Keep child-crime stories off Pg. 1

I read, with dismay, your front page report of the tragic murder of an 11-year-old girl, in Florida. Print media companies all over the country are making the decision not to run front page reports of crimes against children so as not to sensationalize these crimes and further motivate the sick people that commit them. These newspapers are class acts. Maybe it is time for The Union to try some class and stop talking about serving the community and actually serve it.
