    I can't help but wonder if this was a case of "hey y'all watch this"... Especially considering alcohol was involved...

    Could not agree more! WRAL has gone as far as showing a vehicle where the driver was killed before the body was removed. Need ratings that bad?

    Pretty sure his relatives would not like his pic splayed all over for all and sundry to see. WRAL you are becoming a nasty piece of work.
