Minimize Harm

By: Jasmine Ramirez & Marcela Munoz

Treat sources, subjects, and colleagues as human beings deserving respect.

Be sensitive when speaking with people that have been through tragedy.

Always SHOW compassion when dealing with hard subjects and speaking with children. Show good taste and be polite.

Be sensitive when dealing with children or juveniles.

Whenever discussing serious topics, keep the people's thoughts and feelings in mind. (identifying juvenile suspects or sex crimes victims)

Keep in mind that a need for intruding in someone's life is only needed if there is an overwhelming public need to intrude into a person's privacy compared to a public official's life.

Respect people's lives.
