Two good posts worth highlighting from Oswald Bastable:
He blogs on the Martinborough vigilantees and how the media reported a shot was fired between night patrol members and local youths:
Now they don’t bother to mention that this was 30 young thugs against 2 ‘vigilantes’.
This is in a town that has ONE policeman, with the nearest backup at least 15 minutes away. Backup that could deal with a mob of thirty is 45 minutes away- asuming they are not already tied up.
We owe these ‘vigilantes’ a debt of gratitude- they are actually dealing with a problem the police can’t/won’t touch.
Now I don’t necessairly agree with him on the night patrol, but the national media failed to report the very pertinent fact that it was 30 against two. Without blogs, we would not know this.
I also like his take on North Korea, based on Team America.Tags: Oswald Bastable
