    looks like more of Durhams's finest!, glad they took thier crime to another town, there is nothing left in Durham to steal. Even jail birds can't find work!
    Open up the cell block, got some more free riders on the way !!, more tax dollars supporting worthless pieces of human trash.
    Still say we need a island to dump these people on and then let them figure out how to survive,, because that is what the rest of us are doing, trying to find a way to survive "The Legal WAY".

    We just had a murderer die at age 90 in the NC prison system. We have at least one bed open. Put these guys in jail for a long time and let them figure life out in the "can."
