This is important because when people lose a loved one the last thing they want to read is a horrible comment about their deceased loved one. WCTV allows people to write horrible comments and accusations on their website under tragic local stories. It needs to stop.

 

The sick part is when you post a comment on WCTV you see this:

Thank you for your submission. All comments are reviewed prior to being posted on this site. Station reserves the right to remove a comment at any time. Comments will be posted as soon as practical.

      An immediate loved one passed away 6 years ago this November and it was publicized locally beyond belief because it was an unknown cause of death. People have no idea how much their words can hurt the family of the deceased person. Certain comments are still incredibly vivid, angering, and hurtful to this day. People who have absolutely no idea about circumstances regarding the death have absolutely no place stating their opinion. No place at all. The comments can very quickly get out of hand and take an immediate negative and extremely hurtful turn. After the loss of an immediate family member (or anyone for that matter) the last thing those who are coping want to deal with are hurtful and out of line comments regarding the person that they loved.

      The disgusting things people say about absolute strangers in desperate situations is appalling. It's bad enough when celebrities and those seeking public acclaim are involved. Private citizens should be given SOME respect and dignity in their death.

      In honor of The Hayes Family. These people are the most loving and responsible people. DO THE RIGHT THING!

      Brooks Breslin was a great friend to me for many years. It pained me to read the hurtful comments posted regarding her tragic death. I believe in freedom of speech, but there needs to be a more thoughtful and expedient way to moderate, remove, and block users with hateful intent .
