"I have waited all week to see if anyone reported the melee that broke out at the carnival last Saturday night 5/5/07. Imagine taking you kids out for a night of fun at the carnival and instead thugs fighting and shooting randomly, so much that people were running and ducking in the mall, under tables at Garfield's anywhere they could hide. Shots fired in the mall and surrounding area but no report makes it to our local media."
"Well, I for one can understand how this can happen. Greenville finest are to busy hassling the Restaurant and Nightclub owners around town. I personally saw the Ass. Chief six times Wednesday night, four times Friday night and several times Saturday night policing the "Entertainment District" Why????? Because it is easier and safer than doing real police work. He walks around cursing people and acting arrogant while Greenville literally burns on his shift. Wise up city leaders. Put someone in charge that really wants to take a bite out of crime instead of a pompous ass with a chip on his shoulder. To get respect you must be willing to give it!!"
"Thugs ruined the multi-million dollar car show. What do you expect? I'll tell you what we need...LEADERSHIP."
