Reader objects to euthanasia letter

I am  very disappointed that your publication decided to print the latest letter from Graeme Horne (Gippsland Times 16/10 headed ‘Should we give death a chance?’).

Clearly he is trying to, and has been successful in, antagonising the local community. 

With statements such as “So, let the killing begin”, “I think it’s time we started to think more about the need to kill more of us” as well as “and that right time might be earlier than some of us collectively seem to want”, one must consider the possibility that this man is not just a pro-choice supporter, but that he may indeed be mentally impaired to the point of being a threat to society.

I implore you (the editor) to use greater discretion in the future.
