      YES!! Cannot understand why any woman “shacks-up” and trust their God-given precious gift to a stranger. She can always go whoreing around if she is in heat.

    Personally? I feel DEA, FBI, SBI need to come in & do a drug clean up….
    For alot of counties surrounding onslow….
    The dept is doing the best they can but they are way outnumbered in the rampant distribution/ use of herion & crystal meth….
    This childs death & the individual with or with out vest is a product & outcome of these 2 deadly drugs…..
    Also no facilitys to put these addicted ppl in for help……the jail is just that….jail……there are no nearby rehab centers for these ppl…..
    My opinion soley
