Families are complicated. People with vastly different personalities frequently spend time together based on their blood ties. These different personalities can sometimes lead to conflict, ranging anywhere from verbal confrontation to encounters that lead to felony charges. Recently, an altercation between a father and son in North Carolina has led to the father's arrest.
Earlier this month, an armed robbery reportedly took place in the middle of the day in a busy shopping center. The owner of a Charlotte-area jewelry store told police that he was caught off guard when two men entered his store, held a gun to his face and demanded that he give them cash. He also claims that he was beaten during the alleged robbery, which has caused concern in the area about an increase in both property crime and crimes involving violence.
There is no denying that sometimes police investigators gather serious evidence against accused individuals. While not always indicative of guilt, surveillance video can be one particularly effective tool for prosecutors in their efforts to obtain a conviction. But because these videos are often shot from odd angles and have a blurred or grainy quality, they can present problems for correctly identifying a person who may have committed a crime.
