To the Editor:
As it relates to last week’s edition of the Monroe Reporter, I’d like to express my displeasure with the detail and total disregard for the victim you showed in the Jeffries’ article. I’ve never seen a report as reckless with a victim’s privacy as this article. It is important that battered women come forward without fear of their personal business will be plastered all over the front page of the paper. To say this was in “poor taste” would be putting it lightly. Publishing specific details of that magnitude implies access to sensitive information gathered through police reports. If I were the family, someone at the Sheriff’s Office would have questions to answer. An apology would never correct this injustice, but it would be a good start!
