Whether or not the post claiming responsibility for a murder of a cop in California is a hoax, the fact that the Portland IMC put "CORPORATE ACTION" as the top headline of the story is offensive and chilling. Regardless of the politics of the poster, he alleges to have murdered a human being. It is sad that the trite claim of corporate immunity (becoming what you hate, eh?) is sensationalized by the Portland IndyMedia folks, and displays an astounding degree of immaturity on their part that tremendously destroys their credibility as filterers of the newswire.
Just because the fact that corporations commit murder and get away with it through a variety of means doesn't mean that it's ok to act so yourself using such an excuse. Nor is it ok for Portland IndyMedia to treat the possibly important story (with significant implications for the anti-corporate movement and IndyMedia if true) so flippantly. Shame on you.
