    Well, good luck finding a crime free zone anywhere else in the country. It doesn't exist.

    I know of two prior ECU students that left due to the crime in and around Greenville. As a parent of a college age student I would not allow my kid to go to ECU althought I graduated from there. What a shame. I just returned from Greenville, shopping with the wife............and packing a big, big fully loaded handgun.......just waiting!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Correction; I meant to say Greenville Blvd, not Arlington.

    So the GPD were supposed to know that someone was going to hit the Arby's on Arlington? Were they supposed to look into a crystal ball? Maybe search the clouds for a sign? C'mon! It's Arby's on Arlington! Who even goes there anymore?! When the GPD can be everywhere at ONCE is the day that there will be NO crime in Greenville. Get over yourself.

    @Dan: Too funny, @Jeff...uh, no...I see lots of people pay cash there, us too. many targets are just targets of opportunity. @Dave...getting to be true. Now if the Krispy Kreme were next to that Arby's, they might not have gotten robbed.

    Thugs will be Thugs. Hey G'ville Citizen, the Thug to cop ratio in Greenville is way too high to stop this from happening. We should be used to this by now.
