We have all lost our minds

By Nick D’Andrea

Several weeks ago I wrote a post how we as a society needed to correct ourselves in light of what happened during the presidential election.  In light of recent news regarding four people attacking another over what could be argued as political vitriol, is appalling.


I am going to be very blunt in this statement, if anyone agrees or commends the four people who are now arrested, then something is seriously wrong with you.


This has gotten out of control and we have nobody to blame but ourselves.  We have become cowards and cry babies, over what?  People who don’t care about us no matter what they tell you.


Politics used to be a good friendly discussion.  People discussing different ideologies in a friendly manner over a beer, dinner or what have you.  Now it has become physical and in this case almost deadly.


Who’s to blame for this hateful rhetoric that is sweeping the nation? Some people say it’s social media.  Some people will say its the millenials,  who have been used to doing whatever they want with no regard and no punishment.  Political parties will tell you the opposite side is the reason for your so-called rotten life.  In the meantime they are doing nothing for you either.


The Baseball widow blames the Hollywood writer’s from several years back “It turned us into reality TV junkies, it allowed us to watch as people’s lives imploded live and in technicolor……Putting our lives on TV made it ok for people to stream their crimes live on Facebook, or more recently the young girl that recorded her own suicide! That should never happen” she said


It’s a stretch, but she has a point.


Me?  I still think it is Florida’s fault.  Ok, it’s not really Florida’s fault.


C’Mon people, we are all better than this and we need to STOP.  Everyone needs to come out against these four individuals and others that come after that.  What happened the other day will not be fixed by elected officials, but “By the People”.  It’s time we start acting civilized, because right now we have all lost minds if we continue to condone this behavior

    I did not see your earlier post but if we are talking about the four, inhumane individuals that texted and videoed the poor developmentally delayed young man while he was being tortured then I agree. Elected officials are not to blame for this but to a degree society and I am starting with the family as a microcosm of society has gone amuck. I cannot believe any of these four (I honestly don’t know what to call them) had any up bringing at all. It is a classic example of 4 out of control bullies on a mission to do nothing but hurt someone, anyone as long as that person could be intimidated to the point of not fighting back. I cannot even think of a punishment that would be severe enough for them. Let’s see how tough they are when they get thrown in jail for a long time. This breaks my heart and soul.
