Rush to judgment hurts personal reputations


You folks recently published a front page article – reporting the death of a young woman, injuries to her husband, as well their young daughter.

The investigation isn’t complete and the facts are not in before Lt. Smith of the Ohio Highway Patrol, as well as the Marietta Times, crucify the dead woman.

Shouldn’t we wait ’till all the facts are in before we destroy someone’s reputation? Are we that desperate for bad news?
