I write this letter feeling extremely let down and disgusted. Maybe I should have waited a day or so until I cool down before I send this letter, but I can’t.
I thank and appreciate the frum websites that bring us minute-by-minute breaking news that is generally censored and customized for the frum person’s eyes and mind.
But how low have we sunk that we don’t even take a step back and look at what we sometimes do? In the midst of a serious tragedy, as a young yungerman is snatched from us, why do we feel the need to publicize and post the gory, uncensored video of the accident taking place?
It’s bad enough to have to read and post the unfortunate heartbreaking tragedy, but is there really any logical reason to post the video? The poor victim isn’t even buried yet.
Do some websites feel unaccomplished if they don’t post the video? Are we trying to teach a lesson on yenim’s cheshbon, while both grossing people out and breaking their hearts?
Unsigned and disgusted in Lakewood!
