    Kinston and Greenville may as well become one large crime filled city. What a joke. I actually feel sorry for this boy. He has had many issues since middle school - he went to a school that I worked at. Very sad! He's old enough now to make better choices but a lifetime of wrong ones certainly doesn't help!

    Darn sure was not working. Doing what most there age do. Hang out on corners and in towns trying to buy / sell drugs, rob people, and play gang roulette. Typical. Draft all of them. 18 to 34 unless in college or working a full time job. Send them straight to Afganastan and Iraq. Prefer the Helmand Province. Lets see how there gang way of life goes over there.

    "Reall?": An 18 yr old is allowed to be anywhere they want at any hour of the day or night as long as it's accessible to the public without restriction. What's your point re age? Would it have been different if they were 58?
