Who Let This Man Die on the Subway?

If there’s enough time to capture a dying man’s last moments before getting hit by an oncoming train that’s that worthy of a tabloid cover, couldn’t the photographer have lent a hand?

“I didn’t think about [the perp] until after. In that moment, I just wanted to warn the train — to try and save a life.” The photographer claims he took a photo, using flash, in an effort to warn the driver, which has drawn criticism.

Before most people knew Obama was in Afghanistan, many rumors abounded about whether or not he actually was there. The White House’s national security team went on the offensive in an attempt to squash the stories, which started when an Afghan news source reported the president had landed in the country. (The president was actually in transit at the time, not in Afghanistan.) But that didn’t exactly calm nerves in the White House, which called up journalists asking them to take down tweets and stories in an effort to keep the president out of danger. Pretty crazy, right? On a side note, be sure to check out what the president signed yesterday.

What idiots, why would you want to tell people the President is an Afghanistan? View Larger
