It is one thing to report a most devastating and tragic accident (Nov. 28 article), but to start it out with the deceased being a convict in 1994 of sexually exploiting a female student? That has nothing to do with his unfortunate demise. Why put his family through the past that I am sure had enough media coverage in 1994? Where is the compassion that is needed more in today’s society with a leader that mocks the media, but more important the loss of a human being?
If it is to fill space in the paper, you missed your mark. It is time to heal, not kindle the fire.
