    North Carolina is trending...in the wrong direction. We now have a murder rate and if it continues it will be one of the highest in the U.S.

    True, but NONE of the credit goes to Roy Cooper, who is notoriously anti-law enforcement.

    I think it's just you. The general trend over the past decade in NC has been a decrease in crime rates.

    is it me, or is there a crime spree going on in North Carolina?

    The Attorney General seems more consumed with gay arraignment than acting like the top law enforcement officer and addressing these seemingly endless acts of violent crime.

    His name was Quentin McKoy. Someone kicked his front door in and shot him in front of his girlfriend and newborn baby. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
