Media Word Games

  • A 16-year-old boy is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail after approaching a 17-year-old man and shooting him in the chest last week.
Such a fine line between "boy" and "man" evidently. But you know if he was shot by the police, he's be a "teen" or "boy" or "child" until at least age 20, especially if he was "turning his life around" or an "aspiring brain surgeon."

Thugs today, bah. No work ethic and no craftsmanship. Back in the old days we knew how to do it right. Walk up to the guy, smile and badda-bing, badda-boom. Two in the heart and one in the head.

Leave the gun, take the cannoli...

Cop shoots a 17yoa and the person is a child. Sixteen old shoots a 17yoa and the person is a man. Only in the world of the ghetto does this logic exist.

Semantics.

It seems its a "child" when it was martin or brown (who was twice the weight of the cop he was attacking)
martin was 5'11" 160
Brown, 6'4" least 300lbs
now think about it with "that" coming at you, you think oh it's just a child?

Relax, it's all bullshit.
Stop holding the propagandist ' s to the high standard of a journalist.
Recognize them for what they are and ignore the disinformation.
This nation is in serious trouble.

It is my understanding that the young man who was shot, was a prodigy who was both turning his life around and an aspiring brain surgeon.

"Po-lice shot him in the back!"

"He wa'nt in no gang!"

...and now it's...

"Hospital let him die of ebola!"

...after the hospital emptied out a 24-bed ICU exclusively for this guy, and had 50 people caring for him. (Source -- CNN)

Fuck the lying ass local media. I don't trust anything they report. I don't believe anything they say I know it to be true or can prove it myself.

I'm pretty sure that the use of; 'Boy' -- 'Man' -- 'Child' -- 'Adult', is dependent on: ......
--- a) who is doing the shooting
--- b) who got shot (killed)
--- c) the races of a & b
--- d) who is doing the talking / writing
--- e) how much shit can be stirred up by 'community activists'
--- f) how many Votes it can get our pandering politicians

It's kind of like how the definition of a 'Weekend' arbitrarily changes. Sometimes it doesn't include a Friday and sometimes it doesn't include a Sunday.

And sometimes it seems like it **Only Includes** a Saturday, especially if it's a particularly BLOODY "Weekend".

My 'baby' who would have started college the following week.

Which college? No reply.

My 'baby' who had 'high' hopes being mayor, then president of US.

Unarmed? 300-pounds of blubber, with 'tude coming at ya.

Police were called when rioters, um protesters wouldn't get off their lazy a$$es, leave privately owned gas station, Sunday wee hours this Sunday.
Rocks were thrown at police.
Officers pepper-sprayed.

Many are calling the act excessive police force.
Many stated protesters, 'I detest that word,' should be allowed to carry weapons.

Remove authorities, then bomb.

Margaret O'Brien surely wouldn't say she was lucky being born in her favorite town. Neither would Judy Garland, if she were here today.

Its Oprah-fication:

The only adults are women over 30.

Everyone else counts as children.

The Tribune follows state law and the AP Stylebook regarding who is a considered a juvenile. Even when charged as an adult, someone under age 18 is a boy. If you see someone age 18 or 19 referred to as a girl or boy in the Tribune, that's a mistake.
And what about the Department, which, despite being told by the state's attorney's office that there is _no reason_ to keep from releasing information on juveniles tried as adults, persists in refusing to release said juveniles' names and mugshots?

Heh...
Like the "mean" way you think. The only adults are women, Moms Against Things & The Dads Who Support Them (for fear of being cut off from strictly rationed affection) and LGBT persons over 30 are the only adults.

Oprah-fication = The pandering yellow-pinky libtard progressive nanny statist & constitutional rights abridging agenda.

Ol' girl been QUIET the last few years...

Felony charges for every violent thug aged 14 and above. Hire more cops and state attorneys. Build more prisons. Of course, I don't know where in the world the money will come from to get this done, but IT NEEDS TO GET DONE.

Sorry citizen... Your suggestion is 25 years too late.
Enjoy the media propaganda war against The Police and any meaningful expectation of public safety as we currently know it.

You see... They're changing the meaning of words, terms and phrases relating to "Police"'and "Public Safety" as the days go by.

With all the action happening in MO, I thought about the movie, 'Meet Me In St. Louis!'
The film was on a few weeks ago.

That's WTF I'm talking about.
