Your Misleading Michigan Media Headline Of The Day

The headline from The Detroit News: Police: CPL holder shoots man who stole iPhone

You read that half expecting a CPL holder imrpolerly shot someone over property dispute, perhaps imagining the CPL'r shooting the thief who had grabbed an iPhone and was running away.

In reality, not so much, go ahead an read the whole short article but here's the highlight:

In the course of the transaction, the suspect pulled out a handgun, police said.

But the 23-year-old — who has a license to carry a concealed handgun — pulled out his own gun and shot the suspect in his right thigh.

The suspect was spotted leaving the area in a silver Toyota with three other men, who transported him to Henry Ford Hospital, where he remains in police custody. No update on his condition is immediately available.

The headline should more properly read, suing the same number of words: CPL Holder Defends Self From Armed Robbery

But that wouldn't fit in with the editorial bias, now would it?
