A reply to: @yaco55 regarding QuoteLinkQuoted PostA reply to: @yaco55 regarding QuoteLinkQuoted PostIndonesian TV broadcasting images of a floating body to distraught relatives waiting for news of their loved ones was seriously insensitive and quite callous.
Don’t stress - This is common practice and acceptable in Indonesia.
Well it was clearly distressful for the relatives and so obviously unacceptable. Indonesia media need to lift their game.
It happens in a number of countries in S/E Asia - Because one or two relatives were distressed doesn’t mean its unacceptable in those societies.
He’s right. Things that we would find gruesome, horrible and a shocking affront to our sensibilities, they don’t care a fig for. They would rather endure all that, for the slightest chance that their loved one somehow survived against all the odds and expectations. Put it down to hope.
