|Depressing... and a private rant|
January 29, 2007
Friday yet another man was gunned down at his home in front of his wife. His murder would not have made headlines or even fine print anywhere if he was not a renowned historian and a personal friend to Prince Charles.
Between April last year (2005) and March (2006) 18 793 people were murdered, 54 926 were raped and 119 726 were violently robbed. (only stats released up to date)
No, this is not a country at war, it is not even civil unrest but a haven for criminals as the government insists that there is no problem with the crime rate. After all we are only 8 percent higher than the international average.
We are a nation that has become so desensitised to crime that it is not shocking or worth a mention, no matter how evil or vile. We are just relieved that it was not us lying dead in the gutter or being gang raped. We wake up each morning thankful we are still alive and wonder for how long.
What kind of savage rapes a 3 month old baby, blows up ATMís regardless of who is in the vicinity, shoots their way out of Malls with AK47ís, hijacks pregnant women, shooting their unborn babies and driving off with small kids, just to toss them out the car down the road? Who murders for a cell phone or less?
When did some humans stop evolving and become the sick species who scurry about on this planet? Can they sink any lower than the scum in the sewer?
WHAT KIND OF SICK WORLD DO WE LIVE IN?
