To the editor:
Recently, I e-mailed Rep. Mike McIntyre requesting his help to push for the implementation and enforcement of a violent criminals’ registry in North Carolina. I would also like tougher laws for repeat offenders.
McIntyre’s response was to inform me we already have a sex offenders’ registry and “since you are interested in criminal registries, we are trying to pass a bill through legislation to set up a drug offenders’ registry.”
With a drug offenders’ registry, all drug dealers and addicts can find out where convicted drug offenders live and work. Thanks, Mike!
The best way to combat the war against drugs is to eliminate demand and supply. I applaud all law enforcement agents who have been working hard to clean up the drug problem.
I responded to McIntyre by saying my husband’s [Realtor Adam Bradshaw] murder had nothing to do with drugs. My request was for a violent criminals’ registry. If my husband had known one of his clients had a history of violent criminal behavior, he would not have done business with him and he would be alive today.
With a violent criminals’ registry, citizens could go online and find out where violent criminals are living and working around them. We can use this as a tool to protect our family, neighbors and friends from becoming the next potential victim.
Please join me in fighting for a violent criminals’ registry. Write to local representatives, senators, the governor, every politician and all legislators in North Carolina. Demand a violent criminals’ registry be implemented and enforced.
This could save and protect lives.
We also need to demand tougher laws for repeat offenders. These criminals are given a slap on the wrist, are told not to do it again and are released to continue with criminal careers. Their crimes grow worse. Innocent people have to lose their lives for these criminals to finally be stopped.
Also, why have the tax appraisal values on property been raised so much during the last several months? When Adam purchased 3.06 acres of land from murder suspect Creig Bryant, the tax appraisal was only $27,000. My husband paid $25,000 to purchase the land. That is only $2,000 less than the tax appraisal.
Recently, it was reported in The Beacon Bryant sold land to Adam for less than it was worth. Since Adam purchased that land, the county has raised the tax value to more than $148,000.
I would also like to know why certain individuals believe a piece of land is more valuable than human life? My son and I will never see true justice for Adam’s murder unless those responsible can bring him home alive and well.
Adam’s life was priceless. His life was worth a lot more than 3.06 acres of land.
I believe that land is the devil’s land, tainted by evil.
