1/ Gun violence and visual censorship: a running thread.
2/ Remember that rare/unusual shot from Va Beach? Or this frame from Christchurch in New Zealand? Once again this weekend, horrific acts of #gunviolence on American soil. But between police and media, the scenes are completely sanitized. While carnage reigns, we see no blood.
4/ Multiple shots of firefighters washing down street in Dayton. OTOH, a few bloodstains on the sidewalk is all.
5/ Alley behind Ned Peppers, 10 dead, 27 injured. No, not OK!
6/ With gun legislation off the table, the censorship of carnage is an implicit theme in this widely published, red stained protest photo from Dayton. 📷 @woolstonphoto @reuterspictures
7/ In domestic terrorism, we hardly even see media photos of injured in recovery. This, via @AP, was posted to #Beto Facebook. (Of course, many who see this w survivor of #ElPasoShooting will dismiss it as campaign photo op.)
8/ When white Americans commit mass murder, we hardly ever see carnage. In contrast, when it came to Islamic terrorism, its often the bloodier the better. #elpasoshooting #daytonshooting
