    "They will surely update this story as they often do (if you ever check back) as time goes on."

    Well, it's been 16 hours since this story was posted and I do NOT see ANY updates...

    Dandy, thank you for pointing out my spelling errors.

    Please remember to capitalize the first word in your sentences.

    Not everything is a "media plot" with a "Politically Correct agenda". LOL So, turn off Rush Limbaugh for a minute. Don't you complaining folks think that a news outlet would post every detail that they had...IF they had it?

    They will surely update this story as they often do (if you ever check back) as time goes on. Sheesh...you're whining about free news... :-)

    ncguy, it's not really that dangerous to fish the barren sea....more like the bering sea.

    but i agree with part of your point; it certainly is dangerous to be tending the counter at any convenience store, especially overnight.

    This is the second time someone has injured a clerk in that very same store.

    I'm sure there are descriptions of some sort in the police report - or someone at WRAL didn't bother to ask for details.

    This is pathetic reporting.

    Wow! We will be on the look out for two men! Were they white, black, yellow, red, green? Tall, short, fat, skinny? Were they wearing masks, beards, goatees? Were they nekkid, wearing flashing neon green clothes? *shaking my head*

    PC is going to be the downfall of us all!

    who said that fishing in the barren sea was the most dangerous job?
    I think being an overnight convenience store clerk is!
