    edie3470, can you tell us a city of 200,000+ that does NOT have the crime that you mention?

    gmuny, I'm afraid you're probably wasting your time trying to point out certain realities to certain people. It's clear that Bartmeister and the redneck in Johnston County have a particular bias against Durham; neither one commented on the Shaw story. They probably read and comment only on the stories that have Durham in the headline. As tired as I am of yahoos like that singling out Durham, they're simply going to continue doing so. Trying to have a logical discussion with them is like trying to have a discussion with a stump.

    Does Durham have crime? Certainly. But it's my home and I really like it here. A lot of people really like living here. To those of you that don't live here, I hope you are happy wherever you are. I'm sure it's wonderful and perfect there.

    Shaw student shot, Spring Lake woman robbed, fight at Leesville High SCHool, Rocky mount man defrauds elderly woman....and on and on. Sure all crime happens in Durham

    For those here who continue to bash Durham, and for some reason overlook Wake Co., and Raleigh. Crime happens any and everywhere, so please get beyond your self hatred of Durham, unless every person in Durham has done something to harm you and/or your family.
