LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A book, bound with images of crime scenes, funerals and memorials is circulating throughout the Metro.
Author and photographer Bud Dorsey is committed to preventing violence. He feels one way he can make a difference is by showing others the impact of violent crimes after police do their job.
"It's something I don't get enjoyment out of doing, but if I can send a message and let it be seen by others then I've done my job," Dorsey said.
Dorsey's self-published book is titled Thou Shalt Not Kill. He isn't motivated to make a profit. Instead, he wants the book reveal a snapshot into the pain families, friends and neighbors feel when a person is murdered.
For more than 30 years, he's been peering through his viewfinder and capturing photos of humanity at its worst. The retired photojournalist for The Louisville Defender devotes his spare time with 11 grandchildren. "My whole life is wrapped around my grandkids now," he said.
They're why he's organized the photo collection into a book. It's an emotional pictorial of Louisville homicides scenes, funerals and memorials.
Dorsey never had plans to show anyone else the book, until now. Once it's cracked open, there's a daunting image: a 9-millimeter handgun pointed at the reader.
"That's probably the last thing they see," he said.
Photos include recent shootings, like the gunfire that killed three people near 32nd and Greenwood, memorials for those who've passed and mothers, like Donna Goldsmith whose daughter and two grandchildren were gunned down in Pleasure Ridge Park.
"If they see the pain and the hurt it might change a few minds," Dorsey said.
