This post was deleted for the following reason: this is crappy terrible news but is there anything here besides an outragefilter post? Two short news articles on crazy people behaving badly doesn't give people much to discuss other than "wow people suck" -- jessamyn

1. Just as there was more to Those Other Two Threads than just outrage at the tragic events detailed in the few thin articles linked (more than "fuck the Right," even), so too is there more to this
--certainly enough to sustain a serious discussion. Granted, a discussion of the Minutemen might necessitate the quick deletion of some Mike Watt jokes. So be it.
2. To read a headline like "Three Minutemen arrested for robbery/slaying of a Mexican-American and his nine-year-old daughter" only to summarize it as "crazy people behaving badly" not only trivializes the issue, but is disgustingly flippant and callous besides.
