    There's a simple solution to this. Drug test and birth control as a requirement for any public assistance. Tie benefits to receiving a GED, or higher education. Make foodstamps applicable to only healthy foods, no soda, no sugar, ect. Require 2 job applications a week

    here's an idea,,, instead of the government giving you a house, phone, health care, food... get a job & stop sponging off of those who go to school and actually work.. this story is typical of the mindset of this part of New Bern

    Send them to Florida. They're doing drug testing for welfare checks.

    The comments in this line of discussion are small-minded and racist. No wonder our communities can't get ahead, we are like crabs in a bucket.

      If this is what you call people who are telling the truth, then I will proudly wear those labels.

    WITN, why doesn't this article mention that this mob was BLACK people ? If there were a mob of angry WHITES threatening a city, we'd be called angry racists. Stop being so politically correct.
