American national identified as Harold Smith found dead inside a rented apartment in Mangnao.
I saw a picture on FB. It looks like he is sleeping peacefully.
It is disgusting how Filipinos post pics of the dead. It must be an Asian flaw. I saw a video of a crash in Russia. They blurred the dead.
What's your obsession with a decomposing meat sack? It certainly doesn't care anyone is taking a picture of it.
Obviously there are different cultural expectations on how the deceased are handled and respected. Differences in cultures aren't flaws. Expecting others to bow to and live up to your cultural expectations while you live in their country on the other hand....I know where I would tell you to shove that attitude.
Compare a sack of meat with a dead person, sorry I can't follow you. My problem with show pictures of dead people in the media who are victims of a traffic accident, or get killed in another way, with a knife or gun, for example, is the lack of respect for the victims family, it can be somebody's parents, kids, brother, sister, husband or wife
I have to agree with the other comment mate. If you dont like it leave. Find a place that suits your english attitude. .......
Clearly it's not a World of "sugar and spice and everything's nice." No one should be wearing rose colored glasses in this day and age. It gets a whole lot worse than seeing one dead individual in a photo.
In 2019 it is estimated that 36 million died of Hunger. I would rather every cell phone zombie saw that image rather than Candies falling in Candy crush or in a trance over a blue and white thumbs up on Facebook.
(imagine the faces of the 40 million that currently live in some form of slavery) Post those on Facebook and I am confident the World would become a better place pretty darn fast. Maybe reality sucks but it only "IS" because of a furry fluffy cute fantasy illusion. IMHO
Funny point of view, it's not if I or other members here can handle to see a dead body but about close relatives to the victims shown in public media. You can always find something worse, than what you have seen, to compare with, that will no justify anything. I for my part do not carry rose colored glasses and will have the right to express what I like or dislike as long as it's not about politics in the Philippines
I do not understand what this is all about. Come on now; Death is just as much a part of life as being born. Dead is dead regardless of what species. Case in point, my younger brother died 30 day before his body was discovered and 2 years before anyone in my family found out. My sister found out because of ancestry dot com. He was so far along in decomposition a photo would not have done much good. I have a combat photo taken during the Viet Nam war that would get me band from this form for life if I were to post it.
So what is this post all about? A PHOTO or a dead American?
For me I feel insulted when some decides that I can not handle a photo of a dead man or anything else for that matter. This old earth will continue to spin whether there are any living thing on it or not.
My two centavos.
