    True, but if WRAL hadn't "jumped the gun" by releasing a "breaking news" story when they had NO information then there would be no need for people to wonder.

    Photo on ABC 11 shows RFD's Hazmat Unit in front of the house, so yes there is probably more to this story. Just be patient folks. If you don't know something immediately it will be OK.

    Seems to me the biggest oddity on this story are all the comments from the commentators. None of you know the details of this story. There may be a very rational explanation for all the police presence.

    So just sit back in your recliners and keep watching. Complain if there are too many cops. Complain if there weren't enough there if something terrible goes wrong. Win/win for you no matter how it turns out.

    Before everyone starts crying about seeing 9 cars stop and think for a second. Could there possibly be more to this story that you haven't been consulted on yet? I'm sure in time we'll find out some additional details that will enlighten you. Why the fuss about how many cars responding anyway? If the subject is a danger should we give them better odds by sending just 1 officer? I didn't know there was an unwritten rule on being fair in numbers to dangerous people.

    Armed and 'barricaded' in ones own home.
    SO? Isn't that what a lot of people do each night when they go to bed?
