    This is nuts....plenty of MURDERERS get 5-10-15 years...THEY SHOULD GET 40 years and violent assaults get off with with next to nothing. VIOLENCE IS WORSE THAN DRUGS IDIOT LEGAL SYSTEM!

    Exactly.....I couldn't have said it better. The working class does not have the money, the means or the power to bring drugs into the country. The government and justice system has been corrupt for as long as they have been in existence and it's not likely to change.

    i knew him better than anybody he was very good guy and he love his kids very much. my thing is how can they give somebody 40 years based off his record and what people said he did. they have very poor evidence in this case.just think about when you killed somebody you dont even get 40 years you get at least 2 years. so dont try to make him a bad person if you really dont know him. i think they should take this case back to court because it was very very poor evidence

    If you "Knew him" and didn't turn him in to the Police for his drug dealing ways, you are just as bad if not worse than him, and should be charged accordingly.

    this comment is too all people who dont know him. that guy was not even a bad guy, i dont care what his record says i knew him personally and he helped his community and they gave him 40 years and did not get one drug off his person. if people would do their time instead of tell everything they think they know he would be a free man and a great father to his kids unlike most men. maybe if people tell on a murderer life would be safer but a drug dealer is not killing anyone nomore than tobacco and alcohol. he was a good man not a murderer!!!!

      So you knew him and he was a good guy. Well let me tell you about a good guy. My grandfather was a good guy who took care of his kids. He did not finish high school but at the time went to the Navy had an honorable discharge from there got a job worked until he retired, went back to work and got a partial retirement from there (never sold drugs). My grandmother never had to work the entire time they were married (only had 1 wife). Beyond that took care and raised most of his grandchildren. Now what did this man do so great. Riddle me that.

    i think someone needs to investigate north carolina judicial system because from my understanding other states dont give this much time for this type of crime its ridiculous when NC is trying to cut jobs for education why not have these non-violent criminals voluteer and clean streets, renovating abandon, and clean abandon buildings,. And for the churches yes you all do need to be more involve with the communities, oh i forgot all you all want is money and attention when the preachers drive up with the luxury cars. yea i said and i am a white woman with a black husband with five children. Stop the bickeriing an get off your @## and do something positive about the situations here in greenville give these young children a chance at a job or something that can keep their minds steered in a positive direction.

      These convictions where not handed down from the North Carolina Judicial System they were convicted in Federal Court. Being convicted on the Federal level is a lot harsher than being convicted on the State level......

    Crack/cocaine makes good people do very bad things. So I agree. Give the dealers of this poison 40 years. execute the ones bringing it into the country(or who produces it).

      If you did execute the ones bringing it into the country there would only be a few border patrol, federal judges and law officials left. Do the math! How do you think this continues to be a problem?
  • by Really???? on Apr 5, 2011 at 09:05 AM
    The one that got the 40 years on drug charges had an "extensive" record. Guess the judge figured he hadn't learned his lesson. Guess you want to wait until he kills someone????

    It's amazing how these guys never see this part coming. It's just not worth it!
