Red Mike rumors

I’m getting credible reports that the Sunday morning tragedy at Red Mike Grocery in Fisher Park did not include robbery of the business.  No one has mentioned that Mike’s death was the result of anything other than murder, however.

Another source, namely the police-connected Troublemaker, says the police have suspect(s) in their sights and that an arrest is imminent.  Many people are hoping that Ben is right about that.

Being in the old window restoration business, I have received several calls lately from Fisher Parker’s wanting to add security devices to their windows in the form of better locks and substantial storm windows.

I’m glad for the business but pissed about the reason.

    Things are getting weird all over the place. There was that murder, there was a shooting on Lee’s Chapel last night, which really isn’t all that far from my house, there was that other murder over the weekend on Hidden Forest Drive, which also isn’t all that far from my house, many robberies and assaults have been happening…my camper was broken into sometime over the last 2 weeks and I just found out last night. They damaged the windows and door, took the battery, TV/DVD player and radio and the bedspread…what is going on? Every time I turn around something bad seems to be happening.

    Bert, yeah — that note on the listserv “part of the Aycock neighborhood is roped off!” — was absurd. Somebody apparently saw some yellow tape on the saplings that were planted yesterday by the NeighborWoods volunteers.

    My impression of GSO’s police dept. professionalism has declined seriously in the last year. I called them because a drunk was shouting and trying to get into my back yard a while back. He was gone by the time they arrived, but they declined even to look for him, then stood around in the street in front of my house for half an hour joking around. Not impressed.

    They do indeed, Bert.

    The police could and should have done a much better job in disseminating information. We, the neighborhoods, have no problem with this basic task, but the GDP seems inept in the info spreading department.

    Their job description is ostensibly to both protect and serve. I’ve been unimpressed on both counts today.

    Go Tim and Mitch!
