Today in Fucked-Up Uses of the Passive Voice

There’s a lot of fail in this story and it starts with the headline: 

Chicago police trained to not shoot innocent people, but it still happens

How about THEY STILL DO IT? Can we not even grant them that amount of agency before the BLUE LIVES MATTER people start crawling all over the comments talking about how mean you are for noticing that? I mean, even if you grant that it is a fuckup, and I’m not sure I do, it is still a fuckup DONE BY SOMEBODY. The guns don’t fire themselves, unless the NRA has been wrong all these years.
