    I think the diary would be improved by following your suggestion.  But calling it "violence porn" accuses the diarist of an ill motive.  Is that what you meant to do?

    If your issue is still Democrat vs. Republican, you've been punked by the Oligarchy.

      was to shock the senses of the reader.

      And the choice of words was intended to convey that.

      Do you think that's overharsh?

        Putting it that way reflects a tactical disagreement, and a legitimate one.  I think the diarist is within his rights, too, but would have been more effective with a link and a warning rather than the photo itself.

        I don't want to labor the issue, but I did want to answer.  What happened to Kelly Thomas is more important than any differences we commenters may have with the diarist.

        If your issue is still Democrat vs. Republican, you've been punked by the Oligarchy.

            desire/ motive and obviously, have not been to Fullerton with us.

            The group with Kelly Thomas father holds up the pick, to shock and awe those watching the protests as to how brutal an ordeal it was.

            As stated before, it is also on the Friends of Fullerton website as well.

            I will take all pics down - when (and if) justice is done!

            Verbal repetitive reinforced Bull S; is MSM weapon of mass destruction!

              for you to put it behind a link.

              I hope Mr. Thomas' family can find justice.
