    Take a look at the crime pages on this website... There have been NO CUTS to welfare, or any socialist programs in many years, yet the recipients of the gov't dole continue to rape, rob, and pillage the honest working people of this country. It's a lifestyle, people, fueled by the "poor me" mentality of the beneficiaries of the system. These folks are not affected by the "economy" or its recent downturns. It's not about unemployment, or economics; they don't work, have never worked, and have no intention of ever working. It's their lifestyle, and no amount of "feel good" socialism will ever help. Period.

    Every business should follow the example set down by the owner of Lee's Country Kitchen. I haven't heard about any other robbery attempts there.

    Main Moon is a very good Chinese Restaurant. Hope they catch this person and help get his life straightened out, before it is too late.

    Thugs in kinston are getting dumber and dumber. Allow store and restaurant owners to keep a gun behind the counter and eventually there wont be any thugs left to rob places...funeral homes would be busy tho.

    That's a shame! The people there work so hard. They have great food too. Hopefully the whole day's money intake wasn't in the register at the time of the robbery. Vernon Avenue is a rather dangerous area at night, but that's pretty much all there is in Kinston for the convenient location of a business. Sorry for you, Main Moon -- love you guys!

    So the robber came in demanded money, got it and ran out. And they are still searching for him. That sounds way too easy, no wonder they keep robbing places. They get away 95% of the time.

    Was the suspect white, black, mexican, oriental? What was he wearing? You got all the facts but left out a bunch of important stuff. I was in Kinston on vernon ave and may have seen him.
