Dangerous flood of information after crash

The unfiltered flood of information about the pilot of the crashed Germanwings aircraft Andreas Lubitz illustrates the careless attitude to the private sphere in the age of the Internet, the web portal Webcafé writes: "We live in times when we are all potential culprits. Information is so easily accessible that no one takes the time to deal with rational arguments that lack scandalous aspects. With a click we found the Facebook profile of Lubitz's brother, who with another click erased it. Then we found Lubitz's pilot licence and took a virtual tour outside his parents' home. The Internet has left us naked and thrown us to the wolves. And there's no turning back. ... This raises the question: How should we deal with unchecked information? Should we public the names of the victims and perpetrators of tragedies and attacks or not?"
