No, you are lumping your arguments together. In other words bicycle safety, a one off protest incident and making everything larger. That is not a snuff vieo.

I also tried to point out how this particular piece of snuff is highly charged to me and others. I have already explained that I didn't want to say both incidents are qualitatively equal, and next time will try to chose my words more carefully.
Again a one off incident is not the same as individual incidents.
Yes, I am glad you can use my remarks and still not follow my advice. You are "highly charged" or aggravated not me. Again, very carefully with more explanation.
If that leaves you aggravated that ain't my problem, but what the hell, as you said I don't have to like everything you post and vice versa.
You have taken three separate issues and lumped them all together. Then you attacked Snake and myself for not agreeing with your convoluted point.
Here are three of your main points:
1) Cyclist safety
2) Snuff Videos (sarcasm)
3) Critical Mass.
The use of "you" is impersonal and not directed specifically at a particular poster.
You can hate Critical Mass and still be concerned with cyclist safety.
You can laugh at the video and still be concerned with cyclist Safety.
You can love Critical Mass and still be concerned with cyclist safety.
You can hate the video, love Critical Mass, and be concerned with cyclist safety.
Now, when I say "lumping together" it is in response to this comment:
You lumped the three points above together in your response to Snake Plissken. Snake is essentially saying the Critical Mass incident in Brazil, not the individual deaths that you posted, is an aberration.
They don't get run down on a regular basis.
It was, essentially, an isolated incident.
Does this make sense?
Yes, it would be funny. It would be ironically funny because, they would be feeling the same loss, as the military parents and family, and be equally as impotent to do anything about their family member being gone.
As for the funeral biz:
We have those nutcases here in the UK as well. I do know what you mean. Distasteful and disgraceful no doubt, and they are WEIRDOS, I agree with you on that for sure.
But I stand by my point that a video of killing them would still not be funny. It'd be snuff, and snuff ain't funny.
You don't have to agree and that's your prerogative. I also watch 1000 ways to die, even though some of those are fake, and laugh as well.
Nowhere did I say this incident was warranted or that I laughed at this video.
