    What I can’t understand is the focus of the Greensboro Police Department. In a recent article in a Rockingham County newspaper about “sovereign citizens”, a Greensboro police officer explained how his department trains to deal with such “threats” to the community, even though I know of not one instance of a concerned citizen breaking the law or committing mayhem as the criminal element in Greensboro. Maybe if the Greensboro PD dealt with the real upheaval in their city, and their own failures to maintain order and protect the citizens, instead of training to fight law-abiding citizens and phantom threats that may not even exist, we wouldn’t be having this discussion about a crime-ridden Gate City.

      Thomas, a “sovereign citizen” is not a “law abiding citizen”. They do pose a real threat to others in society, as well as law enforcement.

      Explain how you believe law enforcement should focus their attention on real threats without knowledge of that threat occurring beforehand… Seeing the future maybe?

    According to stats, Greensboro is actually worse than Chicago per capita. Plus it’s a lot worse than what is being reported. Once polititions figured out how to pad numbers, crime started going down.
