Short and sweet.

There should be a medal of some sort for those willing to risk their lives by stopping an armed robbery.

Glad to see the miscreant got his just reward but notice how it's OK to emphasize he was white. Had he been black, the story would have probably not even made the news.

Once upon a time a drug-addled buffoon entered a drug store carrying a gun and announced a holdup. Somebody shot him dead and they all lived happily ever after.

They made it 21 words into the article before they let us know he was white. I think they were trying to hide something. /s

Even our state university's mascot carries a gun.

“Prescription filled.”

How many milligrams of lead in the recommended prescription?

“A man is dead after attempting to rob an Elm Grove pharmacy at about 5 p.m. Friday.”

Just “A man”???

How about rewriting it as

“A robbery suspect, whom we will report as being a white man since mentioning anything else would be un-PC and racist, is dead after attempting to rob an Elm Grove pharmacy at about 5:00 p.m. Friday.”

Lead is often prescribed in 124gr or 230gr increments ... to be injected at high velocity repeatedly until perpetration ceases.

Do the remaining 5% commit a disproportionate number of crimes?

Do the remaining 5% commit or does the remaining 5% commit? It's still too early in the morning for the grammar part of my brain to be awake.
