    To bigfruitbasket your pedantry may not make you many friends lol but "your" (you're) right about the telling lack of grammatical skills so illustrated by various posters on here! Or maybe "their" too lazy to care. Just as long as they have a forum to spout off their opinions or simply to troll. BTW I'm a grammar/spelling Nazi too! ;-)

    Why would anybody want to just point a pistol to drivers like that. Did he think it was funny to do that? Well it is not. What a moron!

    I agreed with some of you but apparently it wasnt good enough to get posted.

    This idiot will probably be back on the streets before whatever he's been smoking wears off. Throw the book at him!

    Sheesh! Some of you people need grammar lessons. Consider "their" versus "they're." Also, consider "thats" versus "that's." Or even, "hes" versus "he's."

    This lunatic will probabaly spend about a week at Cherry or Brynn Marr. And then he will be set free, back on the streets of Greenville once again.

    the Greenville PD needs to do something about the bad eggs in Greenville. If their black so be it. If their white so be it. If their mexicans so be it. But lets do something about all of this crime. People are talking about Greenville being a HIGH CRIME RATE place and no one whats to live in a high crime rate place.

    Maybe he was tired of sleeping in his car and wanted a warm bed with 3 square meals a day through the winter months.

    Once again the African American race embarrasses Greenville. Go figure though.
