  1. Do you think you can take off the half naked pictures of the victim (Karen Jackson) out of respect for her! You would think these news reporters would have some common sense! I’m not sure what you are saying calling her a fitness buff! Between school and studying and taking care of her kids she hardly had time for the gym. How disrespectful of you all to post pictures like this. Pretty pathetic!
