Show some sensitivity. Couldn't you have just reported that a mammal entered and robbed the store?

"A lot of people saw him before (the robbery), so hopefully we can get some good leads from that,"

Hopefully the witnesses don't work for YDR, or you'll never know the race of the perp!

Then he uses the money at the Wrightsville bar later on, gettin' drunk, and stabbin' some innocent, caring, outstanding local resident. Just ain't right! He must have lost the blue banana though, as that wasn't mentioned in the stabbin' incident.

He also robbed the pizza place, or so I hear.
The crack news reporters from the local paper sure are doing some hard, in depth news reporting!

Did anyone see it on Tv either?
I saw lots of crazies in Egypt, which has nothing to do with us, but -ZERO- about local news issues....
Oh, wait....they did talk about the snow. My bad.

How dare you profile us mamals!! I've spent my entire life trying to get people to understand that I'm not a fish, and now you go and try to paint us mamals as a bunch of robbing hoodlums. You're a phylumist!

This really upsets me. Members of my family go in that store on a regular basis. It makes me mad knowing how hard the owner works for the few dollars they can make operating it. I know in the past been they have been willing to help in a sub sale benefits for others who need help. This isn't some big inner city drug territory. This is just a small sort of sleepy a lot of the times rural town. Or it used to be. Our own local little versions of Mayberry are changing! The fights at the bars that used to be fist fights have turned to being truly violent. Last year there was a shooting. This past weekend a brutal stabbing from patrons at another one. The bank there is held up on a regular basis. How do we stop this advance of the thugs taking away our sense of safety in our towns? Is it going to come to the point you can't feel safe any where? It sure looks like it sometimes. It just makes me sick!

Was he a Tutsi or a Hutu?

Or maybe one of Mr. Charlie's klan?

Maybe one of those Spanish folks, like Rickey Martin?

Sounds like you don't know how to 'celebrate diversity'! Come on, it's great, at least that's what the radio ads say. Dealing with crime, violence, and dependecy on a regular basis will help you and your children deal the ever diversifying world! Yeah diversity!!!

You just hit on one of the things that make our small towns what they are. A lot of people saw him before (the robbery) and aren't worried about being called snitches or whatever. They aren't afraid to say they saw him and they aren't afraid to talk to the police to try to get him apprehended! That's why the thugs will not take over in the rural towns like they do in the inner city. The gang mentality isn't the way we think or operate! Thank God for that! Thugs be warned we are united in our cause and will fight tooth and nail in a legal manner to keep our towns safer!

Color has nothing to do with being trash, thugs or having a gang member mentality. So your comment white trash is far more out of line than my use of the words thug or gang, niether of which suggests gender or race. I was so unimpressed by the way in which you expressed yourself I was not going to acknowledge it and respond, but then I thought twice. Since you seem to have some sort of difficulty expressing yourself in clear English as most intelligent people would, let me make this clear in a way you might understand. In your case? S T U P I D should hurt! A thug is someone who is of the type of character that would rob someone who is unarmed and defenseless. Gang member mentality is to not get involved when a crime is committed. As for my being a river rat? I don't know where you are coming from in that statement. I know some people use that term for people living near the river, which I do not. Another point in your senseless tirade that is completely without any merit or value.

no police presence in Wrightsville/Hellam unless you count targeting speeders.
someone's heads being cut off down-town, but they wont provide backup.

First of all where did big city trash get that the robber was the one that stabbed the person at the bar. Second.. color doesn't have anything to do with it. The guy is a low life lazy jerk that depends on everyone else to support his butt.
