    Jarfaris, you seem much like our president in that you are more concerned that no one gets their feelings hurt rather than solving the problem and protecting the innocent. No I did graduate from RMT High or any public school for that matter.

    Not quite. It also seems like you don't either. Let's read here....

    "My comment was to explain why the police dept of Rocky Mount was involved, and won't be involved."

    Here you are trying to explain why RMPD IS involved and WILL NOT be involved. How can you be both? Have you been sipping the schnapps a little early today? No matter though. Just for fun, Let's take a peek at your last sentence.

    " Evidently, you're a graduated of Rocky Mount High School."

    My only questions here would be (1) How can I be a graduated from any school? Now I have graduated from a high school, but never have I been a graduated, from anywhere. And (2) Where pray tell, did you receive your education? I'm guessing that wherever school it was, didn't have English classes available.

    look Roscoe, you're the one with the reading problem. My comment was to explain why the police dept of Rocky Mount was involved, and won't be involved. You get it now? Evidently, you're a graduated of Rocky Mount High School.

    Maybe that is why all of these arrests, were performed by the Nash County Sheriff's Office. Let me explain to you how it all works. The Police Chief, is in charge of the Police Department. The Sheriff on the other hand, is in charge of the Nash County Sheriff's Office.

    Reading comprehension is a lost trait with some people.

    Way to go Sheriff Stone!

    I am glad you and your department are stepping up to get rid of this problem!

    Rocky Mount Police Chief said Rocky Mount would not participate because this would be Racial Profiling. Rocky Mount has a good relationship with gangs in their city and doesn't want to jeopardize that relationship.

    Per the Rocky Mount Police Chief, there is no drug problem in Rocky Mount!

    I wonder why the bond amounts are so different for people with the exact same charges.
