    He’s being lodged at the detention center. That is classic journalism there. Only in Thugsboro…

    Send him to death row.

      EXACTLY !!!!!!!!!!!!! Where’s the NAACP trying to fix their problems. Seems like everyday there is a black person killing or drug dealing. Not sayiny that the white people are model citizens, but everytime you open the Goldsboro Daily News the first pic you see is black. Maybe the NAACP needs to worry about there community instead of a the less important things that they discriminate about. Maybe they need to go work in those communities.

        Seems like everyday a white person is child molesting (and getting rid of the evidence by killing the children), and mass murdering. And let’s not forget the new trend of white folks…. OD’ing on their opioids.

        • Gail says:

          These ‘black’ people wouldn’t be able to sell as many drugs as they do without their white customer base. They come with frequency and large sums of money which is mostly courtesy of ‘Me-maw’s’ stolen checks.

          • Fact says:

            Still doesn’t excuse them from being trash ! BTW child molesters ,drug dealers or murderer’s they all need to be put away no matter what color they are!!!!!
