Quote# 125530

A 19-year-old aspiring model was killed by a train during a photo shoot at the tracks.

Heartbreaking? Reports released in 2 successive days for what? An unmarried pregnant 19 year old from a broken family who was working on her second child with a 25 year old bum outside of Houston gets run over by a BNSF freight train for lack of common sense. Great story. Next!

Oh, fuck you. Dismissing the death of someone who hasn't wronged you in any way like that is a dick move, and being an asshole about it is unacceptable. Next!

Your humanity and empathy underwhelm me. If you really don't care, you could have omitted mentioning her altogether. I fail to see why your negative opinion should matter to the rest of us.

I hope her family don't read this insensitive rubbish.

In my experience, people like that always find excuses to denigrate or dismiss the suffering and/or death of pretty much anyone, making exceptions only for those whom they particularly like. They don't (usually) lack empathy so much as ration it very selectively.

Or as TV Tropes says it: Moral Myopia.

Though overly callous, I have to admit that this is the business of the unfortunate family (and, I suspect, their soon-to-be-retained attorney(s)), the railway safety guys, and whatever voice in the head is supposed to suggest to photographers that certain things might be a bad idea - and, pointedly, not the general public.

A 19 year old, engaged, employed, educated woman from an enormous but solidly middle class family expecting her first child died during a photoshoot for her job as a model. A photo shoot that I'll say was terribly ill advised and disruptive during operating hours but I'd point the finger at her agency for that detail.

Somehow that retranslates to hobos and hookers wandering around in a stupor and at least one made-up baby. That or they've somehow confused Darnell Chatman's 7 year old son from a previous relationship as being hers which presents a few glaring issues.

I've a sneaking suspicion this drastic retooling of a woman's life in the comments section of a news story that literally tells people otherwise about her stems from a certain aspect of her physical appearance.

Reading your response; I'd imagine that is exactly the case.

I hope her family sues the modeling agency for a fortune! They were too stupid to do a shoot on TRAIN TRACKS and too stupid to have look-outs to warn the young woman to get the heck off of the darn thing when the train was coming! The negligence is so over-the-top that it's practically murder! I'm amazed these folks even know how to BREATHE, let alone run a modeling agency!

Guys like this agency....along with incredibly out-of-touch ad agencies/producers/etc. cranking out stuff so stupid or bigoted....

....are these guys literally from another galaxy?! How can these folks be THIS STUPID and STILL FUNCTION IN SOCIETY? The severely Intellectually-Impaired have more common sense than these guys!

Either they're really stupid or they're passive-aggressively being bigoted.

Anyhoo. These idiots need to be bled dry!

....and the OP is a bigoted dumbass!

********

What floors me is that bigots are so bigoted that, when they see a person of a demographic they hate that goes against all the stereotypes, they don't simply go "Oh! That one's an exception!". No; They LITERALLY CONSTRUCT AN ENTIRELY NEW BIZARRO-VERSION OF SAID PERSON FROM THIN AIR!

It never crosses a bigot's mind that, if you have to make up stuff to prove your point or your worldview....then you have to rethink your worldview.

But rethinking one's worldview is "HAAAAAAAAAARRRD"!

So; They then turn respectable, attractive, hard-working folks of certain demographics into something out of a Minstrel Show, Rap Video, Kung-Fu flick, Mobster movie, etc....

A beautiful Black First Lady graces the world with her intelligence, poise, beauty and style and she gets turned into a combo of Harambe, Angelfood McSpade and Rasputia....

....despite looking and being NOTHING like them!....

....If this lovely woman resembles the above to you then there's something seriously wrong with you....like, REALLY!

It's like taking this guy....

....and saying "EEEEWW! IT LOOKS LIKE A HYBRID OF JACK ELAM AND SAM THE DOG!"

While the whole Aesop sour grapes character assassination crap in this guy's brain is offensive ...

Average annual number of railway collision related fatalities for the last 6 years: 245.

Average number of non-celebutards or aspiring models that get more than 2 min. of news coverage on the following day: 0.

This is a personal tragedy for the family. The News Jackals are constantly in search of another JonBenet Ramsey. Meanwhile, real news that might piss you off is not covered because it's "too controversial" and needs to be "looked at through the lens of History," or some such crap.

Please, more empathy for the poor victim.

As for the train, it is the agency which is responsible for using tracks for their shots without ensuring no trains would have passed the day of the photographies.

Not one of the factors you've mention merit the death penalty.

If anything deserves some kind of punishment, it's the douchebaggery of your post.

Asshole.

Darwin award.

We need more of these aspiring models!

I propose all model photoshoots are to be done on active railroad tracks, busy highways and airplane landing strips.

Was she deaf and didn't hear the train coming? Or was it one of those silent trains?

I thought it was stupid to be doing a photo shoot on an active rail line, but the idea that she deserved it because she was an unmarried pregnant girl (and black!) is typical of conservative nutjobs.

3/20/2017 6:13:49 AM



Is Dyz a psychopath too or was that just a tasteless joke?

The really sad thing is that with the decline of rail transport in America there are literally hundreds of miles of abandoned track they could of used instead. In my hometown they had so much trackage sitting unused they were able to make an extensive bike trail system out of it.
