More ethics of the Saddam video

I just scanned the headlines on CNN.com and noticed this one: 10-year-old sees Hussein in noose, hangs self.

Now that only further complicates the ethical decisions I talked about in my previous post on Saddam’s death caught on camera. Who could have foreseen something this terrible happening? But, isn’t it also our responsibility to plan for the unforeseen circumstances of life? :shrug: Not that I’m passing judgment on anyone who ran the video/photos. Most everyone did to one extent or another. But this does raise some more questions worth thinking about.

Also, a point I meant to make earlier this week when I read this story on CNN, it is interesting to note how differently the tape of Steve Irwin (aka: the crocodile hunter) being killed by a stingray is being handled. Only one copy kept (or so they say) and given to his wife. Granted we’re talking about the difference between a dictator and a beloved TV personality. But still both much-publicized deaths caught on film.
