NY Post Subway Picture Causes Controversy.

This disturbing picture featured on the front page of the New York Post features a man desperately trying to get back onto a subway platform after being pushed onto the tracks by a deranged man. He was fatally struck by the train moments later. Maybe it’s just me, but if you had time to whip out your phone and take a picture then you had time to help drag this poor guy back onto the platform.

A professional and well respected photo journalist appeared on American daytime TV to defend the photographer’s actions. Basically he was saying that it just becomes second nature not to include yourself in the story but to observe and capture it as it unfolds. That’s all just peachy, but replace the man on the tracks with the photographer’s wife and let’s see how that theory holds up.
