      by boxer on Apr 13, 2011 at 06:34 PM in reply to John this again, and read the winterville article again. It was the idiot Greenville cop that was acting badly. As for NB is was a FORMER cop. He is NOT repeat NOT employed by New Bern Police Department. Guess you're on the WRONG side of the law.
