Remove Byron Durning as Editor of The Ocala Post

This petition had 272 supporters

Editor Byron Durning has shown extreme insensitivity on behalf of the Ocala Post in regards to the portrayal of a young man who was murdered and the photo used to picture him. When confronted with backlash on Social Media, Mr. Durning doubled down on this insensitivity and in turn has shown a true lack of compassion for the members of his community.

While the photo used in the original article has been changed, we insist he be removed from the position of Editor and that Ocala Post offers an apology to the grieving family members that have been so egregiously disrespected. Actions like this are unacceptable and as an institution of news you are held to higher standards which should reflect in how you conduct business.
