What is the World coming to???

What is the World coming to???  i ask you seriously, are we turning into a race of savages??

"Head linked to finds"
'Two police forces are working together after a severed head discovered in Leicestershire was linked to body parts found in Hertfordshire.  It is not clear whether the head, found in Asfordby, belonged to a man or a woman.  Herts policea are continuing inquiries into the discoveries in Cottered and Wheathampstead, of a man's leg and arm.'

For goodness' sake!!  Body parts strewn around the countryside?  What is going on... and do we really have the stomach for the reply?

And what really worries me is that of all the murders reported it's just the tip of the iceberg! There are too many to report in the 'papers so they pick out one or two and go hang the rest! :( That case was obviously reported because it's so horrible...'ordinary' murders go by the board now, humdrum stuff. We are savages. :(

i think it's a product of overcrowding, seriously. Rats in traps go mad and so do we. There's too many of us

It's shocking and disgusting that murder of any kind seems to be on the increase. I blame the judicial system in this country. It's slack and due to over populating prisons, seems to give pathetic sentances for severe crimes. Criminals laugh at the fact that they now get 7 yrs for a crime that should be a life sentance.
I think that life should mean exactly that and in certain crimes, maybe even bring back the death penalty.

i'm with you there... Life sentences should be for life and i'm in favour of the death penalty.
It's high time the 'system' stopped being soft on crims and all this rehabilitation crap - yeah, some you can but some you just need to put down like mad dogs. i have no problem with that
