    But it's not music. It's poetry put to a beat. The music part is incidental or aside from the whole thing.

    Rap music is art, it has nothing to do with these crimes.

      Finger painting is more artistic than that neanderthal jibberish.

    It always seems to be between 5th and 1st streets. Where are the added patrols or police presence. This has been going on for a while in that small area. They come where the money is....rob the college students.

    To my cousin, I pray that everything is okay with you. It sad that people can't walk down the street or be out, no matter what time is it. This is a free country we should be able to do what we want as long it is nothing that harm another human being. I love you and take care.

    More evidence of Chief Anderson's lax policies. Go out on the street at 2 am in Kennesaw, Georgia and it is quiet and safe. Kennesaw passed an ordnance in the 80's requiring all adults not convicted of a felony or concientious objectors to be armed. This was the community response to Atlanta's crime problem moving into town.

      The government should not force people to do such things. I am a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, as well as the rest of the constitution and what that Georgia city did was beyond stupid. I would love for every law abiding citizen to own and carry a weapon, but they should have a choice as to whether or not they want to.

    This and all recent instances like this is a "call to arms" let the criminals get a surprise of their own. The only problem with the call to arms is the law will demonize the innocent and reward the true criminal. I'd still rather live!

    "Pitt County Named To List Of Best For Young People"....I made a comment on this recent story that was NOT posted. This "Man Robbed, Shot" story backs up what I said. I guess my opinion was valid and relevant...so that's why WITN decided not to post it.

      I would suggest you move to Kinston. Very little crime and the town subcribes to consrvative values.

        Kinston is more for "Adult" murders. The kids shoot each other in Greenvile.

    A good lesson not to be out at 2:00 a.m.

      There was a student sitting on his front porch smoking one night last week on 1st street. A guy came up, pistol whipped him, took his cloths, and drove him around to atm's to get money.
