People may not like it, but it’s called journalism. There are questions around the situation that need asked and ideally answered. Obviously it’s necessary to be as tactful as possible. I know the initial facts of the incident raised my eyebrows a bit, but the immediate aftermath wasn’t the proper time to be asking those uncomfortable questions.
The first concern is recognizing the tragedy, honoring the lives lost, and having empathy for the grieving families. At some point, though, it’s time to stop tiptoeing around. This was a preventable tragedy. Key word: preventable. There needs to be an accounting of what went wrong.
