Police say the men got away with a large amount of cash and ran out the back of the store near Memorial Drive and West Firetower Road.

    Take the concealed handgun class, get your CHG permit, a gun, and carry it. If at least 50% of citizens were legally carrying, and a few would-be robbers got popped, it would have more effect on the crime rate than any amount of police. Exercise your rights before you lose (any more of) them, folks.

    Ridiculous!! It's something everyday! Yeah crime happens everywhere, but Greenville isn't big enough for crimes like this to happen every single day!

    One more reason YOU need a CHG Permit and a gun.

    This is terrible. I hope everyone is okay. I usually don't post but this happened at our store and everyone was afraid for awhile. The president has nothing to do with some convict robbing a store. I hope they catch him.

    You all have it right! First- City Manager Bowers needs to step down, and then Police "Chief" Anderson. If they do not, Joyner, Kittrell, Dunn, and others must GO! Enough is enough.

    There's no crime in Greenville/Winterville. You don't know the whole story. These are good kids. They're victims. Come on - give them a break - how else are they going to pay their child support.

    Maybe the Mayor of Greenville should call the President and get the Special Op Forces in g'ville, to get rid of all the Thugs, cause the place is going to the low life kind who just want to rob and steal and not get a REAL JOB!!!
