Nate Davis, is a loser. Both of them. That's right father and son have nothing but trouble follow them where ever they go. But like so many of these losers we see in and out of the courthouse they all have a story of being entrapped, or wrongfully accused. They all say they are all innocent. Some of these losers play the race card, some talk about how poverty put them in the vulnerable position that "made" them do the dirty deed. Others will say,"Everyone else does it, why not arrest them?" Most of them are wrong, way wrong. Just a bunch of liars tainting jury pools all over the nation to the reality of what may be happening to a few of the "usual suspects."
Recently the New Hanover County Sheriff's Vice and Narcotics Unit announced the seizure of 1,000 small packets of heroin and the arrest of two females, Nate Davis' sister Shanita Davis (by all accounts a responsible and dedicated worker as well as an accomplished community citizen, seriously) and a white girl from the affluent resort community of Whispering Pines. I mention white girl because 19 year old Porsche Maher is the only thing "unusual" about this case. Well it's not unusual that a rich white girl falls for some tough street hood, totally pissing off her country club parents, no that's not unusual. Neither is a girl with a privileged background with a drug problem. Case in point, the story of a Cape Fear Academy graduate, UNCW honors graduate and teacher who discovered heroin and was found dead at a hotel known for prostitution and drug addicts. Her parents tried everything to help their baby girl and so too has the family of Porsche. No, unfortunately this is not "unusual" in america today. What is unusual in this case is that the teenage Miss Moore County is a witness to a very disturbing trend among lazy law enforcement officers. Bounty hunting. Drug and vice units so hell bent on stealing away "the criminal's" property that they fail to abide by the policies and procedures in a business where one slip up can cost a conviction at the least and at the worst cause an innocent death.
A couple of years ago a member of the New Hanover County Narc Unit sat shotgun in a TransAm as it sped away from other deputies after a drug buy. The TransAm hit speeds over 100 miles per hour thru the middle of town ultimate crashing into a church off of Shipyard Blvd. catching the church on fire and almost killing the undercover agent and driver. There was never any public mention of the passenger.
Just the other day another pursuit took place when deputies with the New Hanover County Narc Unit attempted to stop Nate Davis Jr. after a drug buy. Again the driver sped off and again an undercover agent was onboard as a passenger. The car was abandoned, and the driver, Nate ran off. No mention of the passenger.
Captain Bobby Blackmon, who up until yesterday, headed up the Vice and Narcotics Unit within the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office. There will be no public release explaining his demotion and transfer due to laws protecting personnel matters (unless the release of such disciplinary action will regain the public's trust in the sheriff's office) so we will more than likely not hear an official reason as to the sudden change in leadership because the public won't know anything about it, catch 22. But it looks like someone screwed-up. Screwed up bad too. Bad enough for the sheriff to play musical chairs.
So Nate is on the run. Hiding out where he can. Heart beating like a fox being chased by the hounds. He has no idea that he might not be as wanted as he thinks. If caught there will be a trial. That is if he isn't stuck with a million dollar bond and a two year wait for a court date. If he is, the 23 year old career Felon might just take a plea (as 85% will) and no one will be any wiser to what took place that day because there will be no trial. But if things were done dirty to grab him on Oleander Drive and rules were broken, laws bent and lil miss Moore County is brought into the mix with a Don Stricklandesque band of defense attorneys popping open briefcases stuffed with depositions of a long history of violations, this could get ugly really quick for the Sheriff and all those around him winking away his sins.
There is much more to this and we are just begining this investigation into the world of the "usual suspects."
