Should news agencies post pictures of accidents? *small update if anyone was curious*
There was a bad accident close to my home yesterday. It was very tragic, four people were killed, three of them being teenagers. Here is the link to the article if anyone is curious, a link to the pictures is at the bottom of the article.
Anyway, now there are a lot of angry people on Facebook posting on the radio station's page, saying that the pics should not be posted. The families had already been informed and none of the pictures show uncovered bodies. A lot of people are saying that the pictures are disrespectful to the families and should not be posted at all. I really don't see the issue, no uncovered bodies were shown and the families had already been notified. So I am curious to know what some other opinions are.
State police announced today that there is reason to believe that alcohol was involved in the accident. They are still waiting on toxicology reports, so I am guessing they talked to the survivor. Sad...
