KCTV 5 Shameless Bottom-Feeding Predators Says Judge

Crime Scene KC reports that a Jackson County judge is furious at KCTV 5 for airing video of jurors in the Elijah Jones murder trial.

You placed their lives and welfare in jeopardy and you did so unethically, recklessly and unnecessarily. You could easily have reported the story without showing the video of the jurors. If the directors and producers at Channel 5 weren’t the shameless bottom-feeding predators of the local electronic media that they are, they would be ashamed.

KCTV's news director Tracy Miller offered a regretful response, but we're sure that's little comfort to the jurors who have since become the targets of death threats
