    He's not gone from G'ville ! How would he leave with money from beer can sells. If the community would pull together he's probaly right under the P.D.'s nose. I just think he is another misunderstood young man that needs help. About fourty years making big rocks into little ones should help. Hard labor that's something I'M sure he knows nothing about.

    The only thing "certified" about a gang member, is the are "certified punk idiots". The cruel and unusual punishment thing needs to be nullified for gang members. Lock them in a cell with NO contact with the outside world or humans.

    Back in the good old days, when varmints caused problems, like coyotes or wolves preying on livestock, they put a bounty on them.There was no bag limit,year round season, and you were paid for each one that you trapped or shot. If they would enact this for thugs and gang members,the vermin could be eradicated in a short time.

    I have said before, gangs are getting out of control in Greenville. That "CERTIFIED GANG MEMBER" needs to be put to death if found guilty! What's the use of giving him life in prison & making the tax payers feed & house him!!! That's why the prisons are overcrowded now. They just built a new facility in Greenville & it's probably already full. They are living better than some people who go out & make an honest living. This is sad. For someone to tell you they are affiliated with a gang, they have a problem, that's nothing to be proud of. Dirty, low down, thug...

    Tadpole, WITN used "certified" as a head line. The police said he was a "validated member of UBN Blood Gang", that is pretty much a certification (I don't think they carry ID cards). The field training takes place in your neighborhood.

    Shameful : If the stereotype fits .... Wear it. If these people could settle there differences like people instead of animals, they might get a little more respect. Takes one tough man to pull a trigger. Guess he couldn't have taken a whipping.

    Where was this parking lot? Rumor has it this occurred at the hospital parking lot and everyone is keeping this quiet.
