What scares me more than anything is this concept of Internet Justice. Very strong opinion started flying about this photographer as soon as the news hit. We didn't know anything back then. We still don't know much about the facts. A lot of what was said and is said is speculation. Yet, it didn't stop people from forming very definite and strong opinion. Now, this photographer is a public enemy of the week.
Also, I ask myself.... what would I have done if something this unexpected and out of ordinary thing happened? It will probably take me few seconds to figure out what happened. It will probably take few more seconds to figure out the reasonable course of action - which probably doesn't stand the test of the Internet Justice - which could made ME the enemy of civilization of the week.
Until of course, something else happens and everyone if focused on THAT.
