Recently I was reading a newspaper article about a guy who committed suicide by cop. Some of the comments on the article were horrible. Talking about how the guy did not deserve to live and stupid people should die and all kinds of crazy stuff. I just felt bad for the guys family. They did not make the decision to end his life...he did. No matter how he died their grief is real. I am betting some of them even read the comments.
Back in 2008 my 17 y/o nephew was killed in a car crash. Now he was in the front passenger seat but turned around in his seatbelt facing the backseat. The driver swerved to miss another car and flipped the SUV. My nephew was thrown from the car. The comments on that article were horrible. Saying that the world was a better place without a couple of thugs...he should have been seated properly, and all kinds of other comments that no longer mattered. First...he was no thug...he was already signed up to join the Army after he graduated, second...kids think they are invinceble, and no his daddy didn't raise him right and teach him all the things he should have....but he did his best. He did not deserve to die and we did not deserve the grief.
Have you read articles and then looked at the comments and wondered what the hell people were thinking? Has the world gone heartless? Because I have seen this more and more as time goes on.
