    Look at these mug shots? How could these fine upstanding citizens be involved in this? Its their way of life. Its their culture. What else can be said. Its everyday news around here. Wouldn't be nice just for one week to not hear of any homocides in northeast NC? Think about it>? But we all know, Saturday nights a coming....How come these idiots couldn't be working and holding down a job like the rest of us?

    It is a shame that a good hard working man like Thomas Earl had to lost his life for no reason at all. He will be greatly missed. I just hope these to criminals get what they deserve...the death penalty!! 20 years for a life sentence is not long enough, especially when the family has to suffer everyday with the lost of Thomas Earl.

    WITN, is there a reason why the comment I submitted over 3 hours ago has not been posted? I'm resending it again, just in case you all missed it the first time. None of your rules have been violated, so I would like to know why this was not posted the first time I submitted? Anyways, please read my response from this morning as stated below: The same problems that the people in this world never want to address continue to happen. It says a lot when 7 out of 10 stories of crime are from the african american race. WITN is going to post any story of crime, whether it is by an african american, caucasian, or any other race, so this is not playing favorites to the folks that choose to kill or not follow the law. I am speaking the truth based on what you all are reporting, and I don't think you are lying about these stories, right? The fact that the younger generation continues to use violence of any fashion, but also kill another human being, is absolutely disturbing. My only determination on this is that these children want no responsibility in life and feel that prison time is owed to them. Roof over their head, free food and medical/dental care, and the opportunity to get an education. Those benefits are better than what a quarter of the people in this world, so it is win win for these killers. All I can say is that God knows what to do with these two, and he will do so.

      Have you actually kept a verifiable record that supports the "7 out of 10" claim, or does it just seem that way to you? I've noticed that many people comment about race whenever suspects are black, but those same commentors are absent from postings when there are white suspects. Regardless, there may well be a disproportionate amount of crime in the black community, but there are many factors besides just skin color to explain it.

          Actually according to the FBI it's 84% of the crime is committed the populace that makes up only 13% of the population. Not a quote but pretty close.

    And yet again, mug shots already on file.

    The day will come when you WILL stand before God on judgement day to give an account for murder. Do you not fear God enough to walk in His Ways? You may be able to run from the law,but you can't run from God. You MUST turn and repent,before it's too late for you.Heaven is real and hell is real.What's done is done,but you must make things right.
