Want to make people think accidental shootings of kids is a far worse problem? Easy:
And in a fairly disgusting way.
New research from a gun control group backed by former Mayor Michael
Bloomberg finds the federal government is underestimating the number of
children killed in unintentional firearm deaths.
Sounds terrible, doesn't it? And why would the cops do such a thing?
Well, they don't:
The report finds that local and state coroners and medical examiners tend to err toward classifying deaths as intentional homicides when intent is unclear, thus underreporting unintended shootings.
“Our analysis confirms that the official data significantly
undercount the scale of the phenomenon,” according to the report,
entitled “Innocents Lost.”
As Miguel says
Wait..what? These are the same idiots that
have been screaming about how awful is that accidental shootings are
called that instead of having Law Enforcement/ District Attorney press
charges, but when they are tagged as intentional homicides they complain
Whatever makes things look worse, so they can dance in the blood and shriek.
