A helpful primer on Body Armor for members of The Media™ (or, Because I’m Nothing if not Helpful)

by wfgodbold

Since certain members of the media were scandalized about the “body armor” the Aurora shooter wore, I thought I would take a page from Robb Allen’s book, and make up a handy graphic. Note I said “body armor,” complete with scare quotes; it turned out that he wasn’t actually wearing body armor. He was wearing a tactical vest made to hold accessories.

All images found via Google image search. I don’t own any of them.

Edit: I combined this with the GIMP (because it’s free). I’d never used it before, so forgive the unprofessionalness.

Edit Redux: Also, the “body armor” used by the Aurora shooter is the vest on the top left.
