Re: Father traps daughter in cellar for 24 years and has 7 children

There are certain stories I don't need to hear or see, and this is one of them.
Sorry, but I am not gonna click that link.

I think there is a line that should not be crossed here at Jemsite. And this is over it.

Just my opinion.

A truly sick story and a sick man. It makes you wonder what the world is becoming when this happens. You don't see animals behaving in such a way towards each other, and yet we're supposed to be the superior race?

I do think ignoring such stories though is basically sticking your head in the sand. Pretending something isn't happening doesn't make it go away. Discussion can help enlighten and overcome many problems.

If it was a movie, we'd say how far-fetched the whole sick thing was.

In this case, truth is sicker than fiction.

I have no problems with the news. But the post was made for shock value, not for enlightenment or to bring awareness to people trapped in basements.

I am not pretending that this didnt happen, I am just choosing to use my personal filter. Others may have other stories they dont like to hear. I choose stories with sadism, cruelty, abuse.

I know that they exist, I just choose to not use them for entertainment or to kill time.

This how the guy looks like according to the news. He has that cold look in his eyes that just scared the **** out of me.
