Breaking Story: Convicted may have disregarded rules

Imagine the following headline:

Documents Show U.S. Citizens Disregard Rules”

Followed by this explanation:

Newly released documents regarding crimes committed by U.S. citizens detail a troubling pattern of these citizens failing to understand and follow the rules that govern their actions.

“The documents, released Tuesday by the American Civil Liberties Union ahead a lawsuit, total nearly 10,000 pages of U.S. courts’ documents, transcripts and police investigative reports about 22 incidents. They show repeated examples of citizens pleading not guilty.”

Compare and contrast with this breathless AP report:

Documents Show Soldiers Disregard Rules

Of course when you read the article, you learn the documents are from Court Martials and Military Investigations...you know, the kind of things the military does when it thinks soldiers may have disregarded rules.
