Pedestrian struck near Main & Hastings

I was walking home about 20 minutes ago and there were alot of sirens at Main & Hastings. I asked a guy what had happened and he said a pedestrian had been hit. So we walked up Hastings, to just east of the Empress Hotel -- I can take that route home -- and in the middle of the street there was a pedestrian lying there. There were lots of cops and firemen and an ambulance. There were witnesses standing with the cops too.

As we stood there on the sidewalk, a photographer jumped in between the police cars surrounding the body. As he snapped photo after photo of the paramedics working on the body, he seemed almost gleeful. Why do I think that was blueshoe?
