I thought that there was no way anything good could come of the story. But I am glad to report that I was wrong.
The mother of one of the little thugs turned his ass in as soon as she saw the video of her little terrorist in training on television. Mama literally dragged him to the police station and went on television here to apologize to the family of the victim.
"Cave's mother was distraught that her son was allegedly involved.
"I am so, so sorry for what he did," Carol Cave said. "He was not brought up like that and it was a senseless crime."
The two teens were caught on surveillance video at about 3 p.m. attacking Thuy Le from behind while the the older was taking a walk on the 400 block of Chelten Avenue in broad daylight.
A source told NBC Philadelphia that after the attack, the two teens went back home and played video games." [Source]
Where is daddy Cave?
Anywhoo, good for Ms. Cave. I hope that others will look at what she did and follow her lead in the future.
Finally, I see that MSNBC has apologized to Flipper Mitt for talking about his wonderful slogan which mirrors that of a certain "Christian" organization from back in the day.
"MSNBC has apologized to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign for airing a segment that connected Romney's use of the expression "Keep America American" to the Klu Klux Klan.
"During the 11AM hour on MSNBC, we reported on a blog item that compared a phrase used by the Romney campaign to one used by the KKK in the 1920s," Chris Matthews said on Wednesday. "It was irresponsible and incendiary of us to do this and showed an appalling lack of judgment. We apologize, we really do, to the Romney campaign."
The aforementioned segment was anchored by Thomas Roberts.
"So you may not hear Mitt Romney say 'Keep America American' anymore,' " Roberts said in his report. "That's because it was a rallying cry for the KKK group, and intimidation against blacks, gays and Jews. The Progressive American blog was the first to catch on to that." (Roberts also apologized on Thursday.)
A Romney campaign spokeswoman told the New York Times that it accepted MSNBC's apology: "We are pleased they have issued a correction and apology. That was the right thing to do."
According to Mediaite, MSNBC executives were furious over the handling of the segment.
"NBC News President Steve Capus addressed this story this morning at an editorial meeting, and stressed the need for accuracy, fairness, and caution before proceeding," Mediaite reported.
And, as Mike Krumboltz noted on Yahoo's Upshot, it's hard to tell from the Romney campaign ad highlighted by Americablog if the former Massachussetts governor is saying "Keep America America" or "Keep America American."
Will someone please tell me why MSNBC apologized?
