    Maybe everyone is just sick and tired of it, ever think of that? The coddling, the pandering, the handouts and preferential treatment, non of it has helped.

    There is nothing preferential in continuing to hold a person accountable for past mistakes by withholding jobs and any kind of support and then expecting them to remain upright citizens...never gonna happen.

    @kim king...your past habits are a very good predictor of what your future habits will be.

    The past means a lot..why do you think job applications require that you list your past employers, drug use, etc. etc.....???

    It's very rare that an outstanding citizen that does nothing is arrested for murder. There is a reason they went all the way to Fayetteville to get him.

    the fact is your judging this situation off something you dont know..next week if they say he was released and all charges dropped then what do you say? I am saying know the facts in the case..your past is just that the past!!

    The facts are: "he was convicted in 1994 of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and served five years in prison, according to state Department of Correction records. Since then, he has been convicted of dealing drugs, credit card fraud and receiving a stolen vehicle."

    Another murder in Raleigh, NC. Surprised that WRAL even bothered to mention this. Their reporters seem to live in Durham and Fayetteville.
