crime should be a dangerous profession thankfully this one won't have a long successful career at it

Too bad the other three weren't perforated. Hope the cops get them.

Police say a homeowner shot and killed a 16-year-old suspected of breaking into his Phoenix home Friday afternoon.
Suspected? SUSPECTED? Let me guess. He's only a suspected burglar because nobody wants to ruin his self-esteem. Has anybody else here become as sick of political correctness as I am? It's okay for NBC to fabricate things to paint Zimmerman as a racist, but this kid is a "suspected" burglar? Makes me want to puke.

Oh, I dunno Doc- if they used it equally.

"The alleged Mayor of Chicago, together with the reported Chief of Police, were claimed to hold a press conference this afternoon. It is suspected that the report contains the alleged progress in fighting crime in the city.

This was delivered by Rahm Emmanuel, a self-described purported human being, who claims to be the Mayor of Chicago, but experts have not yet confirmed the report."


Sorta catchy, huh?

Yeah, that's how the "reporters" avoid being sued, in case they "report" that somebody did a crime then later it is proven that the "alleged" perp didn't do it.
Correction: I should have said that's how the "alleged reporters" are alleged to avoid being sued.

I am with you here, Doc. When people are WITNESSED doing things why can't a spade be called a spade? Loughner was the "alleged" shooter when dozens saw him do it.

Does this mean we have an alleged President? I know everyone in Congress is alleged to be crooks.
