Had to ignore the news yesterday after getting pissed enough to yell at the TV.
“Local” shooting, at least two killed, two wounded (those numbers have changed since), news conference with the Gov and other high and mighties to tell us all how horrible it is (like we didn’t already know). One guy (I didn’t catch name or title) steps up to the mic to tell us about the victims. Victims IDs not given here since they don’t need to be related to this rant in a search…..
“Joe Blow, who we believe was in his 40’s or 50’s and who we believe was a 5 yr veteran of such and so service, and Joe Random who we believe was in his 40’s or 50’s and who we believe worked for X company…..”
And about that point I started yelling at the idiot standing infront of the mic that there should be no “we believe” when it comes to listing the victims. Either you KNOW who these people are, how old they are and where they worked. Or you do NOT know, and in that case you shouldn’t be announcing ANY of it!!!! Idiot!!
