Police increase security at high school football game

READ MORE:
COLUMBUS COUNTY -- For the past week Whiteville High School has been on high alert after rumors of gun violence in school. Friday night they're carrying the extra security over into the football game. The rumors of gun violence came after a murder last Friday in Lake Waccamaw after the Whiteville at East Columbus football game. Twenty-two-year-old Darnell Frink was killed and two others were shot in the legs. No incidents have occurred at school this week, but officials want to be sure nothing happens at tonight's game. Whiteville Police Department Agent Chris Dudley said, "We have requested 18 additional officers from the chief because of the gang violence after the shooting last week in Lake Waccamaw. There will be metal detectors and we are checking anyone that walks in." Whiteville won last week's game against East Columbus. Pender High and Whiteville aren't as big of rivals, so officials don't expect problems.

be a parent

Will they have a thug coat/gun check stand? Maybe if parents start to act like parents and control their children we might be able to get the next generation to behave like they have some sense.

That is the problem today,

That is the problem today, parents don't want to take the time to teach and control their children. Kids today don't know how to mind and behave their selves.
