    So was it a traffic stop or checkpoint? It was a very confusing written article.

    CrAsH628--I agree with you totally. They target the people that they know they can catch and of course if the last name matches the profile, WRAL will publish it asap. I know there are plenty of people that dont fit into this stereotype that are trafficking WAY more than that 400 grams, they just are smart enough to pay people like Flores to transport it...

    call me racist or prejudiced but it's getting awfully hard not to have stereotypes when reading the news anymore. almost like only certain stories get posted to convince you to feel a certain way.
