News story on shooting victim hit
TO THE EDITORS:
Interesting article concerning the 17-year-old boy who lost his life -- interesting because of the lack of details from your staff writer, Jeff Hawkes.
According to the article, David A. Montes-Ramos "attended but did not graduate from McCaskey" and enjoyed life handing our Gatorade and bubblegum.
But there were other details about this story that would have cast this 17-year-old in an entirely different light.
While I'm sure the boy will be missed by his family, and whoever committed the crime should be punished, there is no way this incident deserved the kind of news coverage it got from Hawkes.
Hawkes should quit his current job and find employment with a local trash hauler -- his reporting is garbage.
