“You need to respect the privacy of these families. These families are going through the most horrific time in their lives. If they say they don’t want to talk to you, RESPECT THAT! Don’t go forward with your cameras. Don’t go forward with your microphones. Let these families be. Let these families heal. They deserve that. Please honor that.”
