Yes, we should have another thread for this. Maybe there's a way to move the existing discussion to a new thread? There's one interview in particular I'm hoping to find which might even pique your interest, Niall, although I can't be sure of that since you haven't agreed with me on much of anything thus far!Yes, that's because it was taken after the vehicle was winched out of the creek into which it crashed. You're unlikely to find any close-up images from the crash scene depicting the vehicle itself because it is standard practice for the media not to do so - in part because emergency responders keep them back, in part because it's commonly understood that it's disrespectful to take footage for the purpose of public dissemination of a car accident, particularly one in which dead and badly broken bodies are inside and around the vehicle.
Yes, I mentioned that earlier, and suggested it's likely because that fourth door was removed after the vehicle was retrieved and stored.
Our view of the front (in profile) is obscured in the first photo by the bright flood-lights. I don't see why it would have been deliberately staged this way so as to hide something from public knowledge. To believe or suspect that, I would first have to have evidence or reasonable suspicion that something of particular importance regarding this case was being hidden from public knowledge.
You clearly see a lot more to this incident than I do, but may I ask you to refrain from further discussing the Schoharie incident on this thread? You may start a separate thread if you have more to share on that matter. Back to the atrocities committed in Nova Scotia...
Since you brought up some additional points, this post is just to respond in that vein. It seems only fair, after all.
With regard to the bottom photograph, I didn't say or imply it was "deliberately staged." I pointed out how the photograph is pixilated and overly white in that one area (as compared to the quality of the rest of the photograph). As to why it is like that, I suggested it could be to mask something in that photo (such as a lack of damage, I speculated). "Deliberately staged" is something altogether different. It would be to set up the shot. I'm talking about what seems to have been done to the shot after the fact. And since my working hypothesis is that all these images are "found" images, then it could be relevant in that context.
You know, Niall, the fact that you see those two photos as depicting the same vehicle is rather astonishing to me! We do see even what's right in front of our eyes entirely differently.
And no, I don't agree that in the age of the internet especially there wouldn't be photographs indicative of a very serious crash, which didn't at all exist at the time of the accident. As for protecting the families, were the completely random, extreme, car wreck thumbnail "teasers" on the Schoharie Youtube videos meant to protect these families?
Anyway, thank you, Niall, for a rigorous debate; and, yes, on to Nova Scotia...
