I watch two soaps on television daily but not much else. Why? Because lately programmes seem to be more educational than entertaining. I use the word educational loosely but it does teach me about the world and the people in it.
I watch television in the evenings, a time when I want something relaxing to look at. Instead I am faced with violence, violence and more violence. Shouting, screaming, screeching, fighting, murdering, is it any wonder the world has developed into a fighting ring?
Don’t TV people realise what they are doing, or that they must be held responsible for the way young kids act? Younger minds will and do think that what they see on telly is normal behaviour in real life.
As for parents who murder their young children ... well, quite honestly, if I knew of one personally it would give me great pleasure in making sure that life behind bars is the best place for her or him. What a pity the death penalty no longer exists!
It’s knives where I live, in a former respectable area. Knives to kill and maim and mostly used by teenagers. What the hell is going on? What has led up to this new craze of killing? People are stabbed as they walk up the road, stabbed for merely being there. I am grateful for the fact that I no longer go out shopping.
I ask myself… why are these oafs allowed to continue? Why are knives so freely available? Why, why, why???
And people wonder why I would like to see the return of the death penalty.
