Quick Note on the Media

I just read this story about a Houston man arrested for a shooting that occurred at the Texas Capitol building today. Most of the information on the arrest from one Jill Magid. Here’s that part of the story.

Jill Magid, visiting from New York, said she was inside the building on the first floor when people started rushing to the south entrance, prompted by the reaction of two troopers. Magid said a man next to her said he heard four or five pops.

When Magid got outside, she saw about 25 officers surrounding a man lying on the ground on his side in a fetal position as officers held him down. He was not resisting arrest. She said she heard one of the troopers say there might be another person on the building’s third floor.

What I want to know is why the writer, R.G. Ratcliffe, says “He was not resisting arrest.” (more…)
