Where is the hero tag?

Where is the sideshow of the crashes?
Is the head dead yet?

Since when is it shameful to look at crash sites when one drives by? Isn't that an extremely common occurrence?
 
2012-08-16 11:43:35 PM
So I should drive faster when I see a wreck? Got it.

Join the 21st century. They're not ghouls. They're citizen journalists.

Rubberneckers, people who stand on the left side of escalators, and people who leave shopping carts in the middle of parking lots are the scum of the earth, and deserve to be hunted for sport.

RTFA. They're not just looking, they're snapping photos.

I approve.

No, you should learn to read.

Actually, I think ghouls is the perfect word.
Taking pictures of a horrible car wreck is pretty damn creepy behavior. Are they planning to upload them to Facebook or do they do this for some kind of private collection?
 
2012-08-17 01:28:12 AM
I was there. I was appalled at this hideous invasion of privacy by the police, so I set up a camera to capture them capturing people taking pictures.

I witnessed similar behavior when a tornado ripped through my town last year. Lots of out of people in town cars driving around, staring, getting out and gawking, even taking pictures of a home with a big tree through the portion of their roof that wasn't torn off while the people who lived there sat on the front porch.
farking disgusting behavior.

I really do need to use the sarcasm font.

Well, if it's anyone I want enforcing morality, it's the police department.

Looking, I can see. It's human nature. But taking pictures of some poor fool's car accident? What the fark is wrong with people these days?
 
2012-08-17 05:26:06 AM
I only take video of horrific accidents so I can upload them to Youtube.

People who do this for their own titillation are farking messed up.
 
2012-08-17 05:33:26 AM
I hope they get into horrific accidents of their own, and since they have no problem using phones while driving it's not terribly unlikely. 

But this guy:
i.dailymail.co.uk

Is there any part of him that doesn't scream "douche"?
 
2012-08-17 05:36:48 AM
Simple rubbernecking I can understand; it's human nature to be interested in the unusual, and part of that may even be altruism without the viewer even knowing it, looking at the horrific crash and being concerned about the people within. Taking pictures, though? Yeah, I agree with the author of TFA. That's just ghoulish. What, you want to save the image to jaggoff to later?

Hard at work capturing more of these callous bastards on video.
 
2012-08-17 05:53:21 AM
I used to work with a guy who worked part-time as one of those guys who went out and collected people's remains from car wrecks on the highway for the coroner and all, right? plastic bags, man, full of bloody meat. That's the cool stories I heard, motherfarker.
 
2012-08-17 05:55:35 AM
I hear at the really juicy accidents, the last thing they do before they reopen the road is have the firemen hose it off.
 
2012-08-17 06:04:19 AM
I once saw the cab of an eighteen wheeler flipped upside down and totally crushed. I thought, 'DEAR GOD! Please let me go in a similarly spectacular manner!'
 
2012-08-17 06:04:31 AM
"Police shame 80 ghouls..."

You people have all been preparing for the wrong kind of apocalypse.
 
2012-08-17 06:05:12 AM
So, did the woman survive? I read the article three times, and I may have completely missed it, but I was more interested in that.
 
2012-08-17 06:05:39 AM
But no I didn't slow down to take pics. One glance was enough.
 
2012-08-17 06:08:04 AM
What else are you going to jerk off to later? Your memory? Yeah right!

I'll sometimes take pictures to show to my daughter. When she gets her driver's license, she will be the most careful driver evar.

/or maybe she'll become a cop and take pictures of rubberneckers instead of helping the crash victim
 
2012-08-17 06:23:48 AM
They should do the same to those turnip-brained numpties that fall asleep at green lights.
 
2012-08-17 06:24:08 AM
we at the daily mail absolutely abhor these ghouls
but, if you got any good shots, please call our photo desk on.......................
 
2012-08-17 06:26:43 AM
In other words, the police don't want photo evidence of them TSA-ing the contents of the cars.
 
2012-08-17 06:27:07 AM
Last year I crashed into a traffic light and knocked the whole thing over onto the street, which ended up blocking all the lanes going both directions. My consolation for wrecking my car was that at least I caused one hell of a traffic jam.

Next up, cops will pray at accident scenes.

All the better to do nothing and feel like they're helping.

I agree. They should have stopped traffic completely and arrested anyone dumb enough to snap cell-phone pics and had each of their cars towed as well.

Sounds reasonable.
 
2012-08-17 06:28:55 AM
And the article about the horrible people who take pictures of a crash scene ends with a picture of the crash scene, so, you know, us non-horrible people can see the crash scene, taken by a journalist who is absolutely not one of those horrible people.

If you haven't noticed, any Daily Mail article is about 95% LARGE pictures by volume.

How did they get their steering wheels all the way the other side?
 
2012-08-17 06:54:29 AM
I don't understand some of you people. You say it's only human nature to want to peek but anything beyond that... say, taking a picture... well, now you're being ghoulish. Why? It's all the same thing. It's human nature to be curious about such things. And while it may be morbid curiosity, I don't see a difference between wanting to get a quick peek and wanting to take a picture to really get a good look. They're just two different ways of satisfying our natural human curiosity.

If cameras had been invented, these guys would be taking photos. 

It's not ghoulish, it's human nature. More like chimpanzee-ish.

Oh, really? I didn't make it that far.

Isn't it crazy? England has enough money for universal health care AND a ghoul cam. The United States has barely enough money to pay Michelle Bachmann her subsidies and adoption stipends.

The M1 in Northamptonshire between junction 15 and 16 close to where the crash happened. The road was closed to 11 hours

11 hours? Are you farking kidding me? I was driving home once and a crash up ahead shut the motorway for about 2 hours. I was really quite miffed. How long does it take to scrape a dead person and car bits off the road? If the person is still alive then get a helicopter in to lift them out and then clear the road. Or just clear one lane, it's better than nothing. People also want to know why they have been delayed for many hours, which is a huge reason for why they stare. Also people like to see dead stuff.

Alternatively have some way to block up the road at the previous junction so no one new can get into the jam, and then let people begin turning around and backing out. I 'll let some road planner figure out how to do that without having people crashing into each other.
