    It is not I repeat "NOT" racial profiling if you give out the description of a known suspect! I know this is the latest stylish catch phrase but please people know what you are tallking about before you get on here and make fools of yourselves!

    Well since racial profiling elimination is being implemented, what do you expect from the news stations ?

    Just think, this gives the bad guys a head start on law enforcement avoiding apprehension. No description means lawfully abiding citizens have no way of reporting where the bad guys may be

    Capital Blvd? Really? What a surprise.

    Can you describe the suspects? Maybe we can help capture these people, that is if armed robbery is still considered a bad thing.

    No description from WRAL. Seems to me that perps should be described in detail including race. It is what it is and some reality, truth and open reporting should be offered by all media without having stories comport to their agenda. Media is always suing to get access to hidden records in the name of transparency but they do not practice what they preach.

    I've eaten a couple of times at this McDonalds. Always armed, of course.

    I guess the crooks are now realizing Christmas is fast approaching and since they haven't been looking for a job they need cash to get the kiddies some gifts.
