The video clip is ugly — all of us in the newsroom agreed. It was partially redacted by the City of Las Cruces when it was introduced to us. We had a discussion about regardless of whether it must be redacted even more, simply because of its graphic character. In the long run, we made the decision not to. We produced it specifically as we bought it — apart from for a warning at the leading of the video clip to permit viewers know that what they’d see may perhaps be disturbing.
