Reader's view: Suspect’s background not germane in sex abuse story

Again the News Tribune has shown itself to be no more than a tabloid. The Aug. 5 story, “Former coach pleads guilty in 2nd sex abuse case,” written by the newspaper’s Tom Olsen, stated that the former coach is “a former U.S. Marine and former member of the 148th Fighter Wing of the Minnesota Air National Guard.” Can someone please explain what bearing those facts had on the story? Or was that just the typical yellow journalism we expect from the News Tribune?
