    Id agree with the last sentiment. its still wrong. The mom has asked the question if race was a factor and some clearly want to attach it to it, but its not an issue in this case otherwise. Its poorly written because of that. Not trying to defend them, but you could argue that a fraction of the population do believe this was racially motivated, even without support for it. when "reporting", it gets a little gray in how you describe it. this article seems to take that minor view and pass it along as the popular view, thats the issue. adding the qualifier "some" in relation to those that think its racially motivated, would clarify and make it much more inline with reality.
    Found at bottom of article:
    Fox News’ Katherine Lam and the Associated Press contributed to this report.
    Just an FYI.

    True and I saw that, but thats not the same as citing a source or co-writer.

    "A contributor is a person who may have provided purely technical help or writing assistance or could be a department chair who provided only general support."

    when you say "it's tough to say who wrote what", im just pointing out that he wrote it. Hes responsible for it. theyd be listed as a co-writer or referenced/quoted as a source if their contributions were content.

    I believe it's poorly written for a number of reasons, not just the one reason you stated. It's like a couple of hacks put it together, perhaps while simultaneously doing shots of Wild Turkey 101.

    Id agree. Its poorly written and that was only one example. Im not particularly aware of Ryan Gaydos, whether he has split personalities or his drinking habits. :)
