    I'm sorry, but in the part of Raleigh, profiling is usually right on.

    My 16 year old son is worried about getting good grades in PreCalculus. Then you have this 16 year old killing someone. What happened that made their lives turn out so different? I'm guessing rules, expectations, and involved parents-both of them!

    This is another sad story involving an underaged child. This child (16 years old) should have to spend 30 years in prison. If the parents did not raise him to go in the right direction; maybe the prison can teach him something.
