Don't Fault The Air Marshal For Doing His Job

My take on the air marshal shooting of a deranged man down here in Miami? Take your medication, don't make bomb threats and reach in your bag when someone has a gun drawn on you.

Sickeningly the local news has the animated title of "Mayhem in MIA" when they report on this story. They are emphasizing how the man's wife warned the marshals of the man's mental illness, and conducting the obligatory interviews of the man's neighbors, who of course, are shocked. It seems the local media has decided to use this incident as a means to showcase themselves on the national stage, adding all the drama possible and essentially turning what would have been an unfortunate incident into a national tragedy in their quest for higher ratings.

I wonder how long 'till the ACLU gets involved.
