The New York Daily News is hardly known for its subtle newspaper covers, but Thursday's edition had many reeling.

The cover displayed a large photo of Alton Sterling's body with the sprawling words, "His hands were empty." Sterling, a 37-year-old black man and father of four, was fatally shot by white police officers in Baton Rouge Tuesday. Protests and public outcry about police brutality have escalated as videos of his death have widely circulated.

But the graphic nature of the Daily News' Thursday cover has sparked a new debate — too much or not enough?
