Man shot and killed for peeing in public – Or was he?
Title of the story:
Man urinating in Houston street shot dead after being confronted by angry residents
This certainly implies that this poor gentleman was killed for relieving himself.
However, more details come out further down the page.
Houston Police Department spokesperson Lt Ronnie Willkens said witnesses told police the victim was in the neighbourhood [sic] to buy drugs, and that an unspecified number of residents confronted him when he started urinating in the street.
Then the plot thickens further:
Fuentes and the suspect then got into an argument, during which both men pulled out guns. The suspect shot Fuentes-Buezo and then fled the scene.
The details are sketchy so far but there’s a distinct possibility that ‘Mr. Pee Pee’ pulled a gun on the wrong person in the group that confronted him.
Of course, there’s the de rigueur regurgitation of anti-gun statistics at the end of the article.
Here’s the original story by The Independent.
The headline looks like this on a Google search.
It’s called Yellow Journalism https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_journalism in the US and Tabloid Journalism https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabloid_journalism in Lost Britain (formerly known as the United Kingdom). This story is a very pure example.
The sadly entertaining thing is that The Independent tries to put on the image that it isn’t a Tabloid Journal.
Anyone who thinks there’s not a Culture War going on is sadly mistaken.
The BOGO on Tactical Professor books continues
I’m grateful to my subscribers who send me news reports about the Negative Outcomes gunowners encounter. The ones about children gaining unauthorized access to guns really make me sad, especially because some folks defend practices that lead to those tragedies. Consequently, the purchase of any Tactical Professor book now includes a free copy of Serious Mistakes Gunowners Make.
In addition, I have reduced the price of Serious Mistakes by itself to $4.99. I’d make it free except that people only value things they pay for.
If anyone who has purchased any of my books would like a free copy of Serious Mistakes, email me through the About section above and I will send you one.
