Re: “Brothers butchered teen, say authorities” (TNT, 6-5).

As a mother of teens, I am appalled at the front-page headline. Does it not matter to anyone at The News Tribune that that is referencing someone’s son?

You may have intended to express the severity of the crime, but with complete disregard for the young man’s family. He and his family deserved better than that.
