19th of April 1995. Seemed to be a normal day in Oklahoma City .
That is someone's child! It is wrong to show that picture to the public!
It was Just the opposite as the 15th of April, 1995 was the day of the Oklahoma city bombing. 759 persons sustained injuries, 167 persons died, 83 survivors were hospitalized, and 509 persons were treated as outpatients.(Mallonee et al.)
They're using the child for money.
It's a picture of a corpse! It's inappropriate!
That photo is extremely disturbing and should't be shown.
One journalist named Joe Strupp captured a fireman cradling a burned infant in a picture. This picture later went to be a controversial issue and as well later won Stupp a Pulitzer Prize
Despite the praise of some people for Strupp's picture capturing the tragedy in a emotional picture. There are criticisms/protests for the publication of the picture.
These are some of the arguments that were or could've been used by writers and others to protest the photo. Most arguments claimed that the photo was ethically wrong to show to the public because it was graphic, inappropriate, etc .
Strupp's photo did capture a tragedy. However was it ethical to show the photo to the public. Strupp didn't show any evidence that it was the right thing to do, but said the photo was used well. In reality however was it really used well or did violate human ethics? The arguments some writers and others made just might solve that question
