Absolutely! This man's family and this man himself deserve some privacy. It would have been enough to say he was found dead. How he died, and for whatever reason, is really none of anyone's business, except the family's. Shame on the AC-T for a very inappropriate news story. The news editor must have taken the day off.

What's wrong with telling the TRUTH for a change. He pulled the trigger and the news reported it. Get over it.

What's wrong with it? Oh I don't know, maybe it shows a lack of decorum, a lack of class, a lack of understanding. The truth is he passed away. Everything else is sensationalism. Get over it.

What if this was a brother, father, best friend of yours? Would you want all this told on him? I'd bet you would not. Time for you to "get over it," Sport. The public is NOT entitled to know each and every aspect of a person's personal life and problems.

Where did you ever get that idea? I'll tell you the same thing I told Obie. Would you want all the details told if this man was your relative or best friend? The public's "rights" stop when they begin to hurt others. And releasing this kind of information is hurtful and embarrassing to the man's family and friends.

They sure are Doug. If some yahoo wants to put a bullet in his brain then they take the risk of the news reporting it. This is very relevant news, just like the police blotter is.
