OC Rampage Shooting Leaves 3 Dead, 3 Injured

The rampage began just as the morning commute was getting underway.

Over the course of about an hour, authorities say, a 20-year-old college student killed a woman at his Ladera Ranch home and embarked on a string of shootings that stretched through the heart of Orange County, targeting random people during their morning routines.

He carjacked a truck at a gas station, police said, then executed a businessman and stole his BMW. A few minutes later, he killed a plumber and took a work truck. He shot indiscriminately at morning commuters on the 55 Freeway, hitting at least three cars.

In the end, authorities say the gunman killed three people and wounded three others before fatally turning his gun on himself.

1. I find some of the wording curious

Putting the WTF-ness of yet another shooting spree aside, what lept out at me is the buisnessman was executed and his BMW was stolen. But the plumber was killed and his work truck taken.That plumber just isn't in the same class as that businessman.

4. I have insomnia too.

And I really don't feel like watching TV or paying bills, so i decided to cruise DU looking for classist language in news articles.

The 40-mph winds and pounding rain are doing their part to keep me awake too.
