News media can't manage English ?
Texas man shoots dead ex-wife's three children, boyfriend, police say

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crim...ocid=spartandhp

Is it just me, or is this headline really a mess up of the English language. So the children were already dead when he shoots them ? I had to re-read the headlines twice or more to get the horrible news correctly in my mind.
The case against politicians simply is that when they legislate for all men, they always omit themselves

I've read worse, but it was clear to me . . . "Shoots dead" seems to be an equivalent to "kills" these days . . . Although since "shoots live" never really applies, it feels pretty redundant to me, but I guess "shoots and wounds" works as well. Myself, I'd have run with "shoots and kills" . . .

Even looking at it from your perspective, the ex-wife would be dead and have three live children . . . ". . . dead ex-wife's children . . " makes no statement as to the health of the children.

If nothing else, this proves what I have been seeing and saying for years - America, as a whole, is becoming more and more incompetent with it's mother tongue by the minute, and sadly, many either just don't care or are too lazy to make any effort . . .
