    He's be caught and out on bond in 30 days, he will probably continue to rob and when they catch him again, the news will say he was out on bond awaiting trial for an armed robbery. Does the bond industry or business have some secret method to get the legal system to keep on letting these people back on the streets, every time lately on this WRAL news feature, it says the same thing, they were out on bond, should keep the laywers and legal people working overtime just to keep current, but the taxpayers are paying the bill.

    If the individual had been a light brown African American, would WRAL have described him as "having a light complexion?"

    It's a small pic but he's black. What's so hard about telling the public what race a person is?
