Business Owners Putting Foot Down Against Greenville Crime

The recent rash of crime in the city of Greenville has business owners asking for answers.

It's seems like there's a robbery happening every other day in Greenville and police say there is an increase in armed robberies so they're addressing it. Thursday morning, the Greenville-Pitt Chamber of Commerce held a crime safety meeting at Cornerstone Missionary Baptist church for business owners. They listened to Greenville's police Chief William Anderson explain the increase of crime and how they're putting every officer on the road to patrol the toughest areas of the city.

Chief Anderson says they arrested several individuals in connection with crimes. Currently, 29 suspects are still behind bars.

    I'd say focus resources away from foolishness such as writing tickets to honest citizens who's license plates are a couple days expired, to slightly more important things such as the violent CRIME which is front and center. (There's a saying that's appropriate for this occasion, and it's about the guy who was straightening lounge chairs on the deck of the Titanic as it went down.) Hello, does anybody else get it????

    I think it is a poor excuse for Chief Anderson to blame the recent crime rate increase in Greenville on National Statistics. The bottom line is crime has increased dramatically in Greenville and by him being chief should be held accountable. Maybe he needs to take a second look on his "Community Policing".
