A Better Mid-South: Spreading rumors in Chambers murder case

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

Over the weekend, rumors ran rampant that arrests had been made in the Jessica Chambers murder case. Those rumors turned out to be false.

How could we not hurt for the family of this Panola County teenager who was burned to death?

Chambers mom, dad, and all of her family are anxiously waiting for that call that may bring just a bit of relief.

This weekend, the call didn't come, yet the rumor mill was working overtime and you know that had to hurt them.

We should all make sure we know something is true before we spread it.

It's so easy to get caught up in what you see on the Internet, Facebook, and Twitter.

We owe it to Jessica Chambers not to hurt her family any more than they have already been victimized.

Tell me what you think about this topic or anything else you have on your mind, by going to my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South and leave me a message there.

Protecting the families of crime victims will make this A Better Mid-South.
