A Real Moral Dilemma

Lisa has a very interesting story that she blogged about earlier this week. Here is an excerpt and a link.

So here was the dilemma the cameraman faced. If he broadcast that footage, he would have to live with the knowledge that the mother of the dead boy had seen it. She would never be able to forget the image of her crying son, pleading to be allowed to tell his mother that he loved her just before he died. She would never forget the image of those masked armed men, of seeing her son’s lifeless body flop sideways to the ground.

The cameraman, who had several children and a wife to support, would also have to worry about the militants hunting him down and shooting him for broadcasting the footage.

On the other hand, if the cameraman did not broadcast the footage, he would be hiding the truth about summary executions from the public.”

    It’s a tough one, but given his occupation the footage should have been shown.
