Crazy Man Sets Cat on Fire. Tries to Kill Woman with a Knife at Bed, Bath & Beyond
This horrible attack happened last Thursday in New Jersey. Maybe if you live in Jersey, you saw this story. But it didn’t make the national news. I found it in a British newspaper.
The attacker, is obviously VERY DISTURBED and DANGEROUS and it begs the question, if he was charged with animal cruelty for setting a cat on fire just three weeks ago–why wasn’t someone–a family member, at least–keeping an eye on this guy?
But BIGGER QUESTIONS ARISE AROUND THE LACK OF MEDIA COVERAGE.
- If the attacker had used a gun instead of a knife would it have been all over the media?
- Does it draw too much attention to the way our culture deals (or rather doesn’t deal) with mentally unstable people–and would therefore delute the current firestorm around guns?
- Is it because the attack was a crazy Black man on a White woman with a baby?
Those are the questions that are rolling around in my mind. What do you think?
