Am I the only one who finds the cheering crowds at the Sandusky post-trial event to be unnerving? The whole spectacle reminds me of this:
There’s nothing to celebrate here. Nothing. Go the fuck home, you degenerates. It just makes me realize we aren’t so far removed from public executions where people would hope the hanging would be botched and the convicted would either do the jig because there would not be a clean cervical break or hoping the condemned would do be accidentally decapitated to sate the crowd’s bloodlust. The death penalty and capital punishment is obscene on so many levels, but most of all because of the way it promotes this kind of sense of bloodlust and retribution.
It’s just really harder and harder for me to find any redeeming qualities in the human race these days. There is fucking nothing here to celebrate. Period. And anyone standing on the stairs there cheering should really spend some time evaluating their own existence, and whether or not they have gone tragically wrong in their own emotional development. Sick, sick, people. Who spends their nights on the stairs of the courthouse cheering a verdict that confirms dozens of kids were abused and the accused will be brought to justice? Why aren’t you at home reading, playing with your dogs or cats, children, or watching tv?
Such a sick, disgusting culture. The majority of our nation is mentally ill.
