The NY Daily News has unnecessarily shamed a man who died yesterday.

Charles Cheeseboro, Jr., 43, was involved in a scooter accident that left him with a serious head. He succumbed to his injury two days later. He was living homeless at the time. He used to work with the Doe Fund, a nonprofit that assists homeless people. He was outgoing and loved to make people laugh.

It could have been a nice tribute to someone that died tragically or a cautionary story about the dangers of riding e-bikes, but instead the NY Daily News needed to tarnish it by writing “he was a registered sex offender”; a fact that didn’t contribute to his death nor would the reader’s knowledge at this time protect the public in any way… it’s just another case of unnecessary shaming.
