To Click Or Not

We are, to some degree, our own editors when we choose to click or not. Perhaps we'll soon be seeing videos of all such violent deaths that a ready cell phone happens to record.  To say that one hopes not is not to wish for censorship but for consistent, respectful restraint.

-- Philip Gourevitch on the Walter Scott video, The New Yorker, 9 April 2015
