  • Lovin violence?

    From metalhead@VERT/CYBERIA to All on Sun Dec 6 22:14:00 2015
    I live in Albuquerque, NM. People here love violence. 9 out of 10 people here love UFC fights, and people are always talking about it. They love Holly Holmes, a female UFC fighter who is from here. The mayor and the governor
    both love her, and speak highly of her.

    I fucking hate violence. I have sincere feelings for victims of violence.
    This is a violent city. Homeless people get murdered and robbed (Who wants to rob a homeless person?) A 4 year old girl was executed in a recent road rage incident here. A 5 year old child was murdered by his own mother a few years ago, and burried in a sand box at a park. A 6 month old infant was shot in
    the head by his father because the mom cheated on the man.

    Am I happy to talk about it? Hell no. I'm writing about this to see what
    other people think about this crap.

    Do you think people who are into UFC, and other forms of commercial violence are more prone to committing heinous acts of violence? I think so. I've lived in NYC, Baltimore, and a few other US cities, and have never seen such a possible correlation between a love for commercial violence (UFC/Boxing/Etc) and true street violence, as I've seen here in Albuquerque.

    And after this 4 year old girl was executed, do you think people should be affected? They aren't. I feel like people do not give a crap that the 4 year old was murdered, and they just continue their lives in this crappy community like nothing happened. They have a fucking appetite for violence, and they can't wait to see more kids succomb to despicable adults and their bloodlust.

    Your thoguhts? Please lead me to believe that other people are sad about
    this, and that this is unacceptable?

    UFC is a non starter for me. There are people here too that seem to like this stuff and talk about it a lot. I turn away.

    It doesn't happen often here but people get killed here too. Last night there was a shooting at a home in the upper class part of town. I don't know the story yet I just heard about it. One dead and one in the hospital. Happened
    at a "Party".

    Dunno sometimes what folks are thinking.

    Ttyl :-),

    That sounds like my kind of town! The city I grew up in was like that.
    Someone would get murdered, and then the whole like is like "What!? A
    Murder!?"

    That's the way it should be. God bless Canada!
