Court Date Rescheduled For Chief's Son

The court date has been rescheduled for the son of New Bern's police chief, who was due in court on drug charges Tuesday.

Christopher Palombo, 22 years-old, will now head to court on November 19th.

The Craven County sheriff's office charged Palombo with 24 drug charges after arresting him at Copperfield apartments earlier this month.

Palombo and another suspect were charged with intent to deliver marijuana, sell and deliver cocaine and carrying a concealed weapon.

    I agree with C 100%. You are right. News of all kinds has to spice up everything they do, instead of saying what they really need to. Then when you ask them why they have to exaggerate ther stories, they try to make up excuses and defend themselves with lame comments!!

    I agree with WITN! It is news that the top cop in any city has a son who is busted for selling drugs in the same city where the dad works to put drug dealers away.

    Isn't the purpose of a news station to report unbiased and unopinionated facts in a neutral manner? If so, shouldn't the headline regarding Christopher Palombo read "Christopher Palombo's Court Date Rescheduled" or "Man Charged With Drug Offenses Has Court Date Rescheduled?" Why try to sensationalize your story by referencing the police chief? According to previous reports, the chief wasn't involved in the crime or the arrest, it didn't take place in his house or his jurisdiction and his son is an adult. It seems like your trying to make the chief look bad to me. I notice your story regarding the ex-prisoner who now has to pay child support, doesn't read, "Ms. Dails Wrongly Convicted Son Freed After Serving Years Must Pay Child Support." Just report the news, don't try to spice it up with eye-catching headlines.

    Editor's Note: It absolutely is "the purpose of a news station to report unbiased and unopinionated facts in a neutral manner." While this is a story unto itself, it rises to another level because of the connection to a chief of police. Any similar case in any city or county in Eastern Carolina or beyond would have been handled the same way.
