Troy Williams: City Asset or Just Simply a Whoremonger?

Fayetteville, N.C. –  posted Aug 16, 2012, 9:28 PM   [ updated Aug 17, 2012, 4:52 PM ]

My, my my, how the self-touted righteous and mighty appear to have fallen.

Every man is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. This, however, does not take away from the fact that there is probable cause to believe that Troy Williams has shown himself to be a cad, a false prophet, an adulterer, an abomination in the eyes of the lord should these allegations prove to be true. It has been alleged that Troy Williams violated the law by soliciting for prostitution in Bonnie Doone.

A Fayetteville Police Officer had probable cause to believe that a crime had been or was about to be committed and alleges that Troy Williams was witnessed taking advantage of a poor wayward misguided soul by enticing her into unlawful sinful sexual actions to satisfy his perverse sexual proclivities for money or another recompense.

One must ask at this point; Should the allegations prove to be true is the money spent on this prostitute from a church and its parishioners to which he claims to be a pastor.  If I were associated with an organization of which he is a pastor I would be demanding an accounting of the money just to be sure. One might also ask where the funds come from to afford an attorney of the caliber of Coy Brewer. Yes, I would watch those tithings very closely.

Another consideration would be the danger in which he has placed his wife. Should the allegations prove to be true then that would mean that he has exposed her to any number of deadly diseases such as syphilis, gonorrhea, and AIDS. What a truly unconscionable and despicable animal that would make him….should the allegations prove to be true.

How about the fact that should these allegations prove to be true that it would mean that Troy Williams has caused this city far more grief than just his simply soliciting a prostitute.

Court records show Sarty has been charged before with soliciting for prostitution and crimes against nature, and three times she has pleaded guilty to possessing drug paraphernalia. In 2005, she pleaded guilty to soliciting for a crime against nature and was given a 120-day jail sentence. In 2006, she pleaded guilty to selling marijuana and was sentenced to almost a year behind bars.

In these days where commercials warn not to pay for counterfeit goods because the money goes to gang-related drug dealers, it is a solid argument that not only has Troy Williams contributed to the rampant spread of prostitution in the City of Fayetteville, he has also enabled the furtherance of the gang and drug crimes in this city too. It is quite possible that he has also contributed to acts of gang or drug-related violence by his actions….that is, should the allegations prove to be true.

It is a given in policing that for every criminal arrested for a crime there are nine more crimes that they committed that law enforcement didn’t catch them at. The point is, should the allegations prove to be true, it is absolutely plausible that Troy Williams has cruised the streets of Fayetteville in an animalistic sexually depraved manner several times and engaged in sordid acts of immoral turpitude and depravity of the likes only contemplated by the denizens of hell of which men like us, men of morality and good character, could not even begin to conceive….. should the allegations prove to be true, of course.

Then we come to the subject of Troy Williams’ veracity.

In a statement to the media, Williams said the charge is baseless and he expects to be exonerated. He said he merely offered a stranger a ride home.

“I will admit to an appearance of ‘bad judgment,’ ” his statement said. “However, my intentions were honorable.”

It is interesting that Troy Williams chose to say “…my intentions were honorable”. Given that he should know that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions one wonders if he does not sub-consciously make an admission of guilt with these words in an attempt to salve his own conscience.

Should these allegations prove to be true then Troy Williams’ word regarding anything will be forever sullied. It will not, from that point on, be trusted ever again for he will have been proven a liar in addition to being a raging sex maniac with self-control issues….should the allegations prove to be true that is.

The evidence thus far is certainly against him in this matter. Let us review what we know thus far;

He told The Fayetteville Observer he was driving home from work after a long night preparing for an out-of-town trip this week when he stopped to give Sarty a ride. His office is on Hay Street, and he lives in Eureka Springs, which is off McArthur Road near Fort Bragg.

Williams said he has been going home from work via Bragg Boulevard and cutting through Bonnie Doone to Honeycutt Road to avoid construction on McArthur Road.

Well now, we have a few problems already.

Problem #1: Just what traffic issues or construction would one expect to encounter on McArthur Road at 1:30 AM?

Problem #2: Isn’t there SIGNIFICANTLY more construction on Bragg Blvd between Johnson St. and Honeycutt Road than there is on McArthur Road?

Problem #3: Would not Murchison Road to Honeycutt Road be a more logical route home than Bragg Blvd to Honeycutt Road for Troy Williams? Murchison Road has more construction than McArthur Road too.

Problem #4: You can’t access Honeycutt Rd off Bragg Blvd. Ft. Bragg has it set up where you can’t make a right-hand turn, so he would have to have turned onto Shaw Road to go to Murchison Road. Murchison Road has more construction than McArthur Road too. So If this was truly what he was doing he would know that. Would it not be appropriate to consider this obvious lie to the newspaper in court as an example of Troy Williams’ sullied credibility?

Problem #5: Ramsey Street to Andrews Road is also a better route home for a “Faithful Husband” than Bragg Blvd.

Will Troy Williams give the “I have sinned” speech like Jimmy Swaggart?

I find it interesting that Troy Williams has retained Coy Brewer instead of Allen Rogers. Apparently, he doesn’t view Allen Rogers as being up to the task of defending him.

What an example Troy Williams makes to all of us as a representative of that obscure little hate radio station. This is just more proof that Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” is appropriate to this organization and its members.

Do we now have an indication as to why Troy Williams does not want consent searches or even for the police to question persons of color? Is it because the reasons are personal to his apparent and alleged perverted activities in the dark of the night? Is his life is a lie of incredible dimensions?

Be a man Troy Williams. Do the right thing and tell the truth.


Troy Williams, critic of Fayetteville police traffic stops, cited with soliciting prostitute

By Andrew Barksdale and Nancy McCleary

Staff writers

A community activist who has railed against the Fayetteville Police Department about traffic stops and consensual searches has been cited with soliciting a prostitute.

Troy A. Williams, 56, was cited with the misdemeanor after a Fayetteville police officer stopped him about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday off Bragg Boulevard, north of Johnson Street.

In a statement to the media, Williams said the charge is baseless and he expects to be exonerated. He said he merely offered a stranger a ride home.

“I will admit to an appearance of ‘bad judgment,’ ” his statement said. “However, my intentions were honorable.”

According to a police report and courthouse records, Williams is accused of soliciting Toni Stoesser Sarty, 44. She lives in the Bonnie Doone community, where Williams was stopped in his gray Ford Taurus and cited.

Sarty was cited for solicitation for prostitution and possessing drug paraphernalia.

Williams’ lawyer, Coy Brewer, said Williams has long helped others “in difficult circumstances, and that is what he was doing then.” His court date is Oct. 17.

“The police charged an individual who is innocent of the charges and in court, we will establish that innocence,” Brewer said.

Court records show Sarty has been charged before with soliciting for prostitution and crimes against nature, and three times she has pleaded guilty to possessing drug paraphernalia.

In 2005, she pleaded guilty to soliciting for a crime against nature and was given a 120-day jail sentence. In 2006, she pleaded guilty to selling marijuana and was sentenced to almost a year behind bars.

Brewer declined to go into specifics of the case or discuss the actions of the officer who made the stop, K.M. Rubio Jr.

“There are a number of potential legal issues, and those will be developed in due course,” Brewer said.

In response to a request by The Fayetteville Observer, police spokesman Gavin MacRoberts released a redacted four-page arrest report that was missing a narrative of the officer’s investigation.

MacRoberts said police will not release more information.

“As any other citizen, (Williams) rightfully deserves a fair trial, and it would not be appropriate to comment further,” MacRoberts said.

The Observer asked for a recording of the dashboard camera footage of the stop, but MacRoberts declined, saying such footage “is considered a part of the investigative file and therefore not a public record.”

Many law enforcement agencies do not consider such recordings a public record, though the Fayetteville Police Department has released videos before. In January, the department released audio and video of police stopping Cumberland County Commissioner Charles Evans after he had complained of harassment. And in May, the City Council voted to release footage after an officer was accused of using a racial slur during a traffic stop. The footage revealed the claim to be untrue.

Williams, a co-host on WIDU-1600 AM radio, is a former Cumberland County sheriff’s deputy who now runs an independent consulting business. He is a member of the Observer’s Community Advisory Board and writes a monthly column for the paper’s op-ed page.

He said he was driving home from work after a long night preparing for an out-of-town trip this week when Sarty asked him for a ride off Bragg Boulevard. His office is on Hay Street, and he lives in Eureka Springs, which is off McArthur Road near Fort Bragg.

Williams said he has been going home from work on Bragg Boulevard and cutting through Bonnie Doone to Honeycutt Road to avoid construction on McArthur Road.

Bonnie Doone, which has long been plagued by illegal drug activity, prostitution and break-ins, was the subject of a Police Department anti-crime campaign that wrapped up last year.

Williams said he dropped Sarty off at a mobile home park off Johnson Street, then agreed to take her across the boulevard. He said he was pulled over as he left the park.

Williams said there was no evidence he picked up Sarty for prostitution, including the fact that he didn’t have any money. “Giving someone a ride is not a crime,” he said in his statement. “Officer Rubio said I should have known she was a prostitute based on the way she was dressed.”

He said her dress “was contemporary with the overwhelming majority of young women in America and the notion that I was supposed to know she was a prostitute because she had on a dress above her knees is ludicrous.”

Consent searches

For almost two years, Williams has been critical of the Police Department’s past practice of stopping and searching drivers. Statistics compiled by the state showed a majority of the drivers searched were black. Williams has accused some officers of racially profiling drivers.

Former Police Chief Tom Bergamine vehemently denied the accusation, but because of the community concerns, his department instituted several changes this spring. Police now have to obtain written permission from a driver to conduct a consent search if the officer has no probable cause.

Jimmy Buxton, president of the Fayetteville branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said Williams has long been an advocate for civil rights and against racial discrimination. He said the branch will assume Williams is innocent until proven otherwise and, therefore, will expect him to continue to be outspoken on community issues.

Comments that the Fayetteville Observer tried to suppress;

“Want to catch bad guys?”Therein lies the problem. A police officer’s job is NOT to catch bad guys, it is to ENFORCE THE LAW written in the Constitution and what the legislature votes on and the governor signs. Police aren’t there to ‘fight crime’ or ‘catch the bad guy’. There is a VERY big difference in the way an officer views the public. When the officer goes to work every day with ‘enforce the law’ on his or her brain, he puts the citizens and the law first. However, when an officer views his job as a ‘crime fighter’, he views the Constitution and the citizens as an obstacle. Don’t ever forget that!

You couldn’t be more wrong, AtEaseOfficer. You are obviously naive when it comes to our community, and have quoated some entry level criminal justice book to make your point. The Fayetteville Police Department is fully aware of the Constitution, and it’s officers continually put their lives on the line to protect the community’s citizens. Crime Fighter is a great reference to the officers that are out there preying on the criminals who continually prey on our innocent people. Society has gotten worse, but yet we continue to handcuff our law enforcement officers. Our courts, including the DA’s Office, Judges, and Defense Attorneys continue to maintain a liberal mentality that does nothing but make our streets less safe. Its amazing that Fayetteville still has officers that want to work, because all they receive is belittlement. I’m positive there are men and women in uniform fighting crime, and doing so within the limitations of the Constitution and case law. Innocent people need to start standing up for whats right, because the only people speaking up are the ones committing crime, the ones that are naive, or the ones that are too ignorant to believe their people are at fault. Until there is a consequence for crime, our community is doomed, because more and more people have no morals. Without morals and no fear of consequence, these individuals and groups will run over the hardworking and innocent.

Well FPD caught the bad guy all right, the granddaddy of them all. Thank you FPD for exposing Troy Williams for who he really is, a criminal. Some will actually believe this guy was just giving a stranger a ride home at 1:30 in the morning in a high crime area and also believe the prostitute lied to police. A reasonable person will not. Game Set Match, Your Hero is now Zero. Can the police now resume crime fighting? This city is a mess.

“You are obviously naive when it comes to our community”cc. The Constitution makes no exception for demographics or regional trends, and if it can be suspended or ignored even for a minute then it fails to be a constitution. Don’t mistake me, cc. I most definitely am NOT a cop basher. I would take a bullet for anyone on the FPD, truly. But here’s my point, and the big difference between a “Law Enforcer” and one who feels it’s his job to “Catch the Bad Guy”.Say a man is merely walking down the street with a pistol holstered to his hip––which is completely legal and among our top 2 rights––the Law Enforcer sees that the man is breaking no laws and well within his Constitutional rights, maybe gives him a second look, and goes about his business. In fact, that officer will ‘support and defend’ that guy’s right to do so, as he has sworn to.The officer who views his job as catching the bad guy, on the other hand, sees that and immediately stops the guy. He demands to see an ID––even though the man is not required to give it––often with gun drawn on the citizen. He feels he has to check the man out for a few hours, and he has to make it known that open carry, while completely legal, will not go unnoticed on HIS streets. The ‘crime fighter’ officer makes the law up as he goes, which is completely illegal. He looks for ways AROUND the law. An officer should catch the bad guy when a known bad guy is on the loose, but when he feels that his mission every day is to catch bad guys as a blanket term, he assumes it’s his job to sift through the citizenry to find the bad guys, and it’s not; the Fourth Amendment spells it out quite clearly.I’m not naive, I’m not some pansy criminal justice major, and again, I’m not a cop hater.

Really? Lol. Im sure the good people in the Bonnie Doone who are fighting to cleanup their neighborhood appreciate that your trolling their neighborhood in the middle of the night and keeping the local prostitutes in business. And you wanted to have access to confidential records of the Fayetteville police officers. Glad that didnt happen. Also Troy being exonerated and being found not guilty in court is two different things.

AtEaseOfficer,Fair enough! I would say, though, that in this community, most all Fayetteville officers would recognize the importance of 2nd Amendment rights. If your scenario were to happen, corrective action would be warranted, but that wouldn’t mean there was a systemic problem. All cops should be aware of their surroundings, however, and not recognizing an armed person would be irresponsible. How they do that is the issue, and I would hope it would be done lawfully and with respect to the responsible gun owner. The officers of the Fayetteville Police Department, whether critics want to admit it or not, are as well trained and professional as you will find. They make mistakes, but they are also human and those mistakes are very rarely mistakes of the heart. They are normally bone head mistakes that are easily corrected. Most police officers are of a conservative mindset, and to me, that means they don’t see the Constitution as a flexible document that is ever changing. The liberal mindset thinks that way, however, and there is the issue. What are the majority of attorneys and judges? They are liberal! Just my opinion!

at ease officer,The saying to catch bad guys is just that a saying. Yes your right having a gun on your hip is very legal, but we can stop and talk to anybody if they refused to talk to us and are not breaking the law they are free to go. I can ask who you are, where are you coming from, and where are you going? If you refuse to answer that is fine. I would say with two mass shootings in two weeks people are on edge a little bit and if we get a call of a man walking around with a gun on his hip guess what we have a duty to respond to the call. Also look up the term armed to terror of the public.

BTW, if FPD can release the video of man claiming racism, why can’t they release the video of this incident, if one exists.
