Assault weapon

ORLANDO, Fla. -- An Orlando man was struck and killed by a sheriff's deputy's cruiser outside the Orange County Jail minutes after he was released from the facility.
The car came out of nowhere, no doubt. What was the vehicle doing out on the streets without proper supervision, anyhow?

Notice that it's not the deputy's fault; it's the car's.

To be fair, I would have pointed out how absurd that statement is even if it was a dirty civilian driving the car, but I suspect that it would have been written differently. And make no mistake, this is not a casual error on the part of the author, but carefully written wordsmithing.

I see too much of this in the news these days.
