    no.

    do you see it as acceptable for a grown man to chase down a teenager and after possibly a scuffle to kill him? for no apparent reason to begin with?

    So you go right to your conservative nihilism and blame the media. I never knew posting the original post would be so well-supported by all three of you so easily.

    Of course you wouldn't.

    Whether I find that acceptable or not is completely irrelevant to the point of me questioning the media. But if that is all you believe happened than it does point out how pathetic the media is.

    I'll give you credit for setting up the thread so that you can say any explanation or attempt to define a position can be countered by.. "See I told you so". But as Sirdowski said, what's the point of the thread if you're not actually going to discuss anything.

Of these lesser varieties, there’s fear (“Troglodytes!” ), mockery (“Irrelevant troglodytes!” ), condescension (“I had to explain to them they’re troglodytes.” ), bewilderment (“Why don’t they understand they’re troglodytes?” ), astonishment (Dear God, they’re not all troglodytes!” ), and a few combinations of all the above."

    Re: Conservative Nihilism

    From the DSM-IV ....

    Narcissistic Personality Disorder

    Symptoms

    The symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder revolve around a pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and sense of entitlement. Often individuals feel overly important and will exaggerate achievements and will accept, and often demand, praise and admiration despite worthy achievements. They may be overwhelmed with fantasies involving unlimited success, power, love, or beauty and feel that they can only be understood by others who are, like them, superior in some aspect of life.

    There is a sense of entitlement, of being more deserving than others based solely on their superiority. These symptoms, however, are a result of an underlying sense of inferiority and are often seen as overcompensation. Because of this, they are often envious and even angry of others who have more, receive more respect or attention, or otherwise steal away the spotlight.
    Sounds familiar .....
