The video showing the entire incident is gone from the post, but you might remember back in March when two girls, ages 13 and 15, assaulted an Uber Eats driver with a Taser during a carjacking and ended up murdering him in a car crash. Video showed one of the girls climbing from the wreckage and complaining to a National Guard member that her phone was still in the car, all the while as Pakistani immigrant Mohammad Anwar bled out on the sidewalk. As we mentioned at the time, CNN’s headline was pretty soft.
Police said the girls, 13 and 15, assaulted an Uber Eats driver with a Taser while carjacking him, which led to an accident in which he was fatally injured. https://t.co/N6RpLoTu8x

No, they murdered him. Now we’re learning that one of the girls, now 14, has been sentenced to juvenile detention until she’s 21. The second girl has also been sentenced to juvenile detention until she’s 21 after having pleaded guilty to felony murder; charges of armed carjacking, robbery, and aggravated reckless driving were dropped.
More than a few noted that The Hill left the whole murder bit out of its tweet:
Why not mention they also murdered the Uber driver? https://t.co/yNtYBCAbth

You spelled "murder" wrong.

Remember the murder part?

They also killed him.

You left out that they killed this guy in the headline

That driver was murdered. You left that out of the lede.

Siri, show me an example of “burying the lede.”
The Hill: We’ll take it from here.

Little more than a carjacking. Just sayin'

You might wanna make an adjustment to this headline
— Blake Adams (@bdahaloreach) July 6, 2021
(Context Alert 🚨) The Uber driver was dead on scene. They also ran back for their phones like nothing happened.

Yeah but does she get to use her phone in juvie because that’s really matters
— John (@JMGrandy) July 6, 2021
I'm sure they will emerge from detention as well-adjusted citizens.
Just imagine how different the world will be in 2028.

She MURDERED a man in the commission of said carjacking. She deserves far more than kiddie jail for what she did.

I knew nothing would happen to the little demons.

Just a 13-year-old out doing a harmless carjacking when things went wrong.
