Crimes are picking up in Winnsboro. All the jobs have closed and drugs and gangs are trying to take over. Police gotta step it up or we will have to take the law into our own hands.

I'm disappointed too about all the crime in Fairfield...it used to be a really nice, quiet place to live...some parts still other, but it's getting pretty bad.

I am sorry that what appears to be a nice, hardworking person is the victim of such a crime. I'm certainly not blaming him, but sometimes you just can't talk about what you have/are getting with ANYBODY.

Another one of those "There has got to be more to this story things!"
It's one thing to talk about getting your tax refund back (I never get those..) and having some guy show up armed at your door and wanting the money. Either way turning your back on some nutjob is never a good idea.

Yes,I'm blessed right now to be in one of the few areas that haven't had any crimes yet. We have to pray much. The guy that robbed the store in Great Falls on Friday was picked up here this morning. I'm proud of our little police force for the work they have done in the past two weeks. I'm praying they keep up the good work.

Right now we're not concerned about what color the victims or criminals are. We're concerned about people not being safe in their own homes. It is very important to not let people know too much of your personal business, but a crook is a crook.

Okay, so what have we learned today? First, do not brag about the amount of your tax refund check(s) and secondly, get direct deposit.

Here is a link to the census which YOUR tax dollars funded which shows that Fairfield County is about 59% Black, and about 40% White:

http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet/SAFFFact...

And even if your stats WERE correct (which they aren't), crime like this is STILL a fairly new phenomenon in Fairfield, in terms of the numbers.

Change the "only" in your name to "idiotic." I'm sick of people like you assuming that if someone is in a minority or lives in a minority neighborhood, they MUST be a criminal or somehow deserving to be a victim of crime. Grow up, shut up, and man up..."nuf sed."
