    1000 blacks commit a crime, 1000 blacks are arrested, I guess that is a racial issue? DUH

    I think that "tax payers" are loosing religion and patience in the same measure of this "on-going tune." Commit a crime and go back to a "Luxurious House of Corrections," where the corrections officials are corrupt, and the life of leisure follows. If Prisons were run like Prisons, I don't think that crime would be as it is. We pay an exorbitant amount to house inmates. And NO, I don't feel sorry for any of you. I am 62 years old. I have never committed a crime. I am white, Irish (grew up poor), and I have WORKED since I was 7 years old. Now, tell me a sad story.

    Absolutely CM! Lets think about the tax dollars spent to keep a murderer off the streets! I mean, c'mon! Aren't there some more streams out there that need to be re-done? Or hey! How bout another GTP in Lenoir co! And what about that Barbie ordeal?? I mean, we need to pour some funds into getting that nuisance off the shelves! Come on.. Some things are worth paying for. Raising other peoples illegitamate kids? Supporting people too lazy to work? Yeah, not so much, but keeping some thug off the street? i think thats fairly worth it, & will continue to be until they can just be shot on-sight upon committing these crimes.

    Just think about how much money these two men have cost taxpayers. I would bet that they are illegitamate. Taxpayers payed for their pre-natal care, child birth, food, clothes and education. How many children have these men fathered that they do not support? And now taxpayers must pay to keep them in jail. I feel good about how my tax dollars are being spent. Don't you?

    this is not a race issue. omg. get a life people. this is about two men who shot a woman. Yes they deserve to die with the most pain possible, and I would feel the same way if it was a white man that done the crime. Crime is Crime no matter what the color, they need to be punished severely and painfully.

    How do you all make this a race issue? I swear some people dig at any thing?! Cant we judge this for what it is and be bothered at the fact that ANY person would take ANY other persons life! as long as we keep making race, it will be an issue. BTW I dont buy any of the crap that well has spilled out of his mouth. Theres something all people have and that is FREE WILL
