Concerning The New Media Table
I have just one question about this. What is the city manager and the City Council trying to hide?
Surrounded By Turkeys
The outrageous criminal count of aggravated assaults in Greensboro has reached 500 since Jan. 1, 2022. Now our mayor has determined to close down the Blind Tiger, a reputable night club in Greensboro for over 20 years due to two murders near the premises? One was at 5:30 a.m., long after the closing of this establishment, and I don’t believe it happened on their property?
Our Mayor Nancy Vaughan has no clue on how to get a grip on reducing crime in Greensboro. Her grandstanding efforts targeting the Blind Tiger as the culprit is just another example of complete ignorance.
It’s no surprise Greensboro Police Chief Brian James is retiring! As often said, “It’s hard to soar with eagles when you are surrounded by turkeys.”
Why dont they close down these Fish gambling joints. They have robberies and people are getting shot (some killed) at them on a regular basis. City Councils and County Commissioners turn a blind eye to those places.
Another sterling example of skewed journalism by the local rag to push an agenda. Honest journalism is dead, and actually telling the whole story would not have given the impression that it did.
This is a good cop / bad cop senerio.This is probably one of the major reasons that Mr James is retiring from the police force.How can anyone who is directly in charge of the local police dept and he can’t do his job because the mayor and city council will not allow him to do it without them telling him everything they want him to do.
The best way to handle this situation is Vote out all City Council members ,don’t forget the mayor,she has to go as well.Greensboro why can’t you see these people that you voted in are incompetent.You have tried time and again with the Democrats and always come up short ,try the Republicans one time .When the Republicans controlled the Commissioners board ,for 8 years no tax increase,property that is ,and no other as well .
Just maybe there are too many Democrats in Greensboro that you don’t want to change to Republicans.If so then continue to look for more and more taxes and bonds that Dems want to give away in front of your eyes.
Jim, A) There were two shootings, not murders. No one died. B) The club was open and having an after hours party. C) I imagine the police would have asked the victims things like, “Where did this happen?” and “Where were you coming from?” If they said, “I was at the Blind Tiger” then there you go.
The second part of your letter about Nancy and company is spot on though.
