A college student shooting that will never make the national media
It was lucky just to get this local coverage, because the good guy shot and won. Two armed invaders crash a party. Their conversation suggests the plan was to kill everyone after robbing them, but a student draws, drives one off and mortally wounds the other, who was preparing to rape a female student.
That really doesn't fit the desired narrative....
Hat tip to reader David McCleary... gad, look at the comments! A friend of the deceased thug is upset at the negative attitudes toward him.
But thanks to you, it'll be all over the blogosphere.

THANK GOD FOR REAL MEN!
(Not to say that a woman couldn't also have had a pretty little gun in her back pack. :-))

A shooting at Wesleyan University? How is this possible? Guns are prohibited there! Well, rest assured that the murderer has definitely endangered his academic standing.
I'm sure that will comfort the victim's family.

And the newspapers are wondering why their circulation continues to slide. Selective reporting is proving their downfall. Internet hits will continue to climb.

Just saw Robin Meade on CNN HLN Morning Express cover this story. Less coverage than wsbtv's article and probably just used their footage directly -- I didn't watch wsbtv's video. Just FYI...
