An area man murdered his pregnant wife and two young daughters. You will not read his name here. He confessed, plead guilty, and will die in prison. 50-50 chance of old age or being offed by another prisoner.
Recently “details” of just how he killed them, step by step, has been released and disseminated worldwide (Daily Mail tabloid, for example).
What public good is served with this? Titillate ghouls? Fuck’em.
Three people are dead. The details rob them of any dignity. Yes, they are dead. The people who knew them and loved them are not.
Law enforcement, coroners, judges and juries need to know these kinds of details. Nobody else. It is a matter of respect. Why are accident victims covered with a blanket by first responders? Respect.
On a personal level I’ve seen enough gore that I won’t gawk at an accident scene. Eyes focused on navigating the scene, avoiding hitting pedestrians, and avoiding the damn lookylous.
Worse still, the local rag keeps running with the story for days. Sick IMO. YMMV
