Parkland mass shooting jurors shown graphic victims' photos
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors on Friday showed jurors photos of the horrific damage the bullets fired by Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz's AR-15 rifle did to some of his 17 victims, causing extensive wounds to their heads, bodies and limbs. The jury also saw gruesome crime scene photos showing victims who died in their classrooms at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, 2018, some falling on top of each other. It was an unusually graphic display in a U.S. courtroom as most of the nation's mass shootings never reach trial because the killer dies during or immediately after the attack.
As a franchise that's packed full of action, dangerous battles, and sacrifice, it is easy for audiences to focus on the serious themes and high stakes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, many of the most beloved characters are funny and provide moments of comedic relief in otherwise intense movies. © Provided by CBR
