I think it has something to do with guns being used in a positive rightful manner by college age people.

The media doesn't want to show guns as a deterrent to crime. That would be defeating the media's purpose.

Kudos to Charles Bailey!

Good the perp was black, I read "getting ready to rape" in the story too. Raw meat that.

You're twisted Pogo, what does it matter is the perp was black or white? They were in the middle of committing a crime. Would you prefer that the rape had occurred first before taking action? Or maybe a few dead people first?

This is the kind of racism and hate speech our country can do without. This is exactly the kind of narrow minded biggotry we're always getting accused of by this very individual. I'm just sure those college students baited that man with birthday cake and young women just so they could kill them when they entered. This is the kind of blind ridiculousness perpetrated by Civet just to pick fights in the Political section. I have a basis in fact to call you a nit wit.

Your post may be the most racist comment I've ever read in 6-1/2 years on this forum, Pogo.

Oh, yeah...that black reporter was obviously on a racist mission to exploit crime committed by a black man -- as was Charles Bailey (black) and the black woman interviewed as a witness.

You come up with garbage like that and accuse me of having race issues? eye roll

Ha, ha, you a funny guy CVC! Yes, I stand by my statement. It's not my fault if you are too concrete in your thinking to detect subtle nuance in statements. I understand what Pangolin's message is and it's not what you keep screaming it is.

Here's my take on the reported incident. The kid shot an intruder and I'd a done the same thing in that situation so good on him!

Onto the second issue, media coverage and why this wasn't plastered all over the world news. This just doesn't carry the same weight as some fourteen year old kid walking into his school and offing a dozen classmates. New is what's shocking and or titillating whether that's MSNBC, FOX, The Times, whatever.

If what you are saying is true about the evil 'liberal media' why didn't Faux news cover this for two or three news cycles? Because it's not that newsworthy to the majority of folks who don't care about guns one way or the other.

The point is that if those guys would've raped that woman and then systematically executed everyone in the house, it would've been all over the news and people like Pogo would be screaming for gun control.

But that didn't happen, because a citizen with a gun put a stop to it. No rape, no carnage, no executions. If a student had stopped the shooter at Virginia Tech, we never would've heard about it.

The gun control debate would shift rapidly if the general public heard more stories about murderers being stopped by a person acting in self defense.

People like Pogo go into hysterics over news stories about the occasional freak case, but nobody ever hears about all the other cases where tragedy DIDN'T happen because of someone who refused to be a victim. The media's lack of perspective on this issue skews public opinion -- especially among people who are easily led astray by bright shiny objects.

I don't know man, in this day and age with the Internet especially I think it's kinda pathetic to bitch and cry about the 'evil liberal media'. The people who drink your flavor of rhetoric get your message. They email each other, they get on message boards, they start websites, another words they preach to the choir.

I think your just mad because even in spite of this not everyone is in lockstep with your thinking.

I love hunting, I'm cool that not everyone in America or the world loves it. I can accept not all people will see things the way I do.
