Teen Charged with Breaking into Church

A Wayne County teenager has been arrested for allegedly breaking into a church and accessing pornographic material.

18-year-old Tyler Pruitt is charged with six counts of burglary of a church.

He is accused of breaking into Riverside Baptist Church in Wayne County and using a church computer to access pornographic Web sites.

Pruitt is also accused of using a church phone to dial "1-900" numbers.

Investigators say the break-ins had been occurring on and off since August 2009.

Officials say Pruitt was caught after church members set up a hidden camera near the computer.

    To Attn Mack: Seems that you have no idea what you are talking about. How can you be Sure if you were not there? You are ignoring the facts as I presented them. The only way to reach your conclusion is to create new facts. Regarding your financial aid situation. The funding authority sets the rules. You are a true RACIST if the only reason you can find for different treatment regarding FINANCIAL AIDE is color. My first cousins did not get college aide because they were a family of six with two middle class incomes. My siblings received grants and financial aide because we were a family of nine with less income. I received a full ride on an ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP. Facts are important, don't you think.

    TO come together: You are not entitled to your own facts. Generally, the term allegedly is not introduced until an arrest has been made. However, a person of color hears the term applied to people like them a lot less often than someone of European desent.

    "allegedly" is used in every crime until proven guilty...its not a white or black thing you came up with that one yourself ... and the people on here are disgusted with what this young man did the people are angry at what the young men did at the park because they put childrens lives in danger...could have killed those young children on easter sunday at the park that is horrible... all of these guys should be dealt with in court but dont try to act like people are harder on blacks than whites when it comes to crime it all depends on the crime.

    Well Mack I am sure wherever you work they promoted the other person because they fit the position better, if thats not the case you could easily file discrimination charges through HR... but of course you live in the south and poor poor you cant get anywhere because of your color... if you want something go for it and stop feeling sorry for yourself... and I will give you an example of something I went through that makes me feel like I am discriminated against... I was going to college living on my own working as a waitress and tried to get a grant for my books and tuition...do you know that they said I make to much... thats crazy because I only brought in about 20,000 a year if that... A few black friends of mine were floored that it is so hard for a working white person to get a grant for help with college... It is proven blacks get more help with everything than whites...Why do you think so many live on welfare??? Because they can!!!

    What is this 'allegedly', used when whites commit crimes(ON TAPE NO LESS), and give 'em the death penaties when Blacks commit crimes?

    To all the Henry-haters. His first comments were sarcastic. But your reactions to them are the real truth of the situation. When blacks commit crimes, their parents failed to raise them properly. When whites commit crimes, ON TAPE NO LESS, it is the parents you feel sorry for. And oh yeah, I'll play the race card, when a white kid with two years less experience and without the advanced degrees that I have gets promoted over me. HOW CAN YOU DENY MY REALITY WHEN YOU Haven't LIVE MY LIFE.

    I just plain don't understand the ignorance exhibited in these posts. You are calling this kid black, and that his parents are no good in allowing him to get in this kind of trouble? If you had any intelligence, you could look at the picture of him in the media and see that he is white! What difference does it make what color he is? He broke into a church and made 900 calls, for which there is a fee. Why do you idiots keep trying to pull the race card in every instance? I am WHITE---the kid committed a crime---he is white. The crime was committed, and he needs to be dealt with legally. You all need to get over yourselves.

    YES RACE DOES PLAY A BIG PART IN THIS WORLD BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT WANT TO KEEP IT GOING... GET OVER IT ... WE ARE ALL TREATED EQUAL WETHER YOU WANT TO BELIEVE IT OR NOT... WE WOULDNT HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT IF MAJORITY OF THE WHITES DIDNT VOTE FOR HIM... AND JUST FOR INSTANCE LIKE THE ORDEAL IN NJ WHEN THE 16 YR OLD IGNORANT TEEN GOT ON THE SPEAKER AND SAID ALL BLACKS LEAVE THE STORE...THINKING HE WAS BEING FUNNY AND THEN ALL THE BLACKS WANT TO BOYCOTT WALMART FOR IT...THATS CRAZY ...THE FACT IS THERE ARE RACIST WHITES AND RACIST BLACKS AND THEY ALL NEED TO QUIT POINTING FINGERS AT EACH OTHER BECAUSE OF COLOR AND JUST GET ALONG... PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE THE MAIN ONES THAT KEEP THIS KIND OF STUFF GOING... I REALLY HOPE I SEE A DAY WHERE BLACKS STOP TRYING TO BE VICTIMS ALL OF THE TIME AND ACT LIKE ALL WHITES ARE AGAINST THEM WHEN THEY ARE NOT AND WHEN THE OLDER WHITE CROWD EXCEPTS THIS IS A NEW TIMEFRAME AND AGE WHERE WE ARE ALL EQUAL AND SHOULD BE TREATED THAT WAY.

    You might not want to admit it, but race plays a big role in this here world. Don't play with me and pretend that you don't realize that. I will "play the race card" as often as I see fit. When you see my name on a comment, skip it!
  • by OH HENRY on Apr 2, 2010 at 04:08 PM
