    Greenville does not have over 100,000 people. There are about 80,000. I guess the empty police car that sits in the Sheetz across the street did not deter anyone.... That's great police work.

    The Radar cops were on 14th street yesterday.No School zones there. I Agree that the School Zones need policing.I Did note that the police chief needs more officers.So i guess the problem might be solved when the city council wakes up & hires more officers. The Breakins are totally out of control.These Thugs are taking over our city. I Have a big bad dog in my house & He will protect me & My Home. Better watch your back when you go out to places like wal mart & The Plaza mall & Take everything valuable out of your car every night. I would not work at Kangaroo even they paid me $50.00 Per Hour.

    You know where the motorcycle cops get alot of speeders? IN SCHOOL ZONES!!! Guess what that saves.... KIDS LIVES!! Joe has it right... under 200 police officers and over 100,000 people... not going to work!

    Charles....welcome to the real world. Crime happens, especially in a city with over 100,000 people and under 200 police officers. The best thing for greenville citizens to do is ARM YOURSELVES! All that was needed was one ccw permit holder in that store and as soon as the thug threatened life he could be eliminated. The criminals all carry weapons, its time for the citizens to get smart. The most effective form of policing is society policing itself.

    Something has to be done about all these armed robberies & breakins of cars & Homes in Greenville. I Do know that Greenville is not safe anymore. What is it going to take for the cops to stop this stuff from happening? "The Citizens Of Greenville need to demand answers from the police & City Council". One would think that these thugs would get the message after one of them got shot & Killed @ the charles Street ATM. The City Council needs to give the Police Chief more money to stop this stuff. Maybe the police needs to spend more time on this area & Less radar checks on speeders.I Was put yesterday & Saw 3 drivers pulled over by motorcycle cops. Maybe they should be watching for robbers & Not Speeders? Somebody is going to get hurt & Shot sooner or later at one of these robberies. If i was a company,i would not invest one plug nickle in Greenville.Crime is worse in Greenville than i have ever seen it.

    The assailant was a younger person in need of money.
