    The title is a quote from a photographer who took what looks to be a well known photo during the Mumbai attacks.. I wonder If I were in his place would I do the same he did..

    Cliff notes: Mumbai photographer wished he had a gun and not a camera. He claims that armed police would not fire back. He was able to get a few frames with a tele lens of this guy shooting at anything that moved..

    Why? That's all I keep wanting to ask. What do these people want? Why are they doing this? Does anyone know?

    This is a good way to put it on why some people are evil. There are just wolfs among us.

    That photo essay is very powerful...

    I really appreciate the courage of the photographers that capture these grim moments in history. They risk their life so that we can see what happens.
