    Hey WRAL, what about the shooting in North Raleigh on Monday. Another crime, shooting, that goes unpublished, on behalf of Raleigh.

    Yet another unmasked bank robber. .. tsk, tsk
    It's sad when you can't afford a mask, bandana or scarf. Do these guys just want to get caught? It sure looks that way, to me. Hopefully when he's caught, he won't waste the judicial systems time trying to deny it!

    Any article posted about a crime in Durham, there are always and immediate comments posted, "This isn't surprising, there is constant Durham crime", when the picture is black, the next comment is, "Usual suspects, what they need to worry about is their own" or "Where is Black Lives Matter now." Just look at any crimes committed in Raleigh/Wake Co. and/or committed by whites, there are no comments period with the negative, degrading things said. It's just my thing of, no it doesn't take away the crime, but please don't overlook your own as if it's not happening. That goes for their city and their race.

    The "lack of Durham and Blacks comments" - What does that mean, exactly?

    Not surprising, more crime in Raleigh, Wake Co., but even more not surprising, is the lack of Durham and Blacks comments. Back to this dummy, where have you been that you believe there are no cameras. It's basically theft, to only enjoy for a minor amount of days before the video and pictures are released, and you are caught.
