More gooder better grammar ….

There was a shooting on Capitol Hill today.  (Wait – aren’t guns illegal in Washington D.C.?  Except in one’s OWN home, for protection only, and ONLY after a threat is present?????)

From a news report:

Schneider said the driver, who has yet to be identified, produced a gun once his car came to rest. And after failing to respond to commands, officers shot him.

Officers failed to respond to commands?  What is this world coming to?  And who did the officers shoot after they failed to respond to commands?

Or is it print reporters who haven’t a clue how to stick to proper grammar?

And I thought it amusing the “right to die” is not guaranteed.

The hell of being an editor, even if only part-time.
