I don't think this is a time and/or thread to debate politics. Something's wrong with society here, stick with that.

you forgot to add "the Jews" on your checklist.

Wow. I haven't been here in a while, and I have to say that this is one of the most horrible things I've read in a while.

How can that kid who watched feel absolutely no responsibility for this?


Oh and Financeguy, are you a robot or what? You seem to have no feelings at all.

I am absolutely stunned by this story. This is sick and disgusting beyond belief. My thoughts and prayers are with the young girl.
I hope these bastards rot.

I've read about this and it makes my stomach turn. My heart goes out to the girl.

i think that now things get reported in a way they weren't years ago.

take whatever small solace from that idea that you can, i suppose. it's the only hope i can muster from such abject awfulness.
I don't know about that- I can agree to some extent but on the other hand the dehumanization just seems to exist on a whole new level, that it can exist in this extreme. It's as if they think they're watching that happen to a character in a video game or something. It's chilling.

That's what I was wondering about. Even though I am reluctant to point the finger at the media, did it play a role in this case?

The answer to the question, "Am I my brother's keeper?" is meant to be a resounding YES.

I think there must be numerous factors if you could actually analyze what caused them to behave like that. I don't mean to blame media or video games-but I do think they play a part in being desensitized towards violence. It can't be just about the snitching-surely someone would still have the humanity and courage to stop it.
