      Thank you, a man's accomplishments is measured by his ability to do his job not the color of his skin. Chief Anderson gets a F for results. The trade wilco thing is kind of funny I doubt there's cop at every station, but if there is that explains part of problem. Put the cops on the street let them do their job and lets get them someone who will back them up. Plain and simple let the police do their job and crime drops. Hopefully, the denisens go back to whence they came. Status quo is unacceptable. Sacking the chief would restore confindence of the cops and the public.

    Good to all the LEOs who are helping to clean this trash off our streets. I still say if these kids parents had tore there tails more often they wouldn't be in our judicial system now. The parents should be arrested too.

      Agreed, these guys are armed to the teeth and realy don't care about legality or the norms of scoiety. Its about the bling, the rep and that gang thang. No room for law and order in these folks lives. The feds need to use the RICO laws the same way the used them to break up the mob. Oganized crime is orangized crime be it a gang, a "crime family" or just a bunch of thugs creating mayhem. Strong police presence, stiff sentences and getting to the leaders is the answer. Until the police realize this, self defense is must. It's defintely looking gtroit and if things don't improve it will become an area where regular folks won't come, not for school, not for work, not for shopping. At that point greenville will really be like detroit a dying city wiht a crimne problem that just can't be stopped. We're not there yet but we are getting close.

    Concealed Cary and castle law should thin the criminal element numbers some.

    7 down, but many more to go. Bail needs to to be high. Trials need to swift and fair. Sentences need to be stiff for guilty. Build more jails or send them to GITMO doesn't really matter as long as they are off the streets. The message needs to be thungs get out of Pitt County and stay out.

      There also needs to be punishment for the parents who fail to keep an eye on their minor children and let them join gangs.

    None of the arrest were gang related, these were outstanding warrants according to the news report. Any body can serve warrants and call it gang enforcemnt.

    This is the "Pitt County Gang Task Force" but no one from the Pitt County Sheriff Office was assigned to assist with the roundup? Thats pathetic. Pitt County needs a more proactive Sheriff. There is more ways to fight crime than to park a patrol car in empty fields around the county.

      I believe if you followed the reports on the Pitt County Gang Task Force, someone from the Sheriff's Office is assigned to the task force. This is not a full time assignment from any agency, there were a number of other agencies in Pitt County that were not named as participants but they also have officers involved.

    Recently, I dreamed that several guys I had "squealed" on, showed up at my house, busted down the door and tortured me. They had all been released on bond one day after they were arrested. I woke up before they killed me.
