    The first rule of survival in Kinston is to stay in the lighted areas on your way home, and that still doesn't mean you won't get robbed. Walking down dirt paths in the dark is a sure way to become a victim. One of these days, or nights, one of these little punks is going to find me, the guy who has a CCW permit and knows how to use his gun. Then there will be one less little lazy, uneducated punk walking the streets of Kinston.

    I am just grateful the Kinston PD is parked behind the convenience store by Wal Mart and giving people tickets for making a u turn around some ridiculous median blocking everyone's access to the theater, the convenience store, and to one of the few restaurants left in this dried up town that can manage to stay open. I guess that is safer than patrolling downtown, just hassle those who will obey the laws.

    Wow. I know alot of good, honest, law abiding citizens who get off of work at 11:00 PM and Midnight, then must dare head home to their families even at the risk of being labeled as a up to no good thug because they are out at a time you think they should not be out. Besides, as a citizen of this United States you don't have to have any reason to be out a 2 or 3 in the morning. You can do it just bacause you want to and should not have to be afraid of what some thug might do. Pull out your pistol and shoot them in the head!

    The only people that should be shot after midnight are the ones that "might" be breaking in to someone's home at that time. Otherwise, as Anonymous says, get yourself home at a reasonable hour!

    No one typically gets shot when home in bed after midnight.

      So now the honest and law abiding citizens should stay fortified inside of their homes by a certain time? What does that say about our society in general?
