8. There would be no reason to put you up for a hide.

You didn't even use a "real" expletive.

11. I wonder if anyone knows them... no doubt they wanted to be seen and publicly acknowledged








They jumped in front of a live news camera and obviously wanted the world to see and experience their antics. Maybe we all need to find out who these would-be stars are so we can celebrate the genius of their comedic cleverness, no?



(I'm sure some news organization is already on this, but will be quite interesting to see how they characterize their 'show')

12. If someone knows them it will probably be known shortly

unless the people that know them are as vile as they are.

14. Even then, because those kinds of people brag about such behavior, and so do their friends.

They'll all be sharing this "triumph" on social media.

17. I envision this response


I'm sure it's already written and rehearsed...

We were just enjoying the tree lighting festivities and playfully hugging on camera like people do. We didn't know they were broadcasting about a serious news story. We are too busy working all day to watch the news and had NO IDEA about the incident in question, and we certainly didn't know what we were doing could somehow be seen as mocking such a terrible incident. We were definitely not doing that. No way. We are completely innocent and were just trying to play funny-folks in the background of a live broadcast. We thought the reporter must be talking about the cold weather or the tree lighting.... etc etc

So we'll never hear about who they are unless someone does some "research".

maybe plaster their pics all over the place. I am sure their neighbors would like to know what they are living close too.

29. could not agree with you more

This is the height of arrogance. Were these people raised in a family of sociopaths? As a Buddhist, this is an opportunity to teach about the virtue of equanimity, which is seeing all people as equal. Equal in our suffering, because everyone has troubles and problems and misfortunes and disappointments and mistreatment and difficulties. Everyone, not just some, but everyone.

Everyone is equal in simply wanting to be happy and live a good life with a healthy body within a loving family in a society that is fair and offers opportunities for growth and improvement. Everyone, not just some, everyone.

What went wrong in the education of these people that they haven't incorporated these understandings about how we are all equal and want the same things? *That's a rhetorical question.* Seeing others from the viewpoint of equanimity takes practice. So yes, I hope someone publicly outs these people, so we can show our children and grandchildren (and everyone else for that matter) that arrogant, condescending behavior is not acceptable.

7. what a couple of mindless pigs


To mock another's death, another family's pain.

What is wrong with people? Do they not care that the man had a family who loved him? Do they think they have more value as human beings and we should all be amused at them?

I hope this couple gets paid back in kind and that they are completely humiliated.

Somebody dox these vomit-worthy pieces of scum.

I always found his first name and last name ironic, given that 'Peter' is also a word for something else

Those acts were staged. Creating bad karma for themselves; I hope we get to see it when it rebounds back on them.

27. What these ignoramuses don't realize is- now that the cops have had their behavior towards

brown skinned people affirmed by the system, it won't be long before they behave this way towards other groups of people and that it will include those with blond hair and blue eyes.
