    OMG I totaly agree with ABM! I just knew when I logged in to WRAL this AM I was going to see a headline regarding HILLSIDE! NOT! Shame on you WRAL!

    What’s so special about this guy? I am sure there are hundreds of probationers unaccounted for. hmmm?

    I'll tell you, WRAL has to find or post bad news on the city of Durham daily, so they hunt out stories like this one. I don't have proof of it, but the headline is headlined with DURHAM!

    I love DURHAM, born and raised.. I bet you would never see a story headlined "RALEIGH man sought on probation violation"
    when there are probably just as many in Raleigh (men sought on probation violation) as in Durham.

    Not once have I seen in BIG letters "Hillside High School is playing for the 4A State Championship in Winston-Salem this weekend" and "many members of that team will be playing football next season at a division one school"

    No, you will not see that, just that Durham Police are looking for someone!! WRAL, what a joke...
