    Why would you feel compelled to post something like that? ...or is it just me that feels this is completely unnecessary???

    I agree, I don't think any purpose can be served by seeing these pics. We all know that these things happen but don't need to dwell on them.

    I am with Jim....not a great start to a wonderful group of people. I find this in really poor taste and very disgusting, it should be deleted...

    Disturbing. Nothing great about these shots.
    Please don't copy/save/print any of my images.

    Delete! Please! Absolutely no valid reason to share this. Nothing artistic here.

    well folks, he did warn us, and no one MADE us click it. Just be glad it's not some bloody mess. I once saw a cat in the middle of the street. already went over with once. She was in pain until a bus went over it and it still didn't die. It died about a min or two later. It was a truly saddening sight.

    If no one makes any more responses to it after this one, including the author, it'll just drop off the bottom. Still in very poor taste, regardless of the warning.

    I personally think this is very upsetting and not something i would ever post. I cant see why you would want to post something so terrible.

    Default Part of life...

    I agree that this is sad, but I don't think the poster presented this in any disrespectful or distasteful manner. This is part of life. It happens, whether we choose to acknowledge it or not.

    Great photography stirs all kinds of emotions; in the artist and the viewer. These images are no different, and FAR LESS graphic/emotional than 99.9% of photo-journalistic shots out there.

    Whether or not these photos were shot with artistic intent, I think the first image is great; it tells a story, the composition is cool, and it definitely stirs emotions within me. The second image however, doesn't do anything for me.

    Although this may upset some viewers, and it is very sad, I must say kudos to you for capturing something that most people would be too afraid/upset to capture. Morbid curiosity is not only ok, it's human nature! Just don't take it too far...

    This is MY opinion. I don't expect anyone to agree or argue it; it's just the way I think.

    It is very interesting to see the many reactions to this; you didn't post this as an experiment for a human psych class did you
