My Turn, Your Turn: Your turn on loud parties

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Normally I get responses to My Turn segments via email, and  I read every one of them.  But recently one viewer got creative and sent pictures.

Last week I commented on loud parties in the neighborhoods around UNCW. I expressed sympathy for those people who have to put up with the noise, students parking on their lawns and the litter.

Well that got the attention of Kirk. He lives near the university.  And he wrote to us that at 2 o'clock in the morning he finally asked a group of students to keep it down.

And here is how they responded.

Kirk tells us this red mustang belongs to him.  Now some people are going to look at these photos and see it as a harmless prank. They will justify this behavior by pointing out it could have been worse.  But you know what?  That excuse is not good enough for me, and it's downright abusive to Kirk.

What bothers me is Kirk was treated this way because he simply wanted to sleep. Does that seem like too much to ask at 2 o'clock the morning?

That's Kirk's turn.  Now it's your turn.  To comment on this segment or anything else, email me at
