In the digital age where we are flooded by endless amounts of meaningless photos, all thanks to camera phones and digital cameras, every now and then we are confronted with an image that truly moves us. Well what kind of image is more moving than a person photographing his killer seconds before he gets murdered.
The disturbing image you see before you came from 35-year old Caloocan City Councilman Reynaldo Dagsa while he was photographing his family on his camera phone. Reynaldo took one bullet to the arm, and another to the chest, and was found dead on the scene. The suspected killer was immediately caught due to the family discovering the photo in the phone. The shooter was identified to be Michael Gonzales, and the investigators feel there might have been two accomplices involved.
Michael Gonzalez is a known criminal that was sent to jail by Reynaldo, and so this was obviously a revenge killing. Since the event happened in the Philippines I’m sure they will bury this guy alive the next day. If this happened in America, we’d have to clothe and feed this bastard till he dies of old age. I swear that our country is too soft on criminals.
It’s still very surreal that the bombardment of photos has literally documented every moment in our present history. In the days of film, every time you took a photo, I’m sure it cost about 40 cents. Photos meant something in those days, but now they are cheap and disposable. 100 years from now, when historians study our generation, they will know every thought we had, what kind of breakfast we ate, the color of our shit, and who murdered us. Creepy.
