Mirror coverage not responsible

After reading the Friday, Aug. 4 edition of the Mirror, I had to just shake my head in disbelief.

In the article about the drug bust as part of the story, the Mirror listed all the ingredients and containers needed to make meth. What were you thinking?

I understand in this Internet world anyone can find the supplies needed to make meth, but did you even think for a moment that you had a responsibility to your readers to not make that part of your story?

Now every novice drug maker will use this as basic information to make the stuff and either blow themselves up or get hurt in the process.

As a local first responder, I cannot fathom what the writer was thinking. Clearer heads should have seen this as a negative thing to do.

Don’t enable a person into a problem already too big for law enforcement to get under control.
