Ya know, I really should stop reading news articles from CNN and Fox. The comments made by Americans usually portray that "ignorant" stereotype we so like to give ourselves to the rest of the world.
I'm pretty sure a few of you guys have heard the story where a man, claiming to be a prophet, decapitated a women in a supermarket. The story from the U.k plainly states the man's mental state. Let's take a look at the article.
The title: British Tenerlife tourist beheaded by 'Prophet of God' attacker
Key parts of the story:
It was also claimed that he had spent time in a psychiatric hospital and thought he was a "Prophet of God". Local news website site CanariasalDia.com quoted the local mayor, José Reverón, as saying that the man, who lived in a semi-derelict house, had shouted: "God is on Earth".
Mr Reverón added that the attacker was known to local police for his often threatening behaviour in the street, and had once knocked a man's teeth out, raising questions as to why he had not been kept him under closer supervision.
Now, let's take a look at what the United States is reporting.
Title: Man decapitates apparent stranger in Canary Island Supermarkets
Here is the ENTIRE article:
A knife-wielding man attacked a woman in a supermarket, eventually cutting off her head and running away with it, government officials in Spain's Tenerife Island said Friday.
The man entered a shopping center in the town of Arona, in the Cristianos area of Tenerife, and stole a knife from the supermarket before attacking the apparent stranger, a central government spokeswoman said.
Shopping center security guards were alerted and chased the man, subduing him until police arrived. The man, whom national police in Tenerife identified as a Bulgarian, was apparently known in the shopping area, the government spokeswoman said.
The British Foreign and Commonwealth office confirmed Friday that a British national had died in Tenerife, part of the Canary Islands.
No mention of his mental state or his previous claim to godliness. Personally, I think this stems from American news trying to shield its readers from the truth and 'protect' their religious views.
So now, the comments made by Americans...
Well, if you were to venture out of the US news and read the UK news, you will see that a bystander thought the decapitated head was a joke. I mean seriously, how many people have seen a decapitated head? I know I haven't...and because of one incident you aren't going to speak to Spaniards anymore even though it was Bulgarian who committed the acts? I hope this person is not serious and if they are, they should read some on the Christian crusades and inquisitions. . .
In the end, screw you CNN for not having the balls to write a good news-filled article.
