Feeling ill

In recent weeks some stories have come out of Britain that have involved youth and me feel physically ill.

The first was a story about a mob of 2000 (estimated) drunks youths descending on a party and completely destroying the house. Tearing it to pieces while the owners and police stood by helpless.

The second was the story of the woman slipped date rape drugs and then gang raped in front her children. The offenders videoed the whole thing, her children can be heard in the background.

The third came through today. A 15year old is charged with kicking a 20 year old girl to death because "she dressed like a goth".

She begged them to stop, but was kicked and punched too and they were both left unconscious, with her injuries described as so bad it was difficult at first to tell what sex she was.
Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but these stories really effect me.

i got kind of disgusted over Greenpeace in Littleton last week. all the ChCh cops had to go out to the harbour first becuase they left port unscheduled and without a tug boat leading them.

Bit laster A fight broke out in the central city and only one policeman could respond. So he got the shit kicked out of him.

in Greenpeace's words "It's a lesser price for us than the significance of climate change and the lack of action that's happening."

I don't know if it's us being more affected or the world being more violent. :/
