Can someone please explain to me why everyday for the last week (March 12, 14, 15 and 16) the Day editors chose to publish photos of murderers for the lead photo on the front of the Region section?

These cowards deserve nothing more than the prison time they receive. Shame on The Day for giving them notoriety they do not deserve. Unfortunately, this is how our media likes to play, always showing the worthless criminal and not the innocent victim - in this case Matthew Chew.

I thought CVS already had that info on our Extra Care cards.
