I read letter on Friday, May 12, by a Mr. Hertel that really disturbed me. In it, he was arguing against the attempts to reform prison inmates.

He is perfectly entitled to have these beliefs and support them with examples. However, his story about the nun who was molested and killed, was very disturbing.

Please do not publish a story with this level of detail again. It was offensive. Better yet, why can’t people who write in have a better sense of what’s appropriate for a news paper that is read by children as well as adults.

I can’t even verify whether the story he spoke of was even true. I did some research and it sounds like it could be an “urban legend”.

Maybe people should check their veracity of their evidence before they just spew it out there.
