Re: NY Post Cover Photo - Your thoughts on ethics??

I couldn't figure out how to post the picture and include any meaningful text.  Much to my surprise, the prior picture was the cover of the NY Post today.   As the story linked below notes, a NY Post freelance photographer caught at least 2 pictures of a man about to be run over and killed by a subway car.   : with the giant headline:  Doomed and wording stating "Pushed on the subway track, this man is about to die."

Needless to say, the cover has been controversial.  Thoughts?
