  1. “Sad but true”? Shouldn’t your headline reflect that he has been charged but hasn’t had a trial yet? You usually have to have a trial before you can say such things, but I shouldn’t be telling professional journalists how to do their job, should I?

    Editor comment_content: You are correct the father is innocent till proven guilty. However police have charged the father in the killing. If he is found not guilty Oye! Times would be first to report that father had no role in the kcomment_IDs death. Please let us know the outcome of the trial.

    It is sad that people who are convicted in the eyes of public through allegations never get the same media attention when they are acquitted.
