Stabbing selfie: next big thing? Hopefully not

Unbelievable: in the aftermath of the shocking Pennsylvania high school mass stabbing on Wednesday morning, a victim posted a selfie of his injury.

Given the propensity to take a selfie under seemingly any circumstances, maybe it isn’t so surprising.

Does this take the selfie trend too far? Or is it on par with taking a selfie at say, a funeral? What do you think?
