What many of you are not thinking about is the fact that there were many trees down on the back roads and power lines down all over the county. Power trucks and tree company trucks needed to be able to get down these roads and didn't need to have to manuver around cars. Also, with power out in so many places alarms and security systems were not working and there was an increased chance of looting. Would you want someone to break into your house and rob you blind just because you didn't have power and the police department didn't know there was a problem in your home? I work hard for everything I have and wouldn't want that to happen to me!

Looting?! Are you sure you live in King? Maybe as far as Stokes County goes, King is the "big city". But in reality, King is barely a truck stop.

Looting?! opec again says, shaking his head in confusion.(while snickering, too.)

Laugh all you want! I don't think that any of the store owners would be laughing if their store got broken into and they lost a lot of inventory. I guess that you could always put your address on here and let all of the drunk (or sober) thieves that live anywhere close come steal from you! Your choice!

I have been through many winters in my life with down trees and no power and have never been told that I had to be inside my house at a certain time.
Jail time. Sound like I am living in Iran instead of King, NC. WOW

I hear ya. They talk like they're in South Central or something. OMG! Lock everybody up so I can go home after closing my store. I guess no one can loot between 5am and 12 midnight; only during snow storms. LOL

What you are not thinking about is the big picture in all of this! Do you not realize what has just happened to your rights? Not just the rest of us who see this and know it is wrong but YOU, Yourself have just lost one of your constitutional rights! Does this not bother you? And do you really feel that unsafe in King? Do you even really live in King or have you ever been in King? Wake up you idiot! It is people like you who are willing to hand over every right we have just because someone else told you to be scared for their own agenda and you were not even smart enough to think for yourself! Oh my gosh I am so outraged at the whole thing and at every person out there that thinks like you do!

Actually, ask the business owners, most of them were pissed off because they lost a whole hell of a lot of business. If it is about money, the business owners lost out!!!! Looting??? Enter the real world pls. The citizens of King aren't that dumb. A little "bad" weather isn't going to cause problems like that. This was New Orleans after Katrina.
