Epic FAILDude.

Ya know, it’s bad enough that a lot of people and most of the media despise police officers, but now they are going to give out money when one of us is shot? What the frak?

Reader Chris Kuhner sent me this, and after I was finished wrapping me head in duct tape, I had to ask myself a question:

Was this an honest mistake or a cruel, cruel joke? I’m guessing a little from Column A and a little from Column B.

    Kinda gives “bounty hunter” a new meaning, doesn’t it?

    WHAT?! Did you get the article that went with it? I’d be interested to read it. I wonder what kind of idiotic madness is afoot.

    It looks like the Star Ledger. Maybe it is an article about cops being rewarded if they are shot? (Compensation?)

    It probably refers to the establishment of a reward fund to pay people for info leading to the arrest of dirtbags who shoot cops. Poorly worded for sure, but I wouldn’t take it personally. Judging by the crap shoveled by the ignorant buffoons who staff most newspapers these days, it should come as no surprise. Apparently, they don’t bother to teach English in journalism shools any more. I don’t think math, economics, and logic aren’t on the curriculum either.

    That should have read “…are on the curriculum either.”

    I teach it to my journalism students. Really, I do. :)

    (Sorry, but I always feel the need to let folks know that some of us do teach.)

    Proof – Yeah, and I’ll be keeping my out for Boba Fett.

    RT – Not sure. Either way, the headline is a FAIL.

    John D – I didn’t take it personally, but I did think the headline was messed up. And that explanation made sense.

    RT – It’s rare, but it happens.

    GroovyVic – No chance!
