    brings - "I hope this is a typo in the article...it should read you are urged not to approach him! Not urged to approach him...the man is considered very violent!"

    Tie his hands behind his back and cuff his feet together, then let his estranged wife and children have 10 minutes alone with him and give each aluminum baseball bats. Beat a woman, and a woman should beat back.

    I know that I make typos a lot. It's understandable.

    I hope this man is caught soon. I hope his wife and chidren are being protected or where he can't find them.

    I tend to agree with danhoggard and deerslayer!

    Maybe he'll resist arrest and receive a stiff dose of his own medicine.

  • deerslayer May 8, 2007

    shoot him on site...

    Praying for the family and for him to be apprehended swiftly and safely for all.

    God bless.

    Now there's a meaningful description. Now the public knows who to be on the lookout for.

    You know, I make type errors all the time, but then again I'm not in the business of reporting news to the public. I see typos time and again in WRAL stories. Nobody's perfect of course, but the writing by the WRAL staff is laughable. They should be embarrased.

    I guess the typo was noticed...I see it has been corrected!
