Death on tape: Where's the line?

Was it appropriate for television networks to repeatedly show disturbing video of Eric Garner being choked by a police officer, given that Garner died afterward? Carl Bernstein and Dr. Gail Saltz weigh in on the journalistic and psychological questions raised by the video.

    Superb post but I was wanting to know in case you could write a litte a lot more on this subject? I�d be really thankful in case you could elaborate just a little bit more. Thanks!

    No it was totally acceptable. That in its own way is rebellious, there saying that they are not going to let this seem like this never happened. And that's the problem. People thought normal loves were still going to go on, but normal loves took a break when two different officers killed two different African American males. And yes both of them committed a crime but if both of them were able to go to court... I gearentee you that death would not have been the choice of punishment.
