    wow this is really sad. All this crime all the time. This is a very scary place to live. I feel uneasy in almost every location in Greenville. I agree with most of you who say "the cops are too busy downtown with the college kids" when there are shootings, stabbings and robberies in town every other day.

    We need webcams in the Kangaroo parking lot, the two Sonic Drive Inns and a few other choice places in Greenville.

    The police have no duty or legal obligation to protect individual citizens. When will people wake up and realize that their personal safety is a PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY? When will night-shift employees grow a spine and get some training, a firearm, and a concealed carry permit, and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for their own safety? When will the People stand up and take responsibility for maintaining the peace and safety of their own community? When will We the People grow our spines back, and stop bowing down before these thugs, criminals and sociopaths that prey on our communities?

    Why does it appear that the perpetrators are smarter than the Greenville police?

    I'm confused. What kind of case was stolen?

    Wholesale gas prices are going down but not in Greenville. It seems like I get robbed everytime I fill up in Pitt County

      No that is not the Kangaroo station. The Kangaroo station is down farther down 14th street.
