I think the reason the media runs with this stuff is that it is released and the media gate keepers reflexively go with it. Patch went with it and it is not in the business of selling papers. I think we ought to blame ourselves -- at least collectively. They run material like that. We consume it. If we -- in the sense of a critical mass -- clearly indicate we don't want this material, the media would know to leave it be. Perhaps, I'm too empathetic. When I saw those pictures, I felt sorry for all of them. I could see the suffering on their faces at the present moment and all that they may have gone through to get where they got. Of course, there were some here who took the opportunity of seeing their suffering faces and and concluding this was an opportunity to make them suffer some more. These posters put them down in order to deal with their own feelings of inferiority. So, its a balancing act. In this instance, those who felt empathy because of the pictures outnumbered those who did not. Perhaps, if we can increase our sensitivity to those around us who have fallen on hard times, we might get a step closer to helping our fellow human beings and repealing laws that define as an offense what people do in the course of minding their own business.

I totally agree with you john, but even as patch doesn't sell papers, their existence relies on readership to a great extent, and if there is no one with a little common decency to edit the acidity coming in as "news", then there is no integrity. you are a diplomat giving credit to some folks, but good responsible journalism and reporting is just that regardless of the medium used to disseminate any information to the public. many would disagree, but I would rather read a puff piece about cats, or a simple human interest story than have to swallow a jagged pill like this one served up for the fork an knife clutching mongrels who thrive on this ego satiating tripe.

seriously, do these people look happy in the least. we all have dog days, and I would hope that a little humanity would be brought to bear when and if any of our number is up

face it, most dogs get treated better in the city than these marginal people. and they can pyss, defecate, have sex at will, and their owners never get hauled off or issued infractions. and the dogs usually get better health care as well. NL is 'developing' all right, oh sure it is!

John butler these are not victim less crimes it appears they have diseases. What if they pass on hep or HIV? That's victim less?
