I’m sure they were taken in full blown color, 14 megapixel, etc. but if you desaurate to release and turn them black and white, you de’gore it a bit.
I personally could care less if they’re ever released. it’d just give his followers something to emblazon on posters and banners. it’d be like that photo of the dying girl that was posterized and used as a rallying photo for which ever country was rioting at the time (I can’t recall the country, but last year or so, the young woman that was walking by a riot and accidentally shot by police..Mya was her name maybe? anyway, the photoshopped image of her bloody face became a symbol of the riot)
