    If anyone left there has any common sense they would get out now! I used to live there and ran as fast as I could before the birth of my first child. Kids can't even go to school without some kind of violence. If you are out after dark you pray that you will get home safe. It's a horrible, racist, uneducated area and I am thankful everyday that I left when I did.

    Henderson has really gone downhill in the past decade. I think that Henderson is now worse than Durham.

    Seems WRAL reports something like this from Henderson on a daily basis. What's up with that?

  • anonemoose Jun 16, 2011

    GEEZ, we have her age and name, but nothing more.

    First, Fast, and totally lacking in details. Too bad "I'm Witless News" is already taken for a slogan.
