Isn’t that nice. Even as they inform us he had a criminal record as long as his arm, they refer to him as a “young man.” Not a criminal, not a thug, not even as a White Hispanic.
But he’s still a “young man” to the headline writers.
(Suspect)’s troubled life ended Monday night, when NCCU police officers shot and killed him after they say he fired two shotgun blasts at them as they approached. Police were looking for him in connection with a burglary and armed robbery that had occurred earlier in the evening. Durham officials reported to NCCU police that a man matching his description was one of two suspects who had broken into a home near downtown.
Oh, his life was “troubled?” How about the lives of all the people he terrorized?
Sounds to me like he fell squarely into the “better off dead” category.
