In poor taste

Today’s headline might sell a lot of papers, but it is in very poor taste on several levels. The “knock-out game” is not a game.

If it is labeled a game, then let’s all play! Aren’t games usually fun? Let the copy cats take notice! Your local paper has now made you aware of a new game!

This article sensationalizes random acts of violence, a very poor choice to put on the front page of your newspaper.

There is a fine line between making the public aware of a dangerous situation and giving fresh ideas to thugs on ways to harm us for their own “entertainment”.
