[url]http://apnews.excite.com/article/20030601/D7RD8HAG1.html[/url] What is the media’s obsession with dramatic descriptions of firearms? The pictures in these article show a few guys with M4s, the rest with their normal sidearm. Yet EVERY caption uses the adjective, “heavily armed.” Other descriptions such as, “heavily armored,” “uniformed,” “overweight,” “stern,” “thoughtful,” or many other would have applied. What is with the obsession?

Bad editing. The captions should read:
Heavily, armed officers...

Man, Cherokee Co has a bunch of fat bastards working for them. They all look like they just quit their jobs working at the mall and got jobs with the county.

I define "heavily armed" as carrying a mortar or another component of a squad served weapon. In the press' case, it sounds ominous. It also reminds me of the scene in the movie "Commando" when Arnold starts piling on the weapons when he lands on the island.

I hate the term 'heavily armed'. 'A heavily armed gunman robbed the 7-11. I suppose a lightly armed gunman robbed the drugstore next door? Sorta like 'Live Nude Dancers'. Does the club a block away feature DEAD nude dancers? Media Hype.

It's all a matter of economics. Many local PDs have found that buying donuts and McD's in bulk works out to be much cheaper than kevlar. It's eco-friendly "body armor" *and* it supports the local economy. [:D]

When did Fat Bastard make sergeant?

The two guys in black aren't that damned big... but the sergeant is obese. What are you guys? Fresh out of the Ranger Regiment to make this sort of call? Hehe Alex
