    He did it for whatever reason, to feed his dying kid or maybe support his drug addiction, it doesn’t matter he did it. White, black, brown, yellow, purple it doesn’t matter a crime is a crime. If u believe every black man is a thug, every white man is rich, every brown man is a border hopper, I’m sorry to say your views on reality are skewed. All it means is you are either racist or prejudice. When and if he is caught a jury will decide his fate and your hateful comments won’t change it.

    Any chance this is the same guy that robbed the Walmart in Washington?

    Ol' Roy doesn't get a pass. It might seem that way from the black man's perspective, but rest assured...we "good ol' white folk" want to see this guy get the book thrown at him just as much as any black criminal. It's the frequency that blacks do it that makes it seem like the system is being unfair.

    This is my third time trying to get my post, posted. What gives? What you said it all in your second sentence, everyday there is a story about a black man this, and a black man that, etd. You are correct with saying this white dude is the scum. It is a rare occasion that we get a chance to read about a white man robbing or killing. But an everyday occurrence story after story about black crime. That is why you get so many comments on the black crime, people are so sick of reading it, seeing it, and living it. You have to be responsible for your own actions and stop blaming the white man for your way of thinking and living.

    You're right on about this white lowlife scum.....I agree 100%. It's not often you get to say those things about a white guy is it? More often than not it's a black guy....wonder why???

    I hope it was worth it. We all know where he is going to be headed now. Good luck finding a job with a record in this economy.

    Lets see "T" Democrats have been in charge of Congress for the past 4 years, and the state Legislature for over 100 years. Republicans have been in office what? a week now? lol...I think you're the one with no perspective....

    You people, you people. ENC "salt of the earth" folks are rediculous. Everyday there is a story about some black man this, black man that, etc. But you let Ol' Roy here get a pass!! There would normally be about 50 comments already posted talking about Thugs this, hang em, lock them away and throw away the key. But as I predicted before I read the comments, I said "Now watch someone mention something about how times are hard, unemployment is driving folks to resort to this and that. Blah blah blah." Funny how "you people" are so contradictive when the criminal is a non-minority. Wheres all the welfare, food stamps, public housing, etc. comments now? Well I'll set it off. He's trailer trash, meth using, disability check getting, lying, cheating, and stealing low life hick scum!! He's already getting my hard earned tax dollars in his disability check. I guess that wasnt good enough to support his habit. He had to rob someone. I hope they lock his @#% up and melt the key. That felt good!
