Where do you draw the line?

In reference to your article printed on Friday, Nov. 16, titled “Testimony recounts tragic night”:

It is absolutely disgusting that you have written an article for publication that would include such gruesome details as the condition of that poor child’s body when it was discovered.

Where do you draw the line? What’s next, pictures too?

The “Weekly Wipe” reporters and editors should take into consideration the lives that have been affected by this tragedy, the torment that this family and anyone who knows them live with every day, and try to use a tiny bit of discretion.

Sure, the mother should and will be punished (and is on a daily basis), but the readers of your paper shouldn’t be afflicted with such images as you’ve displayed with your extremely tasteless article.

Please stop spreading ignorance and have some couth.
