Six weeks before his violent death, Gough was reportedly one of a gang of men who sprayed Monteith, 32, in the eyes with ammonia and left him with a large gash across his face after a stabbing.

Classy guy.


his alleged attackers tracked the man's whereabouts using Facebook

Smart, too.

Facebook, where you put your personal private information so that people can easily destroy your life, for the sake of finding internet tits to motorboat.

This is a holdover from the old newspaper days, when copy was placed onto individual strips. Those strips would then be cut into a certain length and pasted onto the master page. This is where we get the "inverted pyramid." You put the most important information on the top of the article, then prioritize the least important stuff for the end. If anything needs to be cut for length, the reader won't really miss out on anything too vital to the story.

Paragraphs in newspaper articles are generally only one or two sentences long for that very reason. It makes it easier to cut for length. In the old days, when a copy editor needed to shorten a story, he'd just aim his shears at the bottom of the strip. Presto.

With the Internet, we don't have to worry about column lengths or space limitations. But old habits die hard. An entire industry of writers learned how to condense information into two-sentence chunks. That's a hard habit to break. You want a real laugh? Take somebody who's had AP style drilled into his skull and put him in a class that involves long-form essays.

If this article is also going into a print edition, it makes sense to have been written this way. Even with digital layout software, this is still the most pagination-friendly way to write an article.

Plus in J-school, we were taught to write for a seventh grade reading level. So that may also have something to do with it.

jesus. the wacky pants comment happened in June and the murder in December?

that is quite the long grudge to hold over something so ridiculously inconsequential.

The term wacky pants must have a more derogatory intent in England than it does in the U.S. Either that or the guy was really proud of his pants

Wacky pants wearer is one of the murderers subs but I guess your advice is still sound.

Murder is a strong word here.

Let's call it "the killing"

Agreed.
Wacky pants wearer was one of the the killingerers.

I suppose the trial is not done yet so we should probably call it 'alleged' or 'accused'.

Are you trying to kill me? I damn near had a asthma laughing.

a bar is a proper place for killing. Tiled floors and surfaces all wiped down more often than elsewhere.

but only if you put donovan on the jukebox

Wacky pants wearer was also beaten, sprayed in the eyes with ammonia, and slashed in the face.


This is a case where, if you apply the golden rule, the deceased is not a victim but a casualty of his own lifestyle. If was sprayed in the eyes with a caustic chemical while being slashed with knives, I would not hesitate to vote yes on the death penalty for the sprayers. QED we can't feel very much sympathy for the deceased.

On the other hand, the attackers also sprayed women with caustic chemicals on their way out the door. They should also be hung by the neck until dead after a fair trial. The revenge killing is just a corroborating detail at that point, reinforcing the need to hang people who engage in chemical attacks.

I bet their friends would probably profit from the object lesson and end the feud.

What is this "underwear" you speak of?

I'd post a pic but I'm at work.

The lesson to learn is to not comment on a British thug's wacky pants.

Wacky.

Daily Fail article said it was actually a girl the victim was friends with who originally commented on the wacky pants.

ongbok: The term wacky pants must have a more derogatory intent in England than it does in the U.S. Either that or the guy was really proud of his pants


Considering over there the term "spaz" is a withering insult from which the victim is unlikely to ever recover, where as "coont" is a friendly term of affection for your sweetie.

It sure does. Pants are underwear over there.

Or, don't hang out where there appears to be a gathering of mouth breathing douchebags. I have found that approach to be very successful in preventing violent episodes I would rather not have.
