Last week the channel 7news Adelaide showed graphic footage of a fight in Melbourne post the Ricmond /Hawthorn match. It showed a man being rtepeatedly punched in the face as his hand was held down as well as his head being stomped on.
The news could have stopped showing he violence after the "push and shove" and then explained about the assault. The assault did not have to be shown to identify the guilty. A still photo would have sufficed.
This is desensitising violence and unecessary.
