We've Got It Bad When A Candy Peanut Butter Cup Is Worth More Than A Life

Killed his cellmate over Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
Something is wrong with us (so called human beings). I say this because we are becoming more and more of a violent society as time passes. Each day on any given news broadcast network, the stories are getting more and more bizarre. For each time you think you have seen and heard it all, something even more bizarre lets you know that you indeed have not. There seems to be no depth to the lack of regard for human life. The headline for the photo to the left was Man sentenced to life after killing cellmate over Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. As I was in my car listening to the radio, the story in the following link was shared: Cops: Purse-snatcher showed up at house, attacked man, rammed SUV through garage door. A synopsis of the crime is as follows:
Friday evening at about 5:37 p.m., a 58-year-old Franklin Township woman called 911 to report that her purse was snatched from her while she was exiting a supermarket at the Somerset Plaza in Franklin Township. The man who snatched the woman's purse, showed up at her home, attacked her son and ran her SUV through a closed garage door to seal it. At about 11:15 p.m., the victim's 32-year-old son, who was visiting, exited the home via the garage door to retrieve an item from his vehicle — and was confronted by someone matching the description of the purse-snatcher. The thief assaulted the son to the head and body with a blunt object, leaving him just able to retreat into the house via the garage door and close it. Seeing her son’s injuries, the mother screamed, and the thief started to leave the area on his bicycle, but he returned, kicked in a garage door panel and stole a 2011 burgundy RDX Acura.The thief backed the vehicle through the closed garage door then stopped to pick up the bicycle and put it in the back.
 I'm not sure barbarians were as bad. The following also occurred over the last couple of days
(Reuters) - A gunman killed six people and wounded seven others in a drive-by shooting in a Southern California college town, spraying bullets from his car until it crashed and he was found dead inside, authorities said on Saturday.
There are so many other stories that I could use as examples for this post, but I think you will get the point. What makes it all the worse is, they are all SENSELESS. No conscience in the perpetrators at all. It's like their conscience is seared. Something is wrong and seems like there is nothing that we are able to do about it except as Karen Clark-Sheard, says in her song, stay "Prayed Up."

I don't know about you, but for me, in these times, I intend to do just that...........Stay prayed up. You are invited to join me on Saturdays at 6 a.m. EDT on and follow me on Twitter @thinkcritical01. Stay prayed up y'all!
