'I'm really kinda appalled'


Voicemail received in response to "Caught on Tape," February 21: "I just read your article, and I'm really kinda appalled by the way that you wrote it, because it's almost skewed that it's her fault — Elizabeth's fault. I'm actually at a capital murder case now, when my cousin was continually threatened, and in the end it resulted in death. So, as a woman, your article doesn't say to me be careful, it's almost as if it's Elizabeth's fault. You really need to look at what you are writing and what you're putting out there, especially in today's society — especially with the domestic violence issues in this city and around the world. Your article sucks. Good-bye."
