Taxi driver Derrick Bird unlawfully killed the 12 victims he shot dead in Cumbria before he committed suicide, an inquest jury has ruled.
I have just read the above headline on an onsite English newspaper and must admit to not having read the whole story.
The headline 'grabbed' me as we are encouraged to do with our own stories....let the headline grab 'em.
I am not commenting on the story, as I haven't read it YET, as mentioned above....but the fact that the headline said Derrick Bird UNLAWFULLY killed the 12 victims, is of great concern to me.
Does that mean that you CAN 'LAWFULLY' kill individuals whenever you feel like it.
OK - so I know some of you are going to tell me to go and read the WHOLE article.
Yes...I plan to do so as soon as I finish this.
I NOW understand how important the wording of the Headlilnes IS.
