    I see a very disturbing trend with modern news reporting... they (the reporters) all want to be Politically Correct (PC) in their reports. Unfortunately, when somebody goes back to do research on race based on initial reports they will find that this information is constantly left out. Come on WRAL, grow some and give us more information - and do not say that you could not get the information... that is nothing more than lazy reporting techniques/copout.

    "I thought crime would go down with all the concealed carry permits, the castle doctrine, on and on - the Archie Bunker approach to airline security doesn't work?" --Gork

    The article does not indicate that she was a permit holder nor carrying a gun. If she had a permit and was carrying a gun that argument might work. You might as well be arguing about airbags and seat belts not saving her from this as she walked. Gork, you make some pretty good arguments on here sometimes but this one was really ill conceived. Your past displays of intelligence show that you know better than to post garbage like this.

    It's confusing. Did they BOTH shoot her? Was she shot twice?

    I don't think crime is necessarily jumping in this area. I mean, do ANY native Raleighites under the age of 90 remember a time when Haywood and Lenoir was NOT a bad area? If anything, it has come way down since Chavis Heights was torn down.

    One of the numerous reasons why I cannot WAIT to move out of that area (south/southeast Raleigh). I feel very unsafe even though I have a concealed carry and a big boxer/pit bull (who, unfortunately, is too much of a sweetie to do anything). I'm sadden to hear my hometown is turning into such a crime ridden area.

    Like I said before Raleigh is becoming very crime ridden lately. Raleigh's quick increase lately is becoming a little alarming and wonder why it is jumping up like it is. In my 25 yrs of living here all the crime I or my friends have been a victim of has been in Raleigh and never in Durham. People bash Durham all the time but Raleigh has been leading the headlines lately in shootings/robberies...
