On this edition of Deal of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from New York City, where Lamont Pride is accused of murdering an NYPD officer. Despite being arrested and released twice in New York since September, Pride eluded authorities searching for him in connection with a shooting in Greensboro, North Carolina. There was a felony warrant for Pride's arrest, but the warrant did not have extradition orders so he was at the mercy of the New York court system. Although Pride was wanted in another state, the courts released him twice, once on his own recognizance and once after serving less than 24 hours behind bars. Originally aired 12/13/2011.
