Last week’s ‘suicide by cop’ tragedy has been debunked, at least in local publications. It seems that the poor Marine had a history of gang affiliation and was high on blow at the time he killed a police officer and was subsequently shot in the course of an armed robbery. One true nugget from the lamestream media coverage was that this Marine did, in fact, have pending deployment orders… Except that they were to Okinawa, not Iraq. Where’s the national media correction? None forthcoming; the ‘right’ point was made and the ‘right’ people stirred up.
