We have the same problem here in the UK - this old granny got minced beneath the wheels of a speeding truck the other day and the media never once
mentioned that the vehicle was ok - there was no
scuffed paintwork (not that you'd know from the relentlessly negative coverage).
To be fair there was a small bit of coverage about the fact that she was 90 but they never mentioned that her useless life was almost over anyway and one station actually had the effrontery to suggest that some blame might rest with the driver ! Not one single mention
of the effort he had to go to in order to try to avoid capture by the Police, AND
the extra expense of all that gas, not to mention the resulting trauma of the subsequent trial and press coverage. Both very stressful occurrences.
And that's before we even get to the drain on the resources of the National health service, more trauma for the paramedics - and what about the children for God's sake ? They had to witness this old bat getting pasted beneath the wheels. Who speaks for them ?
I mean wtf - this guy even gave up his own leisure time
(when he could have been drinking some more) in order to actually help
the police with their enquiries - and why ?
Because some old biddy flings herself in front of his truck in a mindblowingly incomprehensible act of selfishness.
Sick, just sick.
