Media should quit hounding Amanda Lindhout for an interview

First of all, I would like to congratulate the entire Lindhout family for their bravery and their never-ending attempt to get their daughter, Amanda, released.

First of all, I would like to congratulate the entire Lindhout family for their bravery and their never-ending attempt to get their daughter, Amanda, released.

Also, my heart and love goes out to all connected with this tragedy.

Now I would like to ask why is it that not a news cast has been on TV without it being brought up.

Now it seems like the news media can’t wait to get an interview with Amanda and get the gory details of her days in captivity.

This has to be the most inhumane reporting I have seen in my lifetime of 70 years.

Leave the girl alone. Has she not suffered enough without coming home and having the media all over the case?

While not downplaying the tragedy of this whole situation, this girl and her family do not deserve to be used as people with no rights to privacy.

Respect this. I am sure when she is ready, she will talk about it.

Until then, leave her alone.
