On Wednesday it emerged that during the attack, and while paramedics and police officers tried to save Gazzard's life, bystanders were filming on their mobile phones. Gloucestershire police appealed for anyone with footage of the incident to hand it in to officers and not share it online.I
Chief Inspector Neil Smith said officers were monitoring social media websites for any sign of the footage. "I am told there were members of the public who were videoing on their phones during the incident, especially when the officers were trying to save this lady's life,"
Smith said. "I would like to put in the press very strongly that individuals who took part in any filming do not put this on social media and do not put it on the internet. "I am sure anyone related to the lady who has died would not like to see this footage uploaded to social media websites. It would not be a respectful thing to do, especially when the family are in mourning."You really expect the ghouls to understand the concept of respect?
"I would like to reassure members of this community, both residents and local businesses, that this is an isolated incident. These offences don't happen in Gloucester regularly," he said.
"This incident was very tragic, however; both victim and suspect knew each other. They were in a previous relationship. That doesn't lessen this horrific incident but it would be good for us to reassure the local community."The same local community who you have to warn against sharing these images? How does that work, then?
