    To Posted by : to Bob...I am not representing the people of Greenville, N.C. as an elected official. She should not belong to a group that does not represent the majority of the people of the town she represents. Her belonging to that group indicates she supports anti-gun owner people, which is GURANTEED by the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, which still is the governing document of this country! If she wishes to be anti-gun personally then that is also guranteed by the constitution, but only if she doesn't use her personal views to make her decisions for the town of Greenville...she is their to represent the majority of Greenville not her on agendas! Many of the Mayors who joined that group have withdrawn their name, Publiclly supporting that group once they found it what the groups real agenda was! Her membership lends support to their distorted values!

    Hmmmmmmm, I got a good question. Where are the most important participants of this "summit" ? (rofl)... the citizens of Greenville. Where they can voice concerns on the job everyone is doing.

    You act as if she doesn't have the right to belong to that type of group. Or is it that her rights don't count as much as yours?

    Make sure the chief is actually there and listening. I think he nods off sometimes. Especially after that srupid comment he made a few weeks ago.

    How about the Mayor of Greenville, why isn't she on the list, where she can explain why she belongs to an anti-gun group which doesn't feel law abiding citizens have the right to own a firearm to protect themselves! Why is a preacher on the list of participants? Hmmmm, I smell another whitewash, coverup and excuse making session...I guess PR goes further than doing your job successfully!

    This should be good!!I'm sure everything will be addressed openly and honestly. It should be a short meeting since crime is not as bad as we all think. At least that's what we're told.

    This should of been done years ago, what! enough people has died now and they need to do something, get real crime isn't something you should even have to discuss. When laws are more strict on people and they see that it isn't a paradise anymore crime will start to decline, I didn't say stop but decline.

    Well you cant put all the blame on Chief Anderson. As what so many people dont realize is that when they increase patrols in one area that means patrols in other areas get decreased. The city government needs to hire more officers. Also stop wasting money on cosmetic upgrades like the brick crosswalks and painted logo in the center of the road at the intersection of Hooker Rd and Greenville Blvd near the convention center. I am not sure if the city paid for it but if they did that was money that should have been spent on city services like paying for additional police officers.
