"Pride" at elementary/middle schools, Wake County offers monkeypox vaccine; 4th illegal alien sibling charged in Wake Deputy's murder
No. 22 — May 28-Jun. 3, 2023
Wake County offers free monkeypox vaccination and testing (Wake County)
Although the public health announcement by Wake County starts with “encouraging those at risk for mpox to get vaccinated”, the announcement fails to mentionwhat those risk factors are, or even mention that monkeypox/mpox (renamed for political correctness) is primarily sexually transmitted disease. According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control’s factsheet on monkeypox: “In 2022, a large outbreak of mpox was identified for the first time in many previously non-endemic countries worldwide…the majority of cases was among men who had sex with men (MSM).” (Emphasis added)
Presumably, it would be in the best interest of Wake County’s male homosexual community to accurately inform them of the risk factors associated with their behavioral choices. This announcement, although it comes just before the start of “Pride Month”, does no such thing.

Dog killed when NC sheriff’s deputies crash into car during drug investigation (Herald-Sun)
Although I prefer not to use the exonerative tense in cases of police misbehavior, in this story it is unclear whether the Durham County deputy was indeed responsible for the crash this week that killed a small dog. This pattern of media coverage, where the culprit in a “officer involved” incident left undetermined, is at least partially due to a reliance on information released by the law enforcement department in question. In this case, the press release from the Durham County Sheriff’s Office merely states that “the Sheriff’s Office vehicle and another driver collided,” without further information on which driver was at fault.
Fourth illegal alien sibling charged in relation to 2022 murder of Wake County Deputy Ned Byrd (ABC11)
Rolando Marin-Sotelo is the latest Marin-Sotelo sibling to be charged in relation to the murder of Wake County Deputy Ned Byrd on August 12, 2022. Rolando has been charged with accessory after the fact for selling the vehicle his older brothers Arturo and Alder Alfonso were driving the night they allegedly murdered Deputy Byrd. Rolando has been in custody since August 16, 2022 after being caught driving with fictitious plates, illegal window tint, a revoked driver’s license, and illegally possessed ammunition. Rolando’s sister, Adriana, has also been charged federally after allegedly assisting Alder Alfonso to escape a Virginia jail last month. Alder Alfonso was recaptured in Guerrero, Mexico.
All four Marin-Sotelo siblings are Mexican nationals who have been reported to be in the country illegally.
