Letter: Should killers receive front-page attention?


The Salem News

---- — To the editor:

Many big-city newspapers often carry photos and articles on killers.

For example, James Bulger, called “Whitey,” is charged with killing two women by choking, as well as other people by versatile means.

Should these disgusting creatures be celebrated in the media for a sort of celebration it is?

Sentence them to a few small lines in the back pages.

Oh, let us not mention why killers reach page one.
