Did Eyewitness News "dishonor" a soldier who gave his life for his country?
That's what one caller says.
We covered the recent funeral service for Eric Nettleton, a 26-year old Army sargeant who was killed in Afghanistan.
Our story included a young lady who spoke about her memories of Eric.
What she said was fine, but her appearance upset one of our viewers.
The viewer left a message on our Answerback line that she was appalled we would interview the young lady with pink hair, studs in her lip, and a tattoo on her neck.
She went on to say that we "dishonored him (Nettleton) by talking to someone who looks like that."
We included that young lady because she was a friend of Eric's, and wanted to talk about him.
Should we only interview people who pass a certain test of physical appearance?
If we were to start that, where would it stop, and who's idea of "proper" physical appearance should we use?
