I think the point gained is that when some event happens there are always those individuals who step forward and try to make something out of it. Some fabricate phony quotes, some claim some special knowledge or insight they do not possess just to drive their point across. These people are no better than the members of the Westboro Church who go out of their way to create controversy.

Some do so to muddy the water in case of an investigation. There are a lot of sick peope who will do things like this for their own reasons.

A woman called to repeat that to me the other night, making like it was all so profound. Yawn.

People have been screaming at the media to quit making hero’s out of the scumbags who commit these atrocities for years.
