54. Per LBN rules, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED to alter the title when posting in LBN as Sgent did.
Edited on Thu Oct-15-09 12:08 PM by DRoseDARs
(Since sometime this morning, the thread has been moved from LBN to GD.) He didn't add new info, he altered the title to color the story in a way that would make people (who didn't and/or won't read the full article) think this shooting was about the bottle of water. The 62-year-old security person shot the guy in self-defense, regardless what the guy was or was not trying to steal.

Bottom line, someone tried to create false outrage where there shouldn't be.

Edit: Wait, what? This wasn't moved to GD, it was moved to ... Discuss Places Louisiana ? I don't think I've ever seen a LBN thread moved anywhere but GD. :shrug:
