It is our support system for

It is our support system for the mentally ill that needs attention here, not this sad, misunderstood man. Fleet suffers from schizophrenia. When he is medicated, he is intelligent and well mannered. He comes from a wonderful, caring family who gave him a great childhood and wonderful education. He is brilliant. Unfortunately, like most schizophrenics, the disease has taken control of his life. There probably is no logical reason he attacked Dr. McKeithan. Why not do a story about ALL of the mentally ill in southeastern NC who have no where to go because of budget cuts by our lawmakers.

Fleet does come from a good,

Fleet does come from a good, kind, nice family. He is actually a brilliant man, unfortunately he has mental health issues. Sadly, there is no means possible to step in and involuntarily make him comply with his treatment. Please don't be cruel just because you can, sitting anonymously behind a computer. Think before you type.


This story made me LOL :-)

When did they release Charles Manson?

Assault on college president

I`ve known Fleet for many years,and know he has mental problems.When off his medication,there`s no telling what he might do.He comes from a very fine family and I`am sure their saddened by this incident.Don`t judge one`s family until you`ve been in their shoes.

Why did this happen?

Did Mr. McKeithan know this "gentleman"?

Did "Norbert" just wake up, spoke with God, and look for a stranger to pop?

A few questions unanswered. And also a strange way to assault someone, a pile of papers.

Although he actually looks like the Captain of the reality series "Whale Wars". Could be his twin brother from different mothers.

Weird story.


Oops! Cancel Christmas.

That makes me sick! Dr

That makes me sick! Dr Mckeithan is one of the most dearest, sweetest man I've EVER had the pleasure of knowing and working with. I hope there are charges being pressed. What is wrong with people?

Former student of CFCC

See what happens..

...when you name your kid, Norfleet? He's been carrying that albatross around for all these years, and he takes it out on one of the nicest guys in the world.
