A Picture With Devastating Effects
As a classmate and associate of Patrick Hernandez, I would like to speak on behalf of last week's article. I, along with many others, find that last week's published article picture of Patrick Hernandez was very inappropriate. The picture shown on the front page cover of lasts week's Wave was gruesome and heartbreaking. Seeing something as graphic as the picture was as heartbreaking as experiencing the sight of the actual shooting. When I saw the picture I had broke down into tears. People that had not even known him felt the pain of those who did. The picture must have hurt family and close friends in the worst way. I guess the thought of the murder of a brother or son, or close friend, or even as associate was not enough. A picture of it was not at all needed or appropriate.
