    I THINK AS "PARENTS" WE NEED TO STOP AND THINK BEFORE SAYING "MY CHILD WILL NEVER DO THAT" BECAUSE YOU CAN BE THE BEST PARENT IN THE WORLD AND THAT "CHILD" AND SOMETHING CAN STILL GO WRONG. ALL YOU CAN DO IS PRAY THAT YOUR "CHILD" WILL TURN OUT TO BE A RESPECTABLE ADULT. AS FOR THE SIXTEEN YEAR OLD...........I DO HOPE THAT'S HER FIRST CHILD AND THAT SHE DON'T ANYMORE CHILDRENS AT HOME, IF THIS POOR SOUL DO HAVE A HOME. YOU JUST NEVER KNOW.

    Perhaps child abuse or child endangerment charges should be brought against the pregnant women

    These 3 will be given free room and board, To watch TV, lazy around, play basket ball and complain that they didn't receive fair treatment. "My baby would never do that."

    We live in a world where we teach people they can't get what they want without having to break a sweat. These people should be put in front of a firing squad of their peers and let them determine whether to pull the trigger on these senseless selfish excuses for human beings. It's not a racist thing. My opinion would be the same even if these folks weren't black.

    Good work by the Goldsboro PD and anyone else who may have given a tip or information to help solve this. These suspects had no regards for the value of life and the two victims could have wound up deceased. They need to spend some serious time behind bars.

    How about TWO counts of attempted murder.I doubt they shot at the employees intending NO HARM.
