    I'm interested in why the local news hasn't reported on the death of that man??
    You're kidding???

    It goes against the cause, and why would the paper hurt them?

    Also, the young blond girl alone in the picture was not being watched by her mom. My wife asked her if she was lost and a lady walked over from a meeting 150 away to check on her.



    Would you leave a five year old girl alone in the park? After when she saw where she was, she went back to the meeting.

    No way I can paraphrase and say it as well as Victor Davis Hanson:

    I saw videos of youths burning things in Oakland, but was told that it “was a small minority” and atypical of the protest. Not long ago I saw no clips of anyone spitting at black congresspeople wading into the Tea-Party demonstration, but was told they did and that it was typical of tens of thousands of racialists on the Mall.
    At what point does biased journalism become pure propaganda?

    My take from the posts

    so what, homeless people die.....
    no problems with drugs, drinking, public sex and using the park as a bathroom
    poor timing on his death, but we will go on
    the paper is ignoring them or posting them in a good light
    noticed in one of the posts someone stole over a $100 from the donation box. too funny!

    I've read every word. My point was simply that given the HT's past history of slanting stories and outright making up 'facts' to support their agenda, failing to report on a death 'for the cause' isn't surprising.
    The problems in America today are due to the people that work for a living now being outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

When I went to high school in bloomington (back when the town was still somewhat conservative), rumor had it that the police could not even enter the park to arrest you for selling or using drugs, but rather had to get you leaving the park and even then as long as you weren't in possession they were s.o.l.
    I spent many nights sleeping in that park, hanging at spaceport and garcias, white rabbit....oh, and the book store across the street that sold single cigarettes......nearly lost my virginity in the balcony at the von lee movie theater...man bloomington sucks now.

    I always thought Bloomington had a certain suck factor. I've been hanging out in the area off and on for the last 40 years. Did you know Monroe County has one of the lowest income levels in the state? Even with IU being there. The fratboys and girls drop in for a few years, dump off some cash, learn about sex, drugs, and Johnny Cougar...and move on, so it seems. I remember Bloomington before they damned up Salt Creek and make Lake Monroe...it sucked then too.

    It is in the local rag and the liberals are freaking out that they have been discovered.

    Also, watch TV tonight, those pesky Indianapolis reporters have be talking to people....................

    How can you call a cause of death before the tox screen is finished-----coverup?????

    In Bloomington? Say it ain't so.
