Bravo to KABC-TV Channel 7's Roger Bell and Jim Hattendorf for their intelligent decision not to show the horrifying videotape.

Amid images of laughing children, the video suddenly cuts to an empty playground where two boys sit talking quietly. "Edgar and I have been through a lot of adventures together," a voice track laid later by one of them explains. "He always helps me whenever I need help. . . . I will miss him when he moves to Kansas. . . . "This is Jose Morales reporting."
