There are many measures that can be taken to stop journalist from over stepping their boundaries. I feel that the government needs to revise laws that protect our privacy. I feel that the press should not be able to print the names of minors that are victims.

Printing her name was not fair to this girl, and I can only imagine the pain that brought her. I feel that the media needs to start using their heads, instead of their asses when it comes to deciding on what to print. Stronger laws on what they can print or say should be put into place. I feel that media has hurt enough people today that they need to stop trying so hard to get their story. It makes me feel ashamed to be in a society that allows this to happen almost every day.
