    Yeah, What DickTracy said or you could be married to the Interm Cheif of Police in Williamston and work at the Martin County Sheriff's Office and jump from School Resource Officer to Investigator with no prior training in investigation and very little patrol experiance. But the trade had to be even so the Interm Cheif had to promote the Supervisor of Investigations wife who is employed with the Williamston Police Dept from patrol to investigations then to Captain of the Dept all within a couple of years. Needless to say many good and expierianced officers left both departments due to this change. God help the citizens of Williamston and Martin County !! Confusing ? Check into it...You will be suprised.

    Anyone thought of going through the training and going into law enforcement-being thoroughly checked out-physically and mentally up for the challenge plus learning all that is required? If you are up for the challenge, you could make a difference in your community but it does take someone that has courage, knowledge, endurance, and patience.You cannot let anger get in your way-you have to uphold and abide by the law.

    How about make this a number one issue.Get a plan together,not just the police but the whole community.There is a answer to these problems,number one take back your neighborhood,be responsible,report anything that looks out of place.I know this has nothing to do with this subject,but I thought the new highway was suspose to put Williamston on the map.Who in the world is trying to bring new business in here.I don!t understand, all these major roads that come though here and we can!t bring any industries here,and do not blame it on the hard times.That is just it you have had time.You people only want what fits your lifestyle to come in here.There have been many jobs lost because you did not want them here.Wake up people,you better take what you can get.As far as I am concern the Bob Martin Center is not doing what it was suspose to do .Point blank we need some leaders who are not afraid to lead and speak up.I could care whether you like what I said or not,the truth be known,most of you who run this county have one mindset and that is self.Wake up and lets get this town and county back where it should be

    So did these two actually live in the projects-on the book and pay rent?

    We live in a "good neighborhood" but even so an event happened to make us think. Our neighborhood is not immune to robberies, drugs. We all have a choice of turning our head-not observing, not doing anything to make our kids-grandkids-our elderly safer. We direspect them by letting them fend for themselves. God sees all this and we are just as guilty as the criminals when we don't help to clean up.It's not an issue of white, black, mexican,asian, or any race-it's about being respectful, God loving, obedient to God's word.Many don't have a clue about God's word or love-we fall short there too. So instead of complaining-get God's word out-go into prisons & share it.Criminals' drug dealers and police & you all have one thing in common-you can be saved by the stripes of blood Jesus shed for us-no one enters the kingdom of God except by Jesus.We have a lot to be thankful fot.

    I retired and moved to Williamston from the DC area. DC is the Capital of welfare. I recently saw a survey on the poor. It stated they seem to find a way to have Flat screen TV's, Smart phones, Ipads, Ipods, 22" Chrome wheels on a $200.00 car, tatoos, etc. The honest, God fearing, law abiding people living in this complex need to stand strong and take back their neighborhood. The police are not mind readers. When they ask questions, you need to answer them. They can't do their job until you do your duty as a citizen.Remember the old saying, "United We Stand...Divided We Fall". Get off your butts and call the police. Your info can be confidential. Please don't let Williamston become a Greenville or Washington, DC. We are better than that. God Bless!

      I agree,wejust need to let them shoot it out like the ok corral we will all be better off i think they need to kick everyone out of the projects and just let the older people live there and if any one else is found there take them to jail. or better make them pay a fine of 1000.00 if not paid make them work for free at a real job

    We can blame it on the police or the projects but what are doing to help stop this problem sitting on the porch watchingit gone and instead of doing something about it you turn your head no matter where we live there is crime , shootings . I agree with Miranda we do need to drug test people on public assistance be less lazy people out there, the people in public assistance are to lazy to work at mcdonalds or places like that.its not a black thing or white thing its how young people are rasied these days they are taught to take but never to give

    Where does Eddie work? Does he have a record? Is this drug related? The police are working on the case.Will people help them or refuse to give information? Can't blame the police.What do you expect for them to travel in-cars with 199,000 miles and outdated equipment? When 1 of them gets shot or injured for trying to stop a criminal, do you appreciate that at all-that they have a family that may live without them for the rest of their lives? Dear Lord,what are people thinking now days-please forgive them for being so selfish and unkind.
