Shocked by photo choice

November 18, 2013 

I just have to say that the picture of Daquan Barnes that was published recently in the BND was, in my opinion, in very bad taste. A murderer smiling makes front-page news. It is a sad day. I would have made a better choice.

I feel sorry for the family of victim Yoko Cullen. I was shocked when I saw that picture. Bad call, photo department and editor. Barnes didn't get what he deserved. Amen.
