    His name should be "Idiot". Another stellar citizen from the inner city ghetto of Kinston who rises above any challenge and meets it with grit and determination(besides a firearm) to become...A WANTED FELON!!!

    His first Dept. of Correction record has a date offense when he was 16 years old. He was ordered to complete IMPACT...THAT obviously was NOT successful.

    I am quite sure "????" misread the article. Either way, I am sure that the fine young man pictured on this site was just trying to clear up an argument. If you will take not of his exotic hair style,you will see that he was likely an ambassador to another country and is here working on his Doctrate at one of our fine higher learning establishments. I am quite sure that Mr. Lewis never intended for anything bad to happen, and it was likely a malfunction of the gun that caused it to "go off". I think a buyout of all weapons from law abiding citizens is in order so that we can protect our fine citizens from them. It could have been you holding that faulty weapon..think about your family! I hope they are able to find Mr. Lewis to ensure that he has not suffered any kind of stress from this ordeal. Have they checked out the local library by chance? Either that, or down at the local homeless shelter where he likely volunteers his spare time to help the poor.

    Check out his Dept. of Correction record... http://webapps6.doc.state.nc.us/apps/offender/offend1?DOCNUM=0621843&SENTENCEINFO=yes&SHOWPHOTO=yes. He SHOULD be wanted for a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon because he has ALREADY been convicted of that!

Each time we have to go to the hospital or doctor,we will just have to pay a little extra to cover these guys.Aint America great?
