"Viewers took issue with a local blogger's portrayal of the Greensboro police chief. We asked people at Center City Park to watch the video..."
The viewers (if people hanging out in a park can be called "viewers") didn't "take issue" with the video until Mickens went to the park and found them and showed them the video, which they apparently hadn't seen before.
The video had less than 300 views on YouTube when it was taken down -- weeks ago. Why is WFMY doing a story now? Why would Mickens go around showing the video to people in a park? (I wonder if everybody he showed it to was offended. Or just the three people he put on TV.) Why didn't Mickens go interview the people who were complaining about the video in the first place -- Tom Phillips? Why didn't Mickens interview Tim Bellamy? Nobody wanted to talk to Mickens, so he had to go find people to offend in the park. Why is he doing a news story about this in the first place? Mickens wanted MORE people to see the video.
Mickens also said that the video "popped up" on The Troublemaker and then later, on YouTube. It had to be on YouTube first to be put on The Troublemaker. Somebody needs to explain YouTube to Mickens. This guy is a clown in my opinion.
Mickens is scared to even say BEN HOLDER? Mickens and Kent Bates say "the blogger" and Mickens says "the filmmaker," but nobody says "BEN HOLDER." It is a very powerful name.
At the end of the story, WFMY reports that Greensboro Police Chief Tim Bellamy hopes I get help. Well, I am not sure what kind of help Bellamy wanted me to get. However, I did get a big stack of papers full of very interesting things. I am a magnet. Was this the help he wanted me to get?
Enjoy reading about Attorney Walt Jones' not so flattering examinations of Greensboro Attorney, Linda Miles. Jones, who at one time represented Julius Fulmore, is now a Guilford County assistant district attorney working out of the High Point office. Jones writes about Miles desire to gather dirt on Judge Albright as well as others. Page two shows Jones examination of what Mitch Johnson should have told council. Covert meetings with the city legal staff and other attorney's? Staggering times and traveling in different directions? This is what Greensboro pays Linda Miles for? Jones is no friend of Wray. The point is Wray's worst enemies do not like Linda Miles either.
Enjoy reading about Officer Julius Fulmore doing not so well on a lie detector test. There is a whole lot more coming. Somebody in the Greensboro Police Department with a lot of access is helping me. How nice!
Background from the Rhino:
When the 11 a.m. check-out time had passed, the motel manager opened room 311 and allowed the detectives inside. In the room they discovered a test tube that contained cocaine residue, along with a stirrer. They also found a used condom.
In the meantime, the detectives had learned that the adjoining room had been rented a week earlier by a woman known to be a crack cocaine addict and prostitute. Months earlier, Fulmore had picked her up as she was leaving a crack house and brought her in for questioning, although he no longer was a narcotics officer. He had seized crack cocaine from her and told her that she would not be charged if she would become an informant for him and call him every day. However, he never registered her as an informant as required by department rules. Neither did he prepare required records of his contacts with her.
The woman was described as white and attractive. She had long dark hair. She still occupied the room, and a motel employee told the detectives that she had been seen going back and forth between the two rooms the previous day and night.
When detectives were able to interview the woman she acknowledged knowing Fulmore and told the officers that Fulmore had rented the adjoining room the day before. He had brought cocaine, which she had used while he had a beer. They'd had sex, but not for money, and had fallen asleep. When she awoke, she said, Fulmore was one.
