Let’s be incendiary, shall we?

It’s been toned down from earlier versions of the story.   The first  headline I saw on this AP story read “10 injured in nursery school shooting”.

Never mind that no children were involved; it was near a nursery school, not in; and no children were hurt.  Never mind that:

Five of the 10 injured received light wounds, and the others suffered even less significant injuries, said Raphaelle Padovani, a press spokesperson for the regional prefecture said. The injured were being treated.”

How does one suffer a “less significant injury” than a light wound???

Subsequent headlines in other papers toned down the scare, but almost all are calling it a “Nursery School Shooting”.

Give me a flippin’ break.
