comments on this from another source:

"This sort of thing is pretty routine in third world countries. Things like Democracy, Rule of Law, Empathy etc, are first world luxuries."

Ron - sad but true.
first world countries destroy through force of law more readily than physical violence.
but, it's the same dark heart.

first, i pray this is not true. that it did not happen.
i've read elsewhere, it might not be true, i.e., it might have been ("bar room bragging.")
then, prayers for all involved.

The way the headline reads, you'd think that everyone was killed, but in reality it was about 20%. Undoubtedly tragic, but I just assumed the worst when I saw "massacre"

Isn't it sick? The ghastly industires people are so willingly turning a blind eye to for the pursuit of their own lusts? We know the dirty business behind all of the prestigious things to wear, but our culture continues to idolize those who adorn themselves in them.

at first, i read about this from several sources, my first impression was that all were murdered, but, reading more, saw that was not the case. however, a loss like this in such a small, vulnerable group, could quickly lead to total loss, i pray this will not happen.

our culture isn't alone in desiring rare commodities. there are world markets without any standards. :(
