#FixedIt – a man murdered a woman and her children, his crime is the only story

Channel 7 (again), who seem to think a man choosing to murder women and children entitles them to pick through her life under sensationalised headlines.

There’s two possible stories here: another man murders women and children, or systemic under resourcing and failed decision making at Families SA. Vilifying a murder victim is not a story, it’s erasing the real crime in favour of blaming a woman for her own death. Again.

And nice ad placement for it too Channel 7.
