Strangers Commit Crimes. Our Heroes Make Mistakes.

[Whig-Standard] I was saddened to read about Jamie Arniel’s arrest for drunken driving, particularly so soon after his success in being drafted by a National Hockey League team.

I was more saddened, and rather puzzled, by the Whig-Standard’s front-page treatment of this story. A young man currently under considerable pressure was charged in connection with an unfortunate incident in which, thankfully, no one was injured. Does this merit front-page treatment? Surely such a story should have been handled in a more balanced manner in the sports section.

The rest.
