"Authorities say they were whacked by the mob"

Doesn't this story seem a little insensitive? I'm not saying this isn't an interesting way to die, or that their scheme was fool-proof, but should journalists really use the word "whacked" when a couple was actually murdered? This isn't an episode of The Sopranos, it's CNN.

Oh, those wacky gangsters. What kind of hijinks will they get into next?

You are 100% correct the piece was insensitive and trite. I'm against whacking and murder as a rule but crooks killing crooks... well... it is what it is...
