So in a metropolitan area of 550,000 residents one or possibly two idiots paint swastikas on the Walnut Street Bridge Sunday morning. Naturally our local Pulitzer prize wannabes in the local media plastered it all over TV Sunday. And the TFP has it on the front page of the Region section yesterday.
Did it ever cross the mind of the local media this is exactly why low IQ individuals do this sort of thing. I am sure the perpetrator(s) have taped every news show and purchased every edition of yesterday's paper they can find.
I am certainly not saying it should not be reported but but no pictures. I believe everyone in town knows what a swastika looks like.
I am old enough to remember the streaker fad back in the 60s and 70s particularly at nationally televised football games. Eventually it dawned on the networks that if they didn't show the clowns on camera they had no incentive to streak. I would certainly cover their sentencing when they are captured. The fact that the Bridge crosses over WW ll Medal of Honor Recipient Charles Coolidge Park makes it an exceptionally egregious crime.
