    What?!?!?! They are calling the shooter the "victim?"

    That's a nice change.

    That is what I thought, given the liberal bias of the Miami Herald.

    No, from the way I read it, they are calling the man that was being robbed the victim. The BG was called the assailant or suspect. He was found dead down the street. The victim (man being robbed) was looked at, at the hospital. The shooter WAS the victim of the robbery. He use the bad guy's own gun to defend himself and fatally shoot the bad guy.

    Yeah, that was my attempted point. They got it right. It was a good shoot and the victim was the one that got to do it.

    Nice to see the paper got the victim/assailant labels right.

    The fact that the Miami Herald got the "victim/assailant" labels correct in this story is a minor miracle, considering that the Herald is somewhere to the Left of Pravda...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."
