You are right, Jack, that the blacking-out by local news outlets of stories like this one serves zero purpose. Details of this incident, including video clips, were all over Facebook minutes after it occurred.

Information sources/outlets engaged in censorship or sanitizing of news reports risk losing credibility, and thus usefulness.
