Reader takes issue with photo


To the Editor,

In Thursday’s News (Mount Airy News, Aug. 27), you posted a picture of the Virginia Shooting scene of the dead body of Adam Ward.

My wife and I feel this shouldn’t have been in your paper. It is only giving the killer more ammo for his horrific deed. Many citizens twinge when such photos are shown. Just give the deceased the honor and respect that they deserve.

Would you want God forbid, to post like photo of your loved one all over the news for anyone to see? I think not. I know that you are in the news business, however, I feel respect is in order.
