One of the saddest examples of how far our media has fallen

Generally speaking I don't watch the news and I can't stand any of the major outlets. I am particularly anti places like MSNBC or Foxnews that have no objectivity. But this style of reporting should revolt everyone.

What happened to our news being objective analysis instead of blatant marketing for whatever idea a particular reporter wants to push???? I guess being objective is too boring and no one would want to watch...

So here's the highlight important bits
  • Intruder breaks into house
  • Women takes two children and retreats through THREE LOCKED doors and up into a crawlspace
  • Intruder hears someone in house, breaks through THREE LOCKED doors and opens crawlspace.
  • Woman shoots intruder when she has nowhere else to go

and the USAtoday seems to think that the point they should lead with and bold is.....

The man pleaded for her to stop, but she kept firing until she emptied her rounds

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...ruder/1821905/

Honestly do you think the media was intending to tell the facts of the story, or to build public opinion that what she did was wrong???

I'm not personally a big self defense fan because I don't personally believe I could shoot someone except in the most extreme of cases. But damn I'm amazed at what this women did, she likely has little training and completely panicked and yet she still hit 5 of 6 shoots. Considering I believe police hit < 20% of shots fired on average that's amazing. She's either one hell of a shot or he was REALLY REALLY close. The simple reality is that I think in that situation the vast majority of people would be so scared that no matter what the guy says almost everyone is going to be pulling that trigger until they hit and empty chamber. It's not evil intent, it's unbridled panic.

Un ****ing believable by the media.....

And all those projectiles fired at once - certainly that must violate the rights of that poor disadvantaged criminal!

Exactly correct action, empty the gun then take the kids and run to the neighbors. Shooting only to gain the upper hand just gets the innocent killed.

Empty your .38, and reload. Empty it again.
