A JACKASS RAN ON TO THE field during a Phillies game recently and police tasered the dude.
To discourage other jackasses running onto the field, the media generally ignore the clown when this happens. TV won't show the person. Still photographers don't submit images for publication. Writers don't report the incidents - which are actually crimes.
But the tasered dude is in the news, with his picture and all - apparently, he is one of the first trespassing fans to be subdued by a taser.
NBC10 used video from YouTube (they blurred the jackasses' face in the video but ran a full image online). Fox29 did too. Philly.com ran a slideshow. PhillyBurbs.com published images and video.
What would you do? Would you run images, video and/ or a story about the jackass?
By the way, another dumbass ran on to the field the very next night.
