    I agree with BF. Just because you CAN show the video, doesn't mean that you should.

    Right, you're actually agreeing with me. If 19 didn't show the video but all the other news stations in town did. Didn't 19 do the right thing?

    Right; thank you TB&G. It wasn't that they did or didn't show it. It was about the phony reason given. That was my point from the very beginning.

    How do you know the reason was phony?

    It sounds like Channel 19 handled a bad situation well.
    I agree, if anything does the police department have to immediately release the video? I would think not. Like someone else said, it was a bad situation; knowing the outcome makes it even worse but I wouldn't say it shouldn't be showed at all. If anything I think WXIX did it the right way.

    BF ya know I love ya man, but I'm with Bench on this one, how do you know it was phony? Maybe they knew they have a strong audience that follows them and that some of that audience may or may not want to see it, and that they also didn't think it was appropriate to put it on tv for the family to see unexpectedly. Honestly, if anyone wanted to see it 60-70% of people could probably do it on their cell phones via youtube....

    BUT, If people start to understand that when you drive, you are behind the wheel of a deadly weapon. Not only are the victims and their families lives effected, but this guy who killed them will be in prison i'm guessing the rest of his life, and his family suffers too. People need to see what stupid decisions can cause. I have no issue on how they did this.

    Get a grip, you know full well that "boy" is just an expression, like "geez" and he wasn't calling you boy. You're over-reaching there. Also, not everyone agrees with you, I'm in agreement with Birdsfan and TB&G. There is no reason to show the impact, it serves no purpose. Perhaps if it was a loved one of yours you'd feel differently.

    How are you missing this? When did I say that should show the impact? You're agreeing with me. They handled it perfectly by not showing it

    I'm fairly certain they fpo have to release it, the Freedom of information act would require them to release if anyone requests it.

    The police department didn't do anything wrong. I'm not sure on their policies or Ohio's state laws, but I'd say they had no choice but to release the video.

    I think there's two different cases being argued here. One is whether 19 did anything right/wrong compared to what the other stations did. That could be debated all day long. However, what I think BF is trying to point out (and I don't mean to be putting words in your mouth BF)...is that if Channel 19 is going to make a big deal out of NOT showing the impact "due to the respect of the families"...then that means not showing it ANYWHERE. Think about it... by pulling it from the actual tv broadcast, that impacted what, maybe 200,000 viewers? But, keeping it up on their website allows for the ENTIRE WORLD to view it. That doesn't sound like a lot of respect to me.

    If you want to show the video fine. If you don't, that's fine too. But don't make a big deal about not showing it, and act like you're taking the high road...and then turn around in the next instant and show it (and even promote the fact!). I'm with you BirdsFan...totally classless.

    But drove traffic to their web site where they, say it with me, show it. That's BF's point, and he's right. No, I missed nothing.
