Want my opinion?

Remember this post?
Maybe you don't but this post is sort of a continuation of it.
It came about because of this picture.

Two young teenagers were murdered basically due to their lifestyle. We have way too much of this thug culture today. I hate to see young life wasted. Back to the picture. It was splashed over the front page of our newspaper in living color. When I first saw it I gasped out loud. It was a shocking photo but realized that it's true; a picture is worth a thousand words. But I knew that some would complain. I also knew that sometimes I just can't keep my opinions to myself. As soon as the first complaining letter hit the paper, out came my pen and paper (well, my keyboard) and the words started flowing. My only problem was keeping it under 175 words. Below the first letter was written by another reader, the second was written by me. This is the third letter to the editor I've had published over the years. What do you think about these differing opinions?
