Another Tele blooper

The Belfast Telegraph used to be a respected newspaper, but now it's tabloid rubbish and it's got journalists to suit.

Reporting on Michael Stone's ridiculous, scandalous pseudo-terrorist would-be attack on democracy at Stormont this morning, the Tele reminds us of his first atrocity, the Milltown Cemetry murders when, "He killed one member of the IRA, along with two civilians ..."

The comma is ungrammatical, and any decent journalist knows an IRA member is also a civilian.
