    n, perhaps if you spent a few hours studying the FBI crime statistics you would be better able to get a grip on this situation. Ignorance could be bliss, I wouldn't know and don't want to know. Denying truth to make myself and others "feel good about self" is not an option for me. Doesn't appear to be an option for voter either. You should try reality sometime "n", join the fight to save the country from it's own stupidity.

    today on my way into greenville from 264 towards gville blvd i saw two guys riding bikes down the median, one on the inbound and one on the outbound lane going in the same direction towards the intersection of 264 and gville blvd. i noticed one had a very feminine face like the one above on the right. its not enough to go on so im not calling cops, plus they could be anywhere now..this was a little after 11am. but its enough to make one wonder... i thought to myself that they could be thugs, because that looks like something a thug would do, ride into traffic on a busy highway (they were in the road enough to be in the way), looking menacing! ps. to those who are against rehabilitation in prison, i wish there were such thing as rehabilitating every prisoner. because not all of them go away for life!

    With a name like Mike Tyson it was only a matter of time before he ended up in jail.

    Well said, Bob! Well, Robert, I see your point. So I say lets skip the part where our tax dollars go to keeping fine gentlemen like this off the street,Cuz my God! It could go to building another park or a bridge or something we actually need! & just shoot em. Yep. Shoot them on the spot! That way, all those horrible CO's can be fired too, & it will be like killing 2 birds with 1 stone! But, oh wait!That won't work either 'cuz those guys are somebodys kid, brother, uncle, cousin 3x removed, etc & they deserve a chance to be, what? Rehabilitated! At the rate that these lil thugs are going, with any luck they will all just end up killing themselves off. It will be cheap & there will be no one to blame except for them! Of course, some people will continue to blame the cops, & the CO's & everybody but them, but, small price to pay for the rest of us that know better. Good luck to the officers in finding these guys. Be careful out there!
