UPDATED: Wednesday, 5:30p.m. How far is too far to go to make an arrest? It's a question many of you have asked News7 since Tuesday night when we told you about an undercover sting operation in Salem. A woman was arrested last week for prostitution at the "K-nail and hair salon" on West Main street.

"I've seen some brutal things on the part of policeman all across the south but very seldom, if ever, have I heard of a police force being as brutal and vicious as the police force here in Danville, Virginia," Dr. King said. Dr. King delivered his message days after Danville's infamous Bloody Monday, when city police officers brutally beat a group of 50 black people in the city.
