It strange, but in relation to wild life a lot of wildlife photographers and film makers have a rule not to interfere with nature, so if a big cat is stalking a deer they don't shout to warn it. Should we not also be detatched in relation to Carters's picture and view it as nature at work? Also, in this case perhaps the child was beyond help and couldn't be saves therefore, taking the shot and having it broadcast around the world might have aided others who were in the same situation.
How many times have we walked past a person begging on the streets and ignored them? Might that person be so disheartened that they go away and hang themselves, and in that situation should we be held responsible? Think of a doctor who recieves two injured people but can only treat one and that person makes a full recovery and then goes and kills someone, would we blame the doctor for making the wrong choice?
The point I'm trying to make is we may all have to make such judgements in our lives, and only people who were there at the time could say whether we crossed the line or not.
