When they show the persons mugshot as his picture, it kndof takes away some of the sadness. Both of these men had been arrested in the past. the older one for hild abuse and the younger one for theft. is this gods way?

I responded to SteveP's post last night but don't know what happened to it. Summing it up on a much calmer note...Please don't make rude comments when you don't know the situation first-hand. If not out of respect for the dead, out of respect for the families greiving. We are very much alive and hurting...and we don't have records. We love you Johnny! You were a good man.

I'm sorry for your loss. Such a tragedy. I'm sure everyone is still in disbelief.

The first post was thoughtless, but I do have to agree that the media shouldn't use mugshots as photos, UNLESS it pertains to a criminal story.

They could have used his drivers license picture, or used none at all.

It's in very poor taste to print of an article of a man who died in a tragic accident while WORKING and being productive and they almost want you to say "Hey, that guy's been arrested before."

The News Press didn't have a picture of the other gentleman who was killed, so why did they find it necessary to post Juans?

My condolences to their friends and families.

Mr.Manning has never been arrested for thief. It is another Dusty Manning. Pay attention to your names and facts.
