Why hasn't WLTX pointed out the inconsistencies in Filyaw's interview (i.e. he 'surrendered' and 'he gave her the phone to play with') when the earlier reports such as this one showed he tried to run and the girls took the phone from Filyaw while he was asleep. Instead they let him speak freely...clearly sympathetic to the criminal. Not very professional in my opinion....
