'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Thursday, April 17, 2014, 8:55 p.m.
 

I must take exception to a statement in the editorial “Attack at Franklin Regional: More madness”.

The editorial states: “Whether it's a knife or a gun or even box cutters in the hands of maniacs, the intent to harm as many people as possible is not limited by the weapon of choice (or convenience).”

We can parallel Franklin Regional with Sandy Hook in that a gun was used at Sandy Hook and many lives were lost, whereas at Franklin Regional the use of knives limited the carnage to injuries rather than deaths.
