Should We Have Published Photo?

Spokane police Officer Greg Thieschafer checks the body of a male who was shot by police after a chase, near the corner of Indiana Avenue and Madison Street last Friday. The shooting closed a four-block area around the intersection of Northwest Boulevard and Monroe Street. Latest on gunman & shootout from Meghann Cuniff/S&G here. (SR photo: Dan Pelle)

DFO: NIC Sentinel instructor Nils Rosdahl & I discussed this photo this AM. He plans to discuss it in class with his journalism students. He doesn't think the SR should have run a photo with a body in it. "What if it was one of your relatives," he asked me. I, on the other hand, see it as the exception to the rule -- a photo taken of the instigator of a very public event.

Question: What do you think? Publish? Or no publish?
