    I just heard a live report from officers at the scene. The person who is dead has not yet been positively identified and next of kin have not yet been notified. And, they have this man's name on the TV screen. What is wrong with you people? There's a procedure here that should be followed. Identify the body, notify the next of kin and then notify the public of who it is. There's no excuse for his kin to find out that he has died on public TV.

    That poor woman he assaulted, very sick and sad. I have no sympathy for him, at least this way it saves the woman the trouble of testifying at the trial.
