HEY CHIEF LOCKLEAR - BEATING YOUR WIFE IS A CRIME!

[NC] Chief Locklear plays the race card when fired for dv attack

...Locklear said he plans to take legal action against the town. “This is not going to be the end,” he said... he believes his firing was racially motivated...

[NC] Chief's wife Erlina Locklear said her head hit the cement twice
...Erlina Locklear was taken to a FirstHealth clinic in Raeford after she was allegedly assaulted at her home at 10 p.m. Monday. Clinic staff called authorities, and she was transferred to FirstHealth Moore Regional Medical Center...

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS A CRIME, NOT A PERSONAL PROBLEM. ERLINA EASILY COULD HAVE DIED AS HER HEAD IMPACTED THE CEMENT - THE FIRST TIME OR THE SECOND. NO, IT ISN'T ENOUGH THAT THE CHIEF WAS FIRED. THE COURT LET HIM SKIP OFF FREE OF ANY LEGAL ACCOUNTABILITY - AGAIN - LIKE HIS CHARGES FOR BEATING A MAN WITH A LEAD-WEIGHTED BATON. HIS TOWN DID NOT. SO LOCKLEAR PLAYS THE RACE CARD AND THREATENS TO SUE? HE ENVISIONS A WORLD WHERE INDIAN CHIEFS SHOULD HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS TO TERRIFY OR BEAT THEIR WIVES?
YOUR TIMING FOR A RACIAL DISCRIMINATION CLAIM STINKS LOCKLEAR.
HEY LOCKLEAR, YOU CANNOT RIGHTFULLY BE A CRIMINAL AND THE CHIEF OF POLICE AT THE SAME TIME.
IT IS REALLY THAT SIMPLE.
RAEFORD DID THE RIGHT THING FIRING YOU, AND I ENCOURAGE THE TOWN TO NOT GET PUNKED DOWN WITH THAT RACE THREAT. THAT'S AN EMBARASSMENT TO PEOPLE OF COLOR. HE SHOULD BE IN JAIL, NOT PLANNING HOW TO MAKE SOME MONEY OFF OF THIS. HE SHOULD BE APOLOGIZING TO THE TOWN OF RAEFORD, NOT THREATENING THEM.

PLEASE ALL - SEEK THE SAFETY OF ERLINA. SHE DID NOT DO THIS. LOCKLEAR CALLS ALL THE SHOTS, AND HE IS OBVIOUSLY NOT GOING TO MAN-UP ANYTIME SOON. AND WHETHER OR NOT SHE AGREED TO THE "DEAL" - I GUARANTEE YOU SHE DIDN'T FEEL LIKE SHE HAD ANY CHOICE AT ALL. SHE IS TREATED AS AN INCIDENTAL - BUT HER LIFE IS FRAGILE. ENCIRCLE HER.

Police Chief Kevin Locklear was fired Thursday... Locklear said he plans to take legal action against the town. “This is not going to be the end,” he said... Locklear said Thursday that he believes his firing was racially motivated. Locklear is a Lumbee Indian and is the first American Indian to serve as Raeford’s police chief. “They have been giving me problems since the day I became police chief” Locklear said. “I was made to do things other Caucasian police chiefs weren’t made to do.” Locklear declined to give examples... The couple had been separated for 13 months, according to Earlina Locklear’s brother.
