The face of a smiling monster

I don't know who made the decision to print the picture of the monster Adam Lanza, but it truly was not very well thought out ("Lanza 'would just shut down,'" Dec. 17). How dare you show this boy waving and smiling.

It looks like he is mocking all of us. Why should he achieve exactly what he set out to do: Get attention in the most tragic and unimaginable way?

You have some nerve putting his picture there like that, only a page away from those little angels and the heroes who died trying to save them. Guns are not what we need to get rid of, it's poor judgment.
