- Most media outlets aren’t mentioning that those four people who found and reported that killer-kidnapper in Idaho were all armed, men and women both. (They didn’t confront the creep because even though they felt something was wrong about the man and the nervous young girl they didn’t realize until they got home who the two were.)

- Another death by taser. But of course, there was absolutely NO police wrongdoing as we all know. Because tasers, as we were so heartily assured when they first came into use, would never be used except as life-saving devices when guns would otherwise be drawn.
