I agree 100%! Give me the details, we're all adults, we can handle it. People just look for things to offend them.
We should have seen more pictures from the World Trade Center attack.
I heard there was battle footage every night on the world news during the Vietnam War ... How come we don't see battle footage from the Middle East?

That is too gory to report!
The person who complained about it repeated it here in case the original story was edited!

Haven't you seen enough Iraq amputees crawling around in their living rooms with their parents looking on? I have links to quadruple amputees too if that is not enough for you.

That's not battle footage, you entirely missed the point.
