Yes I know, we all know. I shall ask you a question, and please answer honestly.
Currently you are alive and well, but if for some reason you weren't, would you be happy for your body to be splashed around in the media, for no educational purposes, just for sheer voyeurism?
Likewise to the above question if you were no longer alive, would you be happy for pictures of your loved ones in dire distress and grief being splashed around in the media, for no educational purposes, just for sheer voyeurism?
If this was a war story, and people were trying to get the message across of the atrocities of war, I could see your point. However I fail to see the relevance in viewing such pictures here, as we all know what people must be going through there. Therefore is it right that we gawp at them?
I think the pictures of the wave speak far more words about trying to understand the nature of the beast, then gawping at the dead and distressed.
So again I ask, would you please remove those pictures of the dead and distressed out of respect of their memory and their feelings please.edit on 13-3-2011 by AmatuerSkyWatcher because: (no reason given)
