WBOC did a great job this morning announcing THREE acts of violence over the past two weekends. I, (and hopefully you) found it interesting however how the news of the other two attacks had been kept quiet two weekends ago and that information hadn't been released until today.
I had a conversation this morning with a friend who said, you've been exposing this stuff for more then 10 years now. They went on to say, if it wasn't for Salisbury News all of this would have been swept under the rug. They then said, the same goes with the Zoo. Do you think they would have said anything on the news about animals dying if they weren't afraid you'd be publishing it.
Well, here's the interesting thing about the Zoo. If ANY of you believe that only one animal died at the Zoo you'd be crazy. There's no way the staff could be able to collect all of the prairie dogs as they burrow under ground and always drown during such floods. Nevertheless, I have been preaching for more then 10 years that the Zoo is around 95% in a flood plane zone and needs to be relocated. I stated this numerous times before they started spending some $5,000,000.00 on new buildings and infrastructure. Your local media stated the Zoo would reopen last weekend. I'm sure someone at the Zoo told them so. Now they're saying it will open tomorrow. I can assure you, the Zoo is an absolute mess and no one in their right mind will be going to the Zoo any time soon as the exhibits, (most of them) will be empty for a while.
As for the VIOLENCE, let's get real here. You keep allowing affordable housing Downtown and guess what's going to happen! As it progresses, as the local media finally starts exposing the reality of violence, everyone is going to say sooner then later, where did all this crime come from.
As my friend stated earlier, we've been exposing it for more then 10 years now. Believe me when I tell you, the majority of resident who have internet access do in fact come to Salisbury News, so it's not as if people haven't been aware.
For years we had been considered the Anti Christ for actually exposing the truth, backed by pictures and documents. I have to say, I am very pleased the local media is coming out of their political shell and finally exposing the truth.
Let me warn you right here and now. IF this violence continues, Salisbury University will start losing thousands of new Students as parents will refuse to put their children at such risk. So you people better wake up fast because your Liberal leadership with Barrie Tilghman, Jim Ireton and now Jake Day and their strong belief in delivering more affordable housing will absolutely destroy what's left of Salisbury. All because they want to see new construction and development because NO ONE else is stupid enough to throw good money after bad money in Salisbury.
Much like the uphill battle Donald Trump will have to Make America Great Again, Salisbury is in just as bad shape and it's going to take someone very special to bring back Salisbury as a vibrant community again. Affordable Housing is Lipstick On A PIG.
