  •  He Is No Hero So There is No Proper Time for (0+ / 0-)

    a reporter to have raised that issue.

    A hero is someone who puts themselves at increased risk in the course of saving or attempting to rescue others.

    Obviously he started out at immense risk, but that was imposed on him by the suspects who overpowered him and held him in custody. By the time he was alerting law enforcement, if that's what happened, he had escaped to safety.

    There are some impressive compliments that properly apply to him for keeping a cool enough head to have survived the extended captivity and be able to spot a chance to escape. If we had sane media they would save the "hero" designation for situations where it reasonably applies.

    In answer to your question, yes heroes and potential heroes have to endure this because raising the issue raises profits of our corporately owned public square.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
