WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?


This mornings Commercial Appeal carries the picture of a dead minor child who along with his father gunned down two West Memphis police officers on yesterday. The picture shows the dead child laying dead on the ground next to bullet riddled van.
There is no outcry concerning the picture of this dead child carried on the front page of the Ca and also on their website, But in 2007 when I posted the pictures of the dead bodies of those in the Lester Street murder the story was carried all over the world. In fact I had over 300,000 hits on this site in two days from those who thought my placing the pics here was so awful. Yes many thought my act was so horrible but they flocked here to see them.
There will be no out cry because the public will say its okay, the 16 year old shown in the pic killed two police officers, he was the scum of the earth so many will think. I don't care about the posting in the CA, just like the CA should not have cared about my posting, But I did want to bring it up just to see what comments of support for the CA are printed.

umm. you broke the law by entering that facility. You also violated the privacy of the family.
The CA picture was taken in a public area and was actually snapped before it was clear he was dead.
That being said, the picture should spur a lot of discussion about its appropriateness...

Last time I checked, the Wal-Mart parking lot is a PUBLIC place.

And the morgue is a PRIVATE place where only authorized people are supposed to be.

I am glad this father and son are dead and hard-earned taxpayer money won't be wasted trying to defend their violent, guilty asses. This is what happens when you point guns at and kill police officers.

850 SO YOU BELIEVE THE "I BROKE IN" STORY HAHAHAHA NOW YOU WANT ME TO BELIEVE THAT THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE CA DIDNT KNOW THE BODY WAS LIFELESS WHEN IT WAS PULLED FROM THE VAN.

WE SEE DEAD BODIES OF THE DEAD FROM MEMPHIS ON THE FIRST 48 AND NO RELATIVES PERMISSION IS NEEDED.

THERE ARE MANY PIC ON THE WEB IN FACT I HAVE ONE OF JFK IN THE MORGUE. LETS UNDERSTAND I CARE LESS WHETHER THE DEAD IS POSTED BUT IT SEEMS THAT THERE IS A DOUBLE STANDARD AS TO WHO HAS THE RIGHT TO POST THEM

BY THE WAY WITH SO MANY BULLETS FLYING AT THE WALMART IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE SHERIFF WAS SHOT WAS FRIENDLY FIRE

A VIOLENT AMERICA

The picture of the 16-year-old white boy lying dead next to the murder van is indeed shocking but just another horrible depiction of our violent America.

A 16-year-old white boy shot down like a dog after he and his father had gunned down the two West Memphis police officers! And we will never know the facts in this case: was the youngster really armed and did he actually engage in the gun battle with the police? Or was it his father who did all the shooting?

It did not matter. Both of the suspects had to die. Hysteria had seized the West Memphis police department and the possible innocence of a child did not matter.

And even before the bodies of the suspects were cold, white racists had put out the word that the suspects were Hispanics. At least the picture of the dead white boy in The Commercial Appeal put that lie to rest.

This entire situation is so tragic and affects so many people. Two fine police officers gone in the blink of an eye and a mother somewhere now mourning the brutal death of her young son.

So sometimes violent depictions of murder do serve their purpose as it reminds us graphically of the violent country in which we live. So there is little difference in the depiction of the violent murders on Lester Street and what the Commercial Appeal showed us this morning. Violence is violence.

Got to go with your frinedly fire Thaddeus. Watch that raw video taken from the helicopter by Channel 5. That van is ringed by cops each pointing a high powerred weapon. All it would have taken was a sneeze!
These goofs are standing in the line of fire of the other cops on the opposite side.

CJ said...

EXACTLY! Say it again, Thaddeus, say it again! And there is another point to that, but I'll refrain from posting it because there would surely be an outcry from all of the overly sensitive ppl.

Anonymous said...

Thud, I thought the same thing as you did about the friendly fire. However, it was reported that the two fugitives opened fire on the sheriff and his cheif deputy. Then, a game and fish officer rammed their van with his vehicle, basically saving the lives of the sheriff and deputy.

Yeah, whatever. I guess since you have been in soooo many shootouts, that you can Monday morning quaterback what real men did, from some nice comfy chair in you mammy's house, while your watching her TV. Only the folks there truely know what happened. But good guess, thanks for playing! Just remember, the camera doesn't show everything and sometimes stuff happens off camera... This shit ain't a movie boy.

How do you know that the kid wasn't the shooter. We all know teens are capable of extremely voilent acts...

OUT OF ALL THE BULLSHIT THAT THE POLICE IN ARK.HAS DONE TO THE BLACKS OVER THERE WHY SHOULD WE HAVE SO MUCH PITY REMEMBER DAUNTA FARROW WHERE'S HIS PITY

Anonymous said...

Thad,
I don't know why people are so shocked to see that the law enforcement officers shot and killed that 16 year-old white boy. When a person shoots at or aims a gun at an officer, they can expect to die, no matter what their color. Case in point, the 10 year-old son of white supremacist Randy Weaver and his mother were shot to death by the FBI. The woman was holding a newborn baby when she was killed by a shot to the forehead, and the boy pointed a shotgun at the FBI agents.

Thug, it's just that responsible people do not like you,and they consider you the worst example of any race. These decent people are aware of the fact that you have no credibility. If the impossible happens, and you do something right, it will mean nothing as anything emitting from nothing will always be nothing.

Matthews, you are poison to decent people, but then there are things like mad dogs and mad people, as long as they are legal, they are around, but most mad people, unlike you, stay under the rock
and rot. You crawl out and contaminate.

Anonymous said...

Take your choice folks. Which is more deserving, a donation to the flat slob that can't text in good English that host this trashy blob or the family of the slain police officer.

Doubt if Matthews has received the first response to his begging for funds at a time he claims, he claims, he claims, he has ratings sewed up. His claims make no sense.

It is the hatemongering carried on by idiots like sissy Ben Ferguson that leads to this kind of violence. Like all right wing morons, Miss Ferguson teaches white people to hate blacks, Jews, Hispanics, Muslims, Asians--anybody who does not belong to the Aryan race.

Today he is taking content matter out of context and reaching false conclusions regarding the United States president and the Mexican president. Homo queen Ben Ferguson is a lying bitch who loves to spread falsehoods, to misinform, and to engage in false analogies.

These radio hatemongers like sissy gal Ben seem not to care that they are encouraging and inspiring violence like what we saw happen this week in West Memphis.But this is what KWAM is now during between the hours of 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. It has an idiot teaching hatred for three hours and, at the same time, motivating hate groups like the KKK and the Aryan Nation into action.

Thad, I looked at that picture closely and noticed it look like that teenagers hands were hancuffed
behind his back. I don't think that the West Memphis Police would have handcuffed a dead body. It looks like they let this young teenager die from his wounds. I am not justifying what this young man and his father did. But was this dead young man handcuffed.

REECE said...

Just over two years ago, a young innocent, unarmed, 12 yr. old child named Deonte' Farrow was needlessly and brutally murdered by W. Memphis police officers. At the time of murder, an uneasy feeling of cover up and Blue Walled investigative practices sent clear overtones throughout the African American community that no justice would be issued for the unjustified murder of Deonte. At the time I thought that we would never see justice. Yesterday was yet another example to the meek and righteous that we can still hold fast to our true spirituality. A spirituality that won't allow a Chief Pauder to remind us of the days of ''Bull Conner'' standing in defiance of moral progress and human rights at the Edmund Pettis bridge. YES, yes, yes I said it. If Chief Paudert doesn't act so heartless and racist towards us as we sought simple answers to obvious questions, then he still has his son and his nephew to love and to hold. But because he showed no remorse and became even more hard handed with the African American citizens after the death of Deonte, has made the hand of God send some real racist to strike a blow against uniformed racism. AMEN. Dr. King said that the arc of moral compass is long but it usually bends towards justice.

The difference between your pictures were that if we did not want to see them, we did not have to come to your website.CA photo is front page news. If we got a paper, we automatically saw the photo. I don't agree with either, but some people want to see and have to see things like that. I personally think that they should not have shown a lifeless, 16 year old body on the cover of a news paper no matter what he had done. What's done is done now.

Who cares as long as those who would put a gun in the face of a police officer are put away.

No Thaddeus it wasn't friendly fire that shot Sheriff Busby and his Chief Deputy they were shot prior to officers arriving to the scene and the Fish and Wildlife officer actually save those to by ramming the van and catchin the suspect off guard...So please let stick to the facts and Thaddeus I normally agree with things you say and you were absolutely correct that there is a double standard but you were wrong about the friendly fire....But anywho continue to keep us inform....

The kid is fully dressed. The woman you photographed was partially covered. I swear, it looks as if you were shooting a photo of this dead woman for playboy or penthouse rather than for news.

The kid is fully clothed and in a public place. Your photo was taken in a mortuary, and the deceased is not fully dressed. How much of this woman's body did the Fords expose for you?

IM SO TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT THIS 16 YEAR OLD ON THE FRONT PAGE. HE IS A KILLER BRAIN WASHED BY HIS FATHER. HE MADE THE DECISION TO POINT THAT GUN AT OFFICERS JUST TRYING TO DO THEIR JOB. YEAH...MAYBE HIS FATHER TOLD HIM TO BUT DO YOU THINK IF HIS FATHER TOLD HIM TO JUMP OFF A 10 FT BUILDING FOR NO REASON HE WOULD HAVE. HELL NO HE WOULDNT. THE BOY MADE A DECISION TO PULL THE TRIGGER AND EITHER WOUND OR KILL AN OFFICER. SO THERE FOR HE SHOULD NOT BE HIDDEN TO THE PUBLIC FOR WHAT HE DID BECAUSE OF HIS AGE. LISTEN TO THE STUPID AND CRAZY INTERVIEW WITH JERRY CANE JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO ABOUT BEING STOPPED IN NEW MEXICO. IT IS THAT DUMBEST THING IVE EVER HEARD. IT IS ALREADY EVIDENT THAT HE IS ANTI GOVERNMENT FROM THE THINGS WE ALREADY KNOW. DOES THAT GIVE HIM THE RIGHT TO OPEN FIRE ON TWO OFFICERS TRYING TO DO THEIR JOB AND DOES IT GIVE HIM THE RIGHT TO DRAG HIS SON IN IT BY TELLING HIM TO TAKE A GUN AND SHOOT ALSO. I WOULD FEEL SORRY FOR THE CHILD IF HE HAD NOT JUMPED OUT AND FIRED ON THE OFFICERS AND ENDED UP GETTING KILLED IN THE CROSSFIRE BUT THATS NOT THE CASE. FOR ALL WE KNOW THE CHILDS BULLET MAY HAVE BEEN THE ONE THAT ENDED THE LIFE OF A GOOD PERSON. I AM A POLICE OFFICER ALSO AND I KNOW THE RISKS IN MY JOB. HOWEVER IF I WAS FACED WITH A LIFE OR DEATH SITUATION I WOULD SURE HOPE THE GOOD LORD WOULD GIVE ME A CHANCE TO DEFEND MYSELF AND NOT COME ACROSS SOME CRAZY ANTI GOVERNMENT PERSON THAT WOULD DO THE SAME THING JERRY KANE DID. HE HAD NO RHYME OR REASON FOR WHAT HE DID. HE SAYS THAT THIS COUNTRY DOES NOT NEED LAW ENFORCEMENT. IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG AND YOU ARE SCARED OR IN DANGER WHO SHOULD YOU CALL. AT SOME POINT IN KANES LIFE I PROMISE YOU HE DEPENDED ON LAW ENFORCEMENT TO HELP HIM. IF THERE WAS NONE WHO WOULD HELP. ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN ACROSS THIS COUNTRY WHO HAVE THEIR OWN PERSONEL PROBLEMS ALONG WITH THEIR OWN FAMILY RISK THEIR LIVES EVERYDAY TO HELP SOMEONE ELSE AND IT IS NOT APPRECIATED. NOT ONLY BY THE PUBLIC BUT SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO CONTROL THEM. I HAVE A WIFE AND A DAUGHTER WHO I LOVE WITH ALL MY HEART HOWEVER I STILL DO THIS JOB WITH HIGH INTEGRITY AND PRIDE. I FEEL THAT IT IS MY DUTY AS A HUMAN BEING TO HELP ANYONE I CAN WITH THEIR PROBLEMS EVEN WHEN MY OWN PROBLEMS ARE OVERLOOKED. I CONTINUE TO DO IT AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO IT UNTIL IM DEAD. I GUESS THATS JUST THE KIND OF PERSON I AM. MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE FAMILIES OF THE SLAIN OFFICERS ALONG WITH THE INJURED. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO STRESS THAT SHERIFF BUGSBY IS A TRUE HERO FOR BEING THERE. THAT IS A TRUE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER. YEAH HE COULD HAVE BEEN SITTING BEHIND HIS DESK LIKE MARK LUTRELL WOULD BUT HE HAS COURAGE AND KNOWS WHAT ITS LIKE TO BE A POLICE OFFICER. WITH THAT SAID MY HEART GOES OUT TO HIM.
I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SPEAK ON ALL THE COMMENTS ABOUT THE DOG IN THE VEHICLE. I AM A DOG LOVER AND AM EXTREMELY GLAD THAT ONE DOG IN THE ORDEAL SURVIVED HOWEVER I WOULDNT HARP ON IT. DONT WORRY ABOUT THE DOG, WORRY ABOUT THE OFFICERS AND WHAT THEY HAVE FACED IN THIS TRAGIC ORDEAL. THE DOG WOULD BE MY LAST CONCERN IN THE ENTIRE EVENTS THAT OCCURRED. ONCE AGAIN I WILL BE PRAYING FOR THE FAMILIES INVOLVED ALONG WITH ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS AROUND THE COUNTRY. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND COME HOME SAFE.

I agree w/ anonymous 9:22 a.m.; the picture in the CA website and print edition at least put to rest the race of the perpetrators.

If there is much outcry or debate about the CA's decision to publish this picture, it will be b/c it is a 16 year-old white boy lying dead. A non-white wouldn't garner much sympathy.

some people not gone put up with the sh@#% taking place with this corrupt government, and using the police corrupt force to keep them under control from fighting back. I have RESPECT FOR anyone who fights back against tyranny, instead of still stopping at B.P. and putting gas in their car after the worse oil disaster in history and the American people are so dam lazy and such cowards they won't even protest by going to another gas station besides B.P. to put gas in their car.

Well, I guess we'll never know! How about some personal accountability? All of this is the fault of the father, not the police you idiot! The father didn't have to kill two police officers, he practically signed his son's death warrant all by hisself!

There is really no point to your question, Thaddeus, because you don't give a damn what human beings think.

You have no moral compass. You will do anything to get what you want, including selling out people of your own color.

If someone offered you $50, you'd post a photo of your own dead mother decorated to look like a Christmas tree.

Fuck em Tough Shit! At least he won't do that bullshit again...

Good riddance.

To free up prisons they need to execute 30 death row murderers per all 50 states for 90 days for 1 year.

Then execute 15 death row inmates per 50 states every 6 months.

Bet you violent crimes with cease by 90% over night.....

That's crime prevention.

Question how many murderers are on Death row in one prison in Florida?

Answer....

Total White Males 242
Total Black Males 138
Total Other Males 12
Total White Females 1
Total Black Females 0
Total Other Females 0
5/23/2010 Total 393

Boy, you are in a real dilemma here......

"what can you do when it's on the front page of a newspaper?"

Have you tried skipping over it?

Have you gotten a heavy duty black marker and color the picture out?

Have you thought about not ever again buying this piece of shit newspaper?
