Why is this news? And why did the Tribune even bother posting this story?

Whenever a random act of violence does take place that deserves a public discussion forum, the Tribune usually disables the ability to comment on such items. Yet, they post stories, such as the above, that have little bearing on anything and are of little or no consequence.
