Stupid, Manipulative ABC News Article

Maybe I'm a little irritable this morning but I just read this ridiculous ABC news article titled Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's Medical Care Is Covered at Federal Facility. In it, the reporter states that after receiving medical care for nearly a week at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Dzhokhar has been transferred into federal custody were his treatment will continue. "Since he is in federal custody, it's unlikely Tsarnaev or his family will have to pay for his medical care, as U.S. Federal Marshals are responsible for the health care of any inmate in their custody.

Maybe it's just me but it seems that the article has only one purpose and that is to manipulate the emotions of its readers into thinking that it is outrageous and maybe even unprecedented that we would be providing medical treatment for a terrorist. The truth is that the government is always responsible for providing the necessary medical care of all inmates. This is true at the local, state and federal level. It doesn't just happen at "The transformative moment when he's transferred into custody of the federal government" as the article implies.

Don't get me wrong, I despise these wicked terrorist and all that they believe in. I just can't stand when the media attempts to make a story out of nothing by simply manipulating its readers.
