Is this really how a manslaughter case should be reported?

Is it really necessary for a journalist to say that the CEO of Clinton Devon Estates “used a Land Rover to drive across country and through a river to reach the scene of the accident in which Kevin Dorman died”? Or that he has an OBE? Or to use the subjective headline that he was “choked with emotion”?

How is this relevant to the charge?

One thought on “Is this really how a manslaughter case should be reported?

  1. It is what happened before the accident and whether deliberate actions or negligent inactions caused it that matter.

    What happened immediately after the accident can never be an excuse for criminal irresponsibility before it!
