YOU HAVE a good day. FAMF is a saying on the block, if you lived on the block and were relavent to the disscussion at hand you might understand. I have not nor do I intend to get violent, I have invited some folks to talk. nothing more than talk.

you should go back and read my first post. praising of a dog that the neighbors fear, a home invasion that this paper "the sun news" made to sound as if was random, these are my issues, they were targeted not for being upstanding citizens with money, this is not a wealthy neighborhood, you can drive right around the corner and find far more "richer houses" for the picking. they were the target of a terrible crime (I do not dispute that a home invasion is a BAD THING to have happen to anyones home) they were TARGETS. they were targeted because someone had a grudge, wanted drugs, revenge, money, whatever it was, the lifestyle the "victim" leads led to this crime. the dogs in the yard, the police raids, the loud tire screaching trucks, the SHOOTINGS, these are things no-one wants on their street.

When you have something relevant to say speak up.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS INDIVIDUAL MOVE ON TO GREENER PASTURES ELSEWHERE, that is the point I am making. my children are not allowed to walk the length of my road BECAUSE OF THIS HOUSE!!

I would like to see my kids walk down to the end of the road to see their UNCLE without fearing a drive by, home invasion, police raid,(yes mothers ran out of their street clutching their children, the ICE CREAM truck was there for gods sake when the raid happened) or blind guy screeching his tires in the road.

My neighbor informed me of her 80yr.old brother that has been broken into 3 times and forced to purchase gun to protect himself no grudges no drugs just thieves.My children are NEVER out of my sight because of the rapists,kidnappers and the crazy people in our tourist area and all of us have lived here all our lives.People are arrested all the time here that are innocent people.This family should not be judged by anybody not our job.Thank God for the dog the people may have been killed.

obviously, old timer, you have not read all these posts, you are also mr. far away, I live on Woodlawn and have never been broken into, the neighbors across the street were calling the law before the shots were fired, he watched it all and that is why these folks were caught so soon and still on hwy 90 less than 6 miles from the "VICTIMS" home. We do not have neighborhood watch signs on Woodlawn but mark my words the neighbors are watching!! everyone in this neighborhood is on the watch for activity such as this, and that is how we all see the amount of traffic in and out of the VICTIMS yard, my friends come over and stay for dinner watch a movie or even stay the night, this guys friends are in and out in a matter of 10 or 15 minutes?? I am not insensitive to the fact that he was burglarized. the lifestyle he chooses in my OPINION has led to this crime. a close friend in the Horry county PD has told me there is more to this, but will not tell what. this guy was/is involved in drugs,(in my opinion) this is what has led to the most recent in a string of problems this resident has brought to our community. read the post from their own people, the raid did happen, a "friend" left drugs in their home? my friends have never left "pounds" of pot in my home, BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE FRIENDS WITH POUNDS OF POT, they are victims, victims of a home invasion that was the result of their lifestyle choice!! to glorify, dismiss, or defend it as anything else makes you naive, uniformed or just blind (in my opinion)

open your mind for a moment and think of how you would react to a house in your neighborhood with chained pitbull(s), traffic, loud trucks, police raids, midnight shootings, and all this in a short period of residency. how would you react? be honest with yourself on this one.

You seem to have lost track of the topic of the crime and have alot of opinions you have formed by yourself you may be wrong.The fact is?You have neighbors that have not been out of jail long for growing marijuana close to YOUR home,heroin addicts and alot more that goes on on your road than you obviously dont know about.The family that asked you to keep your children from beating his dog with sticks (IN HIS YARD TIED UP) are the least of your problems.This could have easily been your home or the kids UNCLES?,that was invaded. The thieves shot the holes in truck and thank god there was nothing else damaged.The thieves are in jail where they belong victoms o.k. and that is bottom line.You obviously have no job?Are you a drug dealer?I think before all is over you will be quite suprised how very wrong you really are.

you obviously are a sad little man, I have a job a home and a family that I am trying to keep safe in my neighborhood, I know about the growers, they did not have a shootout, they don't have vicious pit bulls, they don't screech tires and they(he) did their jailtime, if I see pot growing in his garden I'll call the cops.

the topic of MY POSTS is that the story the Sun News reported does not tell the whole story, I think if you REALLY reread my posts from the start you will find that what I have stated is true:

THIS HOUSE was raided for drugs.

THIS HOUSE just had a shootout/invasion

THIS HOUSE has pitbulls chained up/ running loose killing birds (the dog they/you/whoever accusses of killing them is harmless)

THIS HOUSE has traffic way beyond a normal home

THIS HOUSE has a hotrod truck out screeching tires all hours of the night

WHERE do you come up with my children beating his dog? my kids go nowhere near this house

MY home and that of my brother or of my friends has not been invaded, there is a post on here not by myself that states this house has been broken into 3 times 3 TIMES!! sounds like a target to me!

I think you should stop defending your friend long enough to be objective and really look at the facts. think outside the box and realize for one minute you might not know the whole story, I am not trying to convict this guy of drug dealing, I do want to see this dog gone, I do want to see the traffic stop, I do want to stop hearing his tires, I do want to HAVE A SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD.

and as far as the rest of the neighbors go, if I see or know of illegal drug activity I will pursue them with the same vigor and legal actions that this guy will be getting.

I AM AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY NEIGHBOR, BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR AND YOU WILL BE TREATED WITH RESPECT, BE A DRUG DEALER AND THE WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD WILL TALK AND POINT FINGERS. IF HE IS NOT A DRUG DEALER I WILL APOLIGIZE, SINCE HE IS A DEALER, HE SHOULD MOVE. YOU WANT HIM NEXT DOOR? WATCH OUT FOR BULLETS OLD MAN.

just as I thought, maybe now you see my point, cause it looks like maybe the neighbor is going to clean up his act a little?

The neighbor is a nice guy and young naturally has alot of friends still NO ONE deserves to be invaded in his OWN HOME.I DO NOT see eye to eye with you at all.On the contrary I understand neighbors are not at all happy with you!

YOU NEED TO READ WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN, never said it was a good thing, in fact I hate it that it happened, my point is he brought this upon himself. the "partner" who had the pot in his house, yes they were partners in some sort of business, who came up with the scheme to make big money real quick with this pot has not come forward and resolved things has he? the blue truck is gone, I assume to pay lawyer fees, the 4-wheelers are gone, I assume to pay lawyer fees, the boat was for sale, its back in the yard, must have come up with lawyer fees.

did they just install an alarm? saw HTC's alarm guy in the driveway. time to get rid of the bad dog if the alarm is in place!! noticed they are keeping him in the house though.

most of the neighborhood knows me, I am not perfect, but I have never had a problem, on the contrary, I have helped some and some in the neighborhood have helped me. I am friends with almost everyone in every house he can see out of every window in his house and on both sides of the pond.

I could care less if this guy smokes POT, I could care less what this guy does in his house, whatever he does if it stays on his property, does not involve the police, shootouts, dogs killing livestock, and all the noise from this place he once had I COULD CARE LESS WHAT HE DOES!!

the neighborhood knows me as DEUCE!! I am not hiding behind a fake name online, if he wants to say something to me here I am, everyday in his neoghborhood.

You seem to miss the point, THIS WAS NOT A RANDOM HOME INVASION, DON'T PRETEND IT WAS, HE IS NOT THE VICTIM OF A RANDOM ACT, HE IS A VICTIM, I DO NOT WANT ANYONES HOME INVADED, HE IS A VICTIM OF HIS LIFESTYLE, POT IS ILLEGAL AND BRINGS FORWARD PEOPLE WHO DO ILLEGAL ACTS. WHEN CRIMINALS KNOW YOU HAVE LARGE AMOUNTS OF POT THEY TEND TO GET IT IN THEIR HEAD TO ROB YOU. I DO NOT HAVE 10 POUNDS OF POT MY FRIENDS DO NOT HAVE 10 POUNDS OF POT, THERFORE THEY HAVE NOT BEEN BROKEN INTO.

YOU OBVIOUSLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!! IF ANYONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH ME WE TALK ABOUT IT. THEY DON'T ROB ME!!
NO-ONE DESERVES TO HAVE HIS HOME INVADED,WE DO SEE EYE TO EYE ON THAT!!
THIS WAS NOT A RANDOM INVASION, HIS LIFESTYLE HAS LED TO THIS!!
I DO NOT HAVE POUNDS OF POT IN MY HOME.
MY FRIENDS DO NOT HAVE POUNDS OF POT IN THEIR HOMES.
NO-ONE ELSE ON THE BLOCK HAS BEEN BROKEN INTO BUT THEY HAVE, 3 TIMES, THEY ARE TARGETS OF THEIR LIFESTYLE.
I DO NOT CARE IF HE SMOKES POT, BUT 10 POUNDS OF POT OBVIOUSLY IS TOO GREAT A TEMPTATION FOR THE CRIMINAL ELEMENT YOU CAL "FRIENDS" TO IGNORE, THEREFORE HE WAS INVADED BY THUGS.

I know he smokes! he smokes with a friend of mine! I don't care if he smokes pot. I don't care if he grows it in his basement!(thats a figure of speech, I know he does not have a basement!) its the dogs, which does seem to be in the house lately, and the raid, and the shoot out that makes this guy a problem for MY neighborhood. just because he didn't have any pot then did not mean he didn't have it when the cops came did it?

my neighborhood is just as full of crooksand drug dealers as yours is, this guy is the one having shoot outs on the block though! keep it to yourself and I don't know or care what you do in your home. start shooting it out in my neighborhood and I will have a problem with you too. are you sure you are not my neighbor? saw him at the blue store and was going to speak but my wife is scared of this guy and his issues. maybe next time I will introduce myself and have a good long talk with my neighbor!

Wow, after reading all these post's I'm beat. I feel like I just watched areally intense movie. My car was broke into in my own drive way, and I have a cop that lives 4 doors down. Crime happends all the time, and the more people that move to the area the more we are going to see and expirence. Unfortunatley our area is now a metro and not the small little beach area it used to be.

It is true that crime happens everywhere, but it IRKS the crap out of me to hear a drug dealer/user held up as a poor victim, when he brought this upon himself. When you live a life in the criminal circle, whether a thief or a druggy, when you associate with criminal elements, you should not be suprised when crime happens to you. this individual was not a random target, he was a target and knew the individuals who came into his home to rob him at gunpoint. WE should do everything we can to protect our families and should start right at home by not being involved in crime ourselves

I am saddened to see Ralph in the neighborhood once again, I hope that he has stopped "sales" and will become an upstanding citizen in my neighborhood.
