sending the jobs over seas

maybe he should get a pass port if he wants to continue in this line of work.With the cost of living going up and no student loans, what do you expect? All the good jobs have been sent overseas,by out congressman and senators. They say government can't create jobs. they sure can send them a way.

Build a fence around his

Build a fence around his neighborhood and keep this criminal away from our upstanding citizens. I agree crime has no color, but some of the backwards citizens in Wilmington make it about race. Compare the comments of this article to the other articles involving black people. Some of them are not only racist but evil. I don't condone crime at all but I do understand that when you are young and do not have positive influences you make dumb mistakes. Even with positive influences young people do dumb things. It is just sad that people who are supposed to be more intelligent than these criminals end up looking just as stupid! White people are not better than any other race and vice versa! Racisim has blinded alot of people!!!

young people have NO direction

There are NO jobs for these young people,..parents DON'T give a darn,they are to busy trying to bring in an income...There isnt any kind of Tech School IN our schools with programs like plumbIng,carpentry etc. to teach kids a trade,unless you go to Miller Motte. Many parents cant afford to send them there. Our schools are beautifully built,but CANT give an education.These young people have no direction....

I know

Hmmm.. He's probably with the occupy wilmington rejects...

Hit him with a drumstick!

The employees should have beat this lazy boy over the head with some drumsticks and pointed to the sign in the lobby... Bo jangles is hiring all positions. He look like he healthy enough to run a fryer.

Not smart enough

Anybody that thinks robbery is a smart, easy way to make money isn't smart enough to operate the fryer. What a lowlife piece of trash he is.

What? someone white committing crime?

I'm sure the comments on here would be that Mommy and Daddy brought him up in a great family home but he just got off the wrong path..or maybe he had a traumatic experience in his childhood that set off this bizarre behavior..or maybe his college friends will get on here and say how polite he was and they had no idea..yeah, come on white people and show your love for your white criminal since you love to blast black people for all the crime in wilmington..


Okay well first let me say this u are a raciest. and i did go to school with this dude, and let me tell u, he was a trouble maker in school, and seems to be now. not all white ppl blast on blacks. everyone does wrong., WHITES,MEXICANS,BLACKS. it not about the up bringing its all about being with the wrong crowds.hes always been with the wrong crowd. yes he did have a good, life all ur parents are supposed todo is give u life, its up to u todo something with it. so NOONE can sit here and say oh well i had a bad childhood. no fool, u chose this path, u made ur bed hard lay in it. but AGAIN ITS NOT JUST WHITES GETTING IN TROUBLE. PPL MAKE STUPID AND DUMB ASS MISTAKES AND THEY PAY FOR IT. just like this idiot. really a fast food resturant? he musta been hungry and im pretty sure what he got out of the register is not worth sitting in jail with a 16k dollar bond im pretty sure he didnt even get 16k to pay his bond with ppl never think........


Can you say Racist? you don't have to be white to be a racist, thank you for proving that point.

Why does everyone have to

Why does everyone have to label things white or black. People can not get off the white and black issue. Crime comes in all colors!!


When you're the victim of the behavior, it's Black and White; when you're the perpetrator, there are a million shades of Gray.

Worthless trash comes in all colors

Yours are crackheads, ours are meth freaks. (Look at those ZITS!)

Regardless of their color, they all need to be in prison for a LONG time.

Thats Racist Wanda!!

Thats Racist Wanda!!

at crime has no color

Actually it is scientifically proven that white collar crime committed by mostly white males cost individuals and businesses more annually than petty crimes committed by other races combined .


"Mommy and Daddy brought him up in a great family home but he just got off the wrong path" Uhm shouldn't it be that he got on the wrong path? I mean if he got off the wrong path wouldn't that be a good thing stupid?

That is a very ignorant

That is a very ignorant thing to say. Why not look at the bigger picture. people commit crimes because something is not right in their life. Do you actually think the majority of people want to rob someone and spend time in jail. For some it is a sickness, for some they do not know any better. And for most look at our economy, people need help...


People like you make people like him feel like its okay to do what he did! Stop taking up for the bum! i kno him and in his case your soooo wrong!

What an idiotic and ignorant

What an idiotic and ignorant thing to say...sounds to me like you may be just a tad bit prejudiced yourself. It will never go away as long as there are people like you that rant ignorance.
