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.

Yeah, I saw something about it in the NYT and I think maybe someone on my flist posted about it recently, I may have even heard a tiny item about it on NPR, but that could be me hallucinating again.

It's just sick and horrifying and makes me totally want to come up with whole new penal code systems just to make sure these people are removed from society and made useful rather than destructive. Though I guess if I can figure out how to do that and not create a whole lot of new problems, there's a Nobel prize with my name on it.
