Let's not attack all reporters for this one funny.

As an Ear Guy, this made me laugh a lot.

Just to toss a bone to those too lazy to Google, here's what subby's talking about:

This is an isolated incident and in now way represents the vast majority of responsible journalists who shouldn't have their first amendment rights trampled on just to satisfy the bloodlust for mockery of the lame stream media

But other journalists should be all over this tedious fool for making the profession look like a crowd of venal lackwits.

Hey Subby, look up Andy Carvin and air-dropped mines, sometime. Because journalists do like getting it right.

Those are bullets and this the clip you load them in. The chain can also be used as a garrote. Confirmed.

And honestly, he was pretty much asking twitter to confirm they are/aren't rubber bullets. Internet sees someone ask question, tears guy a new one to keep him from ever asking internet a question again.

People are jerks.

The rubber bullets will keep getting fired until moral improves.

(Moderator, if this image is too graphic please make it a link.)


As far as I know, no one has confirmed the use of rubber bullets. I believe that welt is from a wooden baton round, which is a wood puck about the size and shape of a bathtub stopper. Several of those were found that night.

Heh.

When I wear them, they work so well that when someone talks to me I have to pull them out so I can hear them if they aren't shouting.  And that's a good thing.

How many can you put in there?  That looks like a high capacity magazine.  Why are there no laws against that?!
 
2014-08-19 08:16:46 AM  
Oh my god, I woke up with one of those in each ear!  The cops must have broke in and shot me in the middle of the night.  I'm guessing they used silencers.

I mean, he tweets 'Rubber bullets?' with a picture in the middle of a chaotic situation. His very next tweet is, 'sorry, my bad, those are earplugs.' And, the internet reacts like he wrote a front page story on being shot by rubber bullets that are actually earplugs.
/ cut the guy a break, he's been one of the better reporters in Ferguson.

Agreed. Let's attack them for years of awful report and just laugh extra hard due to this example.

Not only that...he never stated that they were...he asked if they were.

But that won't stop the gun boners little circle jerk.

Just a reminder, if you can't identify every conceivable part of every weapon ever made, your opinion on gun control doesn't count.

That's gun boner logic for you. Oh and cue a feinstein comment in 3,2,1...

Heh.

I've had the thought that someone should design a firearm and caliber combo that will accept Nerf gun magazines as a "Fark You" to Andrew Cuomo for the NY SAFE Act, which makes magazines with a capacity of over 10 rounds illegal.

Whaddya gonna do, Andy, arrest all the kids with an N-Strike?

The though process of the internet?
Step 1: Did someone make a mistake on the internet?
Yes - Proceed to step 2
Maybe - Proceed to step 2
Not really - Proceed to step 2
Step 2: Have they corrected their mistake?
Yes - Proceed to step 3
No - Proceed to step 3
Step 3: Gloat
