Sun Times News Group - One Voice - No Message - Lottsa Bananas!

'I am the Sun Times News Group - be quiet; Talk through the Hand!'

I heard that there was a huge purge at the Daily Southtown that would have made Joe Stalin's mustache fall out. Something like thirty one (31) of the very best veteran editors and staff writers were launched by Cyrus 'The Big Banana' Friedheim's fiat. In order to give one voice - a radical Leftist one at that - to his Propaganda Machine? Capitalist Comstraints? Changes in the Moon?

BTW- STNG lost huge in the 3rd Quarter ( roughly the time frame of the July 15th Manifesto)- Get This:

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sun-Times Media Group, Inc. (NYSE: SVN - News) today reported a loss from continuing operations in the third quarter ended September 30, 2007, of $194.0 million, or $2.41 per basic share, versus a loss of $34.9 million, or $0.43 per basic share in the same period in 2006.

Today's frontpage of the Sun Times glares out about Kanye West's Mom's passing. Sorry for your loss, but Front Page? Then Comrade Reed continues Day Two of this week with the continuation of Sun Time News Group (STNG) Campaign to Demoralize the Chicago Police to the point of . . .? No return?

Here's La Pasionaria's opening salvo -

'When a police officer shoots a civilian, who should investigate? And how soon afterward can anyone conclude that the use of excessive force was justified?' (Click my post title for Cheryl Reed's whole bowl of bananas!)

Ok - that baits the question and swallows the bait - according to Reed, Police only shoot civilians - unless of course they are shooting other policemen/Police shoot people called civilians/ Police shoot people willy-nilly whom we call civilians/civilians are the targets of Police/ and on and on . . .

Here's what Wkipedia says about civilians - pretty nice - but go to the part that I have emboldened.

A civilian under international humanitarian law is a person who is not a member of his or her country's armed forces. The term is also often used colloquially to refer to people who are not members of a particular profession or occupation, especially by law enforcement agencies, which often use rank structures similar to those of military units.

The ICRC 1958 Commentary on IV Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War Article 4.4 states that "[e]very person in enemy hands must have some status under international law: he is either a prisoner of war and, as such, covered by the Third Convention, a civilian covered by the Fourth Convention, or again, a member of the medical personnel of the armed forces who is covered by the First Convention. There is no intermediate status; nobody in enemy hands can be outside the law. We feel that this is a satisfactory solution – not only satisfying to the mind, but also, and above all, satisfactory from the humanitarian point of view."[1] The ICRC has expressed the opinion that "If civilians directly engage in hostilities, they are considered 'unlawful' or 'unprivileged' combatants or belligerents (the treaties of humanitarian law do not expressly contain these terms). They may be prosecuted under the domestic law of the detaining state for such action".[2

Civilians directly engage in hostilities - like shooting up a house at 76th & Aberdeen last week and killing a remarkable young man named Steve Lyons. The Sun Times offered no opinion on the death of Steve Lyons, because he was killed by gangbangers and his murder will not reap a windfall for Loevy's Lawsuit Lotto League of Lawyers or give U of C Prof Craig Futterman more cash to conduct self-fulfilling prophecies of Police Misconduct. Kanye West's Mom died - it appears - of an accident in surgery. Sad. Front Page? One Voice! No Message.

It makes a simple guy like me wonder - Are The Lawyers making all the money off of my tax dollars by suing the Police Sun Times News Group (STNG) Investors? Are they Shareholders? They get one hell of a lot of coverage.

The guy who paid off South American death squads and scooped up the STNG, Cyrus Friedheim purged the staff at Daily Southtown Tally Me Bananas!

No opinions - one voice.

Hey, why are Chicago Police Officers and their families and friends buying the Chicago Sun Times? Let's Get Into It!
