Speak Up: Not a crime problem


Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Rocky Mount has crime. Rocky Mount does not have a crime problem.

There is a difference.

Any city the size of Rocky Mount with 50,000-100,000 people is going to experience crime.

That goes with the territory. It is true everywhere.

I have lived in town all my life and I have never heard of a quadruple murder occurring in town.

Now there have been homicides and there have been a serial killer or two but I have never heard of a four-person slaying like what occurred in the country a few weeks ago.
