Letter: The Forum’s reporting appropriate, necessaryI 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.
