Atlanta blogs today: Boortz berates Virginia Tech shooting victims April 18 2007
The Fulton County District Attorney is investigating a police shooting of two unarmed brothers in Fulton, Georgia on Sunday. Yes, this is the same District Attorney who chalked up a police shooting of a 92 year old woman as "another tragedy involving drugs."
— TChris from TalkLeft.com on the Sunday morning shooting by Fulton County police of brothers Ron and Roy Pettaway. Fulton County police have confirmed that the two men were not armed.
How far have we advanced in the wussification of America? I am now under ?attack by the left for wondering aloud why these students did so little to ?defend themselves. It seems that standing in terror waiting for your turn ?to be executed was the right thing to do, and any questions as to why 25 ?students didn't try to rush and overpower Cho Seung-Hui are just examples of ?right wing maniacal bias. Surrender — comply — adjust. The doctrine of ?the left.
— Neal Boortz, explaining that unarmed college students who don't team up to rush armed attackers are, in practice, spineless leftists. Silly me, I just thought they were innocent victims.
There were many other injured, all of whom were taken to one of the three trauma centers located within 27 miles of the campus. Had this tragedy occured in Georgia, weâ€™d have prayed to be so fortunate. There are no trauma centers located close to the University of Georgia campus in Athens. There are none located close to Valdosta State University in Valdosta. There are no trauma hospitals close to Georgia Southern University in Statesboro.
— Seth Millican at Peach Pundit on Georgia's relative lack of trauma hospitals. Millican states that Georgia's death rate from trauma exceeds the national average by 20 percent.
