Columbine Death Photos

What’s the word for more pissed than pissed? You know I don’t like to post twice in one day so I must really be pissed. And you know what? You’re damn right I’m pissed.

Check out this article from Fox News. The lowest of the low in national media, The National Enquirer, has gotten their filthy paws on crime scene photos of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the Columbine gunmen. The pictures are of the two of them lying side by side after they killed themselves. What is the point in this? Do we really need to see their corpses? Do the families of the victims need to have this dragged back into the limelight? I guess I’ll be getting more hits again from mutants looking for more death photos. The Enquirer has reached a new low even for them. There is no reason why these pictures need to be published. Except to sell issues and make money by appealing to the lowest of all audiences.

On the Enquirer website they say that the pictures show that they did not kill themselves but Harris shot Klebold. Now according to the Fox News article, other media outlets have the photos but refuse to print them. Now if the photos actually suggested that Harris shot Klebold I think a more legitimate media outlet (if there is such a thing) would have already reported that. The site also goes on to say…

Our issue that goes on sale Friday reveals a top legal authority’s penetrating analysis of the never-before-seen photos, tells why legal, religious and medical experts and even parents of some of the Columbine victims are applauding the publication of the photos… and more!

Please. No respectable religious, medical, or legal leaders would see any reason for the publication of these photos. And I seriously doubt any of the parents want these pictures published. I’m sure they’re more concerned about trying to get on with their lives. I’m sure they relive that day enough without having more reminders.

No one should profit from the death of others. And the Enquirer is not only profiting off the deaths of Harris and Klebold but off the other victims as well. Like I’ve said before the Son of Sam law prevents murderers from profiting off their crimes. There also should be a law that prohibits making money off of other people’s deaths. This is not free speech. This is just abuse of the Constitution. I will not buy this issue. I will not look at these photos. And if you do? Well you just made yourself a little bit more stupid.
