    [Interesting demonstration on how the Left Media bends over backwards in order to avoid "Calling a spade a spade" Maybe its due to a misguided attempt to avoid "Yelling fire in a crowded theater" but more likely the newspaper, in this case the folks at the Minneapolis Star Tribune, are simply trying to adhere to William Jefferson Clinton's legacy of "Cultural moral equivalence" and political correctness, which unfortunately for the young lady at the focus of the newspaper story led to her untimely death.
    You can see even after casually reviewing Mr Clinton's behavioral record while in office as Governor of Arkansas and President, how he must have arrived at that conclusion. Hominid females at the height of their estrus cycles were all basically the same for Mr Clinton's purposes. "Because I could!"]

    "Scott wrote here about the appalling case of a 16-year-old St. Paul girl, Clarisse Grime, who was sitting in the grass at her high school, nowhere near the street, when she was struck and killed by a vehicle that careened out of control and bounced off a fire hydrant. The vehicle was driven by an illegal immigrant who has been in Minnesota for ten years without ever having a driver’s license. He was known to local authorities, having been convicted of drunk driving in 2001 and driving without a license just a few months ago. But the immigration laws are not enforced in St. Paul.

    So today, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported on Miss Grime’s funeral. This was the paper’s headline: “St. Paul teen killed by SUV remembered at her funeral.” Killed by SUV? That doesn’t really seem to be the salient point. But the paper continues with that theme in the story’s second paragraph:

    Clarisse Grime, run over by an out-of-control sport-utility vehicle, was Martha Tamene Woldegiorgis’s only child."

    Mentioning the illegal immigrant part would not help the city's sanctuary policy.

    Then we should deport all drunk drivers, right?

    I'm with you in mocking the PC of this article, but you could apply the same logic to a lot of things. It shouldn't be any sadder than if he were to be deported and kill a Mexican 16 year old.
