    “A person has barricaded themselves..,..” How is this possible? Does the person have multiple personalities? Or should it read, ” People have barricaded themselves”, or “A person is barricaded.” Assuming your editor, if you have one, didn’t learn English on another planet, there are numerous ways this sentence can be written without butchering the language!

      I think you meant “you’re” (it’s always entertaining when a commenter makes an obvious language error while attempting to correct a language error) You are welcome to take your misdirected complaints to the source of the article, (another detail you overlooked, oops!) Let the editors know you found some questionable use of language in their breaking news story. In the meantime, we’re happy to have a record of your embarrassing misfire. Thanks!
