(Mis)Counting the Casualties

Filed under: Crime,Dog Trainer — Patterico @ 12:02 am



A revealing correction in the L.A. Times:

May Day rally: An article in Friday’s Section A about the Los Angeles Police Department removing dozens of elite officers from immigration protest duty hours before a clash in MacArthur Park said the violence left 10 people injured. The known number at that point was 17, including seven officers.

Oh — they count too?

  1. The officers obviously injured each other in their frenzy to attack peaceful immigrants.

  2. Page 1 of California Section today says 30 people were “struck by police officers weilding batons and firing foam projectiles.” No mention at all of the officers that were injured. Do you think by tomorrow the injured will be up to 50?

  3. Yeah, but like suicide bombers and school shooters, they have to be mentioned separately. “Ten people and seven officers” would be the proper formulation.

  4. Liberals a whole bunch of troublesome wackos
