    The rumors of a beating were posted well before the Star article. You can’t say that this is entirely their doing.
    _________________________
    HC: jojo posted a comment that the Star story online said it was a beating. Actually, the story said nothing of the like. Somebody major fucked up with the word beating in the headline. The police called them on it and the Star tap danced. By the way, the Star is supposed to be the responsible reporting entity on news. Not follow some blogging rumor. And certainly a story headline is not supposed to include dramatic information – or any information – that is not in the body of the story.
    They call that an error.

    Beaumont Club is on Pennsylvania.

    America’s Pub is on Mill St.

    What is up with you being the only one that reports this as happening near Beaumont?

    Exactly; Every legit news site is saying he was found at the intersection of Mill Creek and Westport Rd (outside America’s Pub). That

    I see that the Star has at least now deleted the word “beating” from that online headline. But you’re correct: They certainly fucked up in using that headline in the first place. [BTW, I’m not a big online f-bomb guy, but I felt license to drop one given its use in the main posting.]

    Not only is every news site saying he was found at the intersection of Mill Creek and Westport Rd., but there is now a memorial set up for him at the corner of this intersection across from America’s Pub….because that’s where he was found!

    Neither Kelly’s or The Beaumont are on Mill so how could the body possibly be found on Mill between the two?

    The irony! This site RIPS the Star for POSSIBLY reporting an error. While this site repeatedly reports an error, and even demeans a reader who posted the correct fact.

    This should not happen. But the few left at 1729 Grand are not perfect. And those mistakes can be hurtful. But The Star is still a pretty good newspaper.

    The Star did go back and change it from fround “beaten” to found “injured.”
    That’s an acknowledgement of, a mistake. One that the Star blew off when Kansas City Police called them on it. Guess they’re reading KCC. Think they’ll run a correction?

    I do like the inclusion of the picture of William Nelson at the top to remind everyone what a newspaper should be (and used to be). In the same manner, every story on KCC about the Royals should include a picture of Ewing Kauffman.

    you are a piece of shit hearne. You are using
    a tragedy to try to defame and attack the
    star.
    This is one of the lowest formsof behavior i
    have seen. You are using this young mans
    death (possibly murder) to try and further
    you personal vendeatta against your former
    employer.’
    The family of this young man would be disgusted
    with this personal attack you are waging.
    Give the grieving family some time to go thru
    their loss. As a journalist with millions (lol)
    reading this site you owe it to them to report
    correctly.
    You got the location wrong again. An edmail
    that I received in my mail box was sent to over
    400 email addresses. It said that the victim
    had an uncle in the police department who
    was talking about the beating. I am not
    a journalist …i asked people to verify information and not make a statement as to the
    validityof its contents.
    You however jump all over this. This is your
    site. You control it. why did you try to
    pursue the star and their reports when you
    have been wrong all along.
    Stop this behavior. It is harmful to the
    griving family and friends.
    why make this your personal attacki?
    why try to demean other over the death of
    a young man.
    This is one of the worst examples of prefessional journalism i have seen recently.
    Why? Why? Why? Let the authorities and the
    proper people handle this.
    You have really made an ass of yourself on this
    site and to the millions (lol) of readers
    on your site.
    Shame on you!

    wrong hearne…are you now qouting me?
    and qouting me incorrectly.
    The star article said they did not know the
    man death. It merely pointed out 3 potential
    possibilities.
    The email i asked someone to verify metioned
    that the young man had been beaten and the
    source was the victims uncle.
    I asked for verfification if anyone else had
    seen or heard this…i did not verify it….
    and what the fuck are you using my minor
    blogs are sources for your major internet site.
    Are you nuts? You’re using someone you don;t
    know…someonee who does write here for fun
    as a source.
    Are you for real? Maybe go back to journalism
    101 ad learn how the ethics of being a pro.
    what were you thinking when you qouted me?
    what were you thinking when you mentioned me
    as a source for a headline i never mentioned…
    are you serious?
    Who will be qouted next in this series of
    misqoutes and wrong reporting by you?
    whizzo the clown…john stewart….gall;agher…
    the fortune tellers on main street…black
    barby…..uncle dick….oh i know…glazer
    has the complete inside scoop for his
    next book and film…
    loser!
