Bias in the news: Guilty until proven innocent

I found this on another blog: The War on Guns

If things went down as they are explained in the original article who do you think is at fault?

Apparently, the author or the editor saw the error of their ways. I doubt they understand the error, they understand that people were upset about the wording.

You just can't believe the idiocy of these people. Even the title makes it sound like the shooter is the criminal. How hard is it to realize that defending yourself is not a crime, but a right?



Man shot in apparent Detroit road rage incident

Detroit -- A 33-year-old man is in critical condition at a local hospital after he was allegedly shot by another man following what appears to be a road rage incident in Detroit on Friday afternoon.

Two men -- the 33-year-old male who was shot and another driver, a 29-year-old man -- were traveling east on I-94 when police say the 33-year-old was cut off by the other driver, said Detroit Police Sgt. Eren Stephens. Both men exited the freeway at Cadieux and pulled up next to each other at a red light.

The older driver got out of his car, knocked out the other driver's window and began to pull the man out of the vehicle. The 29-year-old then shot at the 33-year-old, hitting him twice, Stephens said. The 29-year-old had a valid permit for the gun.

The 33-year-old was driven to the hospital by a female passenger and was in critical condition as of Friday night, Stephens said.

The 29-year-old remained at the scene of the shooting and was interviewed by police. A report will be forwarded to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, which will determine if any charges will be filed, she said.
