Saying that because there is a number of death threads makes it socially acceptable to mock the events is every bit as ignorant as the mocking is. I guess I shouldn't expect better than that from this society though, thanks for reminding me of that.


You know what? Poor taste or not, people are reacting to an article you posted. You chose it because of its extreme nature. You then did your best to promote it to other people. You yourself are forgetting that the victim is someone's family, and on top of the grief they are going through, they now have to deal with the fact that it is an international news story. This is something that you directly contributed to. How do you think the victim's family would react to YOU if they knew you had posted the story on a message board in a city a few hundred miles away? Do you think they would like the fact that you are using their tragedy to promote your doomsaying worldview? Do you think they would have any more respect for you than the people who made the jokes?

And for that what good are you doing? Is their something novel about graphic violence? Is there really a purpose to spreading it? Do you think people don't know we live in a violent world where bad things happen? Just because the concept is new to you, it doesn't mean that many or even most people didn't know it already. But because it IS new to you, and because you are struggling with it, you feel that everybody now has to be made to think like you. And you accomplish this by posting examples of human violence. And then you claim moral superiority.

After all these poor jokes about death, we must apologise and urn this poster's respect back.. the internet is serious business.


I like Jester, he's a good guy. But if you want to EARN his respect, I'd start by posting pics of Mattias Weinhandel.

If the head belonged to Mattias Weinhandl, there probably wouldn't be any jokes in this thread.

You know, I actually was thinking you probably meant it this way, but you can never be too careful on CDC.

It's kind of unusual that the killer took the head over 100km away to just leave it in an alley. I could understand taking it a long way from the body to hide it well or something, but to just leave it in an alley in a cardboard box? Big risk transporting it.


Perhaps he was planning on hiding it, but got into a situation where he feared being discovered, panicked, and just got rid of it ASAP.

I rarely, if ever, to offense to any joke. But this just seems wrong that majority of the responses so far have been attempts at making light of someone being murdered.

Again, this is not something that offends me, it just seems like CDC has hit a new low.

Your flaming limbo bar was a nice touch ;)

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

Damn. There's a psychopath loppin' peoples heads off out there. Thanks for the heads up, Jester.

:bigblush:


I wonder if you'd still be joking if the head in the box was placed in front of your house. You'd probably crap your pants.

I'm going to get flak for this, but I am being brutally honest, so I'll understand.


Clearly, this was a heinous crime, as all murders are. This man probably did not deserve to die. I pray for him and his family.

On the other hand, this man is someone I did not know. To sit here and type out grievances just does not seem right. If I didn't know him, I should leave it at a RIP, and a prayer.

As for the "making light" of someone being murdered, they're jokes. Nothing more, nothing less. There have been jokes on a far more distasteful scale, whatever anyone has said thus far is peanuts in comparison.

We can't dwell on sadness, or else humanity is in big trouble. :)


I don't know why you would even joke about a murder. There is a time or a place for these jokes. Its similar to someone making jokes about the genocides that occurred in WWII. Just because we don't know the people, doesn't make it right to make jokes about them being murdered. No one is saying to give prayers but making jokes about these things is pretty stupid.

jokes about a person's death are in pretty poor taste (time changes things of course, but when a death is recent, it's very low brow).
But it's a very good illustration of the state of our society.

Didn't happen to me so I don't care, lets make fun of it.

Sadly most people won't see the problem with that sort of mentality until they have some tragedy happen to someone they love, and then they see how callous and uncaring people are...


Well, I guess its all fun and games until it hits close to home. Although I don't see CDC reflecting society since most are preteens here. The more mature population of society don't make dumb jokes in these circumstances since they know better.

Damnit I knew I should have hid the head in a better place!!!


Do you know that this could be used against you in the court of law. It just takes one person to report this post to the police, joke or not.
