    Just saw this report on KTLA 5 news @ 10:30 pm. I feel very sorry for the loss this family has suffered.
    I also am appalled by your lack of sensitivity in showing this mans covered body, cane and shoe in the street! What are you thinking? Couldn’t you find any blood for ratings? How vulgar and disrespectful!
