Pictures of Saddam being lead to the gallows. Should they have been shown on television news channels?

These picutres have been shown repeatedly on BBC News 24, I personally find it quite distasteful and keep having to change the channels.

Yes, it's made sevaral million people very happy in Iraq and the rest of the world and there's no doubt that he was guilty of the crimes he was accused of but I don't think that his hanging should have been televised and certainly not shown every five minutes on the news before 9pm.

    Under God the U.S is in huge trouble...but if the Americans kill lots of people due to the Death Penalty, why not show them as well?

    I beleive being in captivity was bad enough suffering. Unfortunatly the U.S. will be revenged against this act, and somthing tells me i'll be here to live it and suffer it as well.

    I beleive they shouldn't have showed his execution because they treat him as a dog. It's true about his violent act, but he was already suffering in captivity. It sadly shows that the Americans as just as bad as Hussein or any other killer. Americans continue to involve in affairs they should never stick their nose in. Can't you see this "war in Iraq" is becoming another "Vietnam" for us!

    Please have World Peace!

    The media's interest is a double edged sword. to ensure that them to maintain rankings severe, they could document sensational acts of human violence and grandio's mayhem. regrettably, it somewhat is whatthe public desires to work out and hear. The late P.T. Barnum stated that many instances over the years,"supply the conventional public what they choose, regardless if it good or incorrect." Sensationalism sells, the late large Peter Jennings pronounced stay from hundreds of warm zones international and the conventional public enjoyed him. The cracodile hunter, confronted quite a few styles of threat interior all of his shows, the conventional public enjoyed him. the information would be very slanted and image, I accept as true with you. On a good word, they're placing out to tone down a number of their somewhat image information shows. wish this responded your quandry.....

    I agree, it should not of been televised AT ALL. I just answered another question on this topic and posted one myself. I will say the same thing for each question I see on this..

    The president is an idiot, hanging the guy was NOT NEEDED, having him in captivity was ENOUGH, and if they were worried that the guy would escape or something crazy, they could of INCREASED SECURITY. whatever

    What he did was sad. What happened to him sad. The death of

    any humanis certainly nothing to gloat about. With that said people do need proof that he is gone and there is closeure.

    I think we should see the pics, and I think that the execution should be sold on DVD. We can send a copy to all our troops for Valentine's day.
