Opinion

    Letter to the Editor: Disregard for life

    To the editor: I have heard the story of a group of teens who stood by while a disabled man drowned. People are outraged and offended. Who could do such a thing? Why do people behave this way? It doesn't make you a better person than those kids just because you can come up with some ideological argument that justifies you standing by and watching people die when you could have done something to help.
