    Don't waste your time on comments about the crime in Greenville. It is obvious the powers that be do not care. Does anyone have evidence that they do?

    I don't understand why the media omits the race of the individuals who are reported to commit these ACTS OF TERRORISM in our community. Its obvious that certain crimes are increasing in areas around ECU since they have been placed in Section 8 housing after all the students fled to other parts of town fearing their lives so they could go to college and become PRODUCTIVE citizens...East 5th Street used to be safe...now they target the areas where working, college students are likely to be..yeah at 1 AM after they were downtown SPENDING MONEY..God forbid that..

    I am with Joe...we may no need to bulldoze the town...well at least not all of it....I will be okay with certain portions being taken down...But we do need some city leaders and city administrators who are willing to change this town....for the better!!!

    I wonder if these handguns were legally purchased or the felons,oops, ALLEGED felons were legally permitted to carry. Obviously the $190 to get a carry permit in Pitt County is preventing the possesion of firearms by criminals...or is it?
