Major King with the Goldsboro Police Department says around 1:20 this morning, two armed, black males jumped through the drive-through window, forced the manager and one employee to the office and demanded money at gunpoint. The Manager was pistol whipped during the robbery and the two suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

    Really! How could you be so insensitive? My son was working at that McDonald’s last night and I know the manager that got pistol whipped personally. They were just trying to do their job. This is not an Obama issue. He had nothing to do with it. It is not a race issue either. That could have easily been 3 Caucasian males. It is an issue about a criminal act that was committed against my son and his coworkers that will scar them for the rest of their lives.

      It is racist remarks and racist people like you that keep this country divided. Hood rats comes in all race, and It is discussing when you sit on your racist behind and try to pretend otherwise. When something like this happens, instead of you thanking God that no one got kill or disfigured you come up with some stupid reply. That shows the difference between me and you. Do you think that you make your neighbor’s proud that they have a racist right in their neighborhood? Pitiful.

    Thanks Mike. That small minded level of systematic racist thinking is exactly why I left Goldsboro. And if you are in the mood to thank presidents, it’s more appropriate to thank Reagan for the state of affairs. But Mike I’m sure they didnt get past Adams in the 3rd grade when you dropped out. No worries all that book learnin’ ain’t for everybody

    WOWWWW!!!! Reagan? Really? Are you so incredibly dumb and brainwashed that you want to blame a President from the 80s for the rampant criminal behavior of black men? You are a special kind of stupid, sweetheart.

    Ms. Bowden, please consider not allowing ignorant racist comments to be posted here. I understand that the comments don’t automatically appear…they go through someone before they are posted. Please let the coward, closet racists spread their hatefulness elsewhere and keep this a site that reports the news.
