Letter: Information or sensationalism?



With all due respect, I object to the publication of a photo depicting a resident in extreme duress during the last seconds of his life. The reporting of the police action on Jan. 31 is relevant journalism. We want the facts when something highly unusual and frightening happens in our neighborhoods. However, by including a photo of the man who ultimately lost his life, you crossed the line from journalism to tabloid journalism. The photo did not enhance my understanding of the event and most likely caused more pain to the family of an unstable man.

To be clear, I in no way question the judgement of the fine officers who risked their lives to keep more people from being injured.

Please consider carefully the ultimate purpose of Current. Information or sensationalism.
