NewsOn6.com ^ | Mar 01, 2010

Posted on 03/01/2010 10:44:21 AM PST by cva41

They say when they arrived at the Chicken Hut, they found Verner lying on the ground in front of the restaurant's pick-up window.

He had been shot multiple times, according to Tulsa Police Sergeant Mike Eckert.

They had a difficult time getting through the crowd to provide aid to the victim, and no one was trying to help the injured man, Eckert said. People were instead stepping over Verner to get to their food orders.

Your bastardization of the actual headline makes it sound as if someone was killed by A RESTAURANT——not likely even in this screwed up world.

I’m betting that the skin color of most of the people in the place was from medium to dark brown.

Do you need to ask?

A few months ago, this same part of town got a new grocery store.

It was Big News because all the uh.. residents had to travel to the south part of town to get groceries.

Not two weeks ago it was robbed.

I guess the author meant the victim was standing by a restaurant when he got killed - which is technically correct, although badly phrased.

Yea it seems to be listed multiple ways:

Patrons ignore man killed by Tulsa restaurant

Associated Press - March 1, 2010 7:55 AM ET

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police say only one person in a parking lot full of people called 911 after a man was shot to death outside a Tulsa chicken restaurant.

I'm here in Tulsa. Yup. It was on the far North side, an area predominately people by attractive and successful African Americans.

Dear God, this is embarrassing.

The owner should have closed the restaurant until the emergency personnel finished their work.

“Killed by Tulsa Restaurant”

In favor of your headline, the word “by” can refer to agency, but it can also mean “next to.” He was standing by the Restaurant when he was killed.

It's a good thing, too, because the original headline was not only, as has already been pointed out, a grammatical abomination, it was also FACTUALLY incorrect in that if the patrons were "stepping over" the victim to get their food, then CLEARLY they were not IGNORING him. If they were ignoring him, they would have tripped over his body while trying to get their food.

This may seem a subtle or irrelevent point, but I think print reporters, who make their living with the written word, owe it to us readers to use both accurate and precise language when reporting a news stories.

The second headline is MUCH better.

;-)

I've been to several restaurants that almost killed me. But, it was the food, not gunfire.

I am aware that there are apathetic people in this country, but I never in my wildest dreams thought I would read about people stepping over a dead body in order to get their chicken. It is surreal. What kind of people are these????

What photo? I did not see any accompanying photos of anyone except the policeman in the video.

No one should be surprised at this. The "gangsta" culture does no value life but only what they can extract from it.
So, it only makes sense that the dead/dieing man had no value beyond what he may have had in his pocket.
After his pockets were emptied, he was nothing more than an impediment to the other patrons.

One question I have is why do these folks always seem to buy prepared food. Do they not know how to cook or is it just too much work?

This just goes to show-—— If you kill them, they will come.

I am so darn glad that I do not live anywhere near the jungles that so many of you live.

Buy a place in the country folks, and get the heck out of there.
