    “The injurys are not considered to be life threatening.”She’s in CRITICAL CONDITION!Sounds life threatening to me.These reports don’t like to focus on the fact that people were STABBED–probably by a minority thug.No,they report, “she’s going to survive”,which by its very description,downplays the violence of the crime.Local media prefers to ignore black crime anyways,and this is another way to make this type of crime seem less violent or important–“not life threatening”…Riiiiight.

    Also a very important point to make the wingate apt complex owners did nothing to inform residents about this crime. This should have been made known to everyone so that they can prepare for something like this. It is very sad that they did not.
