Tom Blumer of News Busters noticed an odd detail or two missing from the Toledo Blade's report on the incident. The fact that the word "Scab" was spray painted on the side of John King's SUV (other reports say scratched but the picture looks like it's been vandalized with spray paint) wasn't mentioned and neither was John King's name.
If you knew nothing else about the event and only relied on the Blade's story, you would think that what occurred was some kind of random act of violence:
Lambertville man shot in arm after man tries to slash his tires
A man was shot in the arm Wednesday night when he interrupted a suspect trying to puncture his vehicle’s tires with a knife, authorities said.
... When confronted, the assailant shot a small caliber pistol at the victim, grazing his left upper arm. The victim was treated at the scene and was to seek medical treatment on his own, sheriff's deputies said.
The suspect was described as being in his mid-20s to early 30s, white, of medium build, and about 6 feet tall. He was wearing a dark-colored T-shirt, jeans, and a dark-colored baseball hat.
He appeared to be in his mid-20s or early 30s.
Note that the victim was not named.
Check out the rest to see how the Blade tried to brush under the rug the motivation of the crime.
