LVRJ: What Are Editors?

The LVRJ was just sold and they must have hired a Special Needs 5th grader to edit the LVRJ.
From the LVRJ:
A black teenager killed by police outside of Chicago over the weekend was shot twice in the back after attempting to steal an illegal handgun, officials and local media said on Monday.
The Zion Police Department said in a statement that 17-year-old Justus Howell met with another teenager to buy the gun before trying to wrestle it away. The seller, 18-year-old Tramond Peet whose account was the basis of the police statement, said one round was fired during the struggle.  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/nation-and-world/chicago-teenager-killed-police-was-shot-twice-back
Ok, kind of boring story nowadays.
So, the editors at the LVRJ added a video to the story.
And the video was...
(no not porn or a video of strippers)
The video was a story about a South Carolina cop was charged with murder for shooting a black man: S. Carolina police officer faces murder charge over shooting was the headline.
Great editing, LVRJ.
