I know that this crime

I know that this crime couldn't happen in Porters Neck! Wal-Mart isn't there yet! So, I guess that Wal-Mart isn't going to bring the wrong kind of people to your part of town! They are already there!

Another Thug

Another Thug. A firing squad is what these a....... need.

Will someone please explain

Will someone please explain why photos of thieves are so awful in this day and age? My $300 Nikon camera takes perfect pictures every time, but banks and stores seem to use 29 cent toy cameras - the quality is simply awful.

dur hur, lets rob a bank

dur hur, lets rob a bank with no mask!! I bet I can get away with it!!

Looks like he posed for that

Looks like he posed for that one. Good thing is, these bozos don't have a clue they have cameras in banks. Stupidity will trip you up every time. This picture is so good they won't have to make another one when he goes to jail.

After 20 years is Wilmington

After 20 years is Wilmington we gave up on the area and drove the length of I-40 and have settled in rural California.

"have settled in rural California"

The meth-amphetamine capital of the U.S. Good luck with that.

careful using the word hoddie that could be Obamas baby


That's just great! I guess I'm going to have to move way out into the country and build a bunker to escape the crime. /sarcasm
