In anticipation of the resurrection of 2022 we must think. The Resurrection, that is, the return from death, should make us promise ourselves mental recovery, but also wish our neighbor good enlightenment.
Especially to those who have lost it. Lately, the public is watching with anxiety the developments of the case of the deaths of the three children in Patras. The implications are as many as the responsibilities, from each stakeholder. Doctors, hospitals, medical examiners, police, lawyers, the media, and of course the perpetrator or perpetrators.
I mention responsibilities, as there are many who believe that if investigative journalism had not moved the issue, it would have gone to waste.
If you have Twitter, Facebook or Instagram accounts, you will see them constantly popping up relevant hashtags, which make it easier to reveal information. Information travels rapidly in every direction. Among them you will read the bitterness of the public, you will feel the agony of solving the case and punishing the guilty.
But you will also read the trolls who ridicule every situation, the wannabe judges, and the very vindictive who think and suggest to the public to take the law into their own hands.
Many spoke of an uneducated, uneducated audience, throwing the ball on the tiles.
Nobody talks about the moral perpetrator or rather to put it better, what motivates this whole situation.
We will dare to call it without a name: Money.
So today a print newspaper was published that featured on its front page, images of a dead baby. Photos with bruises and scars. How far will exploitation, inhumanity and mourning go?
The Code of Professional Ethics and Social Responsibility of member journalists of Ε.Σ.Η.Ε.Α what does he really say? Does he agree with hanging such pictures on the pegs of the stands? Is it legal to publish these images on the front page?
Do you know the purpose of the shop windows…. Better visibility of the consumer product we market means more profit. But death can not be a spectacle. The murders of three children are not a consumer product.
And because older children read here at iGuru.gr, you have to choose at your discretion: chapter D journalism, cannibalism, or commercialization? Everyone draws their own conclusions and takes whichever side they want.
Note: Personally, I am closely following the case, as if it turns out to be the crime of the century. The above opinions do not support (and do not refer to) the possible perpetrators of the case.
Note 1: Of course we will not use the images that were originally released for forensic use, as our audience is not medical examiners, or just judges.
