Just out of curiosity . . .

Just out of curiosity . . . how many of you have seen a news report about this:

Megan Williams tortured and raped by six people for at least a week

It happened several weeks ago, and the first I heard about it was today, on Facebook (of all places). Is it really not getting media coverage? Or did I just miss it somehow. In any case, it's disgusting and heartbreaking and infuriating and . . . well, just read it, if you hadn't already heard, okay? I do not want to live in a world that allows things like this to happen. Of course, it's just one small example of the myriad horrible things people do to one another in this world. Yeah, I know there are wars going on right now, too. Somehow, it needs to change. I wish I had an answer as to how to do that, but right now, I just feel like crying. Also, I must admit to being a bit curious as to why the media thinks OJ Simpson and Michael Vicks are more newsworthy.

Nevermind, found it
Oooh right. There were some stories about this on the news I think sometime last week. I remembered as soon as I saw the pictures of the two people, the man and the woman. I'm sorry, but here's where I make the oft-said generalization about WV: just looking at them seems they're white trash inbreeding from WV. I remember seeing the report that morning with the reporter walking in front of the ramshackle mobile home on the side of some hill or mountain. I was surprised there weren't skinny, sickly dogs wandering out from under the mobile home, it was so stereotypical.

Considering all the crap these group of people have done, I'm not surprised, but still disgusted, at the the things they did to that poor woman. I question, though, what had her consorting with that trash in the first place if indeed she had had a relationship with the guy. I find that bit hard to believe, though, if it's true that the guy said what she claims of something like "that's what we do to niggers around here." You'd think he wouldn't "lower" himself to doing anything with a non-white much less having a relationship with her. *rme*

WV family
Now that I'm reading more about these crazies, it just makes it look more and more stereotypical. I'm on the fence on whether this should be a hate crime. I'm leaning towards it not being a hate crime because of their previous history. They've been in jail before and have killed and maimed before and it wasn't just targetting certain people. The guy killed his step-father - when he was 12! Clearly there's a history, and a family history at that, of mental imbalance, period.
