    Poorly written. Hooked on phonics worked for the writer, editor, and censor.

    Booked into jail. Only one dead person right? It doesn't say she died. I guess it made sense when this was written, at some point.

    "One smart criminal. Saved us the cost of houseing him, feeding ..THANKS!"

    Why must people say something ugly and hateful and inconsiderate? Please think of the people who care for this young man and would be hurt by such comments. Regardless of what type of person this 21 yr old was, he has parents and friends and family that loved him and will mourn his loss.

    This is WRAL news. I think they pay the censors more then they do the writers. I can not believe that a man was in dead in a jail for 2 or 3 days and nobody knew it

    I DONT THINK THAT IT LEADS YOU TO BELIEVE THAT HE WASNT CHECKED ON FOR THREE DAYS. IT LETS YOU KNOW THAT HE WAS BOOKED ON THE 20TH AND FOUND 3 DAYS LATER DEAD. I DONT KNOW WHY IT IS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND.

    Beaupeep perhaps you should apply for a job at the newspaper since you are such a skilled writer.
