    All I can say is that it is ridiculous how SOME people whine about where news stories are placed and do not THANK the people who write the stories. Who cares where they are placed. If you do not want to read it then move on and shush. This incident happened almost around the corner from where I live. I think it is very newsworthy, to heck with where it is put.

    Since I live in Fayetteville, I consider the story newsworthy. With any luck, "fatchanceimwrong" doesn't live in this town.

    Here’s my vote for Concealed Carry.

    Had this individual been carrying, it’s just as likely that someone would have been hurt as the way it worked out this time.

    The difference is that it MIGHT not have been the intended victim that was injured ....

    To all thugs: Be on notice that if you attempt to harm someone that is carrying, SOMEONE is going to get hurt. It may be YOU.

    WRAL: How about designating a separate section titled "Local Crimes" and just put all the stories coming out of Fayetteville, Rocky Mt. & Durham there. That way you'll have room in the main sections for real newsworthy stories.

    How many times have we seen this same senario?
