Are there any good reasons why Snuff videos should not be banned?


I believe that watching a video purely for the enjoyment of seeing someone murdered and dismembered is sick. Do they go beyond freedom of information rights? What would the argument be for not banning them outright?

    actually, if noone is really being killed, that'd be fraud, and if someone actually is being killed, that'd be profitting from the commission of a crime and aiding and abetting a felony. Either way, crimes, so banning the films seems appropriate

    A snuff film is the recording of an actual murder, or else it wouldn't be an actual snuff film. The person being killed is what makes the film different from other murder movies, not the content or message of the film.
