Did you consider the impact?

By From page A12 | September 20, 2013

I am deeply disturbed and saddened that the article regarding the homicide was published in this past Sunday’s newspaper. The horrific and graphic details are sure to have an enormous impact on our community. It lacked sensitivity to the victim’s family, the Marsh family and the community at large.

Davis is still a smaller-than-most town where much of what happens is intermeshed on multiple levels. Had you considered what the impact on the students who had known Daniel Marsh will be and the long-lasting effect that this may have on their emotional well-being?

I am extremely disappointed in the lack of good judgment that the paper had shown in the decision to write this story in that way.
