Hoe down in Thailand and the essentials of bad taste
*Special update, 9/16: I have removed blurred images I pulled from a photo site (and its URL) purporting to be photographs of the slain bodies of David Miller and Hannah Witheridge. All you sick fucks can find the photos that live on the internet if you really want… This blog is not worth the trouble, or the guilt, that result from my posting such insensitive stuff. There was a tremendous spike in views…but I don’t need it. The post will remain, however.*
I’ve rethought again. The internet is our reality. If you don’t want to live it, don’t. I had a dream last night.
I read of the unfortunate and brutal murder of two British tourists in Thailand yesterday (Monday). Graphic photos purporting to be the murdered couple appear on removed. Not sure how long they’ll live online.
Here they are, weakly cleaned up, sanitized, for this classy and restrained blog.
The man found dead on a beach on the Thai island of Koh Tao has been named as 24-year-old David Miller. His companion was Hannah Witheridge, 23, from Great Yarmouth, according to The Sun.
Police launched a double-murder inquiry after two naked people with horrific head wounds were found beaten to death on a beach on Monday at 11am local time.
Investigators found a bloodied hoe nearby, which they believe caused the pair’s “gruesome” head injuries.
There is a third photo I am refraining from posting due to its graphic, sexual nature. I am very concerned about tasteful presentation.
Anyway, earlier on Reddit, the imgur photos were posted on a subreddit I frequent and it occurred to me.
“If he killed the woman with a hoe and the man with a rake, can this be considered a hate crime?” I wisely noted, posed.
Think about it. That is one of the most insightful freakin’ things I’ve let these fingers type out. Brilliant!
To which a subredditor responded with a very relevant Youtube video.
Fuck it all. Western Civilization is waning gibbous.
