BlueStar Posted March 18, 2009 Share Posted March 18, 2009 Are they getting worse? I'm used to just rolling my eyes at them and thinking people shouldn't get too worked up about the kind of stuff they spew out but recently... http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/4551/n5587349263635882798795.jpg http://www.thepickards.co.uk/index.php/200903/sunday-express-lashes-out-at-dunblane-survivors/ This was the front of the Scottish Daily Express the other day. They've basically waited till the kids who survived the Dunblane massacre hit 18 and trawled social networking sites to find out if any of them have been drinking, swearing or making rude gestures to the camera and spread them across the first three pages of the paper so it can accuse them of "shaming" their classmates who died. I mean, what the fuck? The Sunday Express can reveal how, on their web-based social networking sites, some of them have boasted about alcoholic binges and fights. For instance, [name removed] — who was hit by a single bullet and watched in horror as his classmates died — makes rude gestures in pictures he posted on his Bebo site, and boasts of drunken nights out. Oh no! A teenager who survived being shot by a madman actually acting like a teenager? Lock him up! On the plus side it's getting them investigated by the IPCC http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2009/mar/16/pcc-targets-sunday-express-over-dunblane-claims Peter Hitchens in the Daily Mail yesterday, saying that women who get raped after drinking deserve less sympathy and are "culpable, just as she would be culpable if she crashed a car and injured someone while drunk, or stepped out into the traffic while drunk and was run over." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-1045954/PETER-HITCHENS-How-Left-censored-blindingly-obvious-truth-rape.html Really thought I was past being even the slightest bit bothered by this kind of thing.
