Regarding the letter “Tragedy sensationalized” , which criticized the Trib for running a front-page photo of the Franklin Regional Senior High School mass-stabbing suspect: It seems that lately, people do not want to have cases of tragedy like this on the front page. Criminals have no privacy! A wrong was committed against society and we need to know. We have a right to know.

We are all good, innocent citizens until we make the choice to commit a criminal act. Why should suspects' crimes be private? If a crime committed is private, then all of us are in grave danger.

Knowledge in any society is power. It is only a small part of society that is criminal. Most people are not. Being known as a criminal is nothing anyone would be proud of. I am sure no one is going to frame that front-page photo; it just gets tossed to the recycle bin!
