Newspaper should show compassion

Published: Friday, March 14, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

I am responding to the March 8 SV Weekend Reader’s Voice letter titled, “Saddened by headline for fatality story” by Margo Jakobs. I totally agree with Jakobs.

This was total disrespect for everyone involved. Both of those families are going through a horrific time in their lives, and a local newspaper should show some compassion.

Your kicker headline should have been the only headline. I see there are six people listed as the editorial board for the paper. You mean to tell me you all thought this was OK to print? How sad.
