Weird case of the found man

Post by Dirk @ Mon Jan 30, 2017 5:32 pm

He can't be a missing man because they had him, they just didn't know who he was. So I guess he's a found man

Sad and also very telling about US society. Always amazes me how many people think the US is some sort of utopia where everyone is rich and verything is bigger and better than the UK

The absolute worst part is this:

BBC News wrote:...and he was dressed in brand new clothes from Tesco.


Sickening.

Thinking about it, yeah. They obviously changed him out of his old american clothes in case they provided clues to his origin.

This is the saddest part, he'd have been better off if the BBC had just left it alone - but they weren't to know and he may well have had family that were looking for him.

If the main news weren't bad enough, in the last 24 hours i have read about
- this case,
- a thug (very nasty bully by all accounts) in devon who stole the money a family was saving to pay for their child who had died, smashing the father over the head and nearly killing him in the meantime.
- and a man in Bristol who shot his son with an air gun to stop him crying

As I read the story this morning I don't think he was the father but rather a neighbour. His girlfriend had the idea to shoot the toddler in the head with an air rifle and he went ahead and did it. Apparently the child "has not made a full recovery". Absolutely tragic.

To add to that pile there was a story yesterday from the US about a baby rape by a mother's boyfriend which led to the baby's death.

Humanity is overdue for a cull.

It's probably going to get one soon the way things are shaping up.
