Man Takes a Picture of His Killer

Posted by on Tue, Jan 4, 2011 at 11:54 AM

It's New Year's Day, and a man is taking a photo of his family. But a man in the photo is about to take a shot at him.

What we see in the picture is the last thing Reynaldo Dagsa, a Manila politician, saw in his life. After that—nothing.

That's so spooky, God. It makes me think of the early days of forensic science, when they thought they could look at a dead man's eyes, and somehow see the reflection of his killer...guess they were justing waiting for digital cameras.

What would Sontag have said?

Interestingly, the thought that sticks with me is how can you kill a man in front of his daughter?

I hope he had time to post it to Facebook before he died.

Wow. And the person on the right in the background seems to see it coming, too. Wonder what was going through his mind.

Charles,
Wow, that is pretty surreal and most unfortunate. I wonder if the Philippnes is a gun-crazy country? Seriously? I know the government is fighting an armed Islamicist movement. But, I do wonder if the country also has substantial gun violence. What would be the motive for this particular killing? Bloody sad.

That man is the assassin's spotter. I read that in the news article.
