WCCO did a better job reporting this story in my opinion. They started out a littlle stronger, it grabbed my attention. The Star Tribune seemed to have all of the same information but the story was a little flat for my liking. Both stories are pretty even when it comes to the content. There must not have been much to talk about.
I did think it was intresting that the police were concerned about every day people turning into vigilantes.
