Plus, this explanation: "Rebecca Aguilar has been suspended since this first aired, but how in the world did she watch this tape in the first place and not realize how horrible a person she appears to be? SarahK's theory is her producer hates her and made her run the segment to try and get her suspended."
And this: "Aguilar and the entire editorial staff at KDFW should be forced to take a two-day self-defense course at a local gun range. Hell, take a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) course and learn what responsible gunowners are really like. Of course they have to pass the criminal background check."
If you'd like to share your views of KDFW's conduct with station management, their contact information is here. Please be polite.
I think that their behavior is very unwise, and is more likely to inflame the situation than to spare them further embarrassment. A public apology and a promise to do better in the future would make much more sense.
