    And the thing that truly boggles the mind is how much of cowards the media is for not drawing the obvious conclusion of what cities like Rocky Mount, Durham, Greenville, and Fayetteville have in common. Don't hear about a whole lot of murders in Asheville or Kitty Hawk do you? I wonder why?

    The thing that bothers me about coverage of stories like this is that it never mentions if the victim deserved it or not. How much WRAL was so adamant about proving that Brad Cooper killed his wife because she deserved it, but they don't ever try to investigate whether or not many other victims deserved to be attacked?

    Cold, but true, I have family in Rocky Mount, and I pray every day that the good Lord will look out for them. yvonna0226, I do hope they catch the person/persons responsible for this. I'm not a cold person, but I read the papers and see whats going on in that city. It's just like Greenville, not a whole good going on right now.
