He’s just a misguided youth, right?
A 17-year-old was arrested Thursday on charges that he fired shots at two adults and two children in the front yard of a house on Drew Street earlier this month, police said
Or is it something much more serious?
In many states, a 17 year old criminal wouldn’t be readily identifiable by the public because their criminal records are sealed. We’d just assume that it was the random act of a child, not as the considered choice of an already established criminal.
Is it any wonder that the usual suspects are trying to “reform” the law that allows 16 and 17 year olds to be tried as adults in North Carolina? Don’t be fooled by the “low level crimes.” They don’t want 16 and 17 year olds to be charged as adults for anything.
Good to know they already have the suspect in custody
Authorities in Newton have a man custody after a deadly overnight stabbing.
So who do they have?
With a record like that I believe he qualifies as the usual suspect.
It sounds like an idyllic life, doesn’t it?
Feng Liu had a lunchtime routine that his colleagues and lab partners at the UNC-Chapel Hill school of pharmacy knew well.
The 59-year-old Durham resident usually had a bite to eat and left his lab for a brisk 30-minute walk on campus or through nearby Chapel Hill neighborhoods. Typically, he returned cheerful and invigorated by the midday exercise.
But even in peaceful Lefty Paradise Chapel Hill, danger lurks.
On Wednesday, the research professor at UNC’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy never came back.
Chapel Hill police said Liu suffered a severe head injury during a robbery at the intersection of Ransom Street and West University Drive about 1 p.m. Wednesday. Prosecutors said during a brief court hearing Thursday afternoon that the two men who robbed Liu hit him in the head with a rock.
The age old weapon, probably the first weapon ever “invented.” There’s no background check on rocks. Yet they still kill just as efficiently as they ever did.
And who preys on internationally renowned research professors?
People who should have been in prison instead of wandering about Chapel Hill looking for easy victims.
Keep in mind, the President of the UNC system went to a lot of trouble to make sure everyone knew that UNC was a “Gun Free Zone,” and students, faculty, and staff were prohibited by law from carrying a firearm. It would be interesting to find out if these two suspects, who were from Durham, came in to the UNC area because they knew that their victims would be disarmed.
It’s not the weapon. It’s the criminal mind that wields them.
This seems like a very high bail.
A Wake County magistrate set bail at $1 million Monday for a man whom Wake County sheriff’s deputies charged with possession of stolen property…
But then you find out he’s already on $250K bail from another county and has enough felony theft charges against him to warrant charging him a environmental fee for all the trees he’s killed printing out the charge sheet.
I don’t think this guy is going to change his life, so why do we keep letting him out of jail?
He didn’t shoot the hotel.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office has charged a man with critically wounding a woman Wednesday at the Scottish Inn on U.S. 70 near the Durham County line.
The eventually caught up with him in a traffic stop later.
I wonder if there’s anything we can tell from their respective criminal records?
Shooting a gun into an occupied property is a very serious crime.
A Cary man is accused of firing a weapon at an occupied home.
So is the attempted murder they charged him with as well.
Seems he’s graduated from robbery to attempted murder by drive-by shooting.
