    That's just Durham. We all know how Durham is and we all know why.

    These kinds of crime happens in other cities too. Its just not Durham even though it seem like it. There are very good people and families living in Durham.

    Kbrian, I'm not shocked by you having a mortgage in Durham, but I'd be shocked if someone bought your house quickly if it went on the market! And my family still comes to Durham. It's almost like going on a wild safari actually. We ride around town and the kids holler and squeal, as I point out some of Durham's more "interesting sights". We never come to a complete stop at the lights though, the kids get too upset and start crying. My niece says its more fun that a haunted house at the fair, because IT'S REAL!

    Actually Glock, a good portion of crime in Chapel Hill comes from Happy-go-lucky Durham residents! Funny how they love to come up the blvd. to rob, oh and kill, like when Durham residents murdered the UNC Student Body President Eve Carson. And no matter what scale you look at Durham crime jumps off the chart compared to the State of North Carolina. I understand why Durham has cheerleaders. If I was stuck with a mortgage on a house located in the City of ( Emergency) Medicine, I'd be singing it's praises too ( at least until I could unload the property on the next pigeon) - Saberage

    You didn't like it here. We get it. Rest assured you're no more happy to be gone than we are for you to be gone. I have a mortgage here and am happy about it. You're absolutely shocked, I can tell.

    badgering to persist.

    There is no badgering here on this forum. Reread the comments and story.

    I guess WRAL is only allowing the badgering to persist.
