The Uninvited Ombudsman Report – No. 37

Taken from the most recent “Page Nine” Alan Korwin’s “The uninvited Ombudsman Report”

1- Gun Saves Lives

The lamestream media told you:
"Gunman thrown out of school, police say," and "Megachurches expand use of security forces," according to Associated Press headlines on Dec. 11, reporting on a murderer who died while shooting up a church in Colorado.

The murderer's age, background, writings, photographs, history and other personal details have been featured in "news" casts nationwide for days. News reports highlighting heinous criminal activity by misfits seeking notoriety have never been proven to inspire copycat behavior, according to news-media experts.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
"CCW-Permit Holder Shoots Murderer, Saves Lives," is a Page Nine corrected headline, changing the earlier phrase "Kills Murderer," now that news reports suggest the perpetrator may have killed himself after being repeatedly shot by a civilian.

Terrified of suggesting that a private citizen volunteer may have stopped a murderer, which could encourage similar copycat behavior amongst the public, national media outlets universally reported that a security guard defended a megachurch in Colorado this week.

CNN in particular bent over backwards to imply that only "authorities" or "officials" acted, could act, should act or would act and to downplay that a private civilian CCW-permit holder was once again a deterrent against an armed sociopath. News professionals refer to this as balanced, unbiased reporting. No ethics violations have been filed.

Late breaking reports, which kept changing, now say the murderer killed himself, after being shot "multiple times" by Jeanne Assam, 42, the attractive blonde female volunteer with the CCW permit. Images of the murderer seemed to outnumber images of Assam by at least 10 to 1, for unknown reasons.

The media has a stunning blonde hero with a gun yet decides to use scanned, panned, cropped, grainy black-and-white images of a dead murderer instead. How does that decision get made -- the same way -- by every news outlet in the country?

Experts note it is impossible for an autopsy to discover a self-inflicted suicide without at least identifying how many times and where the perp had been shot, facts which have not been reported yet. Reports indicated the perp was carrying anywhere from 40 to 1,000 rounds of ammunition, an indication of how hard it is to count ammo.

Rumors from cynics who claim mainstream reports will soon be changed to "Murderer kills self after being threatened by female," could not be confirmed at press time.

2- Deer Kill People

The lamestream media told you:
Deer hunting, a barbaric blood sport enjoyed by a decreasing number of fringe elements in society, is being opposed by PETA and other wildlife rights groups fighting for humane treatment of the adorable little Bambi-eyed harmless critters.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Frank Miniter, author of "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Hunting," points out an overlooked benefit of hunting -- the number of human lives saved by decreasing deer-herd sizes. Two hundred people die and 25,000 are hurt in deer-car smashups every year, a fact generally omitted from lamestream news. Miniter notes you are five times as likely to hit deer within city limits, because you cannot hunt deer populations in such areas.

Rarely mentioned in "news" reports, it is illegal to let any edible portion of harvested game go to waste. Much harvested game is used in poverty programs to feed the hungry.

4- Police Late Again

The lamestream media told you:
A 19-year old Nebraska man who wanted to, "go out in style," killed eight people and wounded five in an Omaha, Neb., shopping mall. He, "sprayed fire," on shoppers, according to reports, and shot up a teddy bear from his third floor perch. Details of his job at McDonalds, breakup with his girlfriend, family life and his lost puppy dog were featured by the Associated Press. No information about his gun appeared in initial reports, but will undoubtedly get coverage soon.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Police in full battle gear paraded around on camera for days after arriving too late to stop a madman who shot eight people to death in a shopping mall. None of the victims or witnesses returned fire from the mall which has "no guns allowed signs" to keep CCW permit-holders out.

After the murders, which experts note are strictly banned by law, the man killed himself, sparing the public an orgy of fawning news reports and a lengthy show trial.

Fulfilling the maniac's wishes, media outlets glorified the gunman with page-one coverage, macho phrases, direct quotes, images of helpless victims exiting under police watch with their hands raised once the incident ended, and intimate details about the shooter's family and background.

Although the event took place in Omaha, it ran in every major city in America, preempting news of other more likely, local and tragic deadly events that occur everywhere constantly. The media denies that this helps vilify guns, or that they would ever want to do such a thing. Mortality figures however do show that 300 people die daily from accidents, most of which could be prevented, a life-and-death fact rarely reported.

Though not specifically mentioned against the incessant footage of black-clad, riot-geared police, heavy with bullet-resistant armor, officers arrived at the scene when it was too late, which is routine. All of the victims were unarmed "for safety." It is not known how long it takes officers to don the heavy battle gear.

Paraphrasing a line from The Cartridge Family band, "Police don't draw their guns, they draw chalk lines when you're gone."

The recent Supreme Court case, Castle Rock v Gonzalez, unequivocally established that police have "no duty to protect" any given person or persons. The case is summarized here.

Officers arrived just six minutes after the first 911 call, when the shooting was over. According to leading experts, when seconds count, the police are just minutes away.
