    That pretty much sums it up. Durham has probably the highest turnover rate for officers in all of North Carolina.

    Cowards use drive-by shootings to carry out their revenge fantasies. Let us classify this shooting as a terrorist act, which it is, and treat it accordingly.

    Their hands are tied by the mayor, city council and a police chief that panders to them and throws officers under the bus at every opportunity. It goes much higher than the police. They are not ALLOWED to do their jobs in some communities.

    The fact that every building at that intersection has steel bars on the doors and windows says it all...another crime in a federally funded housing area.

    I think he was talking about fencing in or out Durham as a whole, not just one neighborhood.

    Its time to start fencing in or out of areas, These drive by shooters are real brave people, Its time to build an arena, And put all these bad boyz , drive by shooters, in together and let them have at it.. Charge admission to the general public to watch, The Romans did it, No wait their fighters were true men , with honor and rules,
