    To all making jokes yes thats the best way to get over it but my daughter has now been robbed at her work twice in three months shes a teen . We cant tell her to quit she loves her job we cant pay her car insurance she has to work she cant go to another fast food place because the same thing could happen . Its scary I know thankfully my daughter has amazing managers that think fast and good employees get some cops out there at night would make this mom feel safe

      The restaurants should staff a security guard from 8pm until close every night. That may help alleviate some of the problems. I thought the police chief said crime was going down.

      Everybody "have to be thugs" because so many of you dress and/or act in a similar manner. If you don't want to be classified as a thug, I suggest you get off the corner and more importantly off whatever government support you are given and concern yourself with the welfare of "yall or your child". And no, I don't mean that check.

    Let me guess the description of this thug.......hhmmmm. Greenville should be voted the "safest town in NC?" I don't know how ECU even gets decent students anymore. As a parent, I would NEVER let my child go there. Ben, you really said a mouthful of truth! Greenville police have their work cut out for them....glad I am not one of them.

    What, another robbery in Greenville? Seems to be a daily occurance over there. Perhaps more Social programs and tax dollars are needed. Pay up.

    Some of the problem is some people are having so many children so their welfare check will increase & their food stamps. They have these kids then don't "raise" them to be decent people. They don't care what their kids do, who they hang out with or where they go. Its all about them getting more government assistance.

      I saw this happening 20 years ago. It's just worse now. Back then it was just one race doing it. Now all people are doing it. People are leeches & animals. Some are lower than animals.

    The courts don't do anything to these thugs & the thugs know that. It's not going to get any better until they are punished. What happened to the days when they had to have to be on a chain gang and work.

    If KFC had posted a sign out front that read,"No Firearms Allowed," this robbery would not have taken place.

      I know! How dumb do you have to be not to post up one of those signs?! They only cost $1 too; they could have posted it on every door. :)

          Somehow I think your sarcasm detector must be broken :) I am a CCH permit holder, so I understand the premise all too well.

          lol, ok guys give her a break. Sometimes it's really hard to detect sarcasm through text based language (especially the internet). We really do need an international sarcasm symbol

      They tried posting a "No Firearms Allowed" sign. It cut down on business too much.
