Nobody Thought It Was Necessary to Clean Up the Blood From the Guy Who Was Killed by Police in Times Square

The scene before the shooting.

Our first thought when we read that tourists on Sunday were taking photos of the blood stain left over from the police shooting of a knife-wielding man in Times Square the day before was, “Ugh, tourists, you sick freaks.” But you know what? It’s really weird that nobody cleaned up the blood stain. And a conspicuous uncleaned blood stain from a fatal crime scene in the heart of New York is way more remarkable and memorable than 99 percent of vacation photos.
