Shooting at U.S. Capitol was a suicide, police say
I love their goofy euphemisms for “killed by police action”.
“The shooter has been neutralized.”
We all know what that means.
They need to find a new word such as “endeadened”, “rendered carbon neutral”, or even “decaffeinated”.
Yes, decaffeinated is much better!
“The shooter was decaffeinated by Capitol Police” sounds so much cleaner.
He was Latte’d!
He now has a “frothy head”.
You have to be careful when you order the Latte’ with a double shot.
I noticed the same thing. Why not just say, he’s dead.
I think they wiped that from the style guides a while ago. On TV, they usually say “passsed away”, like a peaceful slipping off into the great beyond no matter how violent the death.
My favorite use of that term was a carjacking gang member who “passed away” during a recent high speed shootout with the LAPD.
I should’ve read your post before writing. Good observation. I love the decaffeinated part.
“terminate with extreme unction”.
I hope he was an Obama voter. Until I know for sure I can’t say if this event calls for an RIP or a ROTFL.
ROTFL in Peace?
self-inflicted gunshot by neutralized subject: who talks like that? are they serious?
Does anyone know where Hillary was? I mean, really know?
