Further demonstration as to why you thought that Fairleigh Dickinson University was credible.
I'm thinking you likely got turned down by Fairleigh Dickenson.

Its not the toughest to get into but still they reject half the applicants.

I'm thinking since your hero Christine O'Donnell (witch lady Tea Party Candidate) graduated there that you think all grads are that f*cking stupid.

You do realize that at least one of the shots to the arm could have been while running away. That could easily be interpreted as being shot in the back.
Of course, you have already decided.
The graze shot in the arm could go either way, inconclusive. Being all the other shots were frontal, I would bet the one in the arm was also.

Ya know? The should open a voter registration table at the makeshift memorial. That would make everyone feel good and stop rioting. LOL

You didn't think your way through that post eh.

A curtain or drop cloth would have been nice eh? Since the area couldn't be cordoned off due to it's other entrances being cordoned off for years as way to keep the natives penned up amongst their own kind.

Did you know that many of the roads there had concrete barriers?

Well__as I always say__ya can't fk up step 2 before ya fk up step 1.

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says officers warned a suspect multiple times to put down his weapon before they shot and killed him.

The shooting happened around 1 p.m. Tuesday at McLaran and Riverview. Police say the suspect tried to rob the Six Star Market convenience store with a knife. Chief Sam Dotson said the store owner let the man leave the store. A St. Louis City Alderwomam witnessed the man walking erratically around and called police.

When officers arrived, the suspect refused to put down weapon despite multiple verbal command by police. Chief Sam Dotson says the man yelled at officers “shoot me now” several times. Witnesses also confirmed what the man said.

Dotson says the man continued to refuse the officer’s commands, approached within three to four feet of them with the knife in an attack posture.

Both officers opened fire on the suspect killing him. No officers were injured.

Seven Surveys Make A Trend For Fox And Viewers
Blog ››› November 22, 2011 1:35 PM EST ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

The release yesterday of yet another survey indicating the more you watch Fox News the less they know, has once again shone a spotlight on one of the unique features that defines Rupert Murdoch's cable news outlet - it is very, very good at misinforming people. And it's very bad at reporting the news.

In other words: Propaganda? Yes. News? Not so much.

It's true that the most recent survey, conducted by Fairleigh Dickinson University, only polled adults in New Jersey and doesn't represent national indictment against Fox. Nonetheless, the findings created a media stir because they reinforce what pollsters and academics previously discovered; that one of the country's all-news channels consistently leaves viewers less informed.

What's stunning is how many different areas of the news and public policy Fox viewers are misinformed about. For instance, the Fairleigh Dickinson survey asked viewers about recent grassroots uprisings in Arab nations [emphasis added]:

For example, people who watch Fox News, the most popular of the 24-hour cable news networks, are 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government than those who watch no news at all..... Fox News watchers are also 6-points less likely to know that Syrians have not yet overthrown their government than those who watch no news.

That just means we can add the Arab Spring to the laundry list of issues Fox fans are less knowledgeable about. Here are some previously documented examples.

Jon Stewart says those who watch Fox News are the "most consistently misinformed media viewers"
False
Share this story:

EDITOR'S NOTE: On the June 21, 2011, edition of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart accepted our False verdict and apologized, saying, "I defer to (PolitiFact's) judgment and apologize for my mistake. To not do so would be irresponsible."

On the June 19, 2011, edition of Fox News Sunday, comedian Jon Stewart -- host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central -- sat down for an interview with Chris Wallace. Many readers asked us to review one of his claims.

"Who are the most consistently misinformed media viewers?" Stewart asked Wallace. "The most consistently misinformed? Fox, Fox viewers, consistently, every poll."

Wallace didn’t challenge Stewart’s assertion that Fox -- widely perceived as a conservative-leaning network -- produced more misinformed viewers. But we thought it was an assessment worth checking.

We found two polling organizations that have produced periodic "knowledge" surveys differentiated by the respondent’s frequent news sources. One is the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, and the other is worldpublicopinion.org , a project managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland
