    This has gotten to be a regular thing in Goldsboro. Couple of years ago the"HONORABLE REV. BARBER" started the "STOP THE FUNERAL" movement in Goldsboro to address this ongoing problem. But, after having his moment at the mic, he has moved onto other "issues". More important things such has voter ID., driving license for illegals,being more important than someone's life, I guess. Don't blame the GPD for this,go back to his raisings,that where it starts at...."HOME". If he had been "HOME" at midnight in bed, this would not have happened.

    Guy just got out of jail recently and been given many chances to change. Seems like he was the terror to the neighborhood he had no reason being at. Has a good list of offenses.

    That is one high crime spot stuck in a corner. Basically one way in and one way out. You all really don't think its the police job to clean up the neighborhood? They are just keepers of the peace. Its the community that is suppose to clean up the bad apples. Don't care what anybody says if this guy did some things in his past and did not change then it was something that was waiting for him. Goldsboro has been like this for years and has not changed. Only difference is that this crowd of has moved out into the county also and spread out. When the police come and ask questions nobody seen anything. Blame the code not the police. If you allow terror then there will be terror and then some.

    @tres1p and lurwhljr..... Where is this information coming from?

  • tres1p Jan 24, 2013

    To think, if this person layed outside and dies because the police would not respond, this makes them just a guilty as the one who pulled the trigger...SMH

    This is the same neighborhood that the small child was gunned down a few years ago. What has happened to Goldsboro? I happened to know this kid and his family. Yes, he did some things. I also happen to know the kid that found him on the way to the bus stop. His mom said they called police thoughout the night and the police did nothing. Come on people! These boys where shooting at each other all night long at the terror of the public. Why isn't more being done in this section of Goldsboro? I pray for Shabazz's family and the family of the little boy that found him outside his home this morning.
