It must be a slow newsday to get people all hepped up over Rebecca Aguilar's questioning of a man who has killed two intruders at his business over the past few weeks.
This is such a big story that Glenn Reynolds was able to hold forth for more than his usual one sentence and a Heh:
I was struck by reporter Rebecca Aguilar's body-language, literally standing over him in judgment with tailored suit and umbrella. The way she looked down, literally and figuratively, on an old man who had defended his life, entirely legally, and reduced him to tears seems to me to be representative of the worst stereotypes of Old Media. Then, when she belatedly realizes that she's coming across like a bully -- because, you know, she is -- she retreats into faux-sympathy and the laughable claim that she's just helping him get his side of the story out. It's like something out of a local-tv parody on The Simpsons. Yet her webpage suggests that she's on the side of the "little guy."
Reynolds is so moved/excited/outraged/turgid possibly because James Walton just had two opportunities to live out Reynold's favorite fantasy, or at least the one that doesn't involve Dr. Helen dressing up like C3PO.
Dan Riehl writes...oh, who cares what Dan Riehl writes? He's an idiot. Judging by the reaction to this story, it looks like Aguilar's biggest crime is asking questions while brown.... Cue Michelle Malkin.
And if you're going to ask questions, at least be white and professional about it
