    A picture is worth a thousand words....without them people could erase historic atrocities and shrug them off as fake news....burn the photos of lynchings and KKK rallies or cops beating civil rights protestors....if you want all this weaponry you have to deal with the after effects of what they can do in real time. If you can watch Hannibal Lechter eat Ray Liottas brain on film...you can handle a shot of a mass killing......the photos of the concentration camps in Germany and Poland were proof that it wasn't "fakefuckingnews"....if we're not careful the assholes will take an eraser to all their bad behavior throughout history and then say "prove it" when called out for genocide. Sort of like glossing over the Native American trail of tears.

    No. We don't do those in headstart. We do lockdown and lockout drills. Is that what you mean?

    Pretty damned sad, schools have to do thought at all.

    I get that and agree. Not trying to erase anything. Just trying to have some respect for the dead.

    Sometimes the way you respect the dead is by showing the atrocities that were done to them.

    Would we be respecting those killed in concentration camps if we didn't show the horrors done to them or if we didn't show the pictures at all?

    When you mask reality from the public you become North Korea

    it wasn't a shot of that guys brains being splattered around.
    You can show the story without showing her brains being sprayed out. Remember the Boston Bombing? We knew it was horrific, but didn't need people to start posting pictures of peoples legs being blown off, or bones sticking out of what was left of their legs.

    I don't think we're saying don't post links to the pictures, but for gods sake, when you're scrolling down a thread and all the sudden you come to a picture of a womans brains being blown out..I'm just saying, use some decorum.

    If it’s that publicly documented and planned why did nobody do anything?

    If the Boston Bombing happens multiple times a year across the country and nothing is done about it then pictures would need to be shown, IMO.

    Fear? Disbelief he was serious? Secretly agreeing with him?

    ...I can't speak for everyone, but I'd prefer not be lumped into whatever this is. I simply think it more than appropriate to put an optional hidden spoiler graphic content warning type image here, especially with a photo of this nature. In no way am I trying to "erase" this type of content or condone what happened today, so please dont get it twisted. Carry on.

    I posted a tweet and a picture and then left since my daughter's water line broke and I had to meet the plumber at her house. You and others posted about the pictures. I replied to the posts that were made when I got home. The "lumping" is my explanation of my own opinions but I didn't undo what a different mod did. It was easier to reply to the multiple posts who didn't like how I posted what I did instead of giving each person a personalized individual reply. I gave my opinion and still respected the opinions and requests of others. If you think I'm lumping or twisting then I apologize for that and in the future will try to remember that you would prefer a personalized reply.

    Fair enough. I totally respect and even agree in some sense with your take. I do. Just trying to have some respect.

    This poor fucking kid. It's parents like this is how you end up with these shootings.

    Moment white Texas boy, 9, storms over to home of black neighbors and cracks WHIP on door while looking for their daughter, 9: Boy's dad was later arrested 'for firing gun' during confrontation with victims' parents
    • Carissa Nash filmed the white boy whipping her front door Friday
    • The youngster was searching for her daughter, but it's unclear why
    • He allegedly damaged the family's Audi after being sent away
    • Nash's husband confronted his dad, who allegedly discharged his gun
    • Boy's dad, named as Brian Brunson, has now been arrested

    Carissa said of the frightening encounter: 'This kid comes to my door with a whip looking for my 9 year old daughter, then puts a big ass scratch on our Audi.

    'The police came out and tells us, “it’ll work itself out since he moving soon”

    'So when my husband got home, we went to talk to him about the damages done to our vehicle….The dad tells the son to say he’s not there. A couple minutes later he finally comes to the door with a gun! He almost shot himself and his daughter standing behind him smh'

    Kaufman County Sheriff's Office backed up Carissa's version of events, and say the boy's dad - 39 year-old Bryan Thomas Brunson - did indeed fire a gun during a subsequent confrontation.

    An argument between the two soon escalated, cops say - with Brunson eventually producing the firearm, a .357 Magnum revolver. Cops say as the argument persisted, Brunson allegedly handled the handgun in a reckless manner, causing it to go off.

    According to police, the bullet narrowly missed Brunson's daughter, who they say was standing behind her father during the encounter.


    Brunson was subsequently arrested and booked on felony charges of deadly conduct, police told TMZ Saturday.

    His son is a year too young to face any criminal charges.
