The news depresses me too, so I refuse to watch it anymore. Mr. LK thinks I am a bit of an ostritch, but I don’t care. I can either watch and feel sad and helpless, or I can ignore everything that is beyond my realm of influence in order to focus my time and energy on the things that I do have the power to effect for the better.

Before I was married, I’d read the local paper my mom would get delivered every morning during breakfast… All it said was who got shot or stabbed or who got raped… It’s so nice just sitting at the breakfast table with my husband in a better area NOT reading about such sad stuff.

A famous children’s TV presenter was outed as one of the most prolific paedophiliac sex abusers in history in the UK. That’s pretty miserable.

Politics always cheers me up though and a local pantomime star has lost his job after his adult film career was outed. 😀

I know what you mean. It’s f**king sad. That’s what I say to myself whenever I see that kind of news flash on the tv…”wtf is wrong with people?” When I heard about the nanny killing the two children, I teared up. Horrible.


ETA: I just heard about the cop stalking women and wanting to literally cook them in his oven?!?! Wow…

Ugh, I was really bothered by a story yesterday about a 14-year-old Florido girl who concealed her pregnancy, gave birth to a 9.5 lb baby boy, strangled it to death, then hid the body in a shoe box in her room 🙁

Until I did my clinical rotation at a psych hospital, I never would have believed that there were so many people who commit acts like this, at little fault of their own. They go into these hospitals actively homicidal and suicidal, and come out days later with little to no resources. It’s the same with jails, people are arrested actively psychotic, and are released because the police know so little about mental illness.

It sounds like a few of these people were/are seriously disturbed, and it makes me wonder how many warning signs they showed, and other people ignored. It doesn’t make the crime any less terrible, but I think many times crimes like these are symptoms of a larger problem in our society.

@Ms.Sugarsnap:  I know!!! And omg your ex bf?! Dang! LOL

@Follydust321:  Yeah, you’re right. I’m a nurse and I remember my psych clinical rotations in nursing school. Mental illness…it’s just a whole different world. It’s just really terrible to hear/read about innocent children being killed, like the toddler and his older sister being stabbed. (Hence why I went into Peds nursing…I love kids!) 🙁

Here is MI, put aside the fact that Detroit and Flint are dangerous, we have a shooter on the loose. He has shot at 20+ cars and today finally hit someone with the bullet. This is happening in nice parts of the state. Its sad and scarey. They cant find him and he keeps shooting at people while they are driving in their cars down a major freeway. Scarey.
