One Raceless, Faceless, Nameless, Black Thug Gang Member Arrested, Two More to Go in Gut-Shooting of Raceless Woman in Grand Rapids
N.S.: Oddly, the current version of this story at WOOD.tv’s Web site claims that it was first published at 9:11 p.m. tonight, and updated at 11:03 P.M., yet the text does not vary a single word from the version that Reader-Researcher Grand Rapids Anonymous sent me at 6:51 p.m. tonight. And according to its URL, http://woodtv.com/2017/03/16/bcpd-arrests-man-involved-in-gr-shooting/, it was first published sometime on March 16th.
Either WOOD changed only the headline, someone changed something, and then changed it back, or someone fibbed. ‘Tis a puzzlement.
