  1. Is it really necessary to show graphic photos of car accident scenes? I can’t imagine the pain, stress and worry that it causes families when they know their loved ones are on the road,in the area where an accident has occurred and the vehicles in a photo look like the ones shown on this website and others, perhaps even before the victims have been identified. It is insensitive, in poor taste and totally unnecessary.

  2. My thoughts and prayers to the family – I agree Patti Roberge. Brenda, have some decency and respect. Please remove these photos
