    When is it a good thing for someone to strap on a bullet proof vest, go into the street and empty a weapon into an innocent person? I would like to know exactly what you have in your head for brains (rocks). The good thing is "this thing" is behind bars where it belongs. We have enough illegal guns and drugs in our communities and neighborhoods; and the majority of the public is looking in the wrong direction and at the wrong people to blame. But, Rest assured....JUSTICE WILL be served.

    good thing there was a gun laying around. Otherwise it might have only been a fistfight.

    Small detail I realize but the picture of the Spring Lake City Police car really doesn't go with this Harnett County case....
