Thompson was jailed on a $10,000 secured bond.

    You people are so ignorant. First, not all black are on welfare. Im black and my family has never been on welfare. Second its 2010 we are in a recession who isn't on welfare or unemployment nowadays. Also you need to stop being so racist, because lets be honest half the things you have and do, you would not have right now, if not invented by a black person.

    No sin is greater than another. all of you closed minded people are doing just as bad judging and bad mouthing someone YOU DONT EVEN KNOW. It's funny how Jeanne Williams Jones embezzled over $97,644.70 from YOUR OWN COUNTY HOSPITAL and i bet half of the things you have said about this young lady weren't said about her. Why wasn't she accused of being a thug? on welfare? ...hmmmmm.... ask yourself that. I went to school with avery and she is one of the sweetest, most polite and well spoken person that you could meet. She made a mistake. you aren't god, dont judge. and shame on you WITNtv for allowing such comments to be published.

    I think all of you should mind your bussiness because you all speculate before you inflamate you and you never know a persons circumstances and oh by the way she will not be on welfare because she don't have any kids.

    You white people be so negative when it come to blacks. We are people too and are smart. Just because we have different color skin do not make us any less educated.

    Why are we so quick to judge? Unless you know this young woman personally all these negative comments should be kept to yourself. For all of the ignorant people who assume she is on pubic assistance why dont you try visiting your local DSS and get the statics on who recieves services. Crime knows no race so stop trying to put everybody in the same basket. The system is so unfair and its so evident. A black person and a white person does the same crime the black person is placed on a $25,000 dollar bond and the white person is placed on a $5000.00 dollar bond. This is not about black and white, this is about right and wrong. If this person has a history then yes she should be punished but if this is her first offense put her on probation and give her community service, dont lock her up and throw away the key. In closing you know what you have done but you dont no what you will be faced with in life and what you might do.

    TO: EMPLOYED BLACK WOMAN - I don't care what color she is or what her "situation" is. RIGHT IS RIGHT AND WRONG IS WRONG.

    Nobody is perfect. Everyone is so quick to pass judgment on her but no one knows her situation. Some of you would quickly send her to prison because of her race, that shouldn't be a deciding factor. There are rapists and murderers that you would leave on the streets because they're white. I don't remember seeing posts like this when the white guy robbed First Citizens. He looked like an average white man. Was he on welfare? If so, were his kids getting all of it? You people disgust me. You're always pointing fingers. I am a black female with a child. Am I on welfare? If you had to judge me you would probably say yes. I am a 27 year old black mother who does not receive any type of goverment assistance, who has great credit and no criminal record and with a degree and a career as a manager of a financial institution. Didn't see that one coming did you?!?
