on facebook the majority of the day trying to get some recognition and praise for himself through his constant food post,etc.

Don Cox is one of the most negative individuals I have ever encountered. He is an egotistical, know-it-all, but he doesn't know much at all in reality.

Johnny Anderson Addresses Beaufort County Commissioners Regarding Cory Anderson's Death
(commented on February 18th, 2020 @ 8:39 am)
February 17,2020

As much as we wanted to call, we could not! It is against the law. It is policy.

This is not an exact quote as we don’t recall word for word but this is what we were told
by the sheriff’s jail Lt. Kathryn Bryan with Chief Deputy Rose present also. This was in May 2017.

We asked Chief Deputy Rose if he would get us a copy of that law. He said he would. He never did.

He would even tell the county attorney at a later time he had given us a copy of the law or policy.
But that was not true either.

But looking back how could he have given us a copy of a law that didn’t exist?

We had gone to them for help. We even told them that day we were on a mission to try to make sure this didn’t happen to another inmate and their family. We did not know the laws or who was responsible for calling but we wanted to try to see this didn’t happen again and to find out who was responsible for calling.

After that meeting and being told they could not call Cory’s emergency contacts we would contact and visit officials with Vidant hospital.

We knew we had to find out what had gone so terribly wrong. No other family or their loved one should go through this.

From there and moving forward looking for answers and making endless contacts with many other agencies we would find out in time that there was no such law to support what we were told by Bryan and Rose.

We found out what they had been telling us from the very beginning was not the truth.

So we ask ourselves why would or could they so easily be untruthful to us and why?

Again while looking us straight in our faces, and we were so very emotional that day, tell us as much as they wanted to call us they could not. It was the law.

No they were not telling us the truth!

The sheriff made a decision on those two days. He made a conscious decision. He could not have been following any law. There is no law prohibiting him from calling an inmates emergency contacts.

So we continued on.

Then in 2019 as we continued to search for answers the sheriff told us that he did not want to call and he did not have to call!

Because he didn’t want to call and he didn’t have to call? Yes he said that.
But why or wouldn’t he want to call?

You know a young man in your custody has been admitted to ICU with pneumonia and sepsis and you have their emergency contact number and you tell the family you didn’t want to call, you didn’t have to call.

That is not a reasonable nor is it an acceptable answer.

A decision not supported by the law. Not supported by ethics. Not supported by humanity? Not supported by doing the right thing. Not supported by anything.

Why would he not call the emergency contacts given by Cory for just such emergencies?

Inmates are asked for emergency contacts, not just here in Beaufort County but all over the country, there are medical and ethical reasons for this, and the inmates are told these are the ones that we will contact for you in case of serious illness or injuries.

Why do or would they tell inmates this if they can’t call? There is no logic there.

if we are to believe what the sheriff has told us that (he didn’t want to call Cory’s emergency contacts that he didn’t have to call)

Shouldn’t they be telling the inmates in Beaufort County when they ask them for their emergency contacts that this means we will call your emergency contacts if the sheriff decides he wants to.
That he doesn’t have to call but if he decides he wants to call he will but if he doesn’t want to call he will not.

Does that sound right to anyone? Again is that logical?

These are some of reasons we knew something was missing from Cory’s story. There was no logic behind what we were being told.

There are so many things that just doesn’t add up. It makes no sense at all. Why would we be told something not true from the very beginning with their stories continuing to change.

Something is so very wrong here.

We are thankful for those that will listen as sometimes it just has to be put in words, these things we know to be the truth.
We have and are living this.
If we were not I too may find it hard to believe. But I tell you this is the truth.
We have been living this since May 8,2017.

The sheriff said he would do the same thing all over again.

We seek truth, accountability and justice for Cory and for others so this will not happen to another family and their loved one.

As from the beginning we are thankful for your prayers and support.💙
Johnny Anderson Addresses Beaufort County Commissioners Regarding Cory Anderson's Death
(commented on January 31st, 2020 @ 10:59 am)
This is happening too many times across this country. We are thankful to see responsibility and accountability being acknowledged and changes being made.
However here in Beaufort County,N.C. that is not the case. Cory Anderson died while in custody of the Beaufort County Sheriff Ernie Coleman in May of 2017. We have been searching for answers and asking for change and justice for almost three years now. We need the truth as to why Cory’s emergency contacts were not called. The sheriff did not notify Cory’s emergency contacts. As of July 2019 the sheriff in a conversation with a family member said he would do the same thing all over again. This is wrong! He has acknowledged no responsibility. There must be change. The Sheriff saying that there is not a thou shalt call policy or I didn’t want to call should not be acceptable to anyone. This is an absolute wrong. We must have change here in Beaufort County. These are our loved ones, your loved ones or a friend or neighbors loved one. We will keep standing up for what’s right. It gets no easier. We pray for truth, justice and change here in Beaufort County, N.C. We will keep standing for Cory and others and their families.
Johnny Anderson Addresses Beaufort County Commissioners Regarding Cory Anderson's Death
(commented on September 20th, 2019 @ 2:43 pm)
I was struck by the statement the sheriff of Beaufort County made regarding criminal illegals being released back on the streets in N.C. The sheriff said on Fox News on August 26th that his detention center is complying with HB 370 but he went on to say - We’re not admonishing these few sheriffs who don’t, believe it or not it is their right, there is no law saying they can’t they feel I guess in their heart they’re doing the right thing and we’ll move on.
This was about the same as he told me about not notifying Cory’s emergency contacts. It was his choice to make and he choose not to call and let Cory’s family know he was seriously ill and in ICU. Why would he make such an inhumane decision? We will continue forward to find out why he made that decision. It does not stop there.
Now back to the statement the sheriff made about ICE and working with them.
You can view the video.
I do not agree with the statement by the sheriff. It should not be about the rights of a sheriff it should be about the safety, welfare and the protection of the people they all took an oath to serve and protect.
It is because of mindsets like this that we need to have our leaders in Raleigh override the veto of HB370
I have made an inquiry. We all need to contact House Speaker Tim Moore and ask him to put HB 370 on the calendar to try and override the governor’s veto. The Speaker is the only one that can put it on the calendar. As of now it is not on the calendar. I do not understand why not. We must reach out. This is about the welfare, safety and protection of our families.

EMS Pulls the Wool Again
(commented on July 21st, 2019 @ 2:17 pm)
Maybe you need to do some research on topics like this before you write an asinine article. Cardiac monitors ARE used to treat cardiac issues not just look at the patient’s heart and monitor vital signs. They use electricity to correct cardiac dysrhythmias. They monitor more than just a blood pressure and pulse. As a tax paying citizen of Beaufort County, I believe our EMS providers are entitled to have the BEST equipment to save lives. I would think as a county commissioner that is supposed to “represent” the constituents, you’d want that too. I’d hate to see the expense of a lawsuit against Beaufort County due to a death linked to one of the outdated and out of service cardiac monitors that you’re using now. I’d personally hold you responsible. Time for you to retire Hood!

Will the Soul of our Republic Survive?
(commented on July 17th, 2019 @ 10:53 am)
I have come to the conclusion that after the 9-11 tragedy, when we were attacked by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda, though they destroyed buildings and killed thousands of people, they didn’t managed to destroy the United States and Americans will to survive and move forward. Nor did it stop America’s support of Israel, or its involvement in the Persian Gulf War and its continued military presence in the Middle East. So now they have come up with a new plan to destroy the United States from within our government.

Now we have a “Democratic Socialist Squad” of 4 women: 1. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez born in the Bronx, NYC, of spanish decent in a Catholic Family. 2. Rashida Tlaib, born in Detroit, Mi., the first Palestinian-American woman in Congress of Muslim Faith. 3. Ilhan Abdullahi Omar born in Mogadishu, Somalia, of Muslim Faith. 4. Ayanna Soyini Pressley, born in Chicago, Il., African American, religious preference unknown.

Doesn’t anyone see and hear and understand what is going on? These 4 women have completely different core values from what our Constitution stands for. The people who voted these 4 in are searching for a leader to lead them to the “FREE” land, where everything is free, because they think this country owes it to them or they are just to lazy to go out and get it for themselves. This is not what this country was founded on. And what these people don’t understand is nothing is life is for free and eventually someone will be around to collect the payment and the payment will be so large that you will lose everything, even your freedom. That is called “COMMUNISUM”.
