It is concerning people have to watch this stuff to have an impact left upon them.

I think if I was the "CCW" type I'd watch these sorts of things carefully to know how to react and desensitize

Of course just reading about it leaves an impact on you. All I'm saying is that viewing it gives a level of "realness" you don't get by just reading. It's one thing to hear about something, totally different and more impactful to see it.

I think moop's point is that it's problematic that people would need to watch the video to take it more seriously; I don't see where he's disagreeing with you. It's granted that the impact and effect is more visceral if you witness people die rather than read the body count.

The correct response to 49 deaths is not to shrug. We shouldn't have to watch it to be seriously disturbed by it, and to have some impetus to prevent such occurrences.

But then at this point it's so easy to find something to be disturbed about, maybe desensitization was inevitable.

How many people, like alex jones, claimed sandy hook was fake because there were no photographic evidence? It's horrific, but perhaps it will at least silence those who look to mock the families of the victims as it is so often done in the U.S.

I think people are over analyzing why someone would watch the video. Simple curiosity could be all it is for some.

This. Exactly this.

That we live in a world where people are curious to watch people die is troubling to me.

This is why people on the extremist right don't want good schools to exist:

The reply said: “Just a ordinary White man, 28 years old. Born in Australia to working class, low income family.

“My parents are of Scottish, Irish and English stock. I had a regular childhood, without any great issues. I had little interest in education during my schooling, barely achieving a passing grade.”

He added: “I am just a regular White man, from a regular family. Who decided to take a stand to ensure a future for my people.”
Well-informed/socialized people don't commit these atrocities.

Also, he's really hitting the republican talking points from across an ocean:

The manifesto said he carried out the attack “to show the invaders that our lands will never be their lands, our homeland are our own and that, as long as a white man still lives, they will NEVER conquer our lands and they will never replace our people” Yahoo News reports.
“Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,” Mr. King tweets in his endorsement of Mr. Wilders in Dutch elections.

Tell me the 'right' perspective then? As tron said in the politics thread, this was filmed as it was as propaganda to inspire others to do it & the perspective helps to desensitize others to those 'sights.'

There could be many reasons one watches the video.
