    This story would make a good novel, if it hadn't actually happened:




    Expect to hear a lot more about this story in the near future.

    Disclaimer:

    This post is a News Story... What makes it on the news? Things that are not normal, exceptions, extreme examples or otherwise unexpected. If all you know about America comes from our media, you will think stories like this are the NORM, happen all the time, all over the US and they just pick the best ones for airing... and you would be wrong.

    Sorry to have interrupted.
    We now rejoin our regularly scheduled thread, already in progress:
    --------------------------------------------------

    I found this interesting...

    And in a bizarre coincidence, Pikes turns out to have been a first cousin of Mychal Bell, the lead defendant in the Jena 6 case.

    When that case was first picked up by our media, there was a horrible amount of false or misleading information being reported. I'm hoping this story is no different and our media eventually gets around to filling in the blanks, hopefully with accurate information.

    There just has to be more to it than whats being reported.... Otherwise not only is the cop who tazed Pikes to death deserving of a similar punishment, but the other cops there, who didn't stop it, are at the very least complicit in Pikes murder as well.

    Interested to see how this develops... Thanks PLC.

    Let's hope that this story is not the norm.:eek:

    And, should more information become available that would de sensationalize it, so much the better.

    But, it is an interesting story at this point, no?
