I’m reading through the comments, and I’m absolutely mortified. Are we as human beings not only condoning, but actively supporting the death of another person, regardless of their criminal history? This is what news sensationalism does to us as people. It degrades the human condition, and afflicts us with a collective sense of cognitive dissonance, so that the plight of others is nothing more than another reality show to be watched on television. Personally, this event, its reporting and the multitude of other car chases that are covered every year are far too similar to the horrifying scene of Montag being hunted in Fahrenheit 451.
