Social networking sites are hubs for people from all over the world, from all races and of both sexes. The sites are used to keep in touch with friends, family and to find new friends. The popular social networking sites have had their problems though.
One of the most popular of the social networking site is Facebook. Facebook has been at the center of more than one controversy, the most recent being the removal of images of mothers breast feeding from the site.
Breastfeeding mothers may or may not be disturbing to most users of the site, but one thing that is universally disturbing for Facebook is when the site is flash point for a serious crime. A man named Edward Richardson from Staffordshire England was enraged by something his estranged wife posted on Facebook.
The man found that his wife had changed her status from married to single on the site and became enraged. After trying to contact his estranged wife via text messages and getting no response, Richardson traveled to the home of his wife's parents, where she had been staying.
He then broke a window out of the front door, entered the home and killed the woman in what is being called a "frenzied and brutal attack". After killing his wife, the man attempted to take his own life but failed to do so.
Richardson was sentenced to 18 years in prison recently for the brutal murder. Detective Inspector Andy Wall said, "She had decided that her marriage to Edward Richardson was over but this was clearly something he could not accept. The consequence was that Sarah lost her life in a brutal attack at her husband's hands in her family home. The verdict cannot bring Sarah back but we hope that it gives her family some form of comfort."

quote: Why no torture?
quote: The guy deserves to feel pain, how much pain do yout hink he has caused for everyone of his wifes family members? Putting a simple bullet in his head wont show him the true pain caused by his actions.
quote: your crazy ass.
quote: The bottom line is you want to torture people without consequences, but you can't unless you have a decent reason. You are just as sick, you just realize the consequences are too high, so you try to find a loophole.
quote: I also realize I am too cynical and too cold hearted sometimes for my own good because of a few life experiences.
quote: But you people that are humane, I guess you still justify swabbing an inmates arm with alcohol before the lethal injection goes into thier arms? Now tell me that isn't a huge waste.
quote: I enjoy chaos in general, whether I am apart of it or not. Let me enjoy it while you all fret over it.
quote: No, you are just a jackass.
quote: What you don't understand is if you are killing someone, it "teaches" them absolutely nothing to torture them first. It is merely a way for you to get arousal and excitement.
quote: No, you merely enjoy the pain of others.
quote: Any man that even lays a finger on a woman, child or animal (Micheal Vick anyone?) needs to be tortured and then shot.
quote: It is one thing to kill rat because it is bothering your family but a whole other to kill it to get your jollies off.
quote: As much as I like dogs, they're still just animals. Somehow, I suspect by "animals", you mean "only the fuzzy, cute animals". Should someone be a convicted felon for killing a rat in his house? Or a host of cockroaches (yes, they're animals also).
quote: And we’re different? Homo sapiens are also just animals. I don’t see why you should stop the differentiation right there.
quote: How do you condemn a guy for murder, then get enjoyment from thinking about sick things you would do to a guy?
quote: The one thing I’ll never understand is why no country in the world treats pedophiles like the true pieces of crap that they are. I don’t know one person who doesn’t regard these people as worse than murderers, yet no country seems to lock them up for any significant amount of time.
quote: Read up on post-traumatic stress disorder. And before you call the affected weak, remember that it's equally likely to occur to a rape victim, a GI, a Ranger/Seal, or anybody else exposed to truly brutal circumstances.
quote: Knowing the general sentiment of many posters here, I should probably just have kept all the real knowledge and education on the sideline rather than try to expose the unwilling to the facts, but oh well. Flame on, undereducated college-age male hardasses!
quote: There's no excuse for any crime
quote: can even begin to compare to the rape, and violation, of a woman or child.
quote: Well, I would personally be much more upset about being anal raped as opposed to someone stealing my identity or kicking my ass. That's just me though and obviously you feel otherwise. I am very much in the camp that rapists and child molesters should be eligible for the death penalty.
quote: Bottom line is it's not like you're just going to be walking to work, get raped, pick up your pants and get there 5 minutes late and be like, "Yeah, sorry I'm late. Got raped on the way. Ummm, donuts!" It's ridiculous to debate that point.
quote: Once again, too much emphasis is put on emotion. For the most part a worthless thing causing poor decisions and screwing up many a life. It has it's occasional benefits, but they seem to be few and far between by comparison.
quote: I propose an experiment. Let's have a well hung gentleman penetrate gzus666 in the mouth and anus and see if he still feels the same way. I highly doubt it.
quote: I see rape as less annoying to get my life back together from. Maybe because I'm not a homophobe retard like you. You crap out your anus frequently, it isn't like nothing ever moves through that hole.
quote: As for what you said and how it relates to racists and dictators, my point was that all of those are points of view that I can not condone as merely a “difference of subjective opinion.”

quote: No, it was an attempt to discount the person you are speaking to by comparing them to something that is pretty much universally despised.
quote: Personally the way i read it he was not trying to discount you by comparing to things that are EQUALLY despised. you think that murder or rape is hated less than anything that suntan stated?
quote: Look dude, you are totally missing the point. It isn’t about comparisons
quote: First off, say a rape would be “less *annoying*?” Sorry, but that shows a rather large disconnect for the severity of the trauma. If you’re just playing it down to come of as a tough guy, that’s one thing, but if you really feel that way, I would hazard to guess you have a screw loose.
quote: I won’t say much about the homo comment. Although to think that homosexuality has any impact on a person’s aversion to being raped is, again, a disturbing disconnect between yourself and the rest of society.
quote: Lastly, the idea that “poop comes out” so being sodomized must not be too big of a deal is just plan weird and disturbing. Even when being discussed in a setting like a web forum overrun by adolescents.
quote: Right, cause if he was raped by a woman I'm sure he would be traumatized for life. Most men welcome this. Look at the kid that was nailing his teacher, had that been a male teacher and female student they would want the teacher hung. But since it is the other way around, most people said "lucky kid". Now if it was a male teacher and male student, they would be even more grossed out, mainly cause of a natural aversion to homosexuals. Does it make sense? Not to me.
quote: Maybe because I'm not a homophobe retard like you. You crap out your anus frequently, it isn't like nothing ever moves through that hole.
quote: With any luck, you'll look back at this post in utter disgust. Stick to defending your opinions; attacking others makes you look petty.
quote: Suicide isn't an option; so, that's it really.
quote: Death is ceasing to exist, nothing is worse than ceasing to exist
quote: 18 years? Seriously? This country really needs to pull it's head out of it's @ss
quote: The real trouble is that we have a liberal/socialist media (especially the BBC) who are blatantly Nu Labour biased who waste no time attacking the conservative party and try hard to support Labour when they can.
quote: The BBC are still telling us that we are in a "down turn" rarely using the word recession as that is a negative word that people do not like so they are spinning away for Labour. Only "Tory" governments have recessions apparently.
quote: Why don't you complain then because the BBC must legally retain impartiality.
quote: Could that have been because a recession requires two consecutive quarters of GDP contraction?
quote: Oh and what do you make of the daily mail? good and impartial? lol
quote: Real life is never as simple as "just control your emotions" or "just suck it up and keep going." If it were, there wouldn't be many problems around.
quote: Actually, real life is exactly that simple. Either you deal with your problems and emotions in a rational matter, or you don't, and your emotions and problems subsequently consume you.
