No need to see Travis’ ar­rest

The Dallas Morning News - - Nation & World -

Re: “Judge won’t block Travis’ nude ar­rest video — Coun­try star loses bid to stop re­lease of drunken 2012 in­ci­dent,” Fri­day Metro & State story.

The at­tempt by the me­dia to ob­tain the DWI ar­rest video of Randy Travis is be­yond any form of de­cency. Af­ter the Texas Depart­ment of Pub­lic Safety re­fused to re­lease it, they went to fed­eral court. The DPS re­leased this 2012 video for pub­lic view­ing.

Travis re­mains in a hor­ri­ble men­tal con­di­tion, un­able to lead a nor­mal life, and the me­dia wants the pub­lic to see him ar­rested. Has the me­dia any sense of de­cency? It ap­pears that they do not.
