Chapel Hill resident Steve
Dorozenski makes his wife ner
vous when he walks to work on
Franklin Street early in the morn
ing and back home late at night.
After Student Body President
Eve Carson was shot to death.
Dorozenski, who owns Jack Sprat
Cafe on Franklin Street, said he
started to consider the danger of
the dark alley he passes through
on the way. And he wishes there
were more police around.
*1 know it’s impossible to make it
completely safe, but the town offi
cials should at least attempt to cre
ate a safe feeling,” Dorozenski said.
Police statistics show Chapel Hill
experienced slightly more crime
last year than the year before.
But the rate of personal crimes
homicide, rape, robbery and
aggravated assault decreased by 1
percent from 2005-06 to 2006-07,
according to the Chapel Hill police
department's quarterly report.
The only other homicide this
year was the result of a domestic
dispute, but police say Carsons
killing most likely was random. The
idea that it could have happened
to anybody has prompted some to
tread with more caution.

CHARLOTTE - Even the

Only four days after wallop

Take a look at the following images for good and
bad practices to prevent a break-in where you live.
leave blinds on windows and doors closed, with the panels
facing up so that if someone tries to look in, they see the
ceiling and not the floor, where they might be able to tell if
someone is in the house Hide valuables from plain view
large rocks outside your residence are tools burglars use to
break windows. Trim plants in from of windows and doors
to 3 feet or smaller so there are fewer hiding spaces. Get

The N.C. Department of
Correction is blaming a short
age of parole officers for errors in
handling LawTence Alvin Lovette’s
The department is investigat
ing why the 17-year-old’s parole
officer never made contact with
him in the months before he was
charged in Student Body President
Eve Carson’s shooting death.
Preliminary findings point to
inadequate screening of potential
employees, department spokes
man Keith Acree said.
The investigation is scheduled to
finish next week.
“As we look at these cases, we’re
uncovering questions about man
agement and hiring practices,"
Acree said. “We re looking at how
quickly we fill vacancies."
The probe already has led to
Lovette’s probation officer being
relieved of her case duties.
Chalita Thomas was placed on
administrative duty after it was
discovered that she had never met
with Lovette and had only been to
his house one time, when Lovette
was not there.
And on the day Lovette was
charged with first-degree mur
der, Thomas broke agency rules
by going into the Department of
Correction database to record five
past failed attempts to locate the

charges of driving while impaired
since 2006. The first charge, from

Terry said students and com

Because of that tendency, the

“We go through all the police
reports, and we call people to first

and to possibly find the person

Terry added* that invaders
