I did not know Cameron Hooyer personally, but do know others who loved him.

I am thoroughly disgusted by the video The Tribune posted online and the screenshot published on the front page of the Utah section sharing the last precious moments of Cameron’s life.

The Hooyer family and all those who loved Cameron should be allowed to grieve the person they lost, and not have to witness an example being made of him and his final heartbreaking choice. The UTA and The Tribune should show more compassion and respect for those who knew and loved Cameron.
