hi - i attempted to make the thread title as neutral and no-threatening as possible - but the real issue of this rant is :
group led stupidity
the synopsis is :
in 2015 a man committed suicide by hanging in a derelict building in manchester [ UK ] - 4 days later a group a photographers and models entered the
building [ i vehemently object to the use of " broke into " as cited in the source ] and in the course of thier shoot discovered the body - and
dlying in the face of all logical continued thier shoot for several hours , left the building - went to eat at a local pizza resteraunt - finally
calling the police some 5 hours later .
the inquest concluded this week - and the coroner was not impressed with the conduct of the " witnesses " - FFS - one failed to attend [ despite a
summons ] and is now in contempt and an arrest warrant is outstanding ]
my personal opinion of them = a violotion of almost all the T&C for ATS - and a few brittish statutes too
but - ATS - this is your chance to release your " inner pop-psychologist "
like i say - this is the reportage of the inquest - the events occured in 2015 - and i was aware of them at the time - but sat on the tail as
reportage was minimal - and the case still pending inquest
a couple of caveats for people who are not familiar with english law - and clarifications of the tail :
1 - mr Noonan clearly killed himself on the day he was last seen - so no action or inaction by the group would have altered the fact that he ended up
hanging from a girder
"trespass " - in english law - tresspass is not a criminal act - and for the purpose of this tail simply being presant at the property with out the
authrorisation of the owners is not a criminal offence - and so " we were trespassing " is not a credible deterent to any rational action
so please dont sully any discussion with tangential musings on trespass etc etc etc
now - the juicy bit - opinion and discussion
this tail is [ my opinion ] a textbook study in " group stupidity " - all 5 were adults - and none could be realistically judged as " an idiot "
and yet - between them - they managed to rationalise thier actions - at least as a temporary measure - and " carry on "
and thats where it gets interesting - because - its highly unlkey - that any one of them oporating solo would have acted in this manner
yet - all 5 went along with the " group plan "
there are reams of books , scholarly papers and case studies that address this issue - none cited here - pick your favoutite and refference // quote
it to support your opinions
over to you
