This article disgusts me. A true reporter would not divulge such information about the deceased. Plus proof read your article.

What disgust you about the article? You did not elaborate. I myself saw nothing wrong or disgusting.

The deceased's information on his Facebook page was public information, easily accessed by the public. It is important for the public to know who Bernard was, what he did, where he came from - so that those who knew him can appreciate what he did in his life.

Mr. Di Domizio - that is a crock and a typical reporter response who wants to feel good... listen to yourself... Those that knew him cna appreciate what he did in his life? Do you really think that they are getting their information from here? They are now sitting at his house, comforting his loved ones - if he was married and had children siblings etc... You are correct, the public can easily access this information if they do a search for it. The article itself can describe who Mr. Jaruga was by not putting out there all his information and providing a link to his facebook account. And also where is the respect that we were taught as children? Is it not Mr or Mrs or Miss (last name) and only call the person by their first name if you were asked too or introduced as such? Mr. Willi - This article shows no respect to the deceased. There is no need to have his facebook account placed in this article. That is what disgusts me. Decency must be a lost art these days.

just saying again- Some people do get their information from here. Any news website, paper, tv station shows a picture of the person they are talking about if they are able to get it. It puts a face to a name for the public. Does the public deserve to know what the person looks like... what they're interested in? Sure... if it's public knowledge. I don't see anything disrespectful or disgusting about the news article or the picture of the deceased. Yes... maybe they should have addressed him as "Mr", instead of his first name unless they knew him personally... but the article is short, non disrespectful and gets to the point. I, for one, wouldn't be offended by this article or the facebook page picture if this was one of my family members. I would be more offended by some of the comments people leave... but then again... I probably wouldn't read them. I don't think Tony Di Domizio is saying that to feel good about himself... I think he is trying to be respectful to the family of the deceased. There is nothing bad written.
