Stories like this is one of the reasons my wife and I
stopped watching the news.
There is nothing the news media won't exploit.
The more insane the better. The more gory the better.
The only reason the media promotes these stories is for shock value.
They are not educational, they don't make us safer, they aren't even
interesting. They are little slices of the worst part of society gaily
shoved in our face by the media. The only beneficiary is the media
because for some reason people just seem to love this tripe.
It's verbal pornography and nothing more.
