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.

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.
