We are hearing about so many shooting incidents at the protest sites. There is almost one shooting incident on a daily basis. But the ease with which the shooting takes place puts our minds in bit of doubt. And a live example was seen today in Delhi.
A shooter fired a round from his gun and waited for the cameraman to set his camera into portrait mode. He wanted his best photo to appear in news and also on social media. In fact, some gunmen are carrying their own social media team that pits captions on their pics and makes them go viral.
The police were talking to the fauxy reporters and told that the gunmen have made our task easier as earlier we used to call up media at the shooting site but now they already bring the media with them. In some cases, the gunmen are so humble that they Whatsapp us and tell us their exact location of the shoot.
Some mobile companies are even coming up with automatic portrait mode so that less time will be wasted in the photoshoot.
