@mmmh hmmm whats your problem with the reporting? Our lical community papers do a decent job of reporting events in our area. its not like they have dedicated crime reporters shadowing the police. I didnt see any of the network news stations covering this any earlier.

Hopefully they can identify the deceased and notify family soon.

Q -- How do you die accidentally, and be found in the recycled cardboard?

Worst paper cut, ever?

You live on the street and fall asleep/pass out in the recycle dumpster. You are then picked up the next morning and crushed. Not the first time either.

proves the need for more homless shelters, especially when it is cold.

Recycling is a good thing for leftists to do.

That's a good idea- build more homeless shelters- are you crazy? Build it and THEY will come !! Lets give them vouchers too, that's what we need more strangers running around town, things have been getting bad enough already, batten down the hatches!
