Comment of the Day: "Jesus Christ, Chad ... You're Such a Douche!"


Today's comment comes from a post about an armed robbery this morning at an apartment in the Central West End. Police described those victimized in the incident as two Asian males and an Asian female in their early 20s. After police declined to provide additional information on the victims, I speculated that perhaps they could be students attending nearby SLU or Wash U.

My supposition really upset a couple readers, including a commenter who signed on as "fuck you chad." He (or she!) wrote:
jesus christ chad! is it really called for to speculate on what the victims do? you are such a douche....
My question: Am I? Check out the original thread and let me know what you think.
