Don't the HIPPA laws prohibit the release of information as to medical conditions? What's this shot from behind stuff? If a tax paying citizen gets shot in the arse it's not the business of the media to let everyone know. It might hurt one's street cred.

But, if we can report on this, why can't we report on who ends up paying the medical costs? I think three (or more) gunshot wounds would be expensive to treat and the ongoing care is also expensive. Who's health care plan is going to get hit and how much will it cost? I think this should be common knowledge, not details about the actual wounding. Shot from behind is demeaning to the shooter and to the shootee.
