They don't mention the race of the burglars who took a pitt bull puppy, pointed a gun at a 4 year old, and gave a babysiter a beat down.


I bet they were Swedish.

Well, of course. Stealing the puppy is a no brainer.

If the 4 year old wanted to keep his puppy, he should've been carrying a gun, himself. :-/

Wow. I have only 10 articles left with the Des Moines Register. What the hell am I gonna do now?

Pit bull puppies do make the best meatballs.

What idiot gave a 4 year old a gun?

/Never threaten people who have guns.
//Even if they are just 4.
///Did the puppy have a gun too?
 
2013-03-29 02:15:20 AM
Seriously. Those idiots didn't know where the drugs were?

They were in the kids room, where all f'in drug dealer parents keep it.

And at least burn the house down...

The children's parents told police the intruders were likely people they knew and gave officers the names of several suspects, including reported gang members one of them met in the Polk County Jail.

wtf, how stupid are the police to tell the journalists this? And the journalists to print it? Why feed more gang activity with the repraisals that even victims will get for 'snitching'?

Exactly you racist! You should feel bad for knowing the truth and speaking it, we are SHOCKED!

We all know these guys were Asians. You know, the ones in those notorious 'calculus kiques' and 'geography gangs'. I see them constantly standing in large groups on street corners acting 'all semi viscous' throwing up representations of theorms and scientific amalgamous representations of physics problems...they always go 'YO CANINE! I HAVE THE CONSCIOUSNESS ALTERING KNOWLEDGE YOU SEEK!' and when I nervously walk away they yell "HEYCRACKA YOU MUST BELIEVE YOUR EUROPEAN HERITIGE TO BE SUPERIOR TO MINE!!"..

I didn't even know that was the definition of racist, thinking I was better... I'm Naive American..pretty sure everbody took a dump on us so that's kind of a strange insult..

Anyway, these large roving 'math gangs' really scare me when they approach me from behind a night and say "A! A MAIN! A, I B talkin to you... you got a calculator?" And then they proceed to show me how I is actuallu -1 in the imaginary number set and that A is way to get me to pause long enough to educate me on how A plus B are on the wrong side of the whole equation here, being the primary coefficient...

Of course we'd never talk about the real problem with the country, like how 7 percent of the population is responsible for 62 percent of the crime.. We might get sued by their lawyers..

Um, this line:

They pointed guns at him and one of the men asked the victim where the drugs were, police reports show. The victim said he didn't know.

... pretty much tells you they're white.  I mean, armed men looking to take a rival group's drugs in the middle of meth country?  Definitely trailer-level stuff there.

In Des Moines?  Whites, yeah, but also Africans (American and otherwise), lots of SE Asians (bunches of people ended up in Iowa after the Vietnam War ended), a few Native Americans, lots and lots and lots of Hispanics...

Kepner-Tregoe decision making has a thing called "Adverse Consequence Analysis" but every story isn't a decision.  Fortunately, Kepner-Tregoe advocate not using their processes in full when decisions are smaller and simpler and problems are unimportant.  Thus we can skip the whole 20 minute committee meeting to decide if we should publish a story, just shoot it from the hip, yet still roll Adverse Consequence Analysis into the editing step.

To be clear:  You don't need a farking Decision Analysis about "Do I publish a story about robbers with guns?"

www.me.udel.edu

But your editors should be saying, "What possible consequences could occur for publishing this story?"

www.decision-making-confidence.com

Let's see... Primary consequences:  Witness testimony source becomes public.  100% because we have that.

Secondary consequences, hmm... well we have witness testimony in the article.  Witnesses are talking about gang members and drug dealers that they know from prison and have snitched to the cops about.

Potential Adverse Consequence:  Retaliation from drug gangs
Severity:  HIGH
Probability:  Medium-High

... oh holy HELL no, we can't publish that.  Somebody will farking die.  Edit that shiat out.  Put some bullshiat about how police have records for jail visits and are investigating these and other leads, that's technically true.
