these ignorant, moronic trolls bask in their duties as journalists, information gatherers, news spreaders...yeah, whatever...they're all the same:





How a Reporter’s Clueless Report on ‘Rubber Bullets’ Made the Internet Explode in Hilarious Ridicule



Huffington Post reporter Ryan Reilly made pretty much all of Twitter do a double-take, check again to make sure he wasn’t joking, then double over in laughter and ridicule. And he did it with just one little tweet:



After some disbelieving responses, Reilly apologized, which is really rather revealing of how utterly detached our news media is from the common man.

Anyway, there was some grade “A” mockery served up to Reilly via Twitter, all asking if he could “confirm” these “weapons” found at Ferguson:



more about your intellectual and moral superiors covering ferguson and every other event you need to know about:

Earplugs. You can get a dozen of them in any drugstore in the U.S. for a couple bucks. They're good for shooting and any other high-noise occupation. They're very light foam rubber.

This type you roll between your fingers to compact them, then stick them in your ears and they expand to fill the ear canal. That's why they're effective. Good ones are -33 dB.

That's OK. You can still be a dangerous criminal. Start with stealing Milk Duds, then work your way up.

Not rubber at all. Plastic on the outside, cold hard steel in the center.



It's all about the FPS babycakes.

Pfft....what a dummy.


He should have known the police use those so their ears don't hurt from shooting black people.

They're also (obviously) used for construction work and operation of heavy machinery that produce a lot of noise that can damage your hearing (besides also being used for firearms operation)

But yeah.... the guy noted in the OP is a frick'n dolt.

He either has no idea about firearms and what rubber bullets are (he could have at least Googled it before he made himself an idiot on the internet).... or he has no idea about what construction/labour workers use on a daily basis.

Keep sipping your late you yuppie.
