When did death threats become such casual fair? Starting to wonder how it effects the youth when they see irate adult people acting so aggressively without a single repercussion. Threatening murder is just an expression, kids, with zero effects on anyone and a whole lot of you feeling ultra macho and accomplished after bullying the fuck out of someone, especially if they are largely innocent(???) Human decency and empathy are for (enter politicized scapegoat). Feel life going outta control? Definitely don't look at the system or culture or billionaires, just pick on an easy target to get your rocks off. The worst of humanity on neon display...maybe I'm being too sensitive, because threatening murder is just low level terrorism. Just people expressing their heartfelt feelings against the *actual bullies, right?
