Letter: The Forum’s reporting appropriate, necessary

I disagree with readers who claimed The Forum was sensationalizing police Lt. Jeffrey Skuza’s suicide merely for reporting the facts about his possible imminent firing before his suicide. That is a central feature in the case, and media outlets would have no business withholding that from the public. The public especially has a right to know about internal affairs of our government institutions.

Openness is one of the only things that can keep our government units fair, honest and responsible to the people.
