Assholes in the news

I don't think a black or brown person would have been referred to as a "challenged young man". I believe different adjectives would have been used to describe him and none as harmless as challenged. My opinion is he would have been described as a monster and worse.

I think it depends on the mindset of whomever is doing the describing.

I did see that Chief Manley is taking a lot of heat for describing the bomber as a "challenged young man" and not a "terrorist".

That seems to happen a lot in this kinds of cases. Even when it's not clear if the motive was politically, religiously, or racially based, a lot of people tend to consider crimes that terrorize regions or communities as hate crimes and/or terrorism. But, law enforcement's official definitions are more narrow.

Investigators are still looking into what motivated Conditt, but the recording he left on his cell phone shows that he was a 'sick individual,' according to US Rep. Michael McCaul.

McCaul has apparently heard the videotaped confession and told the press that Conditt referred to himself as a psychopath since childhood and that the killer also said he didn't feel any remorse.

He approached the 70-year-old woman in the parking lot of the Church of Christ and asked her for directions to a shelter.

Then he ripped her purse out of her hands and put the petal to the metal, leaving her to fall on her face. She suffered facial injuries and broken bones in her hands.

Police say the driver, who they haven't caught yet, is Gilbert Ostring, Jr. He's a career criminal who was released from state prison a year ago. Ostring has a history of targeting elderly women at churches. Lowlife fucker.
