If it's true, it's horrible

The big story this evening is that a 20 year-old volunteer for the McCain/Palin campaign was beaten and robbed by a 6' 4" black Obama supporter. He then carved a "B" into her cheek with a knife.

The only thing that keeps me from being fully outraged about this is the fact that the "B" is carved into her cheek backwards. Either the attacker is illiterate, or the victim did this herself in the mirror and didn't pay attention to what she was doing. Then again, did she punch herself too? Bottom line is that I will withhold final judgment until more about this incident can be verified.

Good Day to You, Sir

The 'B' could be upside down, not backwards.

My initial thought was, "it would have taken more than one person to carve someone like that" (or would it?). This thought made me question the authenticity. On the other hand, she could have been unconscious when it happened.

Oh, and the media will pick this up as a national story only if it was faked. Otherwise, they will brush it under the rug.

I agree. The B would be right side instead of backward. It looks as though she did it in a mirror. Sorry.

It screams "phony."
