Joseph A. Madenski: No sense in printing bomb instructions

To the editor:

With the tragic results of the Boston Marathon bombing, I believe that the Daily Hampshire Gazette’s related coverage did no service to the community. I read with dismay the detailed instructions on how the pressure cooker bombs were assembled and how they actually could be detonated along with pictures of the implement. I know this information can be accessed online, but why would the Gazette even print this information?

This is information that copycat individuals would obviously love to see. Why would you want to allow people to even know about this? Properly, the Gazette should state these are acts not to be taken lightly. This type of information should not be published. Please in the future use common sense.
