    I have been saying for a long time, and have posted here on several occasions, and here it goes again: if the local LEO's will start doing some basic, normal law enforcement, like enforcing the littering laws, window tint laws, and other simple things, they will have immediate access to many of the people involved in more serious criminal activity. Regular, non-glamourous law enforcement achieves results. You don't have to set up some special operation. Just observe and take action.

    In response to Grandmas comment: 19 yrs. old is not a child! Have young men changed that much since our time of being young? I'm a 78 yr. old proud black man! Bottom line is he broke the law and resisted officers!! The same officers that you or I would call if one of these "children" were trying to cause ourselves, our families, our homes harm. NAACP, Well, Grandma, I don't see them doing much around here but embarrassing us even more with lacking research of issues when they try to help!! Our young men are still making bad choices that are still affecting us as a race. I did 2 tours in Vietnam,retired twice and raised 3 kids,whom are all college graduates! I raised my kids to not have a chip and they succeeded as a result. I'd like to see us not cripple our young men anymore with excuses! I probably won't see that in my time!! God Bless!!!

    check nccourts.org. there is not a Felony Resisting charge, felony paraphernalia or felony assault on gov't official. They are all misdemeanors! The guy was charged with 5 charges. 2 felonies and 3 misdemeanors!!!!

    ...these ungodly inconsiderate punks are hurting Greenville's appeal and public image. It's also generally true that the in your face loud music crowd, white and black, are crime prone. No decent citizen should be subjected to this garbage. Keep it in your stupid rat hole, apartment, or dorm room.

    I am just so happy the police in Greenville are finally doing something about the loud music! I hate when my windows are up an I can not hear my own radio due to the person beside me. And the dirtier the lyrics...the louder they play it. Now if they will start enforcing the " no parking in the fire lane" in front of Food Lion I will be one happy camper!

    First, I don't know about the rest of you-but I am TIRED of hearing that loud garbage day in, day out, as the jacked-up cars drive up and down the streets. I just want to be able to hear my own music in my own car, or hear my own TV in my own house NOT boom, boom, boom! As far as the drug charge-"stupid is as stupid does". You're stupid enough to do or sell drugs, then you are stupid enough to get caught!
