I was looking for the raw footage of the eight-year-girl taking part in social-IQ-vetting-Darwinism when I stumbled upon a hysterical writer..
Here is clip related to the news item if you haven’t seen it yet. Note that this is labeled as being “raw video” and “full” … it ISN’T and it DEFINITELY ISN’T.
Youtube auto-links to related videos if you want to see a news story for further info or if you would like to see that clip enhanced, zoomed or in slow-mo (if you do you’ll see the weapon point stage left, directly at the doomed moron, in the last ~tenth of a second).
Something Awful frequently used to post the more gruesome videos not found on YouTube or … as if YouTube is some bastion of good taste or something, but seriously there are other sites out there (I hate to say it and will not backlink to it, but World Star Hip-Hop is one of them…) that can give the good journalist insight into a developing story by posting pictures/video/audio that are unquestionably horrid, upsetting, gruesome et. al. …but as the Fourth Estate, it is my duty to look at things even MY READERS would find disturbing, the same way a cop or a medical examiner combs through a murder-suicide … I don’t want to see a guy take a NATO round in the head from a little girl…but if the video is available, I have a responsibility to watch it in order to process the the magnitude and gravity of an ongoing, developing news story that ALSO ties into ongoing, developing historical elements, such as The 2nd Amendment, teens and guns, kids and guns, The South and guns, gun-nuts and guns, conspiracy-theorists and guns, liberals and guns, school shootings and guns, media violence and guns,….guns guns, guns!!!!
Following an exhaustive 30 seconds of online research I found that whomever shot the video [on their iPhone] subsequently turned it over to the local sheriff, who, in-turn, released the video to the media with an edit[cut] point a moment before the weapon fired.
PERHAPS the full video will leak out at some point.
During this research I stumbled upon a comedy article that is the very definition of cringe humor. Josh Boruff is offensive, depraved, sick, nasty, funny as fuck and exactly the kind of writer that deserves a free plug and a GLOWING review on my site. Funny shit. Not for everybody. Love it. Enjoy.

***SpamWar update: 48 hours…1191 comments, I’ll be thrilled if one percent are legit…seriously….looking for 12 people who wrote “I read your article about the death of music and have determined that you are a retarded, godless, sickening freak-troll and I hope the next car that hits you finishes the job (by that I mean you dying), sincerely etc etc…” See in this comment you can tell the reader has not only read the ARTICLE, but that he/she has also read enough to know a li’l bit about me! I would post that comment unedited and thank them for visiting. “I really like your site! This is the kind of content I have been looking all over the internet for. I added you to my blogroll, my rss feed and have told all my friends to do the same. Outstanding work!!!” Best Regards, MyShittyApplianceRepairBusinessInNorthCarolina.com….this is what bogs me down here…*sigh*…so I decided to post FIRST before I delve into the shitpile***. -T
