    Only GOD can judge us, so with that being said lets keep in mind that no matter what one HAS done NO ONE deserves to die at the hands of another being. You never know what a person is trying to do about changing themselves. Everybody has done something stupid or made a bad decision. Looks like to me Darrel's only bad decision was getting in the wrong car. Don't sleep this could have happened to you too. So remember ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE, this man has a family just like you do.

    "Based on the latest statistics found online, Goldsboro has a higher than average crime rate."

    Goldsboro has areas that you shouldn't go through if you want to remain safe. However, it is a nice town in other areas. I wish someone would step up and solve some problems there before they get any worse!

    That is what is frightening driving your car today because you don't know who and why that strange person that just pulled up along side of you may be planning to do.

    Did you unintentionally cut in front of them, perhaps they just don't like the way you look, could it be racial, robbery or a gang initiation?

    One never knows what is out there driving around with a chip on their shoulder.

    This is why it's best to be the driver, just an ear injury.
