Another classic example of why you don't use just any old photo for your ads.  Never know what story may be behind it.

Maybe they are trying to tell us something? Maybe it's a trophy and they're having the last laugh shoving the truth right in our faces?

I wouldn't put it past those French bastards.

How long till Trayvon's image is used?

I expect to see "Kemosabe" after that headline. Missing a few "minor" words there, Subby?

People are stupid, lazy and completely unwilling to pay to use a stock photo even if it's only a pittance when the internet has all them pretty pictures for free.

Not nearly as bad as what I thought of.  Take Trayvon's "thug" picture, caption it with 'Don't let this be the last face you see when patrolling your neighborhood'  at the bottom 'brought to you by the NRA'.

Yea, I'll sit next to you on the ride, I get the window seat though.

Sad that the murder still hasn't been solved. Who would kill a little guy like that? Poor kid.

Actually, use one of Zimmerman the time of the incident: shaved head, unshaven face, looks "Hispanic", etc.  That would be maximum trolling.

This isn't exactly in the same vein but for over the last few years I've been amused by a banner outside a local PC repair store. Only because the stock image they used was the old news is exciting guy. They just recently updated to a more professional image though :(

/would never go there

"This is to punish unacceptable behavior that has caused considerable damage to Gregory's parents," Thierry Moser, the Villemins' lawyer, told Reuters.

I get that they are pissed-off because they used the photo. And I get being upset by it. But if that photo caused "considerable damage" to them 30 years after he was murdered, I would have to go ahead and assume that they have gotten rid of all of his pictures and reminders from their home and that they don't look at his photos ever. That and they may need to see someone about some drugs to help them with their grief after 30 years.

Where's that picture box with the infant remains in it?  I think that would make a great addition here.

Great. Just great. Not only am I now hell-bound for sure, but my supervisor demanded to see what caused it, and now HE'S GONNA BE ON THE SAME BUS.

Thanks a lot, jackass.

They're trying to attract business, not repel it.

Just slap a "not on our watch" caption on it, claim your raising awareness and provoking thought then slap a disclaimer about not actually promising the child will still have a pulse when you get back and they are onto a winner.

Trade Secret: how attached could they have gotten to him?


Considering the kid's dad murdered one of the suspects (suspect who happened to be his cousin), I'd say a lot.


/messed up case, botched police investigations and muder on top of murder is why it's still talked about in France so long after the facts.
