Brickbat: The Cover-Up Is Worse Than the Crime


Granville County, North Carolina, Sheriff Brindell Wilkins has been indicted on two counts of felony obstruction of justice. Prosecutors say Wilkins discussed with another person killing a former deputy who had an audio recording of Wilkins using "racially insensitive language" that Wilkins feared he might release. The indictment says Wilkins and the other person discussed the time and location where the killing could take place.
