THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
A delay on May 20 in opening Massena Central School to prepare teachers on how to respond to a student suicide prompted several media outlets to report about the death of the student. Numerous posts and comments on social media sites contained misinformation about the incident.
Should St. Lawrence County media include the name of the deceased and cause of death when a suicide leads to other newsworthy events, such as a school delay, or other public safety issues?
Results will be posted Monday, June 1.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
The U.S. Border Patrol is investigating an incident involving the use of a Taser on an Ogdensburg woman at a checkpoint May 7 in Waddington. Jess Cooke, 21, said she was pulled in for a secondary inspection after agents said she appeared nervous at the checkpoint. A conversation with agents escalated and Cooke was tackled and Tased after she resisted an agent who grabbed her after she refused to comply with a request for her to move. The scuffle was caught on video by Cooke and can be viewed by clicking here. https://www.facebook.com/jess.cooke.7/videos/884263721635146/?pnref=story.
After viewing the video, do you think the Border Patrol agents handled the situation appropriately?
Do you feel like your rights have ever been violated at a Border Patrol stop in St. Lawrence County?
