Cincinnati is known as a polite city.  While most of the country says “Excuse me?” when they wish to have something repeated, Cincinnati says “Please?“.

I think that’s why this news story got messed up.

Of course, the situation was messed up to start with.  An altercation, a man turning on a policeman while both were armed, guy pulls his gun on the cop, and gets hit seven times.  And lives.  Sad, happy, and lots of questions.

But I love the reporting on the story.  Tia, the mother of the shootee, has a question: “I want to understand why is this happening.”  And then . . .

I’m sorry – who is making that claim?  Please?
