My Governor just disgusted me all over again. OUT with Pat McCrory in NC

He gave a press conference in Charlotte just now, and did not talk about much of anything except praising the police and all the folks who have sleeplessly and tirelessly and ever so selflessly, as he says, come to Charlotte to keep peace and guard the streets and keep down the potential riots.
Not a word about the video that was released about 2 hours ago that was taken by the victim's wife while her husband was murdered. The video brings huge questions, especially about the behavior of the police in regards to a possible purposely dropped gun showing possible evidence of tampering with the happening. This video made me cry, and I have long ago stopped crying in this lifetime.

Our governor so far has not mentioned any of that nor has he asked the Charlotte police to release the two videos they have of the shooting. He is not stepping up to the plate at all, except for talking about NC having had excessive rains and some flooding.

His appearance was useless and did not address anything that happens, except to praise the people in power for jobs well done while the city of Charlotte is in crisis.

I am extremely concerned about the lack of the evidence from the police, this needs to be revealed and the chips need to fall where they may, and I mean pronto. I very much worry about the mood in Charlotte as night will fall, and I have invited one of my closer friends, who is black and lives there, to get in her car and come spend the weekend with me.

He is still answering a few questions as I type, and apparently is not supporting the release of the videos, and that is in advance of a law he signed to go into effect on Oct. 1 about that they don't have to be released in NC any more at all.

The way this is handled by our governor sets him up for a blow out defeat in November.That is the only thing about it that is good.

1. I heard it too

Clear slap in the face. I'm sure he just figures another non-supporter gone, so, not a great concern to him.

I expect the eastern North Carolinians where the flooding is occurring he talke about...and I do feel badly for them...are mostly white and support him? I also expect McCrory is a climate change denier.

I hope you are right about an impending defeat. These regressive types must be voted out definitively, and the sooner the better.

Good luck and regrets.

2. I have been sending money to Roy Cooper hoping

to unseat McCrory. I live in Utah, but do have a home in Harnett County, NC. Most of that county is redneck Republican, but I'm trying to do my small part to put NC back on the correct path forward, instead of backward.
