All the people who watch and laugh at the vids on the net, contribute to this. When i think that people will say this is bad and then laugh at the vids on the net, which is it.
Just goes to show whats happening today. Gattuso said it best(hes an acmilan football player), when he said kids have no respect today at all, they just need the thrill all the time.

how somebody could be this evil and psychotic is beyond me, is this a sign that our world is truly becoming more evil every passing second, is this not a huge assurance of complete disregard for human life and declining morals encompassing humankind

The sad part about this whole ordeal is that it is just a small example of the perversions and sickness that is so prevalent in the world today.
It boggles the mind to think that the worst thing you can possibly do to another creature or human being has already been done...or much worse.
Primal, brutal actions still lie deep within the human psyche, and only the civilized seem to be able to control them...and this young mas was definately not one of the civilized.
He will get is due justice in the end, either here or in another life.

You know there are things that once you've seen them you can't 'un-see' them and they burn themselves on the back of your eyelids. In this case this was something I really did not want to know about the human condition for it disgusts me to know I am part of such a sad race of beings.
