Bank Robbery Cover up?

Highlands, NC

According to the Busted paper, the Duffield bank robber is not being charged with bank robbery. She is instead being charged with robbery of a residence. WTF? This should be a federal charge. Why is McClung charging her with robbery of a residence and keeping it local? What's being covered up?

I have never heard of a bank robber getting their charge reduced to robbery of a residence. There really should be a federal investigation of the Scott County Commonwealth Attorney's Office. He has done some strange stuff. Overzealous prosecution of some (personal vendettas, obviously) to this kind of stuff. No consistency at all. I's VERY fishy.

So, I guess that means the U S Post office is a residence too, since the Bank is. Come on now. This is bull. This is a federal matter. Treat it like it is.This can't be tried in General District Court. Does the FBI know about this? What is the cover-up?

No doubt that something is up. If I were the BB&T people I'd be furious.

The truth is an "uncommom commodity" in Scott County. It's not whether you are right or wrong , its who you know or who you are related to.I understand that this happens in most small towns , but we are one of the worst !It really is a shame that a person can not be proud to say they are from Gate City .
