    Thanks for your thought JL. I have been in Greenville 18 years and have never witnessed a crime. I know that crime does happen too frequently, as elsewhere. But, my question is more to the point of why EVERY time a crime happens in Greenville, people feel an urge to pile on and berate the city, when this happens so infrequently with other towns that also have crime occur. More to your point, the derision that this city takes for crime seems disproportional to what occurs here vs. other cites. Again, it is my opinion (only) that perception fuels what people post and it is fashionable for people with their own hidden agendas (much of it based on their own personal emotional health issues) to blame Greenville. New Bern has had alot of shootings and robberies lately, yet no one writes about this being characteristic to the city (because it is not!) Again, I use New Bern for example only as it is a fine city that I do enjoy. But, there is a double standard.

    Greenville is definitely more dangerous than New Bern. Nothing to do with size but consider the college and the population there. It's a great town to visit (as we do) but we make sure we're outta there by dark! I know some students that were going to ECU but changed their mind because of the crime up there. Sad but true...crime is everywhere, including New Bern but Greenville is still more dangerous.

    Something that I have noted lately. When a bad act occurs in Greenville, these blogs fill with anti-Greenville posts. New Bern has had much recent violence. I don't wish to call out New Bern, as violence is EVERYWHERE, and I think New Bern is a nice town. Yet, when these bad acts occur in neighboring towns, there is rarely a post calling out that city or bemoaning the locale as with Greenville. Greenville has a larger population, so some of this is natural. Without going into a statistical dissertation, someone explain to me the apparent double standard? My hypothesis: A. Greenville is larger than many towns around here, much of the local ENC media is based here, so is a larger target. B. as home of ECU and a large hospital, attention is given by both anti-Pirates whose loyalties are with other schools and people that move from somewhere else and are internally miserable. They would be miserable here or anywhere. But, instead of looking inward it is easier to blame external forces.

    maybe they should have a draft, all of these people that don't have anything else to do but go around shooting and killing people, that probably has been sitting on their butts for god knows how long and doing nothing.!!!!! go get some other career instead of ending up in prison where i'm paying for all of your luxuries!!!
