Dom Post gone too far?

By Gary R, in , posted: 13-Jul-2006 10:56

I am always up for a laugh and there are times where I probably laugh at things that I shouldn't.

The recent find of a severed human foot on Himitangi Beach and the mutilated corpse of Tony Stanlake found in Owhiro Bay were the subject of a Garrick Tremain cartoon in yesterdays edition of the Dom Post.

I am afraid that even with my broad sense of humour I did not find this cartoon funny. In fact I found it to be quite distasteful. I feel sorry that the family of Mr Stanlake had to be subjected to this.

What do you think?

Oh oh... well, it's not in good taste, but I find it funny. I'm not a scion of good taste though :) Wasn't Stanlake involved in gang crime though?

Fair enough Juha. This one just went a bit too far for me. Stanlake apparently grew Canabis. It is amazing how growing a bit of pot can get stretched to gang crime.

Very bad taste, but of course it is not any kind of hate etc... so.... Garrick Tremain, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.".
