Newspapers should warn readers about grisly details

I enjoy reading the news, but I wonder why the Standard-Examiner can’t place a warning on articles such as the article regarding Nathanael Sloop’s hearing, March 28, “abuse details emerge.” It contains graphic details or photographs. Television news already provides this benefit. I don’t want to know the grisly details! I know some do.

I know it’s the paper’s job to report on the story. Why can’t it at least give me and other readers a warning so this information doesn’t have to float around in my head all day. I’ve been sickened today with what or could have happened to this young innocent boy.
