Demonstrates a lack of empathy and support

Letter to the editor,
I am writing to let you know of my concern that in last week’s paper my cousin’s arrest made front page news.
I do not feel that this was appropriate given the fact that his grandmother had recently died and her funeral was the next day. Her obituary notice was also part of this same paper.
This piece of news could have been placed in this week’s edition and did not (and does not) have to be front page news. How tragic that at a time of mourning you and your staff chose to sensationalize Shawn’s current legal issues! This demonstrates a lack of empathy and support for my extended family and their recent loss.
It is my hope that there is a direct apology made to the Hartnell family by you and your staff.
–Thank you,
Kim Gosnell
