Maurice Miller

I have known this young man since he was in middle school. He is a bright, friendly young man who made a mistake. Whether or not he actually committed the crime, there are only a a few who know for sure, all the rest of us can do is speculate. I don't understand why there had been so much bloodshed over the past few years in downtown Wilmington, but it is disturbing. A lot of it has to do with "gangs" and people who lack direction. Maurice, however, always seemeed to me to be a young man who possessed a wealth of motivation and talent. It is very sad that he will spend the rest of his life behind bars, especially if he is in fact innocent. My heart goes out to him and his family. I believe that there needs to be a conscious effort to reach out to the lower socioeconomic children in our community, especially downtown Wilmington, to prevent this type of thing before it starts. I know too many other young people who are behind bars or are no longer with us for foolish reasons. A
