Who wants to see pictures of a dead man?

Do you really want to see pictures of a dead Osama Bin Laden?

I don’t.

And, I’m glad the President has decided not to release them.

First of all, what would the pictures prove? They could be real or they could be doctored. Would you know the difference? Are you that well acquainted with Osama? I couldn’t look at a picture and say with 100% certainty that it was or wasn’t him. Pictures wouldn’t do a thing for me.

Second, are you that morbid? I don’t want to see images of a dead man, regardless of what he’s done.

Lastly, pictures would only stir people up more. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to take a chance on further offending other human beings by continuing the “celebration” of death we have seen since Sunday evening.

I’ve heard both sides of the argument, but I cannot support the idea of celebrating the death of another human being. I understand that justice must be served, but I do not think that celebration is the right action to follow said justice.
