    Yes, the same kinds of faces are in the news, StreetGlide, faces like those belonging to Wade Michael Page, James Holmes, Jared Loughner, Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols. Ooops, those are all white men, or is that what you mean?

    For exactly which crimes do you propose profiling?

    and the same beat goes on in Durham, same type people, same trends,,I am not a detective, but I find it kind of strange, WRAL does a better job of investigation that Durham. They keep putting that same type faces in the news, maybe a stake out is in order, or better yet, Profile!
