Don't know
Please don't speculate about what I might or might not post about. You don't know. You are clearly the one with the strange agenda, not me.

Any murder at Friendly would receive the same media coverage, if not more, than a murder at 4 Seasons.

Funny thing is that people assumed it would a group of young African American males and it was the total opposite.

People develop these biases and literally WAIT for things to happen just so they can point them out. Its sad. Friendly's had its fair share of crime. Murders, bank robberies, stolen cars crashing into stores, jewelry heists, etc. all in recent time, and you rarely hear about them (exception of the armored car shooting). A teenage girl getting physical with security and you see headlines like "Yet more pandemonium and carnage at Four Seasons Mall."

Thanks for proving my point! Crime at Friendly gets lots of media attention. In fact the almost 10 (!) year old murder case was, according to the article you posted "...highly publicized..." And I won't bother to mention where the perp was arrested.

You had to really dig deep in the archives to pull those up...nice work! 10 years ago, lol.

The point is you and the triad media like to keep certain areas of Greensboro clean and so they don't talk about all of the crime and stuff that's happening.
I was at friendly last year and a guy ran out of one of the stores with a armful of merchandise lol knocked over people and everything I bet nobody ever heard of that! Because the news didn't post it!

No, thats really NOT the point. That point was completely disproved up thread, in case you didn't notice. Please try to keep up.
