Authorities arrested two men Thursday suspected of robbing at gunpoint three people during a home invasion this week in Evans.

Finas Aaron Goodwin III, 17, and Scott LaMont Farley Jr., 18, both of Evans, were charged with armed robbery. Farley, who lived in the same Westwood Club apartment complex as the victims, also was charged with two more counts of armed robbery, three counts of possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a crime and a count of burglary.

Two men in their early 20s and a 19-year-old woman told Columbia County sheriff’s deputies that two men forced their way into their home about 3 p.m. Tuesday on the 200 block of Lariat Circle.

All three were forced to lie on the floor while the robbers took cellphones, an iPad, an X-Box and cash. Then, they ran from the home, according to a sheriff’s office report.

Goodwin and Farley are being held in the Columbia County Detention Center with no bond set.

SB4, Reminder, you have more

SB4, Reminder, you have more Good Ole Boys getting government assistance than the Gimmi-gimmie group. "Despite prevailing stereotype, Whites, not Blacks, collect greatest share of public aid dollars"

That tale has been vented

That tale has been vented B4.....in ratio of population you will see the difference....anyway....did I say anywhere what color ??

I don't care what color they are...I don't want to pay for house-car-tv-babies-nailjobs-ringsin nose--sagging pants--etc.

the only deserving would be elderly-disabled & kids w/o family .

I assume the Good Ole Boy

I assume the Good Ole Boy could only mean one color. And before you go thinking that only certain groups get government assistance, check out the following URL. There are plenty of well to do folks that have and continue to benefit from government assistance programs. The welfare group is at the bottom of the list: http://www.good.is/post/half-of-americans-getting-government-aid-swear-t...

ok runningman. the main point

ok runningman. the main point that i believe is being made isnt whether or not people are being talked down to or who is privelidged or not. the point is that these two individuals invaded a home with weapons to get something for themselves. instead of working or getting a higher education they choose to endanger others and take what they worked for. it doesnt matter where you come from or what kind of background you have its the choices you make. government assistance is irrelevant. race is irrelevent. gender is irrelevant. all that matters is what you do with your life.

I agree, however too many on

I agree, however too many on here simply are willing to trash those living in low income housing as involved in crime, drugs, etc., and all are on government assistance programs, etc. Far from the truth on both counts. An my other point is there are many folks living in big houses committing crimes and receiving government assistance as well. So stop blaming everyone in low income housing for all of the issues.

Speaking of uninformed (or is

Speaking of uninformed (or is it just plain ol' manipulation of statistics again), before runningman starts writes about race in regard to how many blacks commit crimes compared to how many whites commit crimes in the U.S., he should keep in mind that there are a LOT more whites than blacks U.S., so the more appropriate comparison would be to compare what % of whites commits crime compared to what % of blacks if he is going to bring race into the matter. I suspect the % of whites committing crimes is lower than blacks for a host of reasons that there are probably thousands of studies about. Runningman is the one that brought race up in this matter, so I thought that should be clarified. Anyone have some credible statistics on that?

"There are plenty of well to do folks that have and continue to benefit from government assistance programs."

Funny that you and the authors of that article believe that ALLOWING me to keep more of what I EARNED is government "assistance". What a convoluted thought process....
