Interesting site you have there qq.

One thing I have a comment on is this:

>>> PAPD responding Code 3 to Parkinson Ave and Newell Road. Child vs a car.

Why do people do this ... like it is a boxing match .... in one corner weighing in at 40 pounds we have "Child" in the other corner weighing in at 3500 pounds we have "Car" ... see the match of the month ... Child Vs. Car.

This just bugs me when I hear it on the radio so often. How and when did this start to become popular. Why do people do this? Do other people find this kind of offensive?
