ODD: Sun Sentinel's Inappropriate Graphic For Christmas Shooting Story

sun sentinel murder cartoon

LAUGHING MATTER? The Sun Sentinel is running this cartoon — with a caption connecting it to a Christmas day murder — to its online report. (Screen Shot from SunSentinel.com @ 1:03pm).

DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — As the investigation continues into Wednesday morning’s apparent domestic murder involving an off-duty PBSO Deputy, the Sun Sentinel is attaching the graphic above of a smiling woman at her computer to the story.

While we suspect it’s representative of what happens when the grownups take the day off for a holiday, it’s also an example of why Tribune’s Sun Sentinel continues to be in so much trouble.

It’s difficult to justify buying a subscription to a newspaper that thinks it’s appropriate to run a cartoon in the middle of a murder story.

It is unclear if the victim of today’s murder is male or female, or if the victim was sitting at a computer and smiling — although that’s oddly implied by the Sun Sentinel.

A PBSO deputy was seen being taken from scene — on Franklin Club Drive –in handcuffs.
