With that said I will be reopening this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Ice cold beer, great mixed drinks and a limited menu. I have to admit, Dawn and I are very excited to see everyone again.

More Thugs Rampage and Destroy Property In Ocean City Maryland

General John Henry Winder Sign Removed

As County Executive of Wicomico County, I removed the General John Henry Winder sign that has stood on the property of the Wicomico County Courthouse for many years. By doing so, I am hopeful the citizens of Wicomico County understand and reflect my belief that monuments such as this are offensive to many in the county. I hope this action is one of many steps that will help heal our community.


On June 3rd, 2020, The Office for the State’s Attorney for Wicomico County filed a criminal information against Jerome Kevin Jackson, age 54 of Princess Anne, Maryland, alleging that he maliciously defaced the property of Salisbury University while exhibiting racial animosity in violation of Maryland Criminal Law §10-305(2) in the District Court for Wicomico County. This type of crime is commonly referred to as a Hate Crime.

The charging decision was made after a thorough and complete investigation conducted by the Salisbury University Police Department in cooperation with The Office of the State’s Attorney.

Mr. Jackson has elected to plead guilty and is scheduled to do so on June 12th, 2020 in the District Court for Wicomico County. 

The plea agreement was drafted in consultation with The Salisbury University Police Department and University officials. The written plea agreement was then signed and executed by the Defendant and filed on June 3, 2020 in The District Court. The plea in its entirety is attached to this press release. 

According to the terms of that plea agreement, Mr. Jackson will pay restitution to Salisbury University for the damage incurred to their property and take responsibility for the racist and sometimes gender discriminatory graffiti that was discovered on campus on October 8, 2019, October 10, 2019, October 22, 2019, November 4, 2019, and February 19, 2020. 

Upon a finding of guilt, the State will recommend that the Defendant be sentenced to eighteen (18) months of active incarceration.

This type of crime is commonly referred to as a Hate Crime. 

Following the finding of guilt, Judge Marsh imposed a sentence of eighteen (18) months of active incarceration at the Wicomico County Detention Center. 

Pursuant to the terms of the plea agreement, the Defendant paid restitution to Salisbury University in the amount of $494.00 to pay for the costs associated with removing the graffiti from University property. 

Additionally, the terms of the plea required that the Defendant admit responsibility for each of the racist and sometimes gender related discriminatory graffiti found on the campus on October 8th, 2019, October 10, 2019, October 22, 2019, November 4, 2019 and February 19, 2020. 

State’s Attorney (SA) for Wicomico County, Jamie Dykes thanked Judge Marsh for insightful and thoughtful remarks during the hearing. SA Dykes went on to say, “It is my hope that this verdict and sentence brings accountability, finality and justice to the staff, faculty, students, prospective students and parents of the Salisbury University community.” 

SA Dykes commended the Salisbury University Police Department and Dr. Charles Wight and his executive staff for their hard work and dedication during this investigation. SA Dykes further thanked Deputy State’s Attorney Billy McDermott and Assistant State’s Attorney Ajene Turnbull both of whom prosecuted this case.

A message from Salisbury University President Charles A. Wight

Today, the Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office announced that Jerome Kevin Jackson, 54, of Princess Anne, MD, has signed an intention to enter a guilty plea of maliciously defacing property while demonstrating racial animosity in connection with the racist, misogynistic and threatening vandalism discovered on campus during the 2019-20 academic year, under Maryland’s hate crime statute. The plea includes a recommendation for 18 months of jail time plus restitution for the remediation of property damage. Please visit for more information.

Jackson has no known connections to campus. He has accepted responsibility for each of the vandalism incidents in Fulton and Henson Science halls in October and November 2019, and February 2020. This brings the Salisbury University Police Department’s (SUPD) investigation into those incidents to a close.

I commend the SUPD for its diligence in the investigation, which included combing through an enormous amount of evidence and information. I also thank our students, faculty, staff, alumni and other constituents for their patience and understanding during the investigation. As promised, the University did not take these incidents lightly.

I am grateful to the allied law enforcement agencies that offered assistance with the case. I also thank Wicomico County State’s Attorney Jamie Dykes and her staff, who were instrumental in bringing the case to resolution.

Hate and discrimination have no place on this campus, and neither do ignorance or apathy as they relate to these issues. These incidents were targeted, but they affect us all. SU’s campus culture is all of our responsibility, and throughout this difficult time, our students, faculty, staff, alumni and community supporters have made one thing very clear: SU unites and stands together.

I look forward to continuing to work with our shared governance groups and others as we pave the way for a better SU.

UPDATED: Delaware Law Enforcement Memorial Vandalized

Kyle Bullock
Camden, DE
The Dover Police Department has charged Kyle Bullock (42) for damaging the Delaware Law Enforcement Memorial. When Dover Police officers arrived on scene, one of the items they located was a cell phone. Officers were able to locate the number and determine the phone belonged to Bullock. While on scene, Bullock came back and asked the officers if they had seen a cell phone, claiming that he lost it in the area while participating in prior protest activity.

NASCAR Bans Confederate Flag After Black Driver Demands Action

For the first time since its inception 72 years ago, NASCAR is banning the Confederate flag from its events - a symbol which now "runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry."

The move comes one day after the the first full-time Black NASCAR driver in 25 years, Darrel "Bubba" Wallace, called on the organization to ban the flag which serves as a reminder of the days when southern Democrats owned slaves.

According to NPR, the 26-year-old Wallace wasn't offended by the Confederate flag until he 'made an effort to educate himself on what the flag signifies for many people, according to NPR.

Democrat Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear Announces Plans to Provide 100% Health Coverage For Black Residents (VIDEO)

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear (D) on Monday announced his plans to provide 100% health coverage for black residents.

Mr. Beshear said it’s part of the state’s plan to tackle systemic racism in the healthcare system.

“In our health care system, the inequalities have been laid bare and exposed by this COVID-19 pandemic and the results of inequality in health care have been shown in depth,” Beshear said. “By allowing this type of inequality to exist for as long as it has, we see African Americans dying at twice the rate that they make up of the population, it shouldn’t have taken this pandemic or these demonstrations for us to commit to ending it.”

“My commitment today is we are gonna begin an effort to cover 100 percent of our individuals in our black and African-American communities, everybody” the Democrat governor said. “We’re gonna be putting dollars behind it.”


What Would Happen if Cities Started to 'Defund the Police?'

As the destructive and deadly riots over the horrific police killing of George Floyd draw to a close, Black Lives Matter groups have demanded that cities “defund the police” and many cities have taken up the call, including the Minneapolis City Council and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. But what would actually happen if cities defunded the police? Do activists expect the police to simply “go away?” Do they think defunding law enforcement will make the cops and their alleged racism simply vanish?

Reason‘s Scott Shackford, who supports decreasing police department funding, urges caution in the way cities should go about it.

As it turns out, an effort to defund the police can backfire and harm the very people Black Lives Matter wants to help.
Where will the police get the money?

If cities defund the police, that won’t necessarily abolish the departments. In fact, the remaining police departments may suddenly have an added incentive to crack down on ordinary citizens.

As Shackford notes, “If you don’t account for revenue from fines, fees, and forfeiture, this can all backfire against the poor.”

Police departments across the country are partially funded by fees and fines that suspects pay when they are arrested for a crime. Some police departments are even able to keep some or all of the money or property they seize from suspects during an arrest. Under civil asset forfeiture, police seize people’s money, homes, and vehicles through court proceedings by simply accusing the owners of having earned the money or purchased the property through illegal means.

Police can do this even without a court conviction.

During the 2009 recession, revenue collection in cities across America dropped, and police responded by increasing the use of civil asset forfeiture to maintain their budgets. As Shackford noted, “The targets of asset forfeiture are frequently low-income minorities and immigrants who lack the resources to fight back.”


NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace to Race with #BlackLivesMatter Paint Scheme

Mayor Frey Asks Trump for Help After Minneapolis Rioters Cause Millions in Damage

Mayor Jacob Frey (D) is seeking federal aid to help Minneapolis recover from the protests and riots that have wrecked the area.

“With at least $55 million in estimated damage and far more to come, Minneapolis will need state and federal aid as it attempts to rebuild hundreds of structures after the riots following George Floyd’s death,” Frey explained on Thursday, according to the Star Tribune.

The report continued:

City officials are still putting together a complete tally of the destruction and cautioned that estimates are likely to rise significantly. Gov. Tim Walz and members of Minnesota’s congressional delegation are trying to get government assistance to offset that cost. But in the past, neither the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) nor Congress has consistently sent federal funding to cities ravaged by riots.

In an interview, Frey said he expected the total cost of the damage to be in the “tens, if not hundreds of millions” of dollars across the Twin Cities.


Minneapolis City Council Unanimously Votes to Replace Police with ‘Community-Led Public Safety System’

The Minneapolis City Council on Friday unanimously voted a resolution to replace the police with a ‘community-led public safety system.’

Get out while you can!

The radical left is pushing to “defund the police” following the death of George Floyd.

By “defund the police,” the left means replacing the police with Sharia patrol, Black Panthers, La Raza and other anti-Christian, anti-white social justice enforcers.
