"It is infuriating to watch a group of white businessmen in suits stand before city council to discuss this sham of an investigation into the so called "secret tapings" of black leaders in our community. GPD as well as Mitch Johnson absolutely have first hand knowledge of the truth. They have continued to twist and misuse the truth because it keeps things at a steady simmer and allows them to appear politcally correct while they, as anonymous said, walk the halls and feign indignation. While I may have to sign in as anonymous, I am not. My name is Cathleen Vance and I was the GPD employee that was commissioned by my captain Rick Ball to help with an investigation reference a High Point task force employee named Delilah Summers. Captain Gary Hastings at the time was well aware of the specifics of this investigation and participated by providing an altered document to be used as bait.
I have copious amounts of information reference this so called investigation but at the time this debauchery was in full swing I was told by Chief Bellamy that I could not speak to anyone about
this matter and that I could not mention Rick Balls name or I would be fired from my job. I had to sit back in fear and loathing and listen to GPD spill lies and half truths to the media as well as city council. I sat through over 3 hours of intense interrogation while internal affairs officers T.Davis and D.Stewart tried without success to get me to say that Scott Sanders put me up to this. I was more than willing to take a polygraph test to prove the truth, however, it did not take long to realize that the "truth" was not what GPD was after. They will continue to use this so called "secret taping" to deceive the public for their own gain. Ben Holder, Rick Ball and Jerry Bledsoe have been instrumental in their attempts to glean the truth and I thank them. I am still waiting for Chief Bellamy to 'clear my good name' as he promised on numerous occassions. I am sure I will be waiting a long time."
