Is James Holmes responsible for more ‘human tragedy’ than Osama Bin Laden or George W. Bush?

EBay

A seller’s mask of Colorado ‘Dark Knight’ massacre suspect, James Holmes, was pulled off of eBay for being offensive, while the site continues to allow users to sell Halloween costumes of others responsible of murder.

The online auction website said it doesn’t let users make money from “human tragedy or suffering,” ABC News reported.

On July 20, 2012, James Holmes indiscriminately opened fire in the middle of an Aurora, Colorado movie theater killing 12 people and injuring 58. He currently awaits trial.

EBay’s position to put the feelings and emotions of people above making a cheap profit off of an offensive product is commendable, but what about the “human tragedy or suffering” of others like Libyans, Iraqis and Afghans?

EBay continues to allow users to sell masks and costumes of late dictators Muammar Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein. There’s even tons of Halloween attire resembling Al-Qaeda’s late infamous leader, Osama Bin Laden.

If we want to quantify “human tragedy or suffering” of our time, former U.S. President George W. Bush takes the cake. He is responsible for waging war in Iraq based on false information that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians and millions of displaced people. Dozens of Bush masks and costumes are currently bidding on eBay.

So, for this Halloween, don’t think about being a one-time killer. EBay thinks alleged mass murderers are more less offensive.
