Its also clear, to me, that questions about an incident like this shouldn't even be asked in the first place. Its a private issue and a tragedy.. not something somebody should be going around looking for a quote on. I know its their job to report the "news", but have a little decency.

HUH?!"
You disagree? That's cool.. no more to discuss then.
As a lay person off the street, of course you say you wouldn't ask, tho who knows what you would actually do in private conversation.
But you don't work in the media, so while it might be unpleasant to do, it's their job. If there's an opportunity to speak to someone post-tragedy, it's their duty to do it or lose their job.
