Juxtaposition of the Week: Pakistan Infant Criminals, Not Bug Splats

not a bug splat.jpegpakistan- infant arrested

Activist media saving Pakistani children from the West meets Western media framing threat to Pakistani children from Pakistan’s touchy government/legal system. (Thoughts welcome, on activist vs. traditional media, the Western lens or what strikes you.)

photo 2: STR/AFP/Getty Images. caption: This photograph taken on April 3, 2014 shows a Pakistani lawyer taking the thumb impression from nine-month-old toddler Mohammad Musa on a bail bond in Lahore. While many children of his age are still learning how to crawl, a nine-month-old boy in Pakistan has been accused of attempted murder in a case observers say highlights endemic flaws in the country’s legal system. Baby Mohammad Musa along with his father and other family members was booked for throwing rocks at gas company officials in the working-class Ahata Thanedaran neighbourhood on February 1, the family’s lawyer Chaudhry Irfan Sadiq told AFP.

Striking just because it shows (I assume) what it looks like when someone blows themselves up in a room.  Ghastly.

I had this bad dream last night that President Perry, in silly clothes, was meeting in TX with his new buddy, Musharraf. Guess he’s posing like a peacock cuz he thinks he’s found his Putin.

Although I don’t crop as a rule, the importance of the viral/historic White House “bin Ladin raid” photo deserves an exception. Key leaders with everything on the line. #2 Hillary Clinton.

Cell phone photo from firefight at bin Laden compound. Looks like soldier (right) near wall between 2 explosions with copter, low, just beyond.
(Beyond the drama, great example of what’s wrong with photo galleries. Who shot this? Who released this? At what stage was this? Etc.)
(photo: Reuters caption (via MSNBC): The compound is seen in flames after it was attacked late on May 1 in this still image taken from cellphone video footage.)
