    Dear WRAL, Did you ever think that you put the victims of these crimes and the medical staff who treat them at risk when you inform the public of the hospital in which they are being treated? Of course this not only pertains to WRAL, I wish people would think a little more when writing these "stories".

    Good job WRAL! There is *no* 100 block of South Swain Street. The house numbers jump from 45 north of Hargett to 205 south of Hargett. Is there anything else you got wrong? There are no apartments until you get to the 400 block (404 according to Wake County tax records)of South Swain.

    There is a duplex on the 200 block, but I wouldn't consider that an apartment complex.

    As a former head of the neighborhood watch, I know *pleny* of people who would have called the police in the area. But feel free to perpetuate your ignorance here. My neighbors and I will continue to enjoy being within walking distance of downtown, being part of a up and coming neighborhood, and the appreciating home values that come with that, even during the downturn.

    In that neighborhood? Hell, I can't believe someone even called the cops.
