      Every negative thing in the world is not due to Obama. This is a local issue, where crime is getting out of hand. If anyone is to blame it is Greensboro Police and our local leaders for not doing much to stop all of the robberies in the area.

        LEO is under no obligation to do a thing, as they are REACTIVE, and you cant carry a cop on your shoulder everywhere you go.
        Those who commit such actions are those that are animals of opportunity, so you wont have a SWAT team sitting where they act out.

        You are so right. Why is the Chief of Police in Greensboro and Winston Salem and the city council members not held responsible for the crime they allow to continue. It is time to seriously crack down on gangs and this type of crime with task forces and overtime for additional officers needed approved by the city council. Stop making promises you don’t keep and start taking action.

    I know this is off topic, but did anyone see those strange lights over Greensboro on Saturday between 7:30 and 8pm. It was at least 12 to 15 bright lights moving across the sky.
