And this one might even be criminally and civilly actionable.
‘It’s just stupid’: Teens allegedly post photo to social media of gun they stole
Even though the guns remain missing, he said he’s seen one of them — it was posted on social media by the alleged teenage thieves.
OK. Just the usual “idiot criminals post evidence of their crimes.” The real story is… the story.
One post shows the teens holding one of the guns while also flashing what appears to be gang signs. AJC.com is not showing the teens since they have not been charged.
So they aren’t identifying the suspects. But they do publish a picture of the victim, so the crooks know who to retaliate against. (Amusingly, in the crime photo, they blurred out… the gun.)
It gets better. For the criminals.
Police told Channel 2 they haven’t assigned a detective to the case yet, which is why there hasn’t been an arrest.
Yes, the Urinal-Constipation actually tipped off the crooks before the police even started the investigation. They now have time to purge social media, and dispose of the guns.
Zachary Hansen and his editor should be charged with obstruction of justice, and as accessories after the fact.
The Urinal-Constipation has a long history of journalistic boo-boos.
- Published a story claiming a reporter built an assault rifle. (A felony.)
- Smeared honest gun owners (Implied NRAAM attendees were responsible for criminal shootings.)
- Claimed a Gatling gun was found in a drug bust (And when challenged, “corrected” the story to make it a “water-cooler machinegun.”)
Those are just a few relatively recent examples of the AJC’s brilliance. But they’ve been a mess since I first lived in Georgia (1989), and natives tell me they’ve been screwed up since forever.
