identifying weapons in crimes

Rate this topic

20 posts in this topic

why is it that whenever a gun is used in a crime the media reports it as a specific make and model. i.e. track palin was arrested for domestic violence and tried to kill himself with an ar15. but you never hear the make and model of a knife when a crime is committed. i wanna know that when someone is slashed, it was done using a henckels twin pro 8" santoku. all i ask for is fair reporting.

slashing victims often have the type of blade used against them reported in the story.

 

Box Cutter, etc.

yeah but if their gonna be specific with guns they should be specific with box cutters. its only fair to know a stanley model 304 cutter was used. i wanna know what model of box cutter to protest against.

I think they identify, box cutter, switch blade, machete,

when a bladed weapon is used,

 

I think it's fair to identify the sort of gun that is being brandished in a crime,

 

are you really upset by this?

Isn't a machete a tool?  Of course on the news "when stopped by the police he had a machete under his seat", sounds very ominous.

 

Peace
