Infuriated with Rolling Stones Magazine
I am a firm believer in freedom of press and speech. I believe that in America we have the right to put whatever we like in our papers and say whatever we like about our politicians. This, however, has gone WAY too far. I am infuriated. Recently, I have found this little ball of shame inside myself…it’s slowly uncurling…I am ashamed to be American. I have always been proud of my nation, I salute my soldiers, and I never let the flag touch the floor. I have always believed that we’ve got it right but the blinders have been removed and I simply cannot agree with this nation any longer.
We have to stop humanizing murderers. We have started treating these monsters like they are celebrities and it’s sickening. What in the world would possess Rolling Stones to put this on their cover? He killed people, he maimed people, and he hid like a coward in a boat. He doesn’t deserve the cover of anything and he certainly does not need to be depicted as a rock star. Sick sick sick. I am so infuriated by this, I don’t think I can even express myself logically at this point. Why didn’t they put a cover up of the victims? The eight year old little boy who was just there to see his dad finish the marathon? What about him? What a kick in the teeth for those that he was responsible for killing.
Bad form Rolling Stones, bad form.
