I believe the reference is

I believe the reference is that the crime is now spreading into what was once nice neighborhoods due to section 8 and other discount apartment complexes, not just public housing anymore!! I agree with it!!!

Gun up, people. When the

Gun up, people. When the economy collapses and we are no longer able to feed those who do not work, this will be a daily event. The criminal element will be comming for you, and there won't be enough police to help you. The quicker that you get your hands on a weapon and learn to use it the better. President-elect Obama and his cohort Vice-President elect Biden DO NOT want you to have one, and will ensure that their rubberstamp congress pass laws which will effectively prevent the private ownership of weapons.

Let's say this, I rode by the

Let's say this, I rode by the bank about 6;30PM and the police were investigating the situation...squad cars, many people on the premises investigating the crime and interviewing same , blocks into the Wachovia entry way, and the newspaper reported limited info at 6:10PM. Come on folks, they didn't have all the facts at 6:10PM and did let you know that there was a crime....you will hear the rest of the story tomorrow.

If he could have waited a few more weeks, he could have cashed in on Obama's share the wealth plan.

Glossary: ||"Semi-automatic

Glossary:
||"Semi-automatic handgun" - compound noun - News-media-speak for "pistol", used to extract maximum semantic effect to drive fear. Often used when no actual weapon is present due to witness limitations. Easily and often countered by alert, armed citizen, which is not found in area where said citizen is considered equivalent to serial child murderer by "polite" society.

||"Detainee" - noun - Media-speak, again, this time to describe woefully misunderstood upstanding citizen apprehended by out-of-control military, police or paramilitary forces. Replaces the hopelessly outdated, primitive, pejorative and slanderous term, "prisoner".

|| Even though economic news is driven by sensationalists making a buck off your fear, you should think about what and why the media tells you things in certain ways. Get a week-old paper and see who was right.

I'm sorry this reporting just did not give us any info on the armed bank robber. Come on Jenna Martin you can do better than that. Maybe you can do better on the next one, I'm sure there will be plenty more.

We're not mean, just ticked off beyond reason that people and the media find it necessary to justify and/or glorify crime.

I rode by the bank at 8 and

I rode by the bank at 8 and the police were still there and to the person that said something about people on Section 8 I am a single mom struggling to make ends meet,my ex husband pays child support at his convenience and I am on Section 8 my point here is not everyone on Section 8 is a low life who doesnt work I do work but without the housing assistance I could not live in a dectent home. I know that a lot of low life people are on housing and because of a few bad seeds have given people the wrong idea about section 8

TruckinRanger, you are right

TruckinRanger, you are right about Columbia County....they could care less who the robber is or what color he is they want him arrested and if he even slighlty defies the police, they would have the full support of the entire community if it was necessary for them to shoot the suspect. Criminals come in all colors as do violent criminals who are low life scum that certainly deserve any harm they receive for their unwarrnated actions. Rest assured Columbia County will put additional men on this and make an arrest ASAP to keep thugs and criminals out of their community and Richmond County should do the same. Yes, it is much more difficult in Richmond County due to demographics, being short 50 deputies, and an unsupportative county commission as well as some citizens but it is possible. Stop letting youth and others get by with "the small stuff" and it is less likely they will progress into "the violent stuff".
