Boy distributing COP posters shot dead


I couldn't help notice this article in the Express.

Is this responsible reporting? Look at that title?

On seeing it, you would think this young man was killed WHILE handing out COP flyers.
You would initially think, well, it is some hooligan supporting another party that did it.

In fact, reading on... it seems to me he handed out flyers in the morning.
And was killed in the evening somewhere else, with the whole incident reading like some mistaken-identity gang incident.

This election could have done without this "sensational" headline. :|

I have no idea what the express trying to do in this election because the COP has distanced themselves from this man, and it says so in the article which express printed, I feel the Express just printing crap now shocking headlines to sell papers, their sales must be not coming in as they like so every day is one set of shock treatment for the public, when you start to read the article is another story :roll:

Looking again this article is right under it.
"Coudray campaign supporters attacked in Sando"


So is the Express now supporting the COP? I just think I detect a "leaning" in their stories.

Just to add...

I don't really like the tone of this article at all.

Regardless of WHY he was killed, his friends say he was distribution COP flyers.

They should spend less time saying they aren't sure, and more THANKING the kid, and possibly offering to attend his funeral or pay a call on his parents.

C'mon party for the youth.... :evil:
