    Wandsworth remodeled as well...just not the outside. The apartments were gutted and completely redone. The exterior of the buildings were such that they didn't need to be redone.

    I am an African American woman.I can not relate to the word thug b/c it has nothing to do with me nor my race.Thugs come in every race including caucasion.My point is, it could happen to anyone anywhere.Don't put yourself in a dangerous situation no matter what part of town you live in.Not a matter of race,or area, just good ole COMMON SENSE!

      And it's quite obvious you are African-American by they way you said "Thugs come in every race including caucasion". If that wasn't racist I don't know what is!

        You seem offended... Is it not true? I'm not racist; just realistic. I have great friends who are caucasion. I think we are all the same! We just come from different walks of life.

    I cannot understand why the Chief cannot clean this place up. Bigger cities are cleaned up almost over night. But Greenville has gotten worse by the day. I'm not placing blame but cannot understand why, those in charge can't take control of Greenville, Kinston and all the crime ridden cities that are much smaller than those being better controlled!!

        I do--it's called Utopia. Unfortunately, no one's quite been able to figure out exactly where it's located yet.

    I think that this is yet another example of our failure to raise young law-abiding adults. And know that it is not specific to the Greenville Area (or G-Vegas as they call it these days...ROFLMBO!!). You should look at some of the stories coming out of the DC Metro Area.

    When and if they tell us the type of gun and whether it is legally registered to someone who lives w/in 100 miles of the apartment we will know more. Until then I suppose she might have felt so safe in those apartments that she fell asleep with the gun and woke because of a bad dream accidentally shooting herself. Could happen, really.

    The word thug is used a lot on this website when it pretains to African-Americans or Mexicans lets just say non-Caucasian. I guess it does not apply to those who you may admire for example black musicians, actors, sports figures and so on. There are bad uneducated, down right nasty people regardless of race. If you ever look at shows like Cops, Jail, Snapped, ID the majority of the people shown are white people but should I label a whole race to a select few who do not know how to act. We should be careful of how we say things about a group of people. And on another note why don't you post your name to these comments instead of hiding behind a label if you feel that strongly about something be bold enough to put your name to it.

      The word "thug" is used because WITN has a moderator, but I'm sure they have their hands full with the ones who use "redneck" as an alternative word too. The black musicians, actors, and sports figures with any success aren't up at wee hours "accidentally" shooting guns at people. I have seen a few of the programs that you've mentioned, and noticed that it's pretty equal concerning race about what they choose to produce...depending on location, that is. Freedom of speech gave me the right to say what I want about who I want. If I wanted to be your buddy, I'd tell you my name. How's that?

        Anti-NAACP - you better be careful what you say about people especially if you do not want to end up in court explaining it to a judge. You mouth will get you in a lot of trouble. I am Anti-Klan and how do ou like that?

          I don't think I'm going to go to court for saying "thug", and I'm flattered that you would use my idea to express what you think.

      The shows you mentioned, particularly Cops, intentionally show more white criminals so as not to offend blacks. You can look this up. While you're at it, look up the FBI stats on crime by ethnicity. Bear in mind that Hispanics are lumped in with the white stats.

      I don't want to stir up a hornet's nest, but to me, the word THUG has always meant just that: THUG. I never attributed it to ethnicity.

    Hey Wendy, the apartments are in fact beside JH Rose...although the RR tracks are there, yes, they are beside..the fact that they are closer to the dentist office means nothing.

      There is actually mini-storage and some other businesses before you get to the apartments so they are not beside JHR

    Accidental shooting at 4:15am??? LMAO very doubtful... I am sure the parties involved may say it was accidental to cover up a drug deal gone wrong... Who is up at 4:15 am with a gun anyways? Police need to wake up and stop believing these ridiculous stories!
