Machine Gun Stickup
The lamestream media told you:
An armored car heist in Phoenix was committed using automatic weapons. An unknown amount of cash was stolen, and police are looking for the suspects. Not shots were fired during the robbery.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Gun enthusiasts immediately suspected a rat when the media brazenly reported the use of automatic weapons in a crime. Machine guns typically cost $10,000 or more, are severely restricted by the FBI, individually recorded and tracked, and are the domain mainly of world-class collectors and specialists. They are more rare in street crime than cash in a congressman's freezer.
"No shots were fired" lead many to question why the phrase "automatic weapons" was even used. Authorities apparently gave the phrase to the reporter, who simply parroted what was said without any research or reporter curiosity. No charges have been filed against the reporter.
Several days later, the followup story claimed that automatic OR semiautomatic weapons MAY have been used, and suspects were in custody, increasing skepticism in those parts of the community that are awake.
Today (July 28), the headline says "Toy rifles aided three in heist," and Bosnia-Herzegovina natives were the apparent culprits. "Fake AK-47 assault rifles" were used in combination with pepper spray. I am not making this up.
According to the report, toy fakes can be scary sounding "assault rifles." The money has been recovered. No correction has been issued. The reporter is still at large.
