Susan G: Yay, let's promote this stupid, boring photo of a coward instead of a meaningful one.
Alisha Griffin: Susan G How isn't this meaningful? I fail to see how a picture of an ASSASSIN (cowardly or not) has no meaning to you or anyone else. It isn't a picture of refugees or pollution, sure, but it captures the rage and hate felt by many today that leads to such violence. It is anything but boring.

Chess Master: doesn't this disrespect the deceased, and almost if not give praise to the killer? I think giving that photo an award is a terrible idea that should be redacted.
Alisha Griffin: Brandon If we never see him, how would we know he was real? Also, in my opinion, the picture doesn't really show him in a positive or negative light, just him committing this act, however vile.
