One man stands 5 feet 10 inches tall and has a medium build. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The second man stands about 6 feet tall or slightly taller and has a slender build. He was wearing a dark, short-sleeve shirt over a lighter-colored shirt or sweatshirt and jeans.

    Back in late 2010 Food Lion decided to switch to cut rate security guards, since then, their security and safety has gone downhill.

    Minimum wage security guards are worth exactly what you pay for.

    hmm, a burgundy Grand Prix GT 4dr with Chrome 16" wheels, approximately a 97-2000 model. Shouldn't be too hard to find since a majority of these are no longer on the roads.

    Why did it take so long to be reported?

    "When you accuse someone of having a "50's attitude towards blacks", i'm pretty sure you're accusing them of having racial undertones towards an entire race of people." JVoodoo

    Not only starts the fight, but can't remember it 40 minutes later!

    When you accuse someone of having a "50's attitude towards blacks", i'm pretty sure you're accusing them of having racial undertones towards an entire race of people. Basically, you got called out on it and you went into defense mode. You can cry to mommy and point fingers and say "he started" all you want, but fact is, readme was just posting in here like everybody else, and you didn't like what he said. Get over it.

    Translation: You can’t find the data that supports your claim.

    BTW, I just searched google and found a site that says 137 percent of your ‘statistics’ are completely fictional. Go to www.google.com and see for yourself ;)

    Woohoo, it doesn't seem like you can stay focused enough to really talk much on this subject. Maybe stick your head back in the sand & pretend all is well with the world!

    I love it when people reference statistics, without linking to the source of said statistics.-tarheel4life

    You mean “everybody knows,” “it’s common knowledge,” “look it up for yourself” etc don’t count as statistics / evidence / proof? Who would have thunk it!!!
