Woman Found Dead on Road has a Name and a Family

It amazed me how quickly the media and a police official jumped to accuse a murder victim of her heinous crimes. They didn’t pay tribute to the contributions she made during her life, nor did they focus on her children or family; rather they unjustifiably told of her past like uncaring tales told by strangers’ cold, bitter and unkind. Yes, Valerie Warren had an ongoing battle with drugs and a less than perfect criminal history, most of her family can attest to that, but what gives a man or a woman or a news channel or a paper the right to magnify those misfortunes? Just because you have public access to them doesn’t mean you should race to be the first one to share them, or maybe that’s just me. Why must that be the headline and the nearly unmistakable fact that she was shot in the head and left to die on the road at the hands of a murderer go unnoticed?
