I was thinking about this last night after watching a special on the Phil Hartman murder (comedian from SNL in the 90's) on this show called "Snapped". Even though this particular case didn't involve life insurance as a motivating factor, it still got me thinking (in a lot of other episodes, they cover cases that did involve life insurance as well).
People take out life insurance policies so that their family doesn't become financially ruined if God-forbid something happens to them.
The scary thing is, that often times 6-figure insurance policy is also seen as a get rich quick opportunity for psychopaths. Husbands/wives/children, anyone who severely lacks empathy who is willing to hurt others may be willing to kill their own family member or loved one just to get that life insurance money. It's so disgusting to think about, but look at the world we live in today. Vanity, incessant consumption, quantity over quality, especially in America it seems so many people are too caught up with things rather than relationships. It's disheartening really.
I just wanted to make a thread on how ironic it is that when someone makes the responsible choice to take out a life insurance policy, sometimes that's actually putting them in harm's way more than anything. Thoughts anyone?

I used to say to people who advocate for socialized health care that they were putting their lives in the hands of the social security administration who undeniably has in their best interests, your death.

My mum used to work in healthcare here in the UK and the more there are in care the more hours there are for people to be paid for so killing them off wouldn't help as even those up the line would be sacked as theres no work for them.
