Whats so shocking about it? What did you expect after they turning this place into the hispanic, illegal immigrants, deadbeat, good for nothing shithole that this place has become. Thanks carolina turkeys, thanks house of raeford and a special thanks to murphy-brown or whatever they are called now. They all got this scum here to take our jobs and work for nothing and freeload off our asses so let them deal with it now. Agri- business is the ruin of Duplin County, along with a sheriffs dept that can be paid to let the real dealers off. Not to mention a few worthless ass county commissioners that are slumlords and setting up slummy trailor parks to make money off this scum. Just roll your window down when u are passing through duplin county. Nothing but good old hog shit is what u will smell.

folk ain't got no money or they caught up in the warfare system and they"do what they think they have to do" but this is only a trap to get the one who don't have any money landed in the jail and the ones who they do catch with the money they have to give it up and turn snitches for the county and railroad others up.. I'm not advocating anything illegal.. but 2 wrong don't make a right and you never break the cycle of this willie lynch syndrome.... 80 percent who in the game probably can't get a good decent job because they have a crimal record... again.. not trying to justify what they are doing... but whats a man or woman to do when they have paid their debt to society, get out and can't find a job or get one making decent pay.. not to mention their probably owing arrears.... no chance of outrunning this plague that trys to keep them ensneared at the bottom of the barrel..
and lastly.. to the slick one... who on the boards..... serving in churches..... magistrates of the county..... big time farmers... and under cover workaholics... if the cover isn't snatched back off you in this life.. it more certainly will be in the next..
i personally got absolutly no kind of respect for any of you people, but it seem you never get caught.. almost like you got a crystal ball or something.... but we all know there is no such thing as a crystal ball....
if there wasn't any drug bust they would probally have to lay half the county off because there wouldn't be any need for them.. but as long as the mess is running rampant they will alway have a need for the force.. so.. if people would really get focus and leave drugs alone period and start fooling around with all these nasty ass crack/ weed hoes and leave some of these devil run churches.. duplin would be a more attractive place to vist overall and the atmosphere would naturally be radiant with more kindness and compassion instead of the garbage, uncomitedness and self-absorb buffoonery you encounter now.... we as a people.. nor race.. have to put our little differences aside and take control of our community instead of leaving in the hands of the law... the problem is we've given up on people and that needs to change... last word.. now to those reading this i didn't want to you think i was all together stupid.. cause there are some who do belong behind bar cause they can't control themselves or have lost the ability to distinguish between right and wrong.... they need rehabilitation... but locking up everyone is not the answer and it reinforces the path for martial law in the land...
good credit during martial law don't mean nothing you have no more rights than a prisoner in jail now..

My brother was murdered one week ago today.Drugs and prostitution are about to take over this small town. The problem is bigger than the small user. Drug addiction CAN happen to anyone. It is available in the schools, but the big problem is the suppliers. I just wish with all my heart and all my soul that I had my brother back. I don't want another family to go through this living hell. And as for the comment for the one who identified as Duplin Sucks-don;t eat anymore chicken, pork, or turkey.Maybe you'll make a difference. There are a lot of good, honest people in the agriculture business and I happen to be one of them.

I wouldn't prop-up agriculture. Ag's what made Duplin what it is - other than that, hurray for ag.

My thinking on drugs has wavered to the other side where I'm thinking that legalizing drugs would do more good than the so-called "War" on it. Seems the last few presidents have gotten through this "War" without getting scratched-up while others wind up in jail, or worse. It seems to me that if drugs were as comnon as packs of chewing gum, there'd be just as few injuries and deaths due to drugs.

Otherwise, sorry to hear of your brother's passing.

If drugs were legalized that would only mean you would not be breaking the law by BUYING them and using them. Emphasis on the word buy. Drugs that have the ability to alter your brain and cause such intense cravings will not allow you to rationalize between paying the light bill and getting the next fix. If you legalize drugs then the next thing will be to legalize prostitution. Also, after you have legalized the those two, we are going to need more state funding for rehabilitation programs for people who cannot afford it because they either don't have a job with insurance or they can't afford the insurance premiums because of paying for their habit.

I hate DRUGS!Unless you have ever had someone you cared about with an addiction, then you really can't completely understand.

I have enjoyed reading your comments though. I still think this is a great country and as I said earlier I appreciate freedom of press.

I saw on the news today that 1/3rd of Marine recruits get in on a drug waiver. If drug use is that prevalent, I don't think it's the cause of everything.

I don't do the drugs, so I'm not the best person to think about them. I'm actually confused, somebody should ask the president about it, or anybody else that's never been "caught" doing drugs - because we know the ones who do get caught are bad people (unless they're in the Marines).

The ones getting caught aren't the "bad" people.

GREED is what makes people bad. Therefore, as far I am concerned the bad people are the ones dealing drugs. Anything for a dollar. Even ruined lives.

But greed isn't just found in drug dealers. We pay athletes and movie stars exuberant salaries and then we have homeless people and hungry children. I do love my country, but there are a lot of things that could be better.
