Scoop Feedback: Looking For A Dead Person
The police of Geneva is looking for the dead person it is supposed to have killed, according to your web site. Can you help us?
More seriously, we ask you to delete immediately the wrong allegation that "at least one person is now dead after police shot with bullets in a crowd of 500 persons..." of your web site ( http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0303/S00185.htm ).
This information is absolutely ridiculous, absurd and completely wrong.
You are free to dramatize the information if you wish so - it seems you have a real talent for that! - but not to create information! The next time you intend to inform about the "Swiss police" - another nonsense in term of police's organisation in Switzerland - don't be afraid to ask for a better and more credible source of information.

SCOOP EDITOR REPLIES: Scoop did not claim this information was correct in its report. It was included in the report as a piece of feedback posted to our original article which had been submitted to Swiss Indymedia. The problem of accuracy of such information is one of the unfortunate and unavoidable problems of the open publishing model that Indymedia uses. It is possible even that the poster of the note was seeking to be ironic.
That said Scoop apologises wholeheartedly
to the Swiss Police for any trouble we have caused them. But
we note that they would not have experienced this problem
had they not tear gassed a group of protesting Swiss
teenagers in the first
