Okay, now that is f*cked up and this is only happening because she's suing a powerful collection of people.

BUT. BUT.

The argument they're making isn't wrong. You should have to have some standard of proof that these photos did the damage to which you allege. And given the totality of what occurred... this is so far down the totem pole that the state will reasonably be able to argue that the grief is from the tragedy, not anything to do with photos.

Everyone who disseminated those photos privately should be fired, unless the photos were sent to them and that recipient filed an immediate report about the activity. However, to my knowledge, these photos were never publicised, never seen by the Bryant family, and really the only reason the lawsuit came to light is hearsay.

Incidentally, I'm not in the morbid crowd like these cops were, but do the deceased in a public accident have a "right to privacy" from privately disseminated pictures? I mean, I know the Dale Sr. thing was kinda farked up and they ruled against the photos being released, but that again was a) a case involving releasing photos to the public (and likely publication ib tabloids) and b) those were autopsy photos, which should NEVER be released as they're part of an official medical examination.

Let's just not use the word crazy.  It's insensitive to women.

Pretty farked up.  I get why they have to do it, but, how can they prove she didn't sufffer what is in essence, unquantifiable?  "mrs bryant, were you a little bit pissed off, or a shiatload of angry/upset?"  how can they peer into her heart?  Kinda silly but mainly farked up.

I 100% get why the Bryant family would be hurt and distressed by people passing these photos around like they're some kind of bar joke.

On the other hand, there's an entire branch of journalism (TMZ) that peddles in this type of rubbernecking.

She must be hurting for money. Understandably the Kobe death was tragic. But she doesn't even seem to be trying to move on with her life.

Kobe Bryant's wife. Hurting for money. That's what you're gonna go with?

L.A. legal slime. And I'm 2nd gen L.A. It can be the greatest town while other parts of the system are the scumiest. The cops have always leaned towards the scummy side. I drove through the '65 riots with my mon one night to check on her best friend, friend's elderly mother and toddler. I was only 7 and already knew the riots were about racism in the police force running rampant. Fast forward to the Rodney King riots where the cops got away with blatent violent racism AGAIN, this time on video and now this, And inbetween them all, nothing ever changes with the pigs. American S.S. gotta be reigned in.

Well, she also sued the pilot's grieving family.  Either she's hurting for money or just a monster.  The former almost seems preferable.

Obviously if those pics were released they would hurt the families of the crash. You don't need an exam for that.

That "pilot" killed her husband and daughter.

And what did the family of the pilot have to do with the accident.

But in that case you'd have the possibility of the pictures being shown to them on top of the obvious profit motive for whoever sold, purchased, and published the photos.

None of those things are alleged to have occurred here, as far as I understand.

LOL, might as well consult a soothsayer or roll the bones. None of these allegations are remotely prove-able in a scientific sense, it's all about feelings.

Considering the farking Sheriff tried (and failed) to sweep this under the rug, they gotta get serious about cleaning up their shiat. No more lawsuits, send these farkers to jail.

Sure, and the pilot also died.  So what blame does the pilot's wife and kids bear?  This is Vanessa commiserating over dead spouses by suing their estate and when she wins evicting the grieving wife and kids.  Sounds peachy.

Or maybe the richer-than-God Bryant family should realize both families suffered a tragedy and not try to make someone's misery worse.  But that's just my take.
