What in the hell is going on in the world?

So checking out CNN today, I just want to scream "What in the fuck is wrong with the world?" Now I know that for the most part, the news focus on the bad rather then the good, but still, what the hell is up with today?

Here are a sample of the headlines that I have seen on cnn.com today:
"Girl set mom's bed on fire, police say"
"Cops: Dad offered boy, 5, on Craigslist" (VIDEO)
"Mom charged with baby's microwave death"
"Ex-guards charged in teen's boot camp death"


I mean really, what in the hell is this world coming to? All of these headlines make me sick to my stomach, but what I think really takes the cake is the headline of the mom microwaving her baby to death. I had to do a double take when I saw that one, I thought I had read it wrong, hell I hopped that I had read it wrong, but nope, I read it right. CNN has a video of there report of the story, and I still can not bring my self to watch it. Hell I could almost not read the freaking news story it self.

And what is up with the father putting his 5 year old boy up on Cragislist? He says it's a joke, but to me that is not something to joke about. I must say that I am happy that right now he does not have custody of that child, and after something like that, he never should.

It just seems like everyday there is something new that just shocks me more then I thought I could be shocked. I really am starting to think there needs to be some IQ test before people are allowed to have kids or something cus damn.

What in the hell is going on in the world? (Part II)

So earlier today I posted a entry titled "What in the hell is going on in the world?", well I have found another news story on CNN that really makes me sick and really makes me question the world we live in.

The headline was: "Tearful judge: 'You threw away your child' ". As I started to read this story I just wanted to cry. This women "hit her 7-year-old adopted son on the head with a hammer and didn't seek help while the boy slowly died". I must say you have to be one cold-hearted bitch to be able to do something like that.

I guess my first question is why was this women allowed to adopt kids in the first place? My second question is, why was no one doing fallow up to make sure the adoption & everything else was going ok? Also, I have worked in schools before, you know when something is not right with a kid. Where was his fucking teachers during all of this? This women "abused the boy for years, restraining him with ropes in the basement." Someone at his school should have noticed something was wrong and should have reported it to the authorities. Hell, they are required to by law, its called being a "mandatory reporter", I know as I am a "mandatory reporter" due to my work with youth in the church.

Stories like this really piss me off. If people had done their jobs, more then likely this kid would still be alive. But, people got lazy or something, and now this poor kid is dead. I take some comfort in know that this bitch and her husband are going to be locked up for a good long time and should never have kids again.

Also as an aside, if you ever suspect that a child is being abused, please report it to the proper authorities. Most states have written legislation that give the reporter immunity against charges and/or prosecution.
