I was in Fairmont, NC a few months ago and fell in love with it and and now I plan on moving there by December of this year! So to get to know the area I have been reading the Robesonian on line for a few months now, WOW! what is going on in Lumberton?
Why can't the crime there be stopped?
I think someone from there should call the Guardian Angles, what do you think?

THE MAIN PROBLEM IN ROBESON CO.IS THE COURT SYSTEM.CHECK OUT ANY COURT ROOM IN THR COUNTY.RED SPRINGS,LUMBERTON,ST.PAULS,JUS T PICK ONE,AND GO EA.WEEK FOR ONE OR TWO MONTHS AND SEE HOW THEY LET THE DEFENDANTS PLAY THE SYSTEM.YOU WILL SEE BASICALY THE SAMR FACES EA.TIME YOU GO.WHY? BECAUSE THEY LET THEM EITHER LET IT BE CONTINUED TO ANOTHER WEEK,BECAUSE THEY DONT HAVE THE MONEY,THEN THEY COME BACK IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS,STILL NO MONEY SO THEY GIVE THEM MORE TIME TO PAY,ITS A JOKE!!! THE COURT SYSTEM

Its could possibly be the people in Fairmont and the hard work that has been done on main street by the Mayor and other town folks. People in Fairmont are not snotty like most folks in Lumberton.

I have lived in Lumberton for most of my life.I am a teen,and if you look at the crime report they will say most of the crimes are from the young gangs around here.You see violence at school and kids talking about dealing drugs or buying drugs all the time.I will admit I have lived a sheltered life but I am very observant.
The kids will find trouble to get into because all those extra activities cost money many do not have.If lumberton would stop trying to be the tourist destination for a rest stop and start building better recreational centers for families,museums,or better yet remodel that old library then maybe these young people will be less likely to cause crimes.

Kids get into trouble because their parents fail. They fail to instill a good value system or teach them how to deal with bad influences.

Better recreation centers are not the answer. Look at how the rec. area near the cultural center in Pembroke was destroyed. Build a new one, the thugs will destroy it too.

These problems will end when parents teach the right values to their children, and the children take responsibility for their actions and do their best to make Robeson Co. a better place.

The gov't ain't your answer. Take some responsibility and make things better yourselves!

I grew up in Lumberton. The reason the crime is bad is because of how poor a county Robeson County is. Poverty breeds ignorance, and ignorance breeds violence and crime. and "fall in love with fairmont"? haha its worse there than in Lumberton.

hi, I live in harlem on a block where drug dealers sell their wares publicly on the stoops of apartment buildings without fear of arrest and if they are arrested, they out of jail the next day; the situation on my block is common in oppressed communities in nyc.
I was born in harlem, and i was raised in Lumberton, nc during segregation. the one thing is clear to me is that nypd is at the head of drug dealing in harlem. the chiefs get paid big and they pass down $ to the uniform officers. law enforcement, federal, state, and city have no interest in conducting a war on drugs; they are not going to bite the hands that feed them. nypd knows where every drug house is in the harlems of nyc and they protect them.
the above observation is true in Lumberton and was true when I lived there regarding houses that sold bootleg liquor. police, the sheriff dept. etc. get paid. I won't go into the social reason that the cops allow drugs and weapons flow in the communities of African American, colored (people of color?)and the poor in the harlems and lumbertons of America; it has to do with containment, destruction, and state-sponsored genocide.

You can't just put it all on the parents. Some of these parents are kids themselves S/S say a girl can have four kids , before they tie , clip, her tubes it should be one. Than you got the Government who put these lazy butt people in the projects living with boyfriends and selling durgs. The society around a child plays a large part in whats going on. They see and hear about political authorities using and selling drugs, stolen goods just plan crooked deals. Lumberton, NC needs a new sheriff new county commissioner, new leaders that can't be brought. A lot of praying than you may see a change. OH one more thing all Political Authorities needs to take random drug and alcohol testing, you would really be suprise, this should be for the public records because they are employed by the public.

Having just moved down to NC, Iíve found I like it a lot down here. I actually live in Lumberton though, and find it appalling that the crime rate has been allowed to clime to the rate itís at. Where are the police? Why are so many scumbags getting away with daily thefts? And yes, I mean daily! Read the crime reports in The Robesonian Ė Seems like itís only a matter of time before my cars are definitely broken into, and possibly my house. What a load of crap! So much for ďSouthern HospitalityĒ and what have you. If not for my job transfer bringing me to Lumberton, Iíd never have chosen to move here instead of, oh ANYWHERE else in North Carolina. I want to learn the history of my new home, but so far, Iím curious why anybody wantís to call this place homeÖ Where is the public outcry? Whereís the support? Why the massive crime rates? I come from a place where bull$h!t isnít tolerated. I naively assumed moving to NC would build upon that, but in Lumberton, apparently people are stuck living in fear of scum. Pathetic. Clean up your act Lumberton! Itís must be embarrassing for good people to admit they live here. Just awful. My advice Ė Stay armed. And train to hit center mass. F*** the oxygen thieves!

To be honest I would not suggest moving to Fairmont/Lumberton or Robeson county in general. I've been in Lumberton over a year now and I can't believe how violent ppl are around here ... 11 murders in 2016 more then 3000 property crimes (break ins) 16 rapes ... animal abuse left and right, dogfighting, drugs ... it's a joke ...

If you really decide to move here, be sure you have a job. Everything is closing down ... job situation around here is not good at all.
