    Sam don't you know people in jail like it there, they have not a single worry in the world. They have heat ,ac,food,free healthcare, what else could they ask for. They are happy.Why do you think they keep going home? Homer, you're like me, you are going to have to suffer,because we don't do anything illegal. I guess that's what we get for being good citizens. Jim, you r also right can't even protect my property or family anymore. This is really sad. there is no more good news only bad.

    Sam, if people do what they're suppose to do, then you wouldn't have to worry about law enforcement arresting them. With the economy the way it is, crime is rising so police need all the help they can get. obama's actually doing something right. Keep it up Mr. Pres.

    Sam, why are you always so negative when it comes to topics like this? It seems that any comment you make in regards to police officers is always so negative, like the comment that they re-sell the drugs they confiscate off the streets?

    Hey Homer, Contact Beaufort Community College and enroll in Basic Law Enforcement Training (a local agency might even endorse you and you will get free tuition) and then you can go work with law enforcement and then you too, can benefit from the stimulus money they are getting.

    Law Enforcement needs it! With all the job losses in eastern nc, crime is on the rise. We need more police officers on our streets.
