I remember a journalist at the time of the various beheading videos saying that he was compelled to report on such things but urged people not to act on their curiosity and seek out clips. He says it will haunt him until the day he dies. Similarly Werner Herzog when he listened to the audio recording of Timothy Treadwell and his girlfriend's death at the hands of grizzly bears. Says it was so disturbing he cant even talk about it.
I saw an old dear get run over outside the newsagents on the corner of Harehills Lane and Compton Road. The sounds she made lying there stayed with me for a long time. I felt useless, a few of us tried talking to her but I don't it registered.
I remember watching a documentary where they played the Kenneth Bigley footage. They stopped the moving images but continued with some of the sound. Fucking horrific.
Jesus mate that sounds awful. I wonder if I would be practical and strong or just fucking useless and upset. Guess I'd rather not find out.
