Parents want answers about incident
Family visibly shaken after
seeing video of daughter
BY TEVIN STINSON
THE CHRONICLE
After seeing video footage of their
daughter being handled by a school
resource officer, Sharon and Jeffery
Rogers were visibly shaken. They want
answers.
It has been over a week since Officer
Randall White handled llth-grader
Asahiah Rogers while trying to break up a
fight at North Forsyth High School.
Yet, school administrators at North
Forsyth have yet to return any of the fami
ly's calls.
According to Sharon Rogers, adminis
trators have not handled the situation in a
professional manner. The school failed to
initially tell Sharon Rogers that an officer
with the Winston-Salem Police
Department had appeared to have caused
the injuries that needed immediate medical
"1 attention.
"I never even got
I a call from the school
I when this first hap
I penedshe said. "All
I those people there,
I someone should have
H called."
According to
reports, White saw an
argument between
Asahiah and another
student escalate into a fight. When he tried
to break up the fight and take her into cus
tody, Asahiah sustained a head injury.
Sharon Rogers said school administra
tors gave her the runaround as she made
multiple attempts to see the video on the
school's cameras.
"They continued to give me excuses
why they couldn't let me see the video,"
she said. "Cameras are everywhere in that
school, I know they have it and have seen
it, but they would not let me see it, which
doesn't make any sense to me.

Fallen soldier of Korean War returns to brother
Army PFC Frank Worley was

Less than a week before Veteran's Day, a Korean War
veteran was returned home and laid to rest.
Army PFC Frank Worley, an African-American, was
buried with full military honors at Salisbury National
Cemetery on Friday, Nov. 6.
Worley was a member of A Battery, 503rd Field
Artillery Battalion, Second Infantry Division, which is
part of Support Force 21.
He was reported missing in action on Feb.12, 1951,
after his unit battled Chinese forces near Hoengsong,
South Korea.
Years went by before Worley's remains were found.
Then, in May of 1992, the North Korean government
repatriated remains that had been recovered near
Namjong-gu, North Korea.
After analysis of some skeletal and dental remains.
DNA proved that they had found Worley. DNA also
proved that Worley was killed during combat.
The remains were then airlifted to Winston-Salem on
Nov. 6, where Frank Worley's surviving brother Leroy

Woman alleges relative abused, family kept from him
BY CASH MICHAELS
FOR THE CHRONICLE
A Winston-Salem
woman alleges that her late
cousin, Napoleon Wilson,
was taken against his will
by Forsyth County Dept. of
Social Services (FCDSS),
and physically abused
while the department
served as his guardian. His
family could do little about
it, she alleges, because they
were blocked from seeing
him several times, and the
Forsyth County Clerk of
Superior Court held pro
ceedings without informing
them regarding his welfare.
There is still much to be
known about the Napoleon
Wilson case that is buried
deep in the files of FCDSS
- files that are not public
record even years after his
death. But this much is
clear - as in a previous case
The Chronicle has reported
on involving the Forsyth
Clerk's Office, orders
issued in an effort to estab
lish a legal guardianship of
Mr. Wilson by FCDSS, and
uncovered by The
Chronicle, were not legal at
all, because they were not
properly entered into the
court record, as mandated
by North Carolina Rules of
Civil Procedure which
directs clerks to file-stamp
and initial all orders they
issue prior to filing.
For Sandra Jackson,
Mr. Wilson's cousin, the
revelations are still painful
years after his passing,
because she believes that
her elderly loved one, like
many others, was targeted,
and then trapped by a sys
tem where his legal rights
were violated, his personal
well-being and estate cor
rupted, and there was little
Wilson's family could do to
advocate for him until the
day he died.
And Ms. Jackson
believes that this has been
happening to many others,
for many, many years.
