    someone else said it best in a similar post on a similar story a few months ago. The way to clean up kinston is to dump a 20 lb crack rock and a 20 lb meth rock in kinston but make sure its a cyanide / drug combo. The druggies would die, the loss of customers would shut down the dealers and people would feel safe MAYBE to walk the streets of Kinston. Support the cops folks in whatever way you can, and when you are aware of drug / criminal activity in your hood, make the phone call that can help stop it and tell the police.

    that crazy. Kinston needs to be cleaned up. I am so tired of all the trash in kinston. THE police need to keep these low lifes off our streets before then end up killing one of our children.

    The world would be better off if some people had not been born. Useless People. Shoot anyone for no reason at all and never get punished. Kinston and Greenville both are turning into sewers. The two girls that were shot the other night were shot for no reason at all. People that cannot live like humans should not live at all.

      you are right, thats probably the best post ive seen. im thinking instead of exterminating these rogue humanoids, we should set them free in the middle of a desert, or maybe a siberian forest and let them live like the animals they are.

    Kinston IS a sewer...I live in it. This shooting occured within 2 blocks of where I live. This area used to be...used to be...a great middle class neighborhood which I grew up in. Now the trash is blowing in from who knows where. Really a shame. About 30 days ago thugs came in my yard in the dead of night and stole the motor from my boat. Reported it...of course...never heard anything from the cops. Pretty bad - too bad I didn't see 'em in the process of taking it.

        Maybe, but GPD did respond and they so called victims were taken to the ED. Obviously, the shooters need some lessons on shooting.

    Sounds like Kinston is a sewer. They better stop worrying about offendng certain populations and start cracking down all those dirt bags. How many murders this year? Including the murder of a law enforcement officer.
