The Virginia N-Double-A-C-P has called for a "selective buying campaign" directed against Circuit City Stores.
The Richmond-based appliance and electronics chain is the target of two race discrimination suits.
A state N-Double-A-C-P official says the campaign is not a boycott.
But he called on consumers to take a strong look at where and how they spend their money.
The company has denied any discrimination in hiring and promotions.

A Roanoke County woman says she'll go to the highest authority if she has to, but she won't give up.
Carolyn Anderson's parked car was hit by a Salem fire truck, and so far she has gotten nowhere with her claim for damages.
The law gives cities immunity for such things when providing legitimate governmental services.
Anderson's 1995 Grand Prix was sideswiped while she was attending her daughter's graduation earlier this month at Roanoke College.
The fire truck was responding to an emergency call.
The damage was under 400 dollars, but Salem's insurance won't pay it.

By 19-98, four of the most secure prisons in the nation will be right here in Virginia.

He's got to to keep up.

((RON ANGELONE/VA. CORRECTIONS DIRECTOR: HAVE INMATES IN THE DAYROOM KILLED AND INJURED OTHER INMATES. YES. HAVE THEY HURT STAFF UNDER MY WATCH, YES.))
RUNS=:09


He's been the man in the hot seat -- as his boss abolished parole and started packing 'em in.
There was the loaded gun that may have found its way onto Death Row.
Most recently, a corrections officer stabbed by an inmate at Mecklenburg.
sot 01:43:57

((RON ANGELONE/VA. CORRECTIONS DIRECTOR: THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT I ALWAYS LOOK AT IS YOU HAVE TO HAVE A STAFF THAT WANTS TO RUN THIS PRISON. AND TO HAVE A STAFF THAT FEELS SAFE EVERY PLACE THEY ARE TO RUN IT. THEY DO NOT FEEL THAT THEY'RE OVERWHELMED, OUTNUMBERED, INTIMIDATED, NOT IN CHARGE.))
RUNS=:17


Hence, Red Onion and Wallen's Ridge in Wise and Dickenson Counties.
They're just drawings now -- but by dividing the state's most violent predators into two separate units, they're the safest plans Angelone's 27 years' experience has to offer.
sot 01;22:51

((RON ANGELONE/VA. CORRECTIONS DIRECTOR: ULTIMATELY RIGHT NOW, UNTIL AFTER WE GET IT OUT AND WORKING AND SAY WE COULD ADD MAYBE SOMETHING TO IT, IS THE ULTIMATE DESIGN IN THE UNITED STATES RIGHT NOW. IT PROVIDES THE BEST SECURITY.))
RUNS=:11


Sussex I and II in Sussex County are actually a little less sophisticated -- but one will become the new home to Death Row.
sot 01:19;12

((RON ANGELONE/VA. CORRECTIONS DIRECTOR: DEATH ROW IS NEVER YOUR MAJOR PHYSICAL PROBLEM WITH INDIVIDUALS. THEY'RE NOT INMATES THAT ARE CONTINUALLY CAUSING PROBLEMS. THEY ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT. I MEAN THEY ARE FACING THE ULTIMATE OF SENTENCES.))
RUNS=:13


So all four prisons have a new first in Virginia: guns and gun turrets INSIDE, overlooking the common areas, the mess hall.
Their ammo is rubber bullets meant to stop, hurt, teach a lesson -- but NOT kill.
The sound track of the architect's video inspires confidence.

But really it's the view that warms the hearts of corrections officers.
All four prisons are slated to open by 1998.
