Murder May Be Self Defense

Doucet allegedly made his way into the home armed with a pipe wrench and in search of the homeowner.  He eventually found him, but the homeowner was armed as well, with a four ten shotgun.  Detectives say he then shot Doucet and killed him

Is it me or can you actually hear the disappointment oozing out of the article.

  1. “It seems” the first two words in the article set the tone.

    I don’t want journalists to report hearsay as fact, but by the same token, phrases or words like “it seems”, “apparently”, & “allegedly” are often tied to inconvenient truths.
