The article "Sex offenders work on campus" (CT, Oct. 10), was published in poor taste and is disrespectful to those whose names were listed.
Regardless of the fact that such information is publicly available, you reach a new low when you further that information through a medium that a significant amount of people read.
These individuals are humiliated enough; having to inform neighbors of past criminal history as well as knowing that their names are in a database accessible to the entire state, should be enough humiliation. And now you have to publish it in a newspaper? Was it such a slow news day that you had to sink this low?
Now in today's paper we see that an employee of this university was terminated because of his past history: the CT owes this man an apology. Because of an article published in this paper, a man has lost his source of livelihood. He may have
committed a crime in the past, but he has every right to make a dollar as I do.
