LINCOLNTON, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) – The Lincolnton Police Department has had a steady stream of one-star ratings coming in to their Facebook page from a number of people expressing their anger towards the department’s “war on drugs”.
The Lincolnton Police Department went from a five-star rated department to a 2.1 rated star department over the course of a few days.
The department addressed the low ratings on Wednesday stating, “If you read the one star reviews you will notice we are being attacked because we enforce the drug laws of North Carolina. So basically the pro-drug crowd is rating us one star for doing our jobs. We see this as a good thing.”
Some took to social media to address the Lincoln Police Department’s new post.
Mitchel Schroeder wrote in part, “Unfortunately, your department’s generalization is distasteful and is defamatory to the liberty movement. This is why you’re getting a one star. To say we are pro-drug and pro-criminal is equivalent to saying that pro-gun supporters are pro-murder and pro-criminal due to the criminal use of guns and irresponsible gun owners.”
