Pictures of grief inhumane

A child is tragically killed on her way to school and The Gainesville Sun photographers find nothing wrong in taking pictures of her mother and young sister wracked with grief and shock?

To further the tabloid effect, a second picture above that reprehensibly intrusive one is of a memorial vase of flowers sensationally staged to include a school bus in the background. How insulting to anyone with a modicum of decency and respect for the Veltcheva family.

The two photographers in question may not be aware that snapping pictures of devastated family members is, in fact, inhuman, but The Sun's editors certainly should have.
