For Alleged Reporter Levi Pulkinnen at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, There are No Black Murderers of Whites, Only Accused Ones

I just noticed something in the article I re-posted on Billy Chambers, the murderer of Ed “Tuba Man” McMichael, in the previous item.

Before McMichael's Oct. 25, 2008, beating, the group of teens had joined other youths at Seattle Center for a gathering related to a homecoming dance. McMichael was near a bus stop in the 500 block of Mercer Street when the accused teen and several others started beating him. One punched him so hard, the musician fell and hit his head on the concrete, police said.

Chambers was convicted and sentenced in April, 2009 for killing Ed McMichael. When Chambers was convicted, he stopped being “the accused teen.”

Apparently, for Pulkinnen, there are no black killers of whites, only “the accused.” Maybe that’s why the accused newspaper, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, now exists only in cyberspace.

By the way, if you go to the Seattle Times article on the sentencing of Billy Chambers and Tuba Man’s other two killers, you will be informed, “No comments have been posted to this article.” However, if you hit the link to “comments,” you’ll find 269. 269=0? It’s the New New Math.

P.S. The Seattle P.-I. version of Levi Pulkinnen’s October 14 story also states that it has “0” comments, but if you hit the comments link, you’ll find 58, as of 3:57 a.m.

It’s a funny old cyberworld!
