    It appears that both of these outstanding gentleman already are familiar with our justice system - I guess this is another fine example of our excellent parole system at work:

    Here is Mr. Holloway's proud record:

    It is good to see another Durham West End Alumn is out in the world doing his city (Durham) proud.

    I see our gun control laws are working...NOT. This is why they don't work, they only affect law-abiding citizens not criminals like these 2 guys.

    "They *don't* have to go to work Monday morning, but that doesn't mean they do not work. To say nothing of people who work in retail most/all weekend as well. But feel free to show how ingnorant you are of the world around you and that hard working people might work a schedule that isn't 9 to 5 M-F."

    ncwebguy, take a web lesson in reading comprehension. This isn't about questioning why people have time off on a Sunday night to hit the club and get robbed. It's about THE CRIMINALS, whom I'm sure don't have jobs are out robbing the very people that have "out of the norm" work schedules.

    I found it hilarious that the 2 suspects are from.......Durham. Nice! Cornwallis Road, that's near my old stomping grounds.

    Just because people go out on a Sunday night does not mean they do not work. They could have a job where they do not to come in early.

    I know a Durhamite didn't have the nerve to say "It happened in Raleigh. . what did you expect?" Are you kidding me...I wouldn't like to come to parts of Dangerous Durham if it was 2:30 in the afternoon.

    Sunday night/Monday morning is the "weekend/going out time" for a lot of people in the service industry -- bartenders, waitresses, chefs, etc. that spend most of their Friday and Saturday nights waiting on everyone else.

    They *don't* have to go to work Monday morning, but that doesn't mean they do not work. To say nothing of people who work in retail most/all weekend as well. But feel free to show how ingnorant you are of the world around you and that hard working people might work a schedule that isn't 9 to 5 M-F.

    And the "It happened in Raleigh" comment, from someone in Durham with an NCCU Eagle logo.... Two people being shot would be a *slow* day/night in the Bull city, not that there are any nightclubs worth going to in Durham not shut down due to gangs and underage drinking.

    Groovy - OF COURSE they have jobs (going to "work" every night robbing others of their hard-earned possessions) !!

    They probably don't pay a lot of Social Security or income taxes either....

    I was thinking the same thing jbirdnc. Don't these people have jobs? of course not.
