Dear Media - There Are, In Fact, Lines You are not Allowed to Cross

Two lines were crossed here, but one of them is actually a crime. A Weather Channel crew was arrested for trespassing on the property of someone who was killed by a tornado. Can we make repeatedly asking someone whose life has been turned upside-down how they "feel" while shoving a microphone in their face a crime as well? This would apply to all disaster victims as well as people whose loved ones have died. "How do you feel?" "Well, I was holding it together, but since you have repeatedly asked me to reflect on this and given me no opportunity to move on, I'm going to cry. And I hate you for it. Are you happy now?"
