Only the guilty ride away from the cops on a moped

Let’s set the scene. Two Fayetteville Police officer stop a guy on a moped.
During the foot chase, one of the police officers injures his knee, and the suspect escaped.
I can’t find anything in the Cumberland County Jail records, but I can find the DOC records where it shows that he was convicted of drug possession with intent to sell, a Class H felony.

He ran because he was a felon in possession of a firearm. Will someone please explain to me why we bother having all these annoying gun laws if a drug dealing felon who can’t even afford a decent getaway car has two gun in his pockets while he is still on probation?

    Well of course it’s because we feel so much better when we tell ourselves that the rules will make us safe and we don’t have to prepare for our own defense. Let someone else protect us.
