A Family's loss
Last week a terrible crime was committed leaving children without their mother and father. Many readers did not agree with our decision to run a photo of the crime scene, but other readers did. News is not always pretty and sanitized, sometimes it is be unsettling. Our job as photojournalists is to try and document our community, both good and bad, in the best way possible. While Kevin Kreck's first photo is powerful, we published it inside and in black and white. His second is as powerful and shows the effects on those left behind.
