    As well, my comments do not indicate that the girls did anything wrong. I did comment on the area and time of the incident. RIP to both young ladies and my condolences to the families.

    Unfortunately this is a forum and we are all entitled to our opinions lucas. And I do live in Wilson, so I do know the area, so do not tell me that I don't know what I am talking about-thanks! Lived here for 4 years. Know for a fact that that area is gang filled. Son delivered pizzas there at night, and I know exactly the types of people out there at night. So save your lectures, I am not buying a ticket. I also work in LE, so sorry if I don't speak as if I were born yesterday. If you don't like my comments that is your choice, as well as mine to express them. Enjoy your day.

    I really got something to say at NOWAYYY comments..you are just darn rude...for one get the facts straight before you get up here typing your opinion. How you know if the neighborhood is bad if you do not live there. Some areas may look bad but crime is everywhere. And I feel that Walmart parking lot at this time of year is BAD so I do not think that the area has anything to do with it. And being the out going young woman she was why do she have to be home. But she was out because of work. Nothing is wrong if I want to get out for a min and go to a store for snacks. When I was pregnant I use to ride out to stores at anytime just to get a snack and never once would have thought that someone would judge me by the time that I go out. I had to visit some of the smaller stores because the others were closed. They were in all different types of neighborhoods.

    No, that area does not seem very safe. BUT! Unless the facts say the young ladies were up to no good - why guess just because of the area? Regardless of where they were, and really before midnight not THAT late! So, my point is, I hope the families of both girls have a stong support system and I pray the survivor recovers! Please remember you ASSumers out there.... they are someone's daughter! They are children of God! Some folks can be just mean!

    I don't have any personal knowledge of the situation, but to assume that "Maybe they should have been home in bed, getting ready for work the next day?...." seems mean-spirited. Sometimes my husband is just coming home from his second job at that time of night- if you saw him driving home at midnight, would you believe that he had been out frivolously? Everyone doesn't have the same work schedule.

    This is a sad situation and assuming the worst of the victims is unkind.

    The news don't always report the right story but whether they were sitting in front of a house or a store it's still tragic. And to the one who decided to make the first post and say "Lovely" residential area, would it had made a difference if they were sitting in Belle Meade residential area? Crime happens everywhere despite the area it happened it. If that was your family member that was killed would you be commenting the same way. Let's not forget that these were innocent lives taken, so let's stop judging and stop being ignorant in the things we say because these young ladies have family who are mourning and you don't know who is on this website reading these comments. Let's be cordial and respect other's feelings!!

    The address given is a house, not a store, and what difference does that make, because it was late at night? Would it be any less tragic, if it happened at 6 a.m.?

    Wilson....hmm...Durham, Fayetteville, anyone seeing a trend here?

  • claudnc Nov 10, 2011

    Wow feel sorry for the victims and families. My daughter is young and working at a hospital (Grady Hospital)in ATL. The hospital is public and treats everyone in the city... She often drives a coworker home at midnight... folks shouldn't be so quick to assume how other folks are living.. You know they saying assumption is the mother of all Mess ups..Oh and feel free to insert another word Mess!
