— Orange County authorities have charged a Chapel Hill man with murder in a Saturday night shooting.

Eric Jermaine Bradshaw, 30, of 8015 Sandberg Lane, was charged with first-degree murder and was being held without bond Monday in the Orange County Jail.

    No biggie. This criminal doesn't have to worry about HIS life as the crime occured in Orange County, which doesn't have the cahunas to do what's right. And it also happened in the state of North Carolina, which has disconnected liberal politicians in charge. If you're a murderer, you don't have to worry about YOUR life in North Carolina. Your victims can be killed without worry of your life being in jeopardy. Is this insane or what?!@
