I didn't find it snarky or unwarranted at all. I felt (and share) the frustration of this man's death being ignored while the man who killed him is being cast in the light of a hero. It's wrong and we are discussing it. *here*
This *is* an emotional thread but so far we've all handled it quite well, I think.
I just googled "Zachary Hartwell".
All I can determine is he is a friend of Mr. Dunn, who was killed as a result of Mr. Dunn's reckless driving, presumably exacerbated by Mr. Dunn's prior alcohol consumption and the level of alcohol still in Mr. Dunn's bloodstream.
As noted previously, Mr. Dunn has name recognition - even here. Mr. Hartwell does not. Nor has anyone here been eulogizing Mr. Dunn as a hero, or failing to acknowledge that Mr. Hartwell was killed, if only with the generic reference "passenger" or "friend".
I see no reason to announce Mr. Hartwell's name in bold red typeface two to five font sizes larger than any of the surrounding text.
I do not particularly care that the name
of the other victim was "Zachary Hartwell". Mr. Hartwell chose his friends and chose his behavior.
Putting Mr. Hartwell's name in bold red typeface does not make him any more of a known entity to me, and does not change my reflections on the circumstances of his death.
