    For the same reason I despise when the pro-lifers who choose to express their views with graphic photos of mutilated fetuses, I despise the use of the violent photos of deceased people to make political points with which I am in agreement -- whether anti-war, anti-death penalty, or pro-gun control.

    Its value serves to shock, and appeal to the basest emotion, and it is, regardless of the original intention of the employer of the imagery, profoundly disrespectful to the deceased as it turns their broken bodies into political tools.

        That is not cool. I'm not sure if you mean to sarcastically mischaracterize my post or directly insult teacherken, but either way, that is deeply fucked up. I can't HR you because you're talking to me, but this deserves to be HRed.

      •  of what these guns do to people? (7+ / 0-)

        I will absolutely acknowledge hating it

        just consider the size of a first grader

        imagine the impact of 1 AR-15 round at close range

        now imagine 11

        I am enraged
