DeathByGeekSquad: serial_crusher: Internet, good at identifying suspects.

The coverage of that shiat pisses me off.  During the actual chase, when all of the names were being tossed around on the radio, various news publications ran with the stories.  As soon as the names were cleared, they removed most traces from their sites - leaving the social media discussions.  What did those same glorious news publications do the following day?  Write stories about how dangerous social media is for acquiring information, and how the masses should follow respected journalists who vet their information.


Someone on this website actually wrote a book about the media doing this.

Andromeda: Well one thing's for sure, that kid's graffiti will now last longer than anything else he does in life.

When in Egypt, I was fascinated by the Victorian-Era (and once or twice even ancient Greek) graffiti you saw on the temples just because those who wrote them are long gone but their names are still there.  I feel the same when you randomly see it in old caves or what not- I don't think I would ever scrawl my name on anything, but I certainly understand the urge.

indarwinsshadow: Let's get this straight. A 15 year old "boy" cried all night because he defaced the temple of Luxor? Exactly, what kind of retard assholes are they raising in China.
I've lived 46 years. I've yet to meet any 15 year who ever regretted any kind of nasty sh*t they've done. Most 15 year olds should be drafted and made to serve military service for 3 years. They're not much good for anything else.. They're idiots.


You'd give 15-year-olds military weapons and live ammo?

unlikely: "The boy has known about it since Friday and cried all night. He has had to be moved around because reporters rushed to their house for interviews," the Modern Express reporter who talked with the parents told the Global Times. The father called on China's netizens to leave his son alone: "The kid has a good academic record, but is a little introverted. This is too much pressure for him to take."

He vandalized the temple at Luxor.

I don't care if his precious feelings are hurt, I think he should be sent back to Egypt for trial.
Maybe Egypt is really lenient on crimes against their cultural heritage.


came here to say this
the humor alone would be worth it

Stupid kid.  You don't use your full name when defacing legendary historic sites.  INITIALS, like on the bathroom stall.  Deserves what he gets.

Actually, we need more live targets..sooooooo.

I'm kidding. Actually, my son has been in cadets since he was 13. Best thing he did. He's now in Gr 12, and he's a master warrant officer (DSM). He's at Blackdown (Borden, Ontario) this summer, then taking police foundations at Niagra College. After that he transfers to RMC, Kingston to take the MPO (military police officer) program. He's a good guy, and will make a good cop.
15 year olds could probably benefit from the strict regime and discipline the miltary offers. I'd like to see a conscription program like they have in Switzerland. It would take the kids off the street, give them purpose and pride in this country. That's just me though.
