    Thank you heelsgirl05. I live there and neither my husband nor I are criminals. We are saving to buy a house so that is why we live there. I actually love it. Quiet and very few issues. @Jen I pray your son has a quick and speedy recovery.

    I also would like to thank all of the well wishers on here, most people are getting their info from the news, the detectives told us not to even watch it because they arent giving them ant info! I just wish people could put themselves in my shoes for just 1 day, it is heart wrenching to tell my son we have to change the dressing on his leg because it causes him so much pain, its not easy by any means, but we are doing what we have to do to make him heal correctly! Thanks again for all the well wishes, it really helps us get through the day a little better!!!

    pizno82, I am the mother of the victim, he wouldnt get out of the car because he didnt want them going in the house where his Aunt was! he was trying to protect her from harm! Think before you speak, you make yourself look very ignorant when you let your little mind think for you!!!

    Jenbo, hope your son continues to make a fast recovery. Although there are a few seedy places here, many of these people who live back in the townhomes are young families or young adults like myself who earn an honest living and can't afford a nicer house....yet. just because we don't own a $250,000 on the golf course does not mean we are all criminals back here in the townhomes.

    WRONG...not a rent a cop. Good try though!

    Did you know that people in the legal field can specify their area of practice? For example, criminal law, family law, real estate law. Just thought I would make it clearer for you.

    See look where that assumption got you! I guess you missed my point in the post about presumptions and generalizations. Most of the time you're wrong.

    Bartmeister-- I don't need to check any arrest photos! I worked in the criminal legal field, so I don't need WRAL's photos to tell me what the demographics of the recent arrests are.

    The fact that you described your line of work as being in the "criminal legal field"......tells me that you are a security guard. Nothing wrong with that but Im just saying.

    That being said, I don't make presumptions and generalizations about classes of people, so regardless of what the arrest demographics may be, I don't make assumptions about who may or may not have committed a crime. And if did, I certainly would not post my derogatory remarks on a public message board.
