[QUOTE=Berz3rk;35617605]That's Anders Behring Breivik on the small island of Utoya in Norway. He went on the island posing as a police officer and shot 69 people, most of them children.[/QUOTE] After killing 7 people in a bomb blast.

[QUOTE='[Seed Eater];35615474']The photo was by Eddie Adams, who won a Pulitzer Prize for it. He regretted taking the photograph until his death in 2004. South Vietnamese General Ngygen Ngoc Loan is the man firing the shot. Loan was Chief of Police at the time. He aided in building hospitals, giving to orphans, and in general, humanitarian aid. The man being shot was a leader of a Viet Cong squad tasked with killing police. "The man Loan shot had been caught near a ditch containing 34 murdered men, women and children, among them were the wife and six children of one of Loan's closest friends (the six murdered kids were also Loan's godchildren)." The photo was taken out of context. People were so caught up in the horror of it, they blamed Loan. After immigrating to America and taking an assumed identity to keep himself unknown to the public, he ran a pizza parlor. When he was discovered, he received many numerous death threats and was forced to close his business.[/QUOTE] Also, the whole event was shot on video by a nearby cameraman, too. Skip to 20:00, because I don't know what I have to put in the URL to force it to go to that automatically. Could be considered NSFW, although its not really that gory. It's been stated that Loan did similar executions on a regular basis, but most likely probably out of the eye of the media. Also, the picture itself was shot at the moment the bullet struck his head, maybe a little bit after. [video=youtube;D8PTh-MkxO4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8PTh-MkxO4[/video]

[img]http://digitaljournalist.org/issue0309/images/life/annefrank.jpg[/img] [quote=1941]Six million Jews died in the Holocaust. For many throughout the world, one teenage girl gave them a story and a face. She was Anne Frank, the adolescent who, according to her diary, retained her hope and humanity as she hid with her family in an Amsterdam attic. In 1944 the Nazis, acting on a tip, arrested the Franks; Anne and her sister died of typhus at Bergen-Belsen only a month before the camp was liberated. The world came to know her through her words and through this ordinary portrait of a girl of 14. She stares with big eyes, wearing an enigmatic expression, gazing at a future that the viewer knows will never come.[/quote] [img]http://digitaljournalist.org/issue0309/images/life/xray.jpg[/img] [quote=1896]To know something like the back of your hand is a timeless concept, one taken yet further by Wilhelm Konrad Roentgen. While working on a series of experiments with a Crookes tube, he noticed that a bit of barium platinocyanide emitted a fluorescent glow. He then laid a photographic plate behind his wife’s hand (note the wedding rings), and made the first X-ray photo. Before that, physicians were unable to look inside a person’s body without making an incision. Roentgen was the recipient of the first Nobel Prize for Physics in 1901.[/quote] [img]http://digitaljournalist.org/issue0309/images/life/biafra.jpg[/img] [quote=1969]When the Igbos of eastern Nigeria declared themselves independent in 1967, Nigeria blockaded their fledgling country-Biafra. In three years of war, more than one million people died, mainly of hunger. In famine, children who lack protein often get the disease kwashiorkor, which causes their muscles to waste away and their bellies to protrude. War photographer Don McCullin drew attention to the tragedy. "I was devastated by the sight of 900 children living in one camp in utter squalor at the point of death," he said. "I lost all interest in photographing soldiers in action." The world community intervened to help Biafra, and learned key lessons about dealing with massive hunger exacerbated by war-a problem that still defies simple solutions.[/quote] [img]http://todayspictures.slate.com/20070619/images/PAR91852.jpg[/img] [quote=1945]The center of the atomic bomb blast.

Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”[/quote]

This thread made me realize how many dead bodies I had seen in my lifetime. Everything on a photograph is inanimate, I guess that's what makes a photograph of a dead body acceptable. Looking at these kind of make me happy. Happy that I have never been in one of those pictureworthy situations. The bodies have piled up many times in the past. This could happen again. But the very existence of these pictures help humanity as a whole. We're looking at ourselves in a mirror, and all we can say is "we let this happen". Not you, not me, humanity as a whole. I think that now we have all of this behind us, and the photos to tell us what humans did to each other in the past, we have the potential to become better humans.
