It is not. 

Tweeter Home Entertainment (TWTRQ) was a consumer electronics retailer that sold TVs, car radios, home theater systems, and the like at more than 100 U.S. stores. In 2007 it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and had its assets sold to a new owner, who also filed for Chapter 11 a year later.

So why did shares of Tweeter stock jump more than 1500% this morning?

It’s like a failwhale, except one that’s reeeeeeaaaaaaally profitable.

“When someone tries to ram through barriers at two of the nation’s most highly protected facilities, do officers shoot? What if the driver’s car is carrying a powerful bomb? Or what if the driver is unarmed and has a child?”

Yesterday’s car chase-turned fatal shooting at the U.S. Capitol raises some critical questions about lethal use of force by law enforcement.

Secret Service and Capitol Police officials have defended the actions taken yesterday, but others aren’t quite so sure, as reporter Matt Pearce discovered.
