    Gee whiz, wonder if it was a minority since it's omitted?

    That's not racist when it's REALITY. Be offend if you wish, doesn't change reality of who's committing crimes in this area no matter what news media spin you try to apply.

    Raleigh crime is getting RIDICULOUSLY out of control. Scary place to be living these days. Wow.

    Three men. They where wearing clothes, had arms, legs and a head.
    It is not known if they had teeth and/or hair.

    75tTarheelUNC.Wow racist or what. You guys don't do any crimes. Unless a great deal of money is involved. Then kids, wife mother, no one is off limits. I'm just saying.

    Kind of expected in Raleigh nowadays. Glad the person wasn't hurt in this senseless crime.

    "It's called Attempted Robbery. It's a crime. Although perhaps you just rule it as a frat boy joke".

    Article doesn't say anything about a robbery attempt. Just that she was approached by 3 men. 1 man had a gun. I approach people every day while I carry a gun and I'm not wanted on WRAL......

    WNCN has additional description information in their article for anyone who would like to know something other than "three men".

    I didn't see what you are talking about. Same info as WRAL. Try again and let us know.

  • CharmedLife Oct 31, 2013

    Hey, WRAL, why won't you give us the FULL description of these "three men"?!!

  • corey3rd2 Oct 31, 2013

    having a gun is not illegal and if they are not sure if anything was stolen then it sounds like there was no crime committed.

    It's called Attempted Robbery. It's a crime. Although perhaps you just rule it as a frat boy joke.

    Let's see, another robbery with 3 men and a gun. Sound familiar? Then and now it was three Black males. All the other news agencies have it right. Tell it like it is.
