feelings toward watching beheading clips and ogrish.com

Ok, I have sort of brought this up before but do any of you watch the videos of the executions of americans in Iraq? For some damn reason I do and I get so upset each time. They have them at Ogrish.com and everytime there is a new one released, their servers bog real bad so i know i am not the only one.

Do you think it is wrong for sites like Ogrish and Rotten to exist? do you think it is discrasful (sp) toward the victims and the families? Is it part of human nature to want to view things like that?

I would just like opinions on the viewing of the videos, right or wrong to watch them, ideas on the sites etc.

Re: feelings toward watching beheading clips and ogrish.com

If that happened to your brother or dad or best friend, would you want the video to be up?

And while we live in a society that is crazy about violence, it is one of these 1st amendment things that drives people nuts.

Re: feelings toward watching beheading clips and ogrish.com

I never watch or that stuff. I never look at traffic accidents as I travel either. I've often marveled at the apparent thirst for blood a lot of people have

Re: feelings toward watching beheading clips and ogrish.com

yeah it's not something I feel the need to 'add' to my day. I've got enough problems without seeing one of my fellow Americans die on video. It's horrible.

Re: feelings toward watching beheading clips and ogrish.com

I really can't answer why, except to say that perhaps as you mature you grow less interested and more affected by stuff like that. Maybe most who do watch those videos have never seen something grotesque up close and personal. I don't click on the links, personally. I stumbled into a video like that without warning on labusas.org a couple of years ago and didn't appreciate it.

Like ND4SPD wrote, I wouldn't want to see someone I loved on a site like that. Imagine how the family members feel.

I was stupid enough to watch the first one, and wish that I had not.

Re: feelings toward watching beheading clips and ogrish.com

I think it's important for them to be out there. It does not allow us to forget that this stuff does happen. I can almost guarantee you that if video of what was going on in concentration camps in Nazi Germany had been available, it would've seriously altered world events. It forces governments to know if they do horrible things, people will know. I think vids like this are the BEST justification for the first Amendment, not an unfortunate consequence of it.

Re: feelings toward watching beheading clips and ogrish.com

Just because you don't have the will power to not watch horrable things, the fact that they are out there does not make it bad. I want it out there, why, because I beleve in freedom of choice, I don't want others choosing what I can and cant see. Hate it, disagree with it, shout to heavens how terrable it is, fine. But dont force your views and beliefs on me. I watched the first beheading video, and it repulsed me. I have no desire to watch the latest one. But like LTL said, good can come of terrable things. Terrable things like this should not be forgotten or they will be repeated in the future.
