Front page

South Waikato News - - NEWS/OPINION -

I’m writ­ing in re­sponse to those who wrote com­plain­ing about the front page ar­ti­cle ‘‘Teacher Struck Off’’. I am mor­ti­fied that some peo­ple in the district would want to hide a se­ri­ous of­fence in the back pages of the news­pa­per. I won­der how for­giv­ing they would be if it was one of their chil­dren in those pic­tures? If we hide these sto­ries then we as a com­mu­nity say ‘‘we don’t care about the chil­dren’’. Letter writer R McCon­nell how do you re­spon­si­bly re­port a hor­ren­dous crime? I think the front page sends a mes­sage to those in the com­mu­nity who think this be­hav­iour is ac­cept­able; that if you harm our chil­dren and get caught you will be on the front page of our pa­per. No bet­ter jus­tice then that. P Mac­Don­ald
