Unrepresentative Sample

|

As some of you may know, the great state of Wisconsin (may it be reduced to cheesy ruin) recently suffered a great tragedy. News such as this often generates a great deal of discussion in the community. Your ever-vigilant blogger noticed a number of ridiculous statements being uttered regarding this incident.

Notice to the Clueless:

- People do NOT kill 6 people because they happen to be of Hmong descent. This is a poor excuse to spout off about Hmong criminals your friend's cousin's wife's brother heard about once. Stop immediately.

- People do NOT kill 6 people because they have an "assault weapon". This is a poor excuse to spout off about gun control laws. Stop immediately.

- People do NOT kill 6 people because it is perfectly legal. This is a poor excuse to spout off about new and reformed laws to take care of the problem. Stop immediately.

Bensbane.net thanks you for resisting knee-jerk reactions and sticking to the facts. Unless it involves Wisconsin. Stupid cheese-heads.
