    First and for most, police don't have the right to say that it is gang related, because that was my family, you don't know him, he was a good person, the police need to digg deeper than that- all I wanna say is Big Cuz- I miss you and I love you- we all love you-1

    Too many gangs in Pitt County and not enough law enforcement!

    The next thing you might here is that crime is not a Law Enforcement Problem, it's a Crime problem. No Politician will point a finger at another Politician in Pitt County or the Politicians who sit in Raleigh from Pitt County. Much to busy protecting their name from Public opinion & getting US Government Grant Money to start another program that does nothing but give them a line in the media. We the people suffer from the zeal of the Politician keeping their seat.

    I do not feel safe at all in Greenville. Our children are not safe from being bullied on school buses, or even at school. We are not safe in our homes. Most of us are 'literally' exposed daily to some visual form of gang affiliated activity. As we've all seen in the news recently, there is no restaurant, no convenience store, not even a department store parking lot that is safe. You can say I'm giving up without a fight. But I'd rather give up now while my kids are still relatively unaffected, and while I'm still alive, than stay around here and die trying to work in this pitiful excuse for a quality of life we have here in Pitt County. It's not just in Greenville either. It stretches from one end of the county, Ayden/Grifton, to the other, Bethel & Belvoir. This is not a culture in which I wish to live or raise my children. I'm gone. And to those who say I will find this type of violence anywhere I go, I beg to differ. There are still civilized places in the US to live.
