Occasionally I get very depressed about the state of Humanity. I mean, I take public transit in a major city. If that doesn't remind you how shitty human beings can be I don't know what will.
I get that everyone has varying concepts of what is polite or socially acceptable. Everyone has a different work ethic or code of conduct that they live by and what their individual definition of respect is.
Is it the end of the world that one of my co-workers leaves early or comes in late whenever the boss isn't around? No. But it's sneaky and disrespectful of their boss and their co-workers who put in their full 9-5.
Is it a crime to not give an elderly lady or a pregnant woman your seat on the train? No, but I'm guessing your momma taught you better.
Every once in a while, you see something that lifts your opinion of humanity.
But every once in a while, you see something that makes you feel so disgusted in people that you don't quite know how to deal with it.
Now I don't typically talk about news and current events but I came across something yesterday that horrified me.
It's been on all the news stations here and was even featured on Buzzfeed, that a Canadian woman received a hate letter from one of her "neighbors" regarding her autistic Grandson.
Check out the article and read the letter at the end.
Are you horrified?
I don't even understand how someone could think those things let alone actually say that to another human being. And this woman is a mother? Are you kidding me? I honestly can't comprehend how someone could be that shitty of a person. And what is she teaching her children? That people that are different will never be loved and should be EUTHANIZED?!?!?!?! Seriously!?!?!? I can't even express how horrified I was when I read the full letter. I can't even imagine how the parents feel.
I honestly hope the police are able to track this chick down. They're looking into if it's actually illegal but in my opinion, it should set a new precedent for harassment. If karma exists, the contents of this letter would at minimum result in this woman's children being taken away from her because someone like that has no business raising children.
1. Would you legally consider a letter like this harassment?
2. What do you think should be done to this author? (Don't say drag her ass down the street and lynch the bitch...I know it's tempting but let's stick within the boundaries of the law.)
