Humans Behaving Badly

Over the edge. So many people are falling over the edge these days. Violent perpetrators who take innocent victims with them. Seems like every single day we hear about another disturbing incident. Sadly there are thousands more crimes that go unreported and/or unsolved. Here's just a sampling of recent horrific crimes in the United States where humans have demonstrated atrociously bad behavior. Will we all eventually go mad?

Vail, Colorado: A 63 year man is accused of opening fire in a popular area bar, shooting 3 people and killing one of them.

Orlando, Florida: Unemployed man shoots at least six people in high rise office building, killing one person.

Ft. Hood, Texas: An Army Major and psychiatrist opened fire and killed 13 people and injured at least 38 others.

Deerfield Beach, Florida: Five long time friends and school mates set their 15 year old buddy on fire. The teen survived but just barely and is still in very serious condition.

Cleveland, Ohio: Authorities discover at least eleven bodies at the home of a convicted rapist. Police say the former Marine lured women to his house, strangled them and hid their bodies around his house.

Phoenix, Arizona:  An Iraqi immigrant father drove over and killed his 20 year old daughter with his car because he thought she was becoming too Westernized.

Richmond, California: A 15 year old girl was raped, robbed and beaten by multiple attackers outside her highschool homecoming dance, while dozens of other teens watched, laughed and snapped photos.

Antioch, California: By now, we've all read about the capture of the convicted sex offender who kidnapped a young girl 18 years ago, kept her as a sex slave in a tent behind his house and fathered two children with her. Sphere: Related Content

Life sucks ... more and more these days. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I replied to you on their but not sure if you know that! Hence my reply is below:

Thanks for the comment. I have tried the D90 and the D5000 and they both feel intuitive and are very easy to use. The viewfinder on the D90 is much better and slightly bigger but the D5000 is still perfectly useable. The reason I'm buying the canon too is because it has a 0cm focus limit and therefore becomes much cheaper than buying a macro lens for a DSLR! Have you tried any DSLRs?

we just had a gang rape in richmond of a 15 year old girl, while a group of people watched. the only hope is once the perpetrators go to jail, they will get the same treatment from the inmates.

it's a damn shame, and most people especially the younger ones do no even see the shock factor in these event, as though they are numbed or immune.

some of those deaths might be avoided if not every nutter had the right to carry guns.

you have chosen the horror stories to highlight the ills of our society, let's hear it for the good deeds. Can't find any?

It was Being Miss who sent me here, now there's light relief and fun for us.

This is why I refuse to listen to the news. I have no idea what's going on and I like it that way. Don't get me wrong. If a bad guy shows up on my watch he will regret it. Just ask my kids!

It is so sad to see so many people going over the edge. It is worse when they take others with them.

What is wrong with people?! That is just not right!

Please do me a favor. Would you go to my blog and “follow” me again? Because I changed my URL, I have lost many of my readers. I know you can still hunt me down, but this will make it ever so much easier on you. I will once again show up on your Reader and Blog Roll. I knew this would happen but needed to change to be more representative of who I am now. I think this is the best fix. Thanks for your time. If you have another solution, let me know! Thanky!!!!!
