A REPORTER AND PHOTOJOURNALIST were covering a murder story when a friend of someone involved in the story approached the news team. He wanted the crew to leave, and he didn't want to be videotaped.
"Get your camera away from me, dog," he said as he slapped the camera away.
Then he walked back to his car and brandished a pistol.
The news crew turned this into a story. The lead story for the 5:00 PM newscast.
