  • Follow Crime & courts

A 29-year-old Thomson man has confessed to weekend robberies and slayings in Georgia and North Carolina, officials say.

Cedric Theodis "Scooter" Hobbs admitted to the crimes Monday under questioning by North Carolina authorities , McDuf­fie County sheriff's Investigator Al Reeves said Tues­day.

Hobbs, a construction worker, is accused of robbing and shooting Rondriako "Ron" Burnett, 22, who is McDuffie County's first homicide victim of 2010.

Burnett's body was discovered about noon Saturday in a ditch off the dirt portion of Dearing Acres Road.

Police say the same gun used in that shooting was later used in the robbery and slaying Saturday of a 19-year-old pawn shop clerk in Fayetteville, N.C.

Institutionalized, legalized

Institutionalized, legalized devaluation of life has helped form the last two generations of American children, and that have learned their lessons well. Life is not valuable or worth protecting when it comes to envying someone else's possessions or when someone becomes inconvenient.

They can tie Scooter and that

They can tie Scooter and that Bamberg County thug who killed that Olar store clerk together and fry both of them. Now these thugs will be housed, fed, and taken care of at taxpayer's expense the rest of their lives. They basically have it made for the next few years thanks to the bleeding hearts of the land.
