Coverage of Florida shooting is not the truth

Editor, the Advocate:
I cannot fathom why you wish to act like an uneducated spoiled child. I reference your recent article on Travon Martin and George Zimmerman. You have a responsibility to report the news.
However, it is totally irresponsible to show a picture of an eleven-year-old child who is now seventeen and over 100 pounds heavier that has been arrested time after time for illegal activity. Perhaps you were never taught the simple fact that the truth would gain you more readers than a lie. It is lying to be led by the "elite news media" into printing something that is not true. Instead of being led by the nose, just try printing the truth for a change. Remember, you could be charged with defamation of character for such an atrocity, as well as inciting a riot.
It is time for that "hope and change" you so gullibly supported 4 years ago. A change to the truth. Hmm, what a novel idea.
