People here killing like murder do not come with prison time. These young people have no regard for life or freedom at all. I pray the families get the justice they deserve and the killers get the time they deserve! All this senseless killing gotta stop! They need to make examples out of these killers.

Great site for info on what is going on around the areas. Constructive criticism time; I need Charlotte Alerts to hire a better journalist and/or writer for this site. The news is on time, but the writing is way too uneducated and it definitely sounds like your friend saying “guess what happened?” Instead of an actual news fact, even if everything is definitely a fact.

Hire a new professional writer for your site.

All these killings in Charlotte it’s just ridiculous. When I lived there it was never that bad. How the hell are all these people getting shot and killed and nobody knows anything???... We as a whole get more outraged at a police officer shooting one of us when we’re out here killing each other. Another family losses a loved one over some bullshit that should have never happened. This is why it’s so hard for us to be heard and not looked at as a joke when we kill our own people. This shit needs to stop!! Aren’t we hurting enough. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I hope you find justice!

So you know that the killer is a minority? How do you know that? Where did you get that information?
