Wow, surprising amount of asshole comments to such a horrible news.

What kind of person does it make you when you react like that?

I'd read it again, if I were you.  There was one asshole comment, and then a bunch of people calling the guy who made the comment an asshole.

And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown... the mysterious. The unexplainable. That is why you are here.

My friend, we cannot keep this a secret any longer. Let us punish the guilty. Let us reward the innocent. My friend, can your heart stand the shocking facts of grave robbers from outer space?"

Two black kids douse a white kid with gasoline and set him on fire for being white.

Horrible things happen every day. And people are becoming confused about how to respond to it.

Yes, mostly people calling out, but this pissed me off too "This may be bad, but I wasn't shocked by this at all.", reminded me of a thread that analyzed the recurrent types of comments/responses within a given possible thread, like "oh, we should not just send him to prison for entire life, we should cut his balls off, or no we should set him on fire and catapult him to, etc" and the other kinds of comments that "oh, thats is nothing to be shocked about, seen it a million times" type of hipster sociopath comment

Maybe im overreacting in conjunction with the other post...

I think that you're conflating lack of surprise with lack of disgust. The fact that someone says the million times before thing indicates a sort of weariness that people can be so horrible. It's not them that are the sociopaths, but the people they read about are.

My original intention in linking this article wasn't to "Isn't this awful", but more "People don't know eachother anymore and only look at the surface"
Even their neighbors were fucking clueless that this kind of shit was going on.

Definitely. You see someone as a church goer, so they obviously can't be a monster. Those are the worst kind of monsters, because you never see it coming.

I know that. That was for JN.

&ETA: Yeah. Church-going doesn't tell you a damn thing about a person.

Or maybe you're not getting what this subforum is about.  It's about horror, not fear or loathing.

But don't let that get in the way of your righteous indignation at what rotten people we all are.

My responses werent an attack on the OP or the general responses, it was towards Kaasov and to A.N. (which the latter i can go with Twid's interpretation that is more jaded than anything). So i do apologize for not conveying my message clearly.

Back on topic regarding how him being a "church-goer" and doing this kind of abuse as something incompatible and causing "cognitive dissonance" so to speak, shows how some people still believe that having a certain ideology or posturing as a "moral person" is confused with being an actual one.

Like if there couldnt possibly be a difference between ideas and actions or certain actions like going to church excluded the possibility of atrocious actions.

I think more than anything it shows the ex-girlfriends very limited frame of reference or interpretation which any actual acknowledgement or knowledge of history of how religious people can and do act could easily put into question.

That would be preferred, certainly. :S But I have the overwhelming suspicion that some people are too stupid to know better.
