    I just find it funny that this happened on Tuesday and they waited until 10:23pm on Thursday to report on it. I'm from Lillington, and this is so typical of WRAL. If it doesn't happen in Raleigh, it's not important, right? This guy is LONG GONE by now!

    Poor guy. Give him a break. He needed the money. It aint his fault because the white folks are keeping him down.
